The view is often the best thing about your hotel room, and while silk sheets, butler services and private plunge pools all add to the allure, it’s that spectacular landscape that truly makes it feel special. From views of the Taj Mahal from your tub, to seeing Machu Picchu’s peak while sipping your morning coffee, here are the world’s best rooms with a view.
Tierra Patagonia, Chile
Situated in the vast Patagonian wilderness in southern Chile, the Tierra Patagonia provides modern design with unrivalled views of Lake Sarmiento and the UNESCO World Heritage Torres del Paine National Park beyond. Here you can lie in bed marvelling at the picture perfect snow-capped peaks.
Intercontinental, Hong Kong
At the Hotel Intercontinental in Hong Kong you can look out of your window and watch the dazzling light show over Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. Here you truly are in the thick of it all.
Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, Peru
Being the only hotel with views of Machu Picchu, Orient Express’s Sanctuary Lodge is something special. Here you get to be one of the first people watching the verdant green peaks rise through the mist each morning and one of the last people at night to see the sun setting behind the mystical Inca city.
Qasra Al Sarab Antara, UAE
Waking up to a view across the blonde sands of the Liwa Desert at the Qasra Al Sarab makes you feel so small against the world’s immense landscapes, and nothing says Arabian charm like the view of camels riding across the sun soaked dunes.
The Oberoi Amarvilas, India
For one of the most romantic rooms with a view, stay at the Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra where the elegant Taj Mahal appears at your window bathed in a milky pink light from morning until night.
Cavallo Point, USA
Sitting at the foot of San Francisco’s magnificent Golden Gate Bridge, the Cavallo Point hotel is one of the best places to sit and admire its architectural beauty. Sit on your balcony in the evening enjoying a drink under the glow of this iconic landmark and you’ll feel like you definitely have the best view in the whole city.
