Conde Nast Traveler unveils hot list

Conde Nast Traveler’s 10th annual May
“Hot List” issue is the insider’s guide to the newest, hottest, sexiest
hotels, restaurants, spas, and nightclubs opened all over the world in
the past year.To develop the list, the magazine’s editors checked out
hundreds of new properties around the globe, rigorously evaluating each
one on a standard set of criteria. The result is a definitive guide to
the world’s most exciting new establishments.

The Hot List features 130 new hotels and resorts, 82 new restaurants, 25
new nightclubs and for the first time, 55 hot new spas whose design,
service, location, (and, if appropriate, food) transcend industry
standards. Conde Nast Traveler’s editorial staff sifted through the sea
of properties that opened in the past year, and called upon a global
network of editors and field reporters to visit each one.

The hotel findings show amazing diversity—from Tasmania’s exquisite
3- bedroom Avalon Coastal Retreat to Shanghai’s 511-room behemoth,
Regent. Hot and trendy doesn’t have to mean pricey. Check out—and
into—34 of the hottest hotels under $200-per-night. The 130 hotels
