The St. Regis Kanai Resort, situated in a nature reserve on the Yucatán Peninsula, and a new opening in Chicago will expand its footprint in Mexico and the US. It will bring its Butler Service to Belgrade and finally two properties are set to open in Saudi Arabia. One will be on an island in the Red Sea project and the other will be a brand debut in the capital city of Riyadh.
In 2023, the brand is targeting openings in Prague, Budapest, Edinburgh, Sydney, Macau, and Milan. Later in the year, two new properties in the United States are expected to open their doors, W New York – Union Square and W Hollywood.
Over the course of the next year, EDITION is aiming to grow its portfolio by 6 properties, to a total of 21. Expected openings are set for Rome, Riviera Maya at Kanai, Tokyo, Ginza, Singapore, Jeddah, and Doha. These include brand debuts in Italy, Mexico, and Southeast Asia.

Whether it’s a focus on nurturing closer relationships, a desire to be more present, or finding ways to make a positive impact, across our luxury brands we are evolving to allow our guests to focus on what they believe matters most. As we grow our portfolio of luxury hotels and resorts in some of the most iconic and compelling destinations globally, our expanding footprint allows us to offer the transformative experiences that lead to a renewed sense of purpose and enhanced mental and physical well-being for the modern luxury traveller.

We are looking to the great reimaginers, people who perceive crises as moments of opportunity to rethink their lives and reimagine the world around them. Our collective mindset has changed from viewing travel as a luxury commodity to an activity vital to overall well-being. More than ever before, our guests are prioritising more meaningful travel and time spent with loved ones, looking for experiences that reflect their personal values and enhance their overall quality of life.
