When you plan a vacation in one of the world's most exotic places staying in one of the world's best hotels, then it is difficult to go wrong. There are literally thousands of hotels all over the world, but there is a small number of truly exquisite hotels located in exotic areas. If you are looking for the vacation idea of a lifetime, then a good place to start is to look for the best hotels in the world.
Copacabana Palace Hotel - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
It is difficult to find a more exotic location than Rio de Janeiro, and it is very difficult to find a hotel more in demand than the Copacabana Palace Hotel. This is the very same place where iconic figure such as Frank Sinatra went to get away from the world and just relax. The Copacabana overlooks the beaches of Rio and offers world class service. This is not just one of the best hotels in the world, this is one of the most famous hotels as well. Prices range from approximately $540 per night U.S. funds for the Superior Room, up to around $1,200 per night U.S. funds for the Deluxe Suite with sea view.
Palacio Nazarenas - Cusco, Peru
The Palacio Nazarenas has a lot going for it when it comes to a luxurious hotel. First of all, it is nestled in the mountain area of Peru and is surrounded by some of most beautiful natural scenery in the world. Also, it has amenities such as a 24-hour butler service, an espresso bar and a boutique in your suite. Rooms start at $550.00 per night U.S. funds for the basic suite, but it is well worth it to stay in a palace that was converted to a hotel.
The Phoenix Resort - San Pedro, Belize
Belize is a prime vacation spot for people from all over the world, so a resort would really have to stand out to be considered the best in Belize. From its view of the ocean to its private tours of the Maya ruins, the Phoenix Resort in San Pedro has luxury down to a science. Anyone who gets a chance to get second floor room with a seaside balcony will instantly understand what real luxury is all about. For a world class hotel, the Phoenix Resort has some reasonable pricing. A regular beachfront suite starts at approximately $400 per night (off peak) in U.S. dollars and a full-size beachfront luxury suite goes for around $600 (off peak) in U.S. dollars.
La Sultana Oualidia - Oualidia, Morocco
If you are going to stay in a premium hotel that sits on the shores of an ocean lagoon, then you should head to Marrakech, Morocco for some time at the La Sultana Oualidia. This is a very exclusive hotel that only has 12 rooms, but the personal service and the relaxing atmosphere are well worth it. The building itself is made from local rocks and stones, which gives the hotel a very thick ambiance. The personal service includes spa treatments and massages. Room rates start at approximately $400 per night in U.S. funds.
Wildflower Hall - Shimla, the Himalayas
When it is time to really get away from it all, then it is time to head to Wildflower Hall in the Himalaya Mountains. Wildflower Hall is part of the Oberoi group of hotels, which are known the world over for their beauty and service. The Deluxe Room rents for around $400 per night in U.S. funds, while the Deluxe Suite will cost around $710 per night in U.S. funds. The hotel offers private spas and rooms that have a significant amount of handmade furniture and accessories. The one thing that Wildflower Hall has that no other hotel has is the Himalayas. If you are looking for a view to wake up to in the morning, then go with Wildflower Hall.
