Incoming: 10 hot new hotels you need to know!

Tripadvisor’s revealed its top ten Travellers’ Choice Hottest New Hotels in the World 2022 and we’re here for them. From an adult-only Himalayan hideaway to a family favourite in Brazil, it's all the travel inspo we need for the year ahead.

There’s nothing we like more at Muddy Stilettos Travel than looking at dreamy pictures of far-flung destinations (ok we prefer visiting them IRL, but sadly that’s not alway possible), so when Tripadvisor let us know they’d rated all the site’s reviews in the last 12 months and found the ten most popular new hotels in the world, we were interested. Ranging from villa thrillers in Indonesia to marine reserves in Belize and a delectable design destination in Italy, scroll down to see where everyone’s rating 5.0.  

1. Adiwana Suweta, Ubud, Indonesia

Surrounded by jungle close to Ubud, Bali’s cultural heart, this is the hotel everyone’s raving about and giving a perfect 5.0. What makes it so great? Oh, you know, probably just the stunning setting close to Ubud palace, pool villas, infinity pool, absurdly good restaurant and £117pn rate…

2. Hotel Carroção, Tatui, Brazil

This resort is a major hit with families. Forget lame kids’ clubs, we’re talking giant dinosaur fossils, replica planes, obstacle courses, an aquarium, mazes – they’ll even pitch a tent in your bedroom!

3. Demo Hotel Design Emotion, Rimini, Italy

An experimental hotel on the Italian coast bringing together 14 architects across nine suites and eclectic communal areas .The result? It’s a one-of-a-kind wonder.

4. The Lyle Washington DC, USA

Number four is a super-tasteful boutique hotel occupying a 1940s Art Deco apartment building in the centre of the city with great views, hip restaurant and sumptuous bedrooms. What’s not to love?

5. Sanora Villa, Sanur, Indonesia

Peace, tranquility, a golden beach and a private pool villa are what’s in store at this escape in sleepy Sanur, a coastal town on Bali’s southeast coast.

6. Vatsyayana Resort, Almora, India

The snow-capped mountain views from this Himalayan foothills resort are so incredible they alone are worth a gushing review, though sounds like guests also rate the classic bedrooms, food and spa too.

7. 56 Surawong Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand

A lesson in taste and simplicity, this calm oasis is actually just steps from restaurants, nightlife and the SkyTrain. A great place to return to after a day in the buzzing city to hit the honesty bar before sinking into bed.

8. Manta Island Resort, Belize

All-inclusive, private island resort slap bang in the middle of a marine reserve and World Heritage Site, where you can dive and snorkel with sharks, rays, dolphins and a kaleidoscope of tropical fish. *Books flight immediately*.

9. Dinara Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Another beautiful Bali boutique escape for savvy travellers seeking a chilled experience near cool cultural hub Ubud. Contemporary design’s blended with traditional touches to create a unique retreat that’s gone down a storm with happy guests.

10. 1 Homes Preview Cabo, Mexico

Look at that view…You need more reasons why this is a hit? Ok, well it overlooks swimmable Medano Beach, is next to famous Marina Cabo San Lucas and apparently everyone falls in love with the pool and food truck at this new hot spot.
