When you go on vacation, you generally want to spend as little time at the hotel as possible. Even if you are spending no more than your morning and evening at your hotel, you hope that to get a nice view of the surrounding area.
If you are making a stop at any of these locations, the views from your lodging will not only blow your mind but tempt you to never leave the premises. Take a look at these mountaintop hotels from heaven.
Belmond Cantuary Lodge – Machu Picchu, Peru
Visiting the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu is a must-see for any traveler. While most people stay in the valley at Aguas Calientes and make the day trip to the Incan citadel, one hotel sits adjacent yet removed from the ruins.
Staying at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge means taking in daily panoramic views of Machu Picchu and the Andes mountains.
Hotel Everest View – Namche, Nepal
It is not every day that you can claim to stay at the world’s highest hotel. Hotel Everest View was built over 45 years ago at an incredible altitude of 13,000 feet.
All 12 rooms at the hotel offer expansive views of the world’s highest peak. You can take a helicopter up, or trek through the forest.
Rifflehaus 1853 – Zermatt, Switzerland
Taking a trip to the Matterhorn can be a once in a lifetime experience. Why not pair it with a 154-year-old hotel that looks out on to the entire mountain range?
You can ski in and out of the hotel if that’s your fancy. If not, you can sit back in the hotel’s hot tub which looks onto the iconically jagged peak.
The Lodge at Breckenridge – Breckenridge, Colorado, USA
The Rocky Mountains offer plenty of mountaintop retreats in which to gaze on their natural beauty, but the Lodge at Breckenridge takes the cake. The Breckenridge Ski Resort is nearby, but the hotel’s positioning gives it an amazing view of the Boreas Pass. At 10,200 feet up, you will not be disappointed.
