These new and renovated properties in St. Lucia, Honolulu, Miami and St. Barth serve to remind you—it’s summertime somewhere.
Ladera Resort, St. Lucia
Host your next Caribbean incentive or event by creating your own island retreat on St. Lucia. Perched on a volcano ridgeline, this treehouse-esque, adults-only resort just unveiled LeFleur, a private space complete with infinity pool. And for the first time, the resort is offering complete buyout of the 37-suite property.
The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach
Honolulu’s newest luxury resort opens its second tower on October 15, marking completion of Oahu’s first Ritz-Carlton Residences. The 38-story, 245-residence Diamond Head Tower introduces 10 meeting and event spaces to the property, including a boardroom and movie theater. The 22,000-square-foot Lauula Park can host a reception for up to 800 attendees.
Hyde Hotel & Residences Midtown Miami
Inspired by Miami’s pulsating art scene, the latest hotel from lifestyle hospitality company SBE is awash in contemporary artworks. The seventh-floor rooftop doubles as an amenity floor, with an infinity pool, outdoor bar/restaurant, tennis and bocce courts, a putting green and a glass-walled business center that can become an event space.
Le Sereno St. Barth
After a complete rebuild following Hurricane Irma, St. Barth’s most iconic hotel, on the ultra-private, beachfront Grand Cul de Sac, has a new look from top to bottom, including an expanded room count, a new restaurant, spa and more. Sustainability drove the redo—there’s now an on-site water desalinization facility, for example. The hotel begins welcoming guests in December.
