If you love creatures great and small, one of the best ways to fully immerse yourself in the animal kingdom is in a hotel that puts your right new the wildlife. For example, all of the rooms at The Cape, a Thompson Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, include a pair of binoculars so guests can whale watch from the comfort of their king-size beds. Meanwhile, guests staying in the panoramic suites (picture 180-degrees of floor-to-ceiling glass walls) are treated to “enhanced telescopes.”
That’s not to say that high-powered optics are required, however. A property might have a resident bison herd as its welcome committee, a flock of friendly flamingos photobombing on the reg, or even an adolescent elephant thinking it’s cool to drink from the pool. Why not? After all, it’s an animal’s world. We’re just living in it. From Alaska to Africa, these 13 hotels and resorts allow you to binge-watch wildlife to your heart’s content.
