Nobu Hospitality says a whopping 5 new hotels are opening this year in Atlantic City, New Jersey; Marrakech, Morocco; Rome, Italy; San Sebastián, Spain; and Toronto, Canada.

Here’s what you should know about the chain’s expansion.

More Nobu Hotels Opening Worldwide

Nobu Hospitality, which operates high-end hotels and restaurants worldwide, plans to open new hotels in Atlantic City, Marrakech, Rome, San Sebastián, and Toronto.

Nobu hasn’t released many details on any of the new properties, but it says they’re all set to open in 2023. The Rome hotel will boast 122 guest rooms, including a 5,300 square foot “Nobu Suite,” while the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant San Sebastián will feature just 20 guest rooms and suites in addition to a restaurant seating 98 guests.

In 2021, Nobu Hospitality Founder Robert de Niro had this to say about the Nobu Rome: “Rome is an extraordinary mix of high culture, the arts, fashion, and historic architecture. And so, we are honored now to be able to be a part of the Eternal City through this thrilling opening.”

Last June, Nobu announced it would expand across North America with properties in Orlando, Florida, and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

The Nobu website says more hotels and residences are opening in the coming years, including locations in Bangkok, Thailand; São Paulo, Brazil; and Tel Aviv, Israel. And in 2026, the chain is set to open a hotel and beach club in Abu Dhabi.

The Nobu hospitality brand was founded in 1994 and has over a dozen hotels in destinations like Ibiza, Spain; London, United Kingdom; and Malibu, California. The brand also has 50 restaurants featuring Japanese cuisine and an impressive drink menu in global hotspots like the Bahamas, Dubai, New York, and Tokyo.

Nobu has a high-end reputation, so these hotels likely won’t come cheap. For instance, a night at the Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay can cost as much as $700 per night for dates this spring — and be prepared to add an extra $100 if you want breakfast.
