What are the best luxury hotels of 2017?

CNN  — 

Bulgari Resort Dubai has been crowned the best new luxury hotel of 2017.

The lavish property, located on man-made island Jumeira Bay, came out on top in members-only travel ratings company Luxury Travel Intelligence’s annual list, beating off stiff competition from the likes of The Ned in London and Paris’ Hotel de Crillon.

Described as an “urban oasis,” the 158,000 square-meter complex, designed by renowned Italian architectural firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel, was credited for its structural design as well as its “understated” location.

While the Bulgari Resort Dubai may have taken the top spot, it certainly wasn’t the only new hotel that made a lasting impression.

Here’s the full list of LTI’s top 14 “truly exceptional” new hotels for a memorable stay:

1. Bulgari Resort Dubai

Bulgari Resort Dubai has been named the best new luxury hotel of 2017 by LTI -- Luxury Travel Intelligence.

“This sensational property impressed us so much it became this year’s last minute LTI top pick,” says LTI founder Michael Crompton.

“It is low level (just four floors), private and understated – everything most Dubai hotels are not. We also love its striking architecture.”

Covering over 13 hectares, this opulent resort located ten minutes from the city has an imposing low-rise design which sets it apart from typical Dubai hotels.

The Bulgari’s other selling points include a private beach club and beach, a 50-berth marina, a spa and an Italian restaurant headed up by chef Niko Romito.

“We have advised LTI members to go for a Beach Villa,” says Crompton.

2. The Ned, London

The panoramic rooftop area at The Ned offers views of St. Pauls Cathedral.

Set in the former headquarters of an international bank, this new London hotel from the Soho House group also won over the team at LTI, narrowly missing out on the number one spot.

The Ned was praised for its 3,000-square-meter lobby, separated by 92 verdite columns and rows of walnut banking counters, and its spacious rooftop, which offers views of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

“It’s big, bold and brave – and more New York that anything in New York itself,” says Crompton.

3. Villa La Coste, Provence

Villa  La Coste is made up of  28 suites, a spa, a library, a bar and a very impressive art collection.

Villa La Coste, a luxury hotel at the 600-acre Château La Coste organic winery in Provence, has 28 contemporary villa suites which all boast a private terrace and views over the Luberon.

“This unique property has the distinct feel of a private home,” explains Crompton.

One of the most notable aspects of the property, which was developed by Irish hotelier Paddy McKillen, is the artwork on display.
