Here’s a quick snapshot but you can read the full list here on Trivago’s Room 5 blog
Burj Al Arab Jumeirah
Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The world’s first 7-star hotel, the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is the epitome of luxury, located on its very own exclusive island just offshore from the popular Jumeirah Beach. The suite-only accommodation offers a private reception with a host of private butlers for each floor. Our favourite is the Royal Two-Bedroom suite where palatial does not do justice to describe the opulent interiors and decadent amenities that include your own private cinema.
Location: Abu Dhabi
Luxurious in every aspect, the Emirates Palace certainly belongs on every bucket list. Featuring pristine beaches, sculpted pools and a private marina overlooking a natural bay, the hotel has both mother nature and great architecture working for it. And with over 10 restaurants and bars, you certainly won’t go hungry. Why not try their signature 24 karat gold camel burger at Le Café or indulge in a delicious Afternoon Tea at the Caviar Bar?
Rooms Hotel Kazbegi
Location: Stepantsminda, Georgia
An old Soviet resort with Brutalist architecture, Rooms Hotel Kazbegi is nestled deep in the Caucasus Mountains boasting incredible views, abundant nature and cosy interiors. Relax on the sun terrace, take a dip in the indoor pool or browse the library, your stay is guaranteed to be both serene and chic.
Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur
Location: Udaipur, India
On the banks of Lake Pichola, The Taj Lake Palace is the old residence of the Maharana of Mewar. Offering a luxurious setting, sparkling views over the lake, fine-dining, and one-off experiences why not take a sunset boat ride on the lake or enjoy dinner under the Lakeside Dome.
Location: Gunma, Japan
A traditional Japanese Ryokan squeezed between snowy mountains and surrounded by several natural hot springs, Naraya Kusatsu is an authentic Japanese experience. Friendly staff and incredible views are what makes this Ryokan stand out from the rest on our bucket list, and when you’ve finished in the hot spas don’t forget to try some of the magnificent cuisine.
Four Seasons Buenos Aires
An opulent hotel in the heart of the city, the Four Seasons Buenos Aires is an oasis of calm, decorated to magnificence. Enjoy the heated outdoor pool area year-round or head to the well-appointed spa for some dedicated relaxation. The hotel hosts 97 rooms and 49 luxurious suites; think bright colours, mahogany furniture, and crisp white linen.
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise
Location: British Columbia, Canada
Surrounded by the soaring Rocky Mountains, the majestic Victoria Glacier and on the shores of the glittering Lake Louise, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hotel is a gem within British Columbia’s Banff National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the surrounding nature is spectacular and the hotel is recognized globally for progressive environmental stewardship and responsible tourism, to make sure it stays that way.
Location: Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa
Throw open the windows of your room onto African plains where you can spot giraffes, elephants and even lions. The luxury suites of Madikwe Hills are floor to ceiling comfort. Out on your private terrace, you will find your own plunge pool overlooking the surrounding nature, whilst inside you can enjoy cosy sitting rooms, and a bedroom with more full length windows so you don’t miss a second of wildlife watching.
