7 of the Most Stunning Room Views from Luxury Hotels

In these hotels, staying in bed still counts as sightseeing—the views are that good. So order room service, draw a bath, and hang the “Do Not Disturb” sign…we won’t judge you one bit.

Singapore, Singapore

Capella Singapore

Located on Sentosa Island, Capella Singapore’s many rooms have whirlpool baths on their terraces from which to admire the South China Sea. Order some Singaporean laksa noodles and sip the hotel’s custom rum, Navegante, while enjoying a photogenic soak.

St. John’s, Antigua

Jumby Bay Island

This 300-acre private island is an all-inclusive resort with just 40 rooms, which means any trip here is pretty much stress-free. Beachside Suites at the Jumby Bay Island put guests just steps from the sand, and offer an outdoor shower and soaking tub set in a private courtyard. The Pool Suite and Estate Suite have the added benefit of private pools.

Wolgan Valley, Australia

Emirates One&Only, Wolgan Valley

Set on a 7,000-acre preserve, all of the rooms at the Emirates One&Only, Wolgan Valley are freestanding villas with views of the Australian Bush and the Greater Blue Mountains. You don’t need to go hiking or horseback riding to get close to nature here, so whether you’re in your pool or stretched out by a grand stone fireplace, keep your eyes out for wallabies, wombats, kangaroos, parrots, and wallaroos. (That said, we recommend not skipping the campfire-lit stargazing excursions offered by the resort for a unique experience of the pure night sky, free from light pollution.)

Koh Samui, Thailand

Conrad Koh Samui

Book a room with its own private infinity plunge pool terraced into the hillside at Conrad Koh Samui, and you can admire the Gulf of Thailand and spectacular rainforest greenery while enjoying Thai iced tea. Sure, snorkeling or taking a Thai boxing class sounds like fun, but we suspect it will be hard to tear yourself away from your own private pool.

Cancun, Mexico

NIZUC Resort and Spa

There are 274 rooms in the mangroves along the Caribbean coast, but sea dogs looking for shore views should book one of the adults-only Ocean Suites, all of which have terraces complete with day beds. Order a bottle of the NIZUC house wine and listen to the foamy waves hit the sand as you unwind.

Cartagena, Colombia

Casa San Agustin

Set within this intimate colonial boutique hotel, the Suite del Virrey at Casa San Agustin is graced with terraces that overlook the city’s iconic tiled rooftops and cobblestone-lined streets, as well as an outdoor whirlpool tub, lounge chairs, and an al fresco dining space. Snack on arepas as you look for city landmarks like the domed cupola of the cathedral, the 16th-century fortified walls, and the University of Cartagena. For a less decadent room choice, opt for a third-floor deluxe room and enjoy the picturesque views.

Mykonos, Greece

Bill & Coo Mykonos

Each of the suites has a private terrace with views of the Aegean Sea and the white-washed ancient city. But if you can, splurge on the Bill & Coo Suite, in which the minimalist design pairs elegantly with the infinity pool, its edge seemingly melting into the sea.
