The world around us is full of unique places. Although the current situation does not allow us to travel, we can always dream with our eyes open and plan our next destinations after quarantine. From Beltá & Frajumar we have made a ranking of the 7 most spectacular hotels in the world for their design, location and incredible views. Prepare the suitcase that we are going!
1. Kakslauttanen, the igloo hotel in Finland
The Northern Lights are phenomena of nature that must be seen at least once in life. This 4-star resort located in the north of Lapland, is known as Villa igloo, because it is made up of twenty igloos with a glass ceiling so you can enjoy the sky comfortably from your bed. Unfortunately, due to the high demand for these glass igloos, you cannot spend more than one night, but the Kakslauttanen hotel offers you the possibility of later staying in one of its sixty snow igloos, equipped with thermal sleeping bags. Who has not dreamed as a child of sleeping in an igloo like a true Eskimo? They also have cabins to protect us from the polar cold next to a wood-burning fireplace. The best times to travel to this hotel and enjoy the Northern Lights are the months of January and March. Without a doubt, a spectacle of nature that you cannot miss!
2. Four Seasons Doha, Qatar
This amazing hotel is ideal for spending the summer holidays. Four Seasons Doha is located 250 meters from the beach, in the center of Doha. The hotel’s decor overflows elegance and Arabic touches. In addition, it has seven restaurants and lounges run by chef Giancarlo di Francesco. A true delight for the most sophisticated palates! One of the most prominent lounges is the Shisha Terrace, a building located on The Corniche in Doha, the city’s waterfront. Its incredible sea views and a romantic and relaxed atmosphere make the Shisha Terrace the best place to spend a magical evening. Beltá & Frajumar had the opportunity to design the furniture for this little paradise. Your Lebanese food is delicious. In short, a place to relax and enjoy the good weather!
3. Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp and Resort, Thailand
There are no words that describe this hotel. This hotel complex located in Chiang Langg is full of luxuries inside. The hotel entrance is colonial style, worthy of a temple. Stunning unusual views of Laos and Myanmar in all rooms and exquisite service. Best of all, this resort has become a haven for battered circus elephants, so you can have a very close experience with these animals. A dream trip for any couple!
4. Conrad Rangali Island Resort, Maldives
Have you ever dreamed of sleeping under the sea? This two-story hotel villa sits five meters below the surface of the Indian Ocean. Conrad Rangali Island Resort is considered the world’s first underwater residence. The complex has a bar, a gym and an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Its finest rooms are submerged underwater, where you can view the Maldivian seascape from a totally unique perspective.
5. Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, Spain
The shows of the best dj’s in the world just by going down to the garden. This is what Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel offers: the combination of the best adult entertainment with the best current music from the hands of the most recognized DJs on the planet. In this luxurious hotel complex you can enjoy a wide gastronomic variety through its five restaurants. It is divided into two accommodations, Ushuaïa Club with infinity pool near the stage and Ushuaïa Tower, so that you can enjoy the views that Ibiza offers in a more intimate and reserved way. From the latter, we have participated in the redesign project of its interior architecture carried out by Estudio Vila 13.
The interior design of The Ushuaïa Tower became a world reference in architecture, receiving the prestigious ‘European Hotel Design Awards’. The Ushuaïa Tower was a challenge to achieve the showiness that the hotel required with elements of nature.
6. Aescher, Switzerland
The Aescher hotel is located on one of the cliffs of the Swiss Alps. It’s a 2500 meter high hostel in the Alpsteingebiet region that has dreamlike views and a gastronomic proposal that will make you be in paradise. The hotel has a cozy atmosphere. The food is always homemade and the rooms are equipped with sleeping bags. To access the hotel you can walk or climb the cable car to reach it. Ideal for lovers of mountains and nature!
7. Four Seasons Bora Bora, French Polynesia
If you are looking for a relaxing trip, you must include Bora Bora to your wish list. In each of the villas of this hotel complex, you can breathe an authentic island atmosphere where Polynesian art and teak wood furniture are the protagonists. Its lush gardens surround infinity pools overlooking the white sand of the beach and the turquoise blue of the South Pacific Ocean. A unique place to forget about problems!
