Global hospitality company Selina plans to open three new properties in Miami and New Orleans by the end of April. Having opened its first location in the United States—the Selina Chelsea NYC—in December 2019, the company plans to debut its second this month and its third and fourth in Miami in March and April.

Selina Catahoula New Orleans, with 118 beds from community rooms to suites, will feature music programming from up and coming artists. In downtown Miami, the 334-bed Selina Miami River will offer wellness retreats and open-air yoga classes and feature a weekend artisan market showcasing local businesses. Slated to open this April, the 272-bed Selina Gold Dust will include a cabana-style swim club.

The new openings will lead the way for further expansion in additional U.S. markets later this year, with a total of 12 Selina properties currently in different stages of development in the United States. The three openings in New Orleans and Miami will bring the company’s global count to 65 properties.
