With backdrops to die for, indulge your retinas with rooms that make you go WOW. Ultimate Beachfront Bungalow PACIFIC RESORT, AITUTAKI, COOK ISLANDS Imagine a rich dark-stained wooden deck, lush green palm trees, fine white sand, and finally, a luminescent aqua blue lagoon. It’s every dreamer's South Pacific paradise, and nowhere is it more perfect than at Aitutaki, arguably one of the most beautiful tropical island destinations in the world. Your aptly named Ultimate Beachfront Bungalow at the Pacific Resort Aitutaki is complemented with five star service, divine spa therapies, fine dining and one of the most stunning infinity pools in the South Pacific. Junior Suite Lakeview FAIRMONT CHATEAU LAKE LOUISE, CANADA In this day and age it simply wouldn’t be possible to build a big honking hotel right in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage area, but this hotel can trace its history back to 1890. History aside, what we’re here for is the view, perhaps Canada’s most iconic. The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise has views over the impossibly blue glacier-fed lake, surrounded by tall green pines and enveloped in the striking Canadian Rockies. As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, above you, and clinging to the side of the mountains, is precarious Victoria Glacier. Stateroom Cabin RV MEKONG PANDAW CRUISE SHIP, VIETNAM Now here’s a clever one. How about a room whose view changes every time you look at it? The meandering Mekong River is the throbbing lifeline of Southeast Asia and nowhere more so is that true than at the mighty Mekong River Delta in southern Vietnam. From the comfort of your own balcony, or perhaps the sundeck, watch the Vietnamese travelling to and from home, fishing for dinner, doing the daily washing, bartering their goods, and even taking their cattle for a swim and a much needed relief from the heat.
