Condé Nast Traveler’s celebrated “Room with a View” page, featuring frame-worthy vistas from all over the world, has been tempting intrepid globetrotters for years.
This compendium gathers its most breathtaking sights of all time, from Balinese beaches to European cities to African savannahs teeming with wildlife. Colorful and inspiring, Condé Nast Traveler Room with a View is an authoritative selection of 140 memorable hotels to discover.
ASSOULINE’S newest tome, Condé Nast Traveler Room with a View offers a global exploration of the world’s most stunning hotels and resorts and the most breathtaking views taken from the interior of their rooms. Each page offers a vista of the world’s wonders – natural and manmade, spiritual and sensual. In each image, photographers have captured transporting views, presented the perfect spots to observe ethereal horizons, glittering urban skylines, and truly, everything in between. You can go ahead and book these rooms (and suites, cabanas, bungalows, tents and more). Or, you can simply sit back and enjoy the view. Either way, bon voyage!
