Tiny eco resorts. Grand luxury hotels. Rarefied retreats. The Caribbean’s newest hotels for 2022 are a melange of styles and sensibilities, from all-inclusive to boutique and everywhere in between.
Even amid the pandemic, the Caribbean hotel pipeline keeps growing, and that includes a number of highly-anticipated openings set for this year, from the Mexican Caribbean to tiny islands like Dominica.
Check out the openings we’re most excited about this year in the latest edition of the New List.
Sandals Curacao The first-ever Sandals resort in the Dutch Caribbean, it’s also one of the most anticipated new Sandals resorts. A transformation of the former Santa Barbara resort, the completely remade resort will be set on 3,000 acres, with 350 rooms and suites and a collection of seaside bungalows with their own private plunge pools. That’s along with other new additions for the brand, from a “floating restaurant” to a fleet of Mini Coopers. It’s set to welcome guests on April 14.
