Each year, a list of new hotel openings around the world is compiled by Hotelchatter. This is a progressive and interactive list (blue highlighted hotels are a direct link to the official hotel website), which is updated weekly, through authentic hotel sources. This is by no means a complete list, but it is one of the more comprehensive globally.
Hopefully this may inspire or compliment your ideas for travel this year.
