Travel often? Whether it’s for work or pleasure, staying in a comfortable hotel with lots of amenities is nice. Some hotels cost more than others, but here’s a list of places that have a special feel, a flavor that is all-embracing for the location represented.

Farris Bad — Larvik, Norway

Farris Bad is a hidden gem situated on the southern coast of Norway, built right on the beach on purpose, we’ll get to that in a moment. The hotel is modernly designed with a generous buffet breakfast and stunning views of the sunrise in the morning. However, what makes the place so special is its spa. The spa is world-class with warm, cold, and lukewarm baths. The main attraction is taking a superhot group sauna and then cold plunging outside into the -1.7c seawater. The juxtaposition of the experiences makes for a powerful detox on the body. In winter, if outdoor activities or cold weather aren’t your thing, then staying here is the solution. This is a place where one can get a lot of work done quietly.

Ruz Hotels — Istanbul, Turkey

Ruz Hotels Istanbul is perhaps the sexiest, understated, hotel in Galata. Unique in that it’s one of the only hotels to have a fully updated façade vs the rest of the buildings in Istanbul that look rundown or dilapidated. Inside, the original brick from the building is ever-present, as you walk in, there’s a first-floor bar, gym, and work area that’s easy on the eyes with dim lighting everywhere you roam. Leading upstairs there’s a circular marble staircase reaching up to a 5th-floor outdoor bar and then the 6th-floor rooftop that competes with Galata tower for a semi panoramic view of the city. The rooms are sexy, staged well with heated floors in the bathroom, and stylish robes.

W Hotel — Miami, Florida

W Hotel Miami. Let’s skip over the fact that the rooms are nice and go straight to the amenities. There’s a 62-meter swimming pool and 10-meter jacuzzi both of which are the largest residential bath pools in North America (residential because they are shared with the “Icon Brickell” condominiums). Then there’s the spa which is an expansive open concept with marble and grey vein tile and multiple hot and cold pools.

Golf Hermitage — Saanen, Switzerland

The Golf Hermitage in Saanen, Switzerland is situated in one of the world’s elite locations adjacent to Gstaad. Serving a generously large international buffet breakfast with everything you can think of. The rooms are of typical Swiss standard that you can except, wooden furniture and extra fluffy white comforters. Downstairs there’s a Turkish bath and heated saltwater pool that leads outside with a beautiful view of the surrounding ski slopes. Visiting the restaurant for raclette is a must.

Four Points Sheraton — Pristina, Kosovo

Four Points Sheraton is one of the best 4 stars in the Balkans. The lobby is large, the service is friendly, and the food is very tasty. Then there’s the gym and spa which are both modern and inviting. Situated in a luxury residential district, The Four Points Sheraton Pristina is quite different from those located elsewhere, come and see for yourself.
