Rooms with a View: The 4 Most Stunning Hotel Room Views in the World

Like buying a house, hotels are all about location, location, location. It’s not just what’s on the inside, but also the views outside the property. These four hotels offer some of the most amazing, one-of-a-kind hotel room views in the world.

Singita Serengeti House (Tanzania)

Singita Serengeti House

For most travelers, going on safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But, Singita Serengeti House offers something completely different by bringing the safari to its guests. The northern Tanzania luxury hotel is situated on more than 350,000 acres (half the size of the state of Rhode Island) of the Grumeti Reserve. All manner of wildlife, including elephant, buffalo, lion, giraffe, and cheetah, routinely roam the grounds. The lodge is also in the path of Africa’s Great Migration. By timing your visit right, you can witness one of the world’s most incredible natural events from your own private balcony.

Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort (Oman)

ANANTARA AL JABAL AL AKHDAR RESORT

If you can imagine vacationing on the surface of Mars (but with a cocktail bar and infinity pool), you can approximate what a stay at Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort feels like. The ultra-luxury resort is situated on the rim of a 6,500-foot-tall canyon in the vast, rugged wilds of Oman. Beyond the valley lies some of the country’s most remote villages, ancient forts and souks, and an endless expanse of desert landscape. The rooms are among the most luxurious in the Middle East, with private Jacuzzis, plunge pools, and outdoor showers. Given its location, it also boasts a surprising number of common amenities, including a shisha lounge, a state-of-the-art gym, a chef’s garden, and a full spa.

Coco Privé Private Island (the Maldives)

Coco Privé Private Island

Seemingly “floating” all alone in the vast Indian Ocean, it’s difficult to imagine a destination more beautiful than the islands of the Maldives. Until you see Coco Privé Private Island. This jaw-dropping oasis is 30 minutes by boat from the country’s only international airport. Upon arrival on the 3.5-acre private island, overnight guests can spread out between a master residence and five guest villas. The “room” also features a private kitchen with a personal chef, a cocktail bar and wine cellar, a reading library, a sauna, indoor/outdoor gyms, and a 130-foot pool. Naturally, every adventure experience is included, from windsurfing to catamaran sailing to unlimited scuba diving. All for the low, low price of USD $45,000 per night.

Explora Patagonia (Torres del Paine, Chile)

Explora Patagonia

If there are any bad views in Patagonia, we haven’t found them. The “End of the World” (as it’s often called) is home to some of the most dramatic landscapes on the planet. Chile’s Torres del Paine is ground zero for exploring the region, particularly for travelers with adventure in mind. Explora Patagonia is the only hotel within the park, and the views from every room are literally stunning. The interior design is Scandinavian simple to keep the focus on the glaciers, snow-capped summits, and mountain lakes right outside the windows. Off-property, guests can explore guided dozens of half-day treks on foot or horseback.
