A good hotel can make or break a trip. The worst hotel in the best place is still going to make retiring after a long day an unfortunate experience. The best hotel in the worst place, on the other hand, can be something of an oasis. Take the best hotels and put them in the best places, and you’ve got a private slice of the vacation you’ve always dreamed of. I’ve been to two of these epic hotels, three are still elusive but not definately out of my bucket list, can you guess which one?..
Ladera Resort, St. Lucia,
Possibly the singular spot for your perfect Caribbean excursion, the
Ladera Resort represents the intersection between design, luxury, and the ideal location. Amenities include a full spa, a host of excursion experiences, and the ability to swing straight from a bench into the pool. Equally sick.
Hotel Kakslauttanen, Finland
If you’ve never
heard of this place, you’ve probably spent an enviably small amount of time on the internet. With its infamous glass igloos and log cabins, the Hotel Kakslauttanen offers an exclusive inside-while-outside winter experience. You know, so you can be immersed in the beauty of frozen forests and incredible winter auroras while simultaneously safe and comfortable inside your own private bubble of warmth.
Cocoa Island Resort, Maldives
Just a 40-minute speedboat ride from the archipelago’s main airport,
Cocoa Island floats as a cluster of 33 over-water suites (straight out from those sweeping white sand beaches you’ve seen in every tropical island fantasy you’ve ever had). With two private diving reefs to explore, who’s got time for spa treatments?
Rockwater Tenthouse Suites, Canada

Apollo Bay, along the Great Ocean Road, Victoria it is definitely the place to hit the pause button. adjacent to pristine rainforest in Victoria’s beautiful Otway Ranges.
