From rolling mountainsides to sprawling cityscapes and ancient monuments, the views from these top suites will change your perspective.

1. Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, Monaco


The world’s second-smallest country looks monumental from the Carre D’Or Suite at the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, where a 1,100-square-foot terrace overlooks the gilded Casino de Monte-Carlo. Wealth is well-displayed inside the suite, too, and even its bathroom glitters with gold and marble.

2. Hotel Plaza Athénée, Paris


Founded in 1913, Hotel Plaza Athénée is not only a place to stay but also one to be seen. Inside the hotel's Eiffel Tower Suites, windows framed with signature red geraniums embrace grand views of Avenue Montaigne and the Eiffel Tower. (Carrie Bradshaw has even made an appearance on the hotel’s famed balcony.)

3. Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai


As if sleeping in a fishbowl, the Underwater Suites at Dubai’s Atlantis, the Palm, peer into a man-made ecosystem through floor-to-ceiling windows. The lagoon teems with 65,000 marine inhabitants, from stingrays to schools of fish. The one thing the resort can’t guarantee is privacy—sharks have eyes too, after all.

4. The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra, India


The Taj Mahal is a mere 600 meters from the Oberoi Amarvilas, whose massive Kohinoor Suite gazes directly at the iconic monument. From 24-hour butler service to a walk-in rain shower that opens onto a private sun terrace, there’s one feature that guests should skip: Blackout curtains.

5. Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Rome


Standing on the broad terrace of Rome Cavalieri's Planetarium Suite is like looking down over Vatican City from the heavens. The hotel's hilltop location on Monte Mario promises sweeping views of the bustling city and its most famous landmark, St. Peter’s Basilica.

6. Hotel Adlon Kempinski, Berlin


Cornering the famed Pariser Platz in Berlin, Hotel Adlon Kempinski’s Presidential Suite Brandenburg Gate lives up to its name thanks to its direct view of the neoclassical monument. Sadly, no car will squeeze through the pedestrianized gate, but a chauffeur can whisk guests along the adjacent Ebertstraße for a drive-by view with the suite’s exclusive 24-hour limousine service.

7. The Silo, Cape Town


Newly opened within the top six floors of a historic grain silo, Cape Town’s aptly named hotel, the Silo, rises above the rest. From its Penthouse, the building’s iconic “pillowed glass” windows capture the city’s brightest sites, from Table Mountain to Lion’s Head, and Signal Hill.

8. Hotel Unique, São Paulo


Among the most storied skylines in the world, São Paulo features seemingly infinite rooftops best seen from, well, a fellow rooftop. The Ruy Ohtake-designed Hotel Unique is a sight itself, shaped like the hull of a ship. The eccentric property's Penthouse crops the sprawling skyline through porthole windows, while views are wide open atop its massive private deck.

9. Four Seasons Hotel, Kyoto


Most rooms at the year-old Four Seasons Kyoto require an impossible choice: A view overlooking an 800-year-old pond garden through floor-to-ceiling windows, or tree-lined vistas of Kyoto’s 12th-century Myoho-in Temple. Fortunately, a handful of them—including the Executive Suite—offer both.

10. Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort, Oman


If you fall for this view, don’t fall forward—the crown jewel of the highest five-star resort in the Middle East, the Royal Mountain Villa, perches 2,000 meters above sea level. Just beyond the villa’s private pool, a rocky precipice frames sweeping views of a canyon whose slopes bloom with Damask roses throughout April and May.

11. Angama Mara, Kenya


In Kenya’s Maasai Mara, the contemporary Tented Suites at Angama Mara sit high on the coveted Oloololo Escarpment. Each suite’s floor-to-ceiling windows are 30 feet wide and overlook the live-action backdrop of the Great Rift Valley. From private decks, guests watch millions of zebras and wildebeest rush through the valley during the annual Great Migration.

12. The Ritz-Carlton Central Park, New York City


No matter the season, Central Park is New York’s perennial marvel. The corner Premiere Suites at the Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park share a view that’s worthy of the city’s highest society—telescopes are positioned in each suite for closer inspection.

13. Corinthia Hotel, London


For locals, the London Eye might be a touristy headache, but it’s no eyesore. A stone’s throw from the River Thames, the opulent Corinthia Hotel’s Penthouse is equally grand with a terrace that overlooks the water, passing boats, and that brilliant ferris wheel.
