Commanding views, whether ocean, mountain or valley, coupled with enviable locales give hotels endless allure — it’s no wonder they’re among the most coveted travel accommodations in the world.
These are hotels worth daydreaming about for future trips, even if the pandemic means a stay isn’t in your immediate future.
Perched 1,000 feet above the Maasai Mara in Kenya, Angama Mara is on the edge of the Great Rift Valley and offers panoramas of the plains that stretch on and on. The camp’s name was inspired by the Swahili word for “suspended in mid-air.” The site also served as a location for the 1985 film “Out of Africa.”
Guests can expect top-quality game viewing, including Africa’s Big Five, every month of the year, both on game drives and on walking safaris. Amenities include a photography studio, fitness center, an art gallery, a 40-foot-long swimming pool and a studio where local Maasai women bead bespoke items.
