    As the first hotel to open on St. Barts, Eden Rock has been welcoming sun-seeking vacationers for more than 60 years. A-listers like Greta Garbo and Howard Hughes have graced this hotel's hallways; today, guests say Eden Rock remains just as elegant. Each accommodation is unique, with simple neutral tones and private terraces, and guests describe a stay here as worth every penny. Splurge on a specialty villa and you'll have access to such extras as a private art gallery (in the Villa Nina) or a recording studio (in the Rockstar Villa). Eden Rock sits on St. Jean Bay on the island's northern shore, granting visitors access to pristine sands and a nearby coral reef. When you need a break from the sun, indulge in an in-room spa treatment or grab a bite to eat at the acclaimed restaurant, On The Rocks. Because this is a Relais & Châteaux property, Club 5C members can earn and use their rewards here. Note: The hotel was impacted by the 2017 hurricanes and is expected to reopen in 2019.

It was originally built in the 1820s for Sir Charles Coote and reopened in 2011 as a hotel after years of restoration. The estate's 614 acres are filled with wildlife, gardens, trails and picnic spots. Guests can participate in activities like tennis, boating, horseback riding, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, archery and falconry (some require an additional fee). On-site gardens, along with hens and bees, provide numerous ingredients for the restaurants, and other ingredients are locally sourced from nearby farmers and fishermen. The Cellar Bar has an extensive list of local whiskeys, and regular whiskey tastings are available. The 20 individually decorated guest rooms and suites are filled with period furniture, antiques, complimentary soft drink minibars, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access, Egyptian cotton linens and complimentary laundry services. For a truly memorable stay, reserve the Sir Christopher Coote suite which features 18th-century Chinese wallpaper panels, a separate sitting room, a fireplace and large windows with views of the grounds and lake. Recent guests described the hotel as excellent, especially raving about the white-glove service, palatial grounds and decor. While a stay here is not cheap, many guests said the experience was more than worth it.

    Free WiFi

    The Yeatman hotel is popular with wine connoisseurs, thanks in part to the property's impressive collection of top Portuguese wines housed within its cellars and wine-centric events like tastings, seminars and wine dinners. The property's 82 individually decorated guest rooms and suites come with private balconies or terraces, traditional Portuguese ceramic tiles, a selection of Portugal- or wine-themed books, free Wi-Fi access and LCD televisions. Select suites feature additional wine-related details like oak barrel beds and photos of local wineries. When you get hungry, recent guests suggested dining at the on-site Michelin-starred restaurant to sample some of the area's seafood and regional specialties. And while some visitors appreciated that there are two on-site infinity pools (one of which sits outside and is shaped like a wine decanter), others weren't impressed with the size of the pools and thought that the hotel should offer chairside towel service. You can find this pet-friendly hotel across the Douro River from downtown Porto.

    You'll feel like you stepped back in time once you've stayed at the Ocean House's classic New England retreat. This historic resort has been lovingly restored to its original design, down to window placements and interior wall hues. But recent guests don't visit for nostalgia's sake. Rather, they come for the courteous and attentive service staff and the secluded feel of the resort's grounds and beach. They also come for the luxurious accommodations, equipped with high-end amenities, such as flat-screen TVs, wooden furnishings and luxury toiletries. Recent guests also reported returning year after year to indulge in rejuvenating spa treatments at OH! Spa and to treat their taste buds to award-winning cuisine and signature cocktails at Ocean House's several dining venues (though many visitors said that food was expensive here). You'll find the Ocean House located in Watch Hill on the south coast of Rhode Island, about 40 miles south of Newport.

    Free WiFi

    Sitting at the base of Aspen Mountain on the southern edge of town, The Little Nell caters to snow junkies with on-site services such as a Ski Concierge team (who can secure everything from lift tickets to ski rentals) and an equipment storage center. However, guests say that the hotel's proximity to powder isn't the only reason to book. The Little Nell's two in-house restaurants  element47 and Ajax Tavern  earn high praise for their artfully prepared plates, and the hotel spa is ideal for post-skiing relaxation. Although you won't be spending much time indoors, you can look forward to resting up in a spacious and inviting guest room, surrounded by warm, soothing cream-colored hues, a gas fireplace, a well-stocked minibar and a flat-screen TV. And, like they do at The Little Nell's sister property, the Ojai Valley Inn in California, recent guests give the customer service two thumbs up, saying that the hotel's employees were some of the nicest they'd ever met.

    Hotel Wailea in Maui, Hawaii, stretches across 15 acres of expertly manicured tropical gardens. Offering just 72 suites, this adults-only hotel's calling card is its secluded atmosphere and its spacious lodging options (rooms measure 720 square feet). All suites have separate bedrooms and living areas, plus furnished lanais (balconies), kitchenettes, deep soaking tubs and Wi-Fi access. Venture out of your room to explore the grounds and partake in activities like canoeing, kiteboarding and yoga. When it's time to cool off, take a dip in the outdoor pool. Although Hotel Wailea is removed from the beach, the hotel arranges complimentary shuttle services to and from Wailea Beach, where guests have access to lounge chairs, umbrellas and bottled water. And if you're hoping to stay on the beach for lunch, the hotel's restaurant will prepare and pack a picnic for you. The property's AAA Four Diamond Award-winning restaurant, called The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea, wins favor from visitors for its Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Recent guests add that with its relaxed and quiet atmosphere, this hotel makes for an ideal couples getaway. The only drawback for some travelers is the added daily resort fee.
