Whether you get there by boat, car or private jet charter, your hotel should match your luxury mode of transportation. Here are three of the finest hotels that have won a special place in our hearts.
1. Beverly Hills Hotel, Los Angeles
This landmark is a glamorous celebrity retreat tucked into the heart of LA’s most exclusive neighborhood. There are many reasons to love your stay at the Beverly Hills, from its larger-than-life tales of the Golden Age of Hollywood to its heavenly poolside ambiance.
You have your choice of lavishly appointed suites and sophisticated dining here, but the can’t-miss attraction isn’t the Polo Lounge, in our opinion. It’s the Beverly Hills Spa by La Prairie, a 1,916-square foot spa with six treatment rooms, two couple’s suites and a decadent menu of signature services. La Prairie’s luxury facials, body treatments and nail services will restore and rejuvenate even the weariest of travelers.
2. Aria Hotel, Prague
From its ruby-shingled, gabled roof to its private access to the Vrtbovska Garden, the Aria Hotel is a feast for the eyes. Maybe it’s this hotel’s way of translating the ephemeral beauty of the music and composers that it acts as a shrine to.
Each of the fifty-one suites in the Aria Hotel, which was once a theater, is dedicated to a specific style of music, composer or artist, with richly decorated rooms that celebrate talents like Beethoven, Mozart and Billie Holliday. Coupled with the hotel’s prime location in the Little Quarter of Prague and its amenities like gourmet food and wine, it’s no surprise that TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice awards deemed this hotel number one in the Czech Republic.
3. Cap Maison, St. Lucia
The Caribbean is rife with beautiful luxury hotels, making it difficult to choose just one. The Cap Maison comes out on top not just for its oceanfront location on a private beach—which we are by no means complaining about, but those features are easy to come by in the Caribbean. What wins us over about the Cap Maison is The Cliff at Cap Restaurant. This gourmet dining establishment serves Caribbean and French fusion food five days of the week, and switches it up with Tapas on Saturdays and Creole-inspired cuisine on Sundays. It’s easily the best dining experience in the Caribbean.
