By design, luxury hotels are romantic. The exquisite attention to detail, the snazzy designer touches, the views and of course, those leisurely breakfasts in bed. But when it comes to romance, a few hotels stand out from the rest. Here are ten of the most romantic hotels in the world, definitely worth traveling for.

Paris: Shangri-La Paris

Worth Traveling For: 

No better postcard-perfect view of Paris’ iconic (and sparkly) Eiffel Tower and River Seine.  Once the home of  Prince Roland Bonaparte, the hotel maintains its splendor with lovely marquetry desks and exotic orchids.

New York:  Baccarat Hotel

Worth Traveling For: 

Opulent and beyond decadent, we love the crystal chandeliers and ruby-red pops of color. Parisian glam in Manhattan.

London:  Chiltern Firehouse

Worth Traveling For: 

André Balazs’ first hotel outside the US. The hotelier (Chateau Marmont, The Mercer, and The Standard Hotels) pulled all the stops in this former brick fire station. Rooms come with fireplaces and art-deco bathrooms, even the restaurant is a destination.

Los Angeles: The LINE LA

Worth Traveling For: 

Mid-century modern, there’s no mistaking you’re in the city of angels. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills. While the Michelin-star restaurant – set on a leafy terrace by the pool – oozes romance.

Mexico: Viceroy Los Cabos

Worth Traveling For: 

Acclaimed Mexican architect Miguel Angel Aragonés brings the luxury wow factor to Cabo – artfully blending glass, natural lighting and pure white interiors against the blue Sea of Cortez. Star attraction: Nido, the nest-like restaurant suspended between ocean and land.

Portugal: Bela Vista Hotel & Spa

Worth Traveling For: 

The Algarve’s very first hotel. Set on the clifftop at Praia da Rocha, this stylish hotel retains its original stained glass windows, painted wooden ceiling, and signature blue-and-white Portuguese tiles.

Marrakech:La Mamounia

Worth Traveling For: One of the world’s most stunning hotels; renowned for its opulent jewel tones, plush velvets, intricate Moorish tile work and furnishings. But mostly, for its impeccable service. 

Rome: Hotel de Vilòn Rome

Worth Traveling For: 

Originally built in the 16th century, this intimate 18-room hotel overlooks the private gardens of Palazzo Borghese.

Santorini: Mystique Hotel Santorini

Worth Traveling For: 

With its Cycladic-inspired architecture and endless views of the caldera and Aegean Sea, Mystique Hotel Santorini is everything you imagined Greece to be. And more.

Peru: Rio Sagrado Belmond Peru

Worth Traveling For: 

The perfect intro to Peru; set in the Sacred Valley with views of the Urubamba River, the vibe is both relaxing and spiritual. And who doesn’t love the resident llamas.
