There are lots of factors that go into choosing your next vacation destination. Maybe you’d enjoy the whimsy of staying at the Cartoon Network hotel or want to stay at an all-inclusive resort that actually has impressive food — or perhaps you’re intrigued by the idea of staying at a treehouse in the arctic or luxury lodging near a national park.
But one undeniably ideal perk regardless of where you choose is the opportunity to catch beautiful views from your hotel. HawaiianIslands.com, an authoritative voice on all things Hawaii, conducted a study of reviews to find you the best hotels with beautiful views around the world.
If you’re looking for the best views in Canada, TripAdvisor reviews of the Fairmont Chateau in Lake Louise mention the view 1,772 times. One of the best places to glimpse the clear blue lake surrounded by mountains is the breakfast restaurant, along with several (not all) of the guest rooms. The second top hotel in the world with the most reviews about beautiful views is in Sin City. The Wynn Las Vegas has excellent views of the strip, and you’ll catch every glimmer as it lights up at night. But the most beautiful hotel views in the world are found at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf and Spa Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. There’s nothing like seeing and hearing crashing waves to rock someone to sleep at night.

To find the hotels with the best views, the site used TripAdvisor to search for hotels with the keyword “beautiful view” around the world. The Hawaiian Islands then awarded the listings with the most keyword mentions as the highest rated hotel. When more than one hotel had the same number of mentions, whichever hotel had the highest overall rating on TripAdvisor got preference. Hotels with fewer than 10 mentions of a beautiful view or less than 100 reviews were excluded from the study.
