We’ve all been experiencing especially difficult times due to the ongoing pandemic, and it has made it impossible or at the very least very difficult to travel. Many of us rely on travel in order to relax and unwind, and so the loosening of certain restrictions are certainly welcome. What better way to treat yourself kindly than by spending some time at one of the best resort hotels in the continental U.S.? These are the most desirable hotels according to Travel + Leisure‘s World’s Best Awards.
The Lake House on Canandaigua, Canandaigua, New York
Located right on the Canandaigua Lake, the hotel features 125 guest rooms and suites all designed to make your lake getaway as enjoyable as possible. With hand carved furniture, Waterworks rain showers, and soft and cozy linens, you’ll never want to leave.
Nobu Ryokan Malibu, California
If you’ve ever wanted to feel the way celebrities do when they go away, this is the hotel destination for you. While each night comes with a hefty price tag, it is certainly worth it. The Japanese inspired hotel is absolutely stunning, with jaw dropping ocean views that will guarantee to relax you no matter what you’ve been dealing with this year.
Pickering House Inn, Wolfeboro, New Hampshire
If a New England getaway is more up your alley, then Pickering House Inn is the place for you. Once the homestead of a prominent New Hampshire family, it has been transformed into a beautiful hotel with modern amenities. It’s also located right in the center of downtown Wolfeboro, which is located in the Lakes Region of the state. It’s also a great location for events and weddings, and provides a stunning backdrop for photos.
The Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek Ranch, Saratoga, Wyoming
While the word ‘ranch’ doesn’t typically conjure up the association with luxury, Brush Creek Ranch is a total exception to that. If you enjoy a vacation that is both relaxing and full of fun activities, this is the spot you want to stay at. While there are plenty of spa amenities available, you can also go fly fishing, horseback riding, rock climbing, ATV riding, golfing, hiking, and plenty more.
The Setai, Miami Beach, Florida
If you want the most luxurious experience Miami Beach has to offer, look no further than the Setai.
