Oberoi Amarvilas (Agra, India)

Room: Premier Suite with Balcony
View: Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is one of those worldly landmarks so immediately associated with its location, and despite how many films or photos you've seen incorporate the historical structure, nothing compares with beholding it in person. This suite at one of India's best hotels offers the best viewing spot to do so. It's the closest in proximity to the celebrated attraction, filled with local design crafts to keep you comfortable (like intricate silk cushions and hand-knotted rugs) and offers straight-shot uninterrupted views from your bed or balcony to enjoy the architectural marvel.

Explora Patagonia Hotel Salto Chico (Torres National Park, Chile)

Room: Exploradores Suite
View: Untouched Patagonia landscape

Patagonia is sometimes referred to as the end of the world, and the Explora Patagonia hotel is situated right in the thick of things, as the only hotel inside Chile's Torres del Paine national park, the southernmost tip of South America. Glaciers, lakes, rivers and forests are framed by mountains and enormous granite pillars, while exotic species of bird, puma and deer roam the land.

TV-free rooms keep the focus on the natural landscape outside, and the wide windows bring an almost IMAX-like feeling into your bedroom. The hotel happens to host over 50 adventurous outdoor expeditions, but we won't fault you for taking a day (or few) off to soak in this scene from the comforts of your bedroom.
