8 Rooms With a Gorgeous View

Article by Katarina Kovacevic 06.06.2017

Travel can bring a new perspective, but you don’t always need to be in the middle of the action to find inspiration. These heavenly beds offer sweeping panoramic vistas of the world’s great destinations.

The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco

Large windows give way to sweeping views of the City by the Bay: Transamerica Pyramid, Alcatraz Island and even Coit Tower, which you can spy from the bed of the San Francisco Suite. A stay here comes with exclusive experiences like a weekend Vintner Wine Series. If you decide to wander from the cozy confines, the city’s iconic cable car stops just outside the hotel’s doors, offering stops at the Ferry Building and Embarcadero and views of the downtown skyline and San Francisco Bay.

Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

This Puerto Rican hideaway embraces the beauty of indoor-outdoor seaside living. There’s an alfresco shower, of course, along with floor-to-ceiling windows and a spacious ocean-view balcony complete with plunge pool. It all frames the tropical sanctuary that is Dorado Beach: a canvas of golden sand, emerald rainforest and the glistening waters of the Caribbean.

The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park

Guests do not need much help spotting Lady Liberty from here, but there is an in-room telescope if you’d prefer a more close-up look of the Green Goddess. The bed boasts unobstructed views of storied New York Harbor, and the expansive suite comes with plenty of space to work and play, thanks to a separate dining area, kitchenette and full living room.

Premiere Liberty View Suite

The Ritz-Carlton, Bali

Each of the three beds in this oceanfront villa is decked in traditional Balinese style and comes with an Indian Ocean backdrop. In this tranquil enclave, your most difficult decision will be whether to have a romantic breakfast in bed or a floating breakfast in the private pool. Massive windows open up to a tropical garden, grand dining space and secluded massage area.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong

Splayed across panoramic windows like a living portrait, Hong Kong’s twinkling skyline is the first and last thing you’ll see each day. Take in the sights of the island’s iconic Victoria Harbour — towering skyscrapers, glowing lights, floating red-sailed boats — and wash away jet lag with a sunset dip in the hotel’s Jacuzzi or indoor infinity-edge pool.

The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow

As both the host location of the Kremlin and numerous public events, Moscow’s main plaza is almost always buzzing with excitement. Admire the Red Square happenings and the dramatic cityscape from this luxurious 10th-story perch. Your vantage point from bed is stunning, but even better from the oversized marble tub.

Hotel Arts Barcelona

Some 23 stories up, this chic space is steeped in natural light and looks out onto generous sea and city vistas. The full marble bathroom features a large soaking tub and separate hydro-shower cabin. From the comfort of your bed, gaze out into Barcelona’s cityscape and catch glimpses of the famous Port Olimpic marina — with the glittering shores of the Mediterranean in the distance.

Barcelona Panoramic Room

The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto

This tatami-style room comes with all of the customary Japanese indulgences, including a traditional platform bed. The view is a layered one: first, your very own Japanese garden, then the Kamogawa River in the slight distance and, finally, Kyoto’s Higashiyama mountains. A peek down reveals the river’s bustling restaurant-lined promenade.
