13 insanely luxe hotels you NEED to stay in
Been bitten by the wanderlust bug and need some travel inspo? Here’s lastminute.com.au’s pick of the best luxury suites from around the world.
Any hotel room that can offer a private spa and marble-clad Jacuzzi has our attention. Take in the spectacular view of the Swiss Alps in ultimate luxury at this award-winning resort.
The Maldives is a bucket-list destination for basically everyone – the turquoise water needs to be seen to be believed. Set against the canvas of the Indian Ocean, having a suite ‘at sea’ has never been more glamorous.
Former residence of the Vatican ambassadors, this hotel built in 1475 offers extravagance with a side of royalty. Think of the stories the walls could tell! Each room elegantly references its history with no detail or cost spared. Plus, step out the front door and you’re on the Grand Canal!
You won’t need to leave your hotel room for the most impressive Insty snap of the Opera House ever.
Enjoy a night suspended over water at Pumphouse Point where your digs are located 250 metres from shore on the lake. Surrounded by mountains and water, you’ll be feeling one with nature before you know it. Switching off and relaxing is mandatory.
Nestled in a palm tree oasis in the middle of the Dubai Desert, these luxury rooms celebrate the heritage of the Bedouins through unique design and styling. Each suite also has its own private plunge pool looking out to the desert – you’d never want to leave!
The desert meets the sea in this all inclusive adults-only accommodation with ridiculous beach views. In-room perks include a furnished balcony, hot tub, and the beautiful Mar de Cortes as your outlook.
Check into your room and wander through your own dressing room, lounge area and separate bedroom – yep, there’s every chance you’ll wanna move in for real! Make sure you use their mobile app LUCY with everything too, even down to controlling the room’s temp.
See Tokyo in a new light with floor-to-ceiling glass windows from your room at the 37-floor Mandarin Oriental. If you do plan to venture out of the room (not likely, tbh), the hotel’s one-Michelin starred Tapas Molecular Bar is a must . There are only eight seats in the whole place so make sure you book ahead!
This series of five townhouses in Pimlico is as classy as they come. We’re talking marble, chandeliers, in-room iPads and herringbone patterned floors. A true British experience.
Ahhh, Santorini. The view speaks for itself! If you go for the top-of-the-range room of this luxe hotel, you’ll score your own private pool, perfect for those sunset Insty snaps.
Nature-lovers, take note! Hidden away in a private canyon in Napa Valley, these cedar-shingle lodges have panoramic windows and outdoor rain showers. You’ll hardly want to leave the cabin but if you do, make sure you use the on-site Mercedes-Benz available at no extra cost.
Planted amongst the lush jungle is the Rosewood Mayakoba. Each room comes with its own rooftop sundeck, outdoor shower and plunge pool. No tequila or sombreros required!
