Luxury hotels are measured by the services they provide their guests, but without great views nothing else matters.These are the best suites with a view.
If you’ve ever stayed in one of these over-water luxury hotels you probably know that the best thing they offer is your proximity to the sea. No matter how soft the sheets on the bed are, or how large your private pool is, what matters most is that they enable you to practically live on water. And when finding your next luxury vacation spot you should always try and find places that are going to offer you the most of each place. For example, these spa resorts excel in providing you with a peaceful environment where you can relax and rest, but what happens when your luxury vacations take you away from peace and throw you in the jungle that are today’s world capitals?
Surely you won’t be able to find the kind of relaxing environment you’d get in a beach luxury resort in a city, but that doesn’t matter because that’s not what you should be looking for anyway. When visiting a city you visit its vibrant environment and landmarks and before you book a luxury hotel that costs a fortune make sure that you’ll be able to experience the vibe from your luxury hotel room as well.
So rather than searching for a hotel that features a Michelin-star restaurant or an award winning bar make sure that you look for a hotel that has commanding views. A room with a view is the most a luxury hotel can offer and if you want to get the real feel of a city you should ensure that you’ve booked the room with the best view.
The list below features the suites with the best views in the world and although there are definitely more luxury hotels all over the world, when you have the Eiffel Tower at your feet then you know that you’re in the suite with the best view in the world.
