LUX* Resorts & Hotels, a small collection of totally clutch retreats who pride themselves on surprising guests with “delightful pop-up treats”, has just unveiled a few more treats–four new properties, all opening by 2017.

Coming next month is a second LUX* resort in Yunnan, China, along the LUX* Tea Horse Road. Set on the edge of the Yangtze river, the LUX* Tea Horse Road Benzalin has 30 rooms, each with killer views of the snow-capped peaks of Baima Snow Mountains as well as the tranquil Tibetan villages nearby.


Next up is a second property on Reunion Island, the eco-friendly LUX* Sud Sauvage, which should open in the second half of 2016 “in the island’s green corridor” on Côte Sauvage. This concept features private villas, each with their own pools.

And there’s another double-act taking place in the Maldives with the LUX* North Male Atoll. (There’s already a LUX* in the South Ari Atoll, which is currently undergoing a makeover.) This ultra-modern island resort will also have private villas, with their own pools, indoor/outdoor living spaces, and wraparound decking. This will open in the second half of 2016.

LUX* will make their debut in the Middle East with LUX* Al Zorah. Just 30 minutes from the Dubai International Airport, Al Zorah is a bio-diverse coastal oasis with all the resort amenities vacationing travelers hope for–from a sandy beach, to a championship golf course, to exotic watersports (fly boarding, anyone?) This LUX* will have 191 rooms, suites, and private villas, along with 60 branded luxury residences when it opens in 2017. Putting these dates in our calendar now.
