5 Views to Add to Your Bucket List

August 27, 2015

Pool time, bath time, dinnertime. Waking up from a night’s sleep or an alfresco nap. Everywhere you go, you’re in a three-dimensional screensaver. These five hotels and resorts puts a premium on panorama with the best views ever.

1. Infinity Pool The cascading pool at Gansevoort Dominican Republic Playa Imbert and the Atlantic Ocean are like neighboring hues on a Benjamin Moore paint swatch. With only 48 suites and a private beach, the chance of anyone interrupting your view is slim. Courtesy Gansevoort Dominican Republic Playa Imbert
2. Tub Opt for the superior double room at Hacienda Na Xamena in Ibiza. The main attraction is a Jacuzzi 60 stories above the Med that settles at the foot of the sunburnt rock faces. Courtesy Hacienda Na Xamena
3. Bed Good morning, Piti and Gros Piton, a vista made possible by the exposed fourth wall, a trademark of Jade Mountain in Saint Lucia. Better snap your photos in the room, as guests are asked (kindly) not to use their phones in the resort’s public areas. Courtesy Jade Mountain
4. Cabana Behind you, dense rainforest thicket. In front of you, the Gulf of Thailand. Song Saa, a private island resort in Cambodia, mixes hospitality with sustainability. (Its mantra: “Luxury that treads lightly.”) So yes, the day-bed is made from locally sourced materials. Courtesy Song Saa
5. Restaurant At Ithaa Undersea Restaurant at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, the six-course prix fixe dinner takes place 16 feet below sea level next to the coral gardens. That was a whitetip shark that just creeped by. Now back to the lobster carpaccio. Courtesy Conrad Maldives
