2017 is more than halfway through, and there are a few brands that TopHotelNews' TOPHOTELPROJECTS have their eye on that we think should be on your radar before the year is out. 

Six Senses

Six Senses is one of our favourites for being cutting edge in terms of wellness and sustainability, and for their local involvement, whether it be supporting local vineyards in Portugal or organising volunteer work in Vietnamese communities.

Thompson Hotels

Redefining the boutique luxury market, Thompson Hotels just keeps catching out attention. Recently features on the 2017 Conde Nast Traveler Hot List too, this brand’s urban locations and idyllic beach properties provide guests with a home away from home, if home was stylish, edgy and tailored to your every need.

Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

Rocco Forte Hotels

Rocco Forte Hotels’ particular brand of 5-star luxury offers guests the chance to live like royalty once they set foot within the walls of the hotel, something which keeps them in our sights. Each unique property has its own character and personality, whether it be in the centre of London or in the middle of a Russian city.

The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts

With hotels situated in some of India’s most incredibly awe-inspiring palaces, guests feel as if they have been transported to another world, one of exotic aristocracy and total relaxation.
