The Latest Hotel Openings and Refurbishments From Small Luxury Hotels

Anya Resort Tagaytay

Meeting planners looking for small, luxury venues may want to check out the latest openings and refurbishments from Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH). The luxury hotel collection of over 500 hotels in 80 countries has released a look at its newest properties in locations across Asia and Europe.

New Hotels

Anya Resort Tagaytay, Tagaytay, Philippines

Anya Resort Tagaytay has 64 rooms and the design of the buildings flows with the slopes of Tagaytay’s ridges. Guests are encouraged to explore the seven hectares of gardens overlooking pineapple fields, refresh in a tranquil pool, relax with a book from the “borderless library” or jog along the canopy-lined nature trail. Each guest is assigned their own Lifestyle Assistant for the duration of their stay who will personally prepare their suite and customize every detail, whether is sourcing a favourite soap or serving a bespoke meal on their private terrace. Led by Chef Emmanuel Stroobant the restaurant highlights the freshest local produce and promises a truly healthy yet indulgent dining experience.

SLH Insider Tip: Enjoy a milk and rose bath at the hotel’s Niyama spa.

Zhenze Waterside House Boutique Hotel, Suzhou, China

On the outskirts of Shanghai, the Jiang Nan river runs through the town of Zhenze, a peaceful setting with stone bridges, old pagodas, blossoming gardens and traditional timber-framed houses. Here, travellers will find the nine-room Zhenze Waterside House. The Garden Restaurant, located in the middle of the inner lake, comes complete with a Pingtan performance (if requested), a form of singing poetry dating back hundreds of years. The hotel has a teahouse where guests can taste Biluochun tea, a local speciality, in a traditional ceremony; or, a personal butler can escort guests to shop and customize a traditional Qipao dress.

SLH Insider Tip: The town is famous for being the birthplace of silk in China – if you visit the Silk Museum at the right time you can see a room full of silk worms, eating mulberry leaves and spinning cocoons.

Hotel Gajoen Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan

Located in the hip neighbourhood of Meguro, the Hotel Gajoen Tokyo has been open since 1928 as the ‘Palace of the Dragon God.’ It’s a great balance between past and present: The polished entrance hall contains the original Invitation Gate of Meguro Gajoen, antique features include carved wooden panels and Japanese lacquer work, and the Hyakudan Kaidan gallery is filled with Japanese pre-war art. There are three restaurants: Shunyuki, a Tokyo take on Chinese medicinal cuisine; Tofutei, serving classic Japanese dishes; and Canoviano, set up by Takamasa Uektake, a pioneer of Italian cuisine in Japan.

SLH Insider Tip: Get a true Japanese experience by opting for traditional tatami suite complete with hinoki cypress bathtub.
