Tofino Resort + Marina
The new Tofino Resort + Marina in Canada has 62 guestrooms, two waterfront dining venues, a marina and adventure center.
Signature waterfront restaurant 1909Kitchen offers a shared-plate concept with Chef Paul Moran at the helm, showcasing produce sourced and foraged from Tofino’s ocean, shoreline and forests. The Hatch Waterfront Pub is Tofino’s social hub, offering a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere.
The guestrooms offer marina, ocean or mountain views, oversized balconies, king beds and wall wraps created by photographer Jeremy Koreski.
Located by the marina, the Adventure Centre completes the resort experience and offers a variety of activities: bear and whale watching; daytrips to Tofino’s hot springs; fresh and saltwater fishing excursions; heli-picnics on remote beaches; and free-diving adventures.
Radisson Hotel Curicó
The new Radisson Hotel Curicó in Chile has 90 guestrooms and suites.
A terrace on the eighth floor offers a view of the city. Guests can enjoy a meal without leaving the hotel, as an on-site restaurant serves a complimentary breakfast, along with lunch and dinner.
Since the city is known for its wine, the local award-winning winery and vineyard, Miguel Torres, opened a wine shop in the hotel lobby. Along with featuring Miguel Torres wine, the shop offers other varieties of wine from 12 local vineyards. There is also an on-site wine connoisseur who shares tips on must-visit wineries, along with coordinating winery tours for guests.
Rosewood Phnom Penh
Rosewood Phnom Penh in Cambodia is located at the top of the 39-story Vattanac Capital Tower.
Designed by Melbourne’s BAR Studio, with two restaurants created by Tokyo-based Bond Design Studio, the interior of the ultra-luxury hotel aims to capture the essence of the country with a blend of Khmer architectural aspects, the country’s French colonial heritage and Cambodian craft techniques, all embraced by a subtle classic-meets-contemporary style, according to the company.
The hotel’s residential-style guestrooms are among the largest in Phnom Penh, with a total of 175 rooms including 37 suites. Their design includes large, round, window-facing tables that double as dining or work space.
