Luxury Hotels with the Best Scenic Views


When seeking out the perfect place to hang your hat in hotels both here and abroad, we know that location can be the difference between total relaxation and total disaster. Here’s our lineup of the best luxury hotels with the most scenic views, bringing you the ultimate amenity: connecting with nature.

First up is the Villa Tre Ville in Positano, Italy, which boasts gorgeous interior design features and architectural elements…but that’s not even the best part. What really defines this hotel is the beautiful outdoor spaces and terraces overlooking the clear Positano waters of the Amalfi Coast. Vast lawns, gardens, ancient tropical plants and wisteria make Villa Tre Ville seem one with nature, and you’ll have no choice but to sit back and enjoy the view.

A hop, skip and a jump over in Greece is the Villa Galaxy in Mykonos. This island hotel has endless views of the turquoise Aegean Sea, making it the ideal place for relaxation. Take a walk through the old marble, wood, and stonework of the hotel to get an idea of the area’s iconic style before enjoying the hotel’s legendary butler service poolside.

For golf gurus and equestrians, the Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort in Solvang, California, is the perfect location for those with a love of the outdoors. Ride through canyons, shaded hillsides, grazing cattle and babbling brooks in the expansive Santa Ynez Valley, cast a line in the beautiful Alisal Lake, or hop over to the spa for a signature spa treatment (our favorite is the Alisal Spa Massage).

Finally, the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii boasts beautiful grounds and views of the Pacific Ocean. Walk through the extended oceanfront garden to lounge on an outdoor daybed or visit the incredible Akaka Falls and Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park to soak in the beauty of other natural sites.
