#10. Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy – Hanoi, Vietnam
From the welcome drinks and snacks upon arrival to made-to-order breakfast daily, Hanoi La Siesta Hotel Trendy is winning over traveler after traveler with its “impeccable” service – and the location (right in the heart of Hanoi’s Old Quarter) certainly doesn’t hurt, either.
#9. Nayara Springs – La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica
At Nayara Springs in Costa Rica, guests get the authentic rainforest experience with a luxury-hotel twist – think infinity pool, outdoor spa treatments, personal hosts, and neighborly toucans. Only way in and out is a footbridge that stretches above the tree canopies …not that you’d actually ever want to leave.
#8. La Reserve Paris Hotel & Spa – Paris, France
Just off the Champs d’Elysee and overlooking the Grand Palais, Eiffel Tower, Pantheon and Condorde obelisk, it hardly gets more quintessentially Paris than La Reserve Paris Hotel & Spa. Adding to the effect? A Belle Epoque-style aesthetic – and of course, your very own butler.

Based on its rave reviews, Gili Lankanfushi is about as close as you can get.
