St. Regis Lhasa Resort, Tibet
There's no end of hotels boasting great views, even if that "great view" turns out to be a scrappy piece of greenery. But if you're serious about what's outside your window, the newly opened St. Regis Lhasa, in Tibet, offers the kind of spectacle that can only be found on the Roof of the World, 12,000 feet above sea level.
The first international luxury hotel in Tibet, this 150-room property promises to immerse guests in its surroundings. It's not just the view that will remind you of where you are: Guest rooms have traditional lattice wood furniture and photography depicting local life. Eating options include a Tibetan and Nepalese restaurant, Si Zi Kang. The tearoom serves local blends, some of them aged up to 25 years, and in the spa, you can opt for Tibetan herbal treatments.
If you're looking to live the high life, this is the place.
