Description

Whether you want to take a relaxing vacation in Asia, a backpacking journey in South America, a road trip in the USA, a cultural tour in Europe, or a safari in Africa, we've got the most inspiring and eclectic collection of hotels, guesthouses, boats, lodges, spas, and houseboats that you could ask for. Just flip through the pages of this new compilation of dreamy spots to plan your next holiday, wherever it may be. Highlights include: in Kerala, India, futuristic-looking, Star Wars-style houseboats made of bamboo poles, palm leaves, and coconut fibers; the best place for a delectable cup of joe: a luxury lodge and spa on a java plantation in (you guessed it) Java; an Ayurvedic spa in the Himalayas where nothing matters but peace and relaxation; a lush Kenyan open-walled hut fashioned from tree trunks and shielded from the sun by a sumptuous thatched roof; Gio Ponti's sleek blue and white hotel perched on the cliffs in Sorrento, Italy; an elegant auberge in Napa Valley, California where you can stay during your wine tasting tour; a historic ranch nestled in a Death Valley oasis; an adobe hotel in the Chilean desert; in Bolivia's Uyuni salt desert, a hotel built entirely of salt; and, an "ecolodge" on a natural reserve in the Amazon rain forest.
