The Best New Sustainable Hotels in the World: 2020 Hot List

For the 24th edition of the Hot List—our picks of the year’s top hotel and cruise openings—these four winners represent the best new sustainability-minded hotels in the world.

When our team of editors and contributors set off for a year of hopscotching the globe to put together Conde Nast Traveler’s Hot List, we could never have imagined that by the time we were able to announce our winners, we would be staying home for the foreseeable future. In 24 years of putting together this compendium of the latest and greatest industry openings, we’ve never published it in a year like this. Many on this list have had to, at least temporarily, close their newly opened doors. Even still, these winners prioritize environmental protection, salvaged materials like reclaimed woods, and community engagement, and quickly attracted the attention of travelers who value progressiveness over thread counts and room service. Though of course, you’ll find those comforts here, too, which make them a natural choice of stay when we can get back out there again. Below, the 2020 Hot List picks for the best new sustainability minded hotels of the past year.
