The 7 Sexiest Hotels in the World

SmarterTravel

Order room service and then hang the “do not disturb” sign on the door—these seven seriously sexy hotels will have you considering not leaving your room for your entire stay. 

Save these hotels for a romantic trip with your partner—solo travelers may feel a little lonely at these sultry properties where you can cuddle beneath the stars or bathe in your own champagne-shaped hot tub. 

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Saariselkä, Finland

Heat things up on an Arctic vacation at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, where you can sleep underneath the stars (or the Northern Lights if you’re lucky) in a glass igloo.

Cuddle up close together in a small glass igloo or enjoy a bit more space in the Kelo-Glass Igloos, a log chalet with a glass igloo bump-out for stargazing. These luxe cabins feature a private sauna and fireplace to warm things up even further on chilly nights.

The Standard High Line, New York City, New York

Every one of the 338 rooms at The Standard High Line features a full wall of floor-to ceiling windows. When the curtains are open, many of the rooms can easily be seen into from the popular High Line walking path below—earning this hotel a reputation for attracting exhibitionists. 

For an extra-sexy trip, book The Standard’s Liberty Suite, advertised as a “wood-paneled adult playground,” featuring a seven-foot round platform bed, oversized two-person bathtub, and a large walk-in rain shower.

Hotel Costa Verde, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

Ever wanted to join the mile-high club? The 727 Fuselage Suite at Costa Rica’s Hotel Costa Verde might be the closest you can get without getting arrested. Set in a painstakingly refurbished vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe and perched 50-feet above the jungle, the suite offers privacy and great views. 

The former jet now features modern amenities such as air conditioning, a private bathroom, kitchenette, and outdoor terrace with ocean views. 

One & Only Reethi Rah, Reethi Rah, Maldives

Suspended over the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, One & Only Reethi Rah offers plenty of private hideaways, but the sexiest rooms have to be the Grand Water Villas. These over-water villas have private infinity pools, above-water hammocks, outdoor showers, and views for miles. 

Lion Sands Tinga Lodge, Kruger National Park, South Africa

Sabi Sands Game Reserve

If you want total solitude, reserve one of Lion Sands’ luxury treehouses. A safari vehicle will drop you off (with a two-way radio in case you need anything) and leave you utterly alone until the next morning. The only neighbors you may hear are the lions and other animals roaming around just below you.

Stairs (with a lockable door to keep out predators) lead up to an enclosed private bathroom and then to an open air-platform where a plush bed awaits under mosquito nets. Break out your picnic dinner and watch the sunset, and then enjoy champagne under the stars the rest of the night.

Pocono Palace Resort, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

For a little retro romance, head to Pennsylvania, where sexy suites await at the Pocono Palace Resort. Impress your date by booking one of the Champagne Tower Suites, where the centerpiece of the room is a seven-foot tall champagne glass-shaped whirlpool bath. When you’re tired of bubbles, take the party to the in-room heated heart-shaped pool. 

The Conrad Maldives, Rangali Island, Maldives

Indulge your underwater fantasies in The Muraka residence at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. This two-level villa is half above water, and half below. Above water there are two bedrooms, an outdoor deck, and private infinity pool from which to admire the sweeping Indian Ocean Views.

Descend to the second level and you’ll be submerged underwater (no swimming required). A large bedroom sits under a 180-degree clear curved acrylic dome so you can feel like you’re sleeping inside an aquarium.
