The United States is home to some of the most spectacularly beautiful destinations in the world, including natural wonders, historical landmarks, and brilliantly designed structures. There is no lack of incredible hotels throughout the country and if you are looking for a vacation that is both relaxing and surrounded by beauty, you have come to the right place. In this post, we’ll take a look at a few of the most beautiful hotels in the United States.
Amangiri Resort, Canyon Point, Utah
Amangiri Resort in Canyon Point, Utah, is surrounded by 600 acres of majestic mountain ranges, dunes, and plateaus, making for a delightfully remote and serene desert getaway. The resort is less than 30 minutes away from the town of Page, Arizona, and the neighboring Lake Powell and national parks are easily accessible by car. The resort sits right next door to the biggest Native American reservation in the country and invites guests to explore thousands of years of Navajo and natural history.
Guests can relax in the cold plunge pool, the steam room, and a sauna, all located on the pavilion. A dip in the pool is made even more enjoyable after a rigorous gym session with an on-site wellness coach or a rejuvenating yoga class. The resort has dining options available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and you definitely want to make a point of trying the various dishes on the dinner menu. After a long day of swimming or hiking, order the fire roasted tortilla soup along with the Chile-spiced ahi tuna tempura and finish it off with a sweet Navajo fry bread for dessert.
The Peninsula, New York City, New York
This list simply wouldn’t be complete without mentioning a glamorous hotel from New York City. And with so many stately, historical hotels to choose from, it wasn’t an easy pick. But there is something about the old-school New York elegance of The Peninsula that rivals any other gorgeous hotel in the Big Apple.
Situated on the equally glamorous 5th Avenue in Manhattan, The Peninsula boasts a sprawling selection of breathtaking suites, all unique in their own right. The Peninsula Suite is a whopping 3,300 square feet and comes with a baby grand piano, unparalleled views of Manhattan, a dining room that seats eight, a jacuzzi hot tub, and a master bedroom. The suites at the peninsula go for several thousand dollars a night, so if you’re looking for something more budget-friendly, take a look at the rooms (although even these tend to go for several hundred a night).
A weekend stay at The Peninsula is undoubtedly a splurge, but definitely worth it for anyone wishing to capture the essence of New York. The good news is that it isn’t necessary to be an overnight guest in order to enjoy the ambiance and (certain) amenities of the Peninsula. You can sip a cocktail at Salon de Ning, the hotel’s rooftop bar and terrace or enjoy a romantic dinner at Clement Restaurant.
Acqualina Resort and Spa, Sunny Isles Beach, Florida
Sitting on 4.5 acres of pristine beachfront, Acqualina Resort and Spa offers guests immaculate views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as killer sunsets in the evening. The resort is lined with palm trees and surrounded by lush green grass with plenty of areas to set up camp for a well-deserved catnap or a cold drink at sunset.
In addition to prime real estate on Sunny Isles Beach, the resort has three oceanfront pools to choose from. The interiors of the resort are just as stunning as the surrounding areas and offer such a beautiful backdrop that many weddings take place on the grounds. The resort also has many child-friendly activities, making it a great destination for families. Activities available to people of all ages include foosball, chess, a soccer field, and a basketball net. Children aged 5–12 can enjoy marine biology activities for free!
Fairmont Grand Del Mar, San Diego, California
The 5-star Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego, California is reminiscent of a Spanish villa on the Mediterranean. The resort includes a spa center, an indoor hot tub, a sprawling outdoor pool, an equestrian center for horseback riding, a golf course, a garden, and an outdoor fireplace.
Just outside of the resort, you’ll find miles of outdoor areas to hike as well as several miles of beachfront on the Pacific Ocean. At the spa center, you can unwind with a therapeutic massage, take a yoga class, and get a cleansing facial with fully organic skin care products.
