Upcoming marquee hotel openings include:
- Kimpton Da An Hotel – Taipei, Taiwan
Poised for a spring 2019 unveiling, Kimpton Da An is an urban sanctuary in the heart of Taipei, bridging the historic Zhongshan and Datong districts together with the modern, upscale Xinyi district. The hotel’s interior design will celebrate the area’s heritage with artistic modernity and traditional craftsmanship. Expect lush botanicals, light-filled spaces and a restaurant – The Tavernist – offering playful modern cuisine led by former Noma chef, James Sharman.
- Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel – Edinburgh, Scotland
Opening in spring 2019, Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel will consist of seven interconnected Georgian-style townhouses that blend traditional glamour with modern-day Scotland. Overlooking a beautiful private garden square, located in the heart of the city centre, everything from the glass-topped central courtyard to the locally loved Middle Eastern restaurant provides an ideal haven in the Scottish capital.
- Kimpton Kawana Bay Resort – Grenada, Caribbean
Marking Kimpton’s second Caribbean resort and slated to open in early 2020, Kimpton Kawana Bay will be a 220-room luxury hillside retreat located between tropical rainforest cliffs and the world-renowned Grand Anse Beach. All rooms feature spectacular ocean views and a number of suites will have private pools. The name of the resort itself, Kawana Bay, pays homage to the area’s native leatherback turtles, named Kawana, a fixture on the Spice Island.
- Kimpton Bali – Bali, Indonesia
The natural beauty of the Nusa Dua coastline and lush volcanic hillsides make for a perfect backdrop to Kimpton Bali, opening in 2020. Here, 50 luxury villas serve as a lifestyle sanctuary that will embrace local Balinese culture while delivering a genuine experience on the Island of the Gods.
