“We’re excited about this season’s new hotel members as they truly demonstrate the diversity of Leading’s collection,” commented Deniz Omurgonulsen, Vice President, Member Experience, The Leading Hotels of the World. “Our mission as a community, is to support independence and innovation in hospitality around the world. We couldn’t be happier to welcome these new additions to our carefully-curated collection, and to inspire curious travelers to discover their stories for themselves.”
All of the four new properties are available to book through Leaders Club, The Leading Hotels of the World’s loyalty program.
