This year, tourists around the world not only choose the long-time prestigious hotels like Ritz-Carlton, Hilton and Shangri-La for their accommodation but also find some other new luxury hotels that tend to be eco-friendly and offer stunning city or natural views.
Olarro, Loita Hills in Kenya
Situated on Loita Hills, Kenya, Olarro becomes the next high-profile hideaway for tourists around the world. Thanks to designer Anthony Russell, the complex consists of seven thatched cottages and a two-bedroom villa, overlooking the Masai Mara National Reserve. While its tiled floors resemble giraffe markings, the billowing fabric ceilings inspire the feeling of a tented camp.
Furthermore, it is very interesting for those staying here to watch the annual wildebeest migration or enjoy after-dark safaris with night-vision goggles.
GoldenEye Hotel & Resort in Jamaica
The GoldenEye on the northern coast of Jamaica, where Ian Fleming wrote his James Bond novels to entertain audiences, is transformed from a normal property into a small but stylist hotel and resort with only 11 cottages and six suites along a white-sand beach and secluded lagoon by its current owner Chris Blackwell. This unique hideaway used to welcome some high-profile guests including Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
