The Edge, Bali
In the village of Pecatu, along Bali's southern cliffs, the Edge is perhaps the island’s most extravagant lodging, with just three villas perched 262 feet above the crashing waves. This swanky hideaway, which is about two hours from Ubud, spoils guests with six swimming pools, a cinema, unbroken 180-degree views and a spa fit for the Buddha himself.
Saffire Freycinet, Australia
Freycinet National Park is one of the most unspoiled natural wonders in Tasmania, and the 20-suite Saffire Freycinet was conceived in the same spirit. The avant-garde architecture is composed of local stone and wood, and floor-to-ceiling windows frame bewitching views of crystal clear Great Oyster Bay and the changing colors of the Hazard Mountains. A stay here takes you back to nature — with all the creature comforts.
Sparkling Hill, Canada
Chiseled into a mountaintop above British Columbia’s Okanagan Lake, this 152-room, wellness-focused retreat radiates light through the 3.5 million Swarovski crystals ($10 million worth) integrated into everything from light fixtures to the swimming pool. But the bling isn’t even the highlight of this hotel, the views are. And they’re best enjoyed from the freestanding tub in your bathroom (which stands beneath a crystal-studded ceiling, natch).
Constance Moofushi, Maldives
In the South Ari Atoll, a premier dive spot, the all-inclusive Constance Moofushi is a mecca for lovebirds seeking a Robinson Crusoe–esque escape. But you can forget making like a castaway: This is island living in serious style. Get a spectacular birds-eye view of the atoll as you arrive via seaplane and then slow your pace down by luxuriating in the comfort of a stilted Water Villa, with stairways that descend directly into the electric blue Indian Ocean.
Fregate Private Island Hotel, Seychelles
Talk about a grand entrance: Arrive by helicopter and survey the emerald expanse of this private Seychelles island sleep, happily marooned in the Indian Ocean. Personal butler service and infinity pools (with mind-blowing views) come standard with the 17 mahogany villas, and you can reserve your own private stretch of sugary sand, complete with a “do not disturb” sign. And your neighbors? They range from Brobdingnagian tortoises to Technicolor birds.
One & Only Capetown, South Africa
Located on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and a favorite among high-profile celebs, One&Only Cape Town's 131 rooms (each with a private outdoor space) treat guests to unparalleled Table Mountain or harbor views. But perhaps the best way to take in the undulating vistas is from the Wine Loft and Vista Bar, which showcases over 5,000 bottles and 80 wines by the glass, with a strong emphasis on both highly acclaimed and undiscovered South African vintages.
Hotel Paradies, Switzerland
On a plateau in Switzerland’s Lower Engadine region, Hotel Paradies is a remote retreat overlooking the snow-covered peaks of the Dolomites. Built by Swiss painter Hans Walter Bayer in 1910, the hotel is dotted with antiques and works by local artists. Enjoy a meal at the hotel’s Michelin-starred L’Autezza – with only seven tables, sweeping views of the Sesvenna Mountain Range, super-attentive service and stunning presentation, you'll feel as though you've been transported to a gastronomic dreamscape.
Hezen Cave Hotel, Turkey
Built in 2011, the colorful Hezen Cave Hotel is in the heart of the village of Ortahisar, a central base for exploring the famed landscapes of Cappadocia. Here, sleeping in a luxuriously kitted out cave room rivals sipping sunset cocktails on the carved stone terrace, which overlooks a gigantic rock castle and is a perfect spot for stargazing.
Constance Ephelia, Seychelles
The family-friendly Constance Ephelia resort is located on the west coast of Mahé and features two private beaches. The 267 suites and villas overlook Port-Launay’s turquoise waters and the verdant hills of Marine National Park. Most have their own living and dining area and an outdoor deck with a private pool, some which dangle above the emerald bay. Those wanting to heighten their senses can fly above takamaka trees on one of the resort's eight zip lines.
Banyan Tree Bangkok, Thailand
Towering above Bangkok’s city center, the 327-room Banyan Tree takes sultry luxury and unabashed pampering to new heights. After checking in, take the elevator straight to the 61st floor, where you’ll find the sexiest rooftop lounge in Southeast Asia. Shaped like the front of a giant ocean liner anchored high above a sea of neon and steel, the open-air Moon Bar has vertigo-inducing 360-degree views. It’s an intoxicating introduction to Thailand’s titanic capital.
