The hottest new hotels in Asia are opening in 2019

(CNN) – It's pretty cocktail.

With more than half of the world's population, huge infrastructure projects and the rapid expansion of air connections, the Asia-Pacific region attracts more international tourists from anywhere in the world.

UNWTO puts the total tourist profits from the Asian countries to a cool $ 390 billion, many of which come from the hotel sector.

So it is not surprising that almost every Asia-Pacific destination that you can think of seems to open up new places to stay.

Now, here are some of the hottest new spots in the area due to the open – and in one case, the re-opening – for businesses in 2019.
