People all over Switzerland- from Zurich to Geneva, are all talking about Hotel Villa Honegg’s infinity pool. We’ve seen it across the pages of Conde Nast Traveler and Travel and Leisure and we can see why. The boutique hotel is elevated 914 meters above sea level and boasts this phenomenal view. The best time to come is July and August to soak in that Swiss sun.

Oh, hey neighbor!

This is how the Four Seasons does Africa. The four seasons lodge at the Serengeti National Park, in Tanzania, is built in front of a watering hole where you can watch a family of elephants stop for their afternoon sip. If this isn’t breathtaking enough, watch from the comfort of your own private plunge pool. You don’t even need to leave your room!

Hidden Hot Spring

Oaxaca, Mexico is known for its indigenous cultures, baroque cathedrals, and its pre-Columbian archaeological sites. It’s not as well known for its deeply underrated natural hot springs. These hot springs are tucked away on the ledge of a cliff making them so unique. However, getting in might cost you a pretty penny. Prepare to spend a whooping $1.40 to get in. This is why, we love Mexico.
