Enjoy Your Stay: The World’s Loveliest Hotels And Resorts

Most of the time, we would find ourselves wanting to take a break from the daily grind of work. As a result, we would often look at our calendar and work schedule to find appropriate dates for our brief getaway, whether to the beach, to the mountains, or anywhere that provides a sense of relaxation and comfort.

Throughout humanity’s existence, way before the first use of electricity was discovered, many civilizations have already made infrastructures where passing travelers were provided with lodging and services throughout their stay. Eventually, these lodgings started expanding on accommodations and services, making way for many of today’s luxurious hotels and resorts, where guests are provided with an experience that almost makes them wish that they can stay there forever. Many of these hotels have sheltered a great many generations while further improving their accommodations and services through each passing year to ensure that their guests still receive the best-quality experience throughout their stay.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at a few of the world’s loveliest hotels and resorts.

Twin Farms

Most hotels are often located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of cities. But for Twin Farms, the hotel is surrounded by the beautiful scenery of nature, providing visitors with a lovely atmosphere that varies from season to season.

Twin Farm’s history dates back to when the couple, Nobel prize-winning author Sinclair Lewis and journalist Dorothy Thompson, got married and called the 300-acre property their home. Throughout their stay, the couple would often host parties and invited many political and literary figures, who would sometimes also stay for a few days to spend some time away from the city. Eventually, after the couple sold the property, the new owners of Twin Farms made gradual investments in turning the property into a relaxing hotel, where visitors can also take in the beautiful scenery surrounding it.

The Ranch at Rock Creek

For a hotel to provide the best experience for its visitors, it must make itself feel like a second home for those who stay in it. And for The Ranch at Rock Creek, it undoubtedly achieved this feature.

Perhaps one of the most expensive hotels in the US, The Ranch at Rock Creek, was first the ideal home for many of its owners before becoming the dream staycation that it is today. Its current owner, Jim Manley, found the property back in 2007, after spending 20 years looking for the ideal ranch. And as his days living in the ranch with his family and friends lasted longer and longer, Manley eventually decided to share this property with others, spending some investment money on improving the home’s already-top-quality accommodations and atmosphere.

 Cavallo Point Lodge

Where many hotels go for the skyscraper look, the Cavallo Point Lodge focuses on its vast area for its many lodgings and accommodations. And with its top-quality services and accommodations, it comes with no surprise that the place eventually earned the #1 Best Hotel title in the San Francisco Bay Area by Travel+Leisure.

Besides its many lodgings, where even the flooring design is nothing short of lovely, the Cavallo Point Lodge provides many accommodations for its visitors, like its Cooking School and its Healing Arts Center & Spa. Furthermore, visitors can also do recreational activities like biking, sailing, and hiking around the San Francisco Bay area, which is only a few minutes away from the lodge. And thanks to the accommodations it has for its visitors, the Cavallo Point Lodge manages to find the perfect balance between relaxation and recreation.

Post Ranch Inn

For many of us, the objects that we cherish often have a back story behind them. For Bill Post, the Post Ranch Inn has a special place in his heart due to the history surrounding its property and his family, who once stayed there. And even after his unfortunate passing in 2009, Bill’s love for the property remains strong and unchanging.

For the property’s lovely architecture, all credit is given to Mickey Muennig. After falling in love with Big Sur’s beautiful surroundings, Muennig willingly volunteered to be the leading architect for the area’s many properties, including Post Ranch Inn. Besides the ranch’s many relaxing accommodations, Post Ranch Inn also provides its visitors with the best view of the Pacific Ocean – bet the sound of its waves crashing can make a soothing lullaby at night.

The Landing Resort & Spa

In life, we experience many encounters where people would go out of their ways to help us get back on our feet and vice-versa. And as for the luxurious Landing Resort & Spa, its creators spent a humongous amount of investment money to ensure their visitors have the best five-star hotel experience they will ever get.

Every area within the Landing Resort & Spa radiates an atmosphere of top-class comfort and recreation for its visitors. Among its many accommodations include its lovely spa, a heated outdoor pool, and a salon, to name a few. However, the best offer a visitor can get from their luxurious stay can be found both at the rooftop deck and lake view patio. This is where one can have the best view of South Lake Tahoe, accompanied by the stars at night.

Little Palm Island, Florida

Many people love to go to the beach while others prefer to stay away from overly crowded places. However, if you just so happen to be a big beach-lover but also wish to avoid crowded places, then the Little Palm Island may be a place that almost seems like it came straight out of your dreams.

Little Palm Island is a beach resort that also values a high degree of privacy, so much so that the only way to go there is through a private sea-plane or boat. Upon arriving, visitors can expect the best experience with help from the resort’s many accommodations, including its waterside dining area. One can have a full view of the Atlantic Ocean from dusk until dawn. All in all, Little Palm Island may just be the best tropical escape one can ever have.

Triple Creek Ranch

Besides the beach, some people would also love to spend some time in a cabin, surrounded by the forest’s lush greens, with mountains as the backdrop. And for that, the Triple Creek Ranch is one of the best choices to make for this type of vacation getaway.

Before it became the go-to ranch for many people today, Triple Creek Ranch was a home that once provided shelter to several owners over the years. Eventually, a couple bought the property in 1993, who loved the resort so much that they even made investments in improving its already luxurious accommodations. Now Triple Creek Ranch features many new and improved cabins, a tennis court, several fishing ponds, and a heated outdoor pool, to name a few.

The Resort at Paws Up

Camping is another outdoor hobby that many love to do, especially because of the many lovely views one can get throughout the journey. Well, for the Resort at Paws Up, the place provides the most luxurious camping experience one can ever have.

This 37,000-acre property provides its guests with two ways to enjoy their stay: in a private home or a luxurious safari-style tent. Furthermore, guests will also receive one of the best adventures they can get at the Resort at Paws Up, including the chance to explore the very lands that the adventurers, Lewis & Clark, once ventured across among the other adventures the resort has in store. Through the Resort At Paws Up, one can bring out their inner explorer – an experience surely worth spending on a few credit card points.

Amangiri, Utah

A place where luxury and comfort blend flawlessly with the deep history within its surroundings, Amangiri is, without a doubt, a hotel where guests will experience a new and deeper appreciation for the Navajo culture.

Besides the resort’s many luxurious offers for their visitors, no stay in Amangiri will ever be complete without going on an adventure around its surroundings— whether by foot, by horseback, by boat, or on a hot-air balloon. Throughout these adventures, guests will be accompanied by a Navajo guide. They will also share stories behind their strong culture’s history, dating back to when people still rode on horses instead of gas-powered automobiles. And by the end of their stay, guests will surely be leaving Amangiri with more than what they initially packed thanks to their newfound knowledge and understanding of the culture.  

Montage, Palmetto Bluff

More often than not, a hotel or resort is just as beautiful as the environment surrounding them. And if you’re looking for a calm and serene spot for your next getaway, then maybe the Montage resort at Palmetto Bluff and its surrounding rivers is a good choice for you to add to your list.

With the resort located in a 20,000-acre community with a history that dates back to over 12,000 years ago, it comes with no surprise that Montage’s architectural design carries a modestly historical look that reflects the many investments people made for Palmetto Bluff over the years. And for Montage’s guest, their Palmetto Bluff experience will surely be worth remembering thanks to their recreational activities, including fresh and saltwater fishing, kayaking, and paddleboarding.
