Remember going on holiday?
Travelling abroad seems like a distant memory, but could be back on the cards very soon.
If you feel out of the loop and are in need of some inspiration, fear not.
Hotels.com has unveiled its 2021 ‘Lust List,’ or in other words, 10 impressive hotels that travellers have searched and browsed for – but not yet booked.
And there’s truly something for everyone with luxury yachts, jungle retreats and rooms with private pools – around the globe.
These are the top 10 properties that made it onto the Lust List:
1. Treehouse London
This four-star hotel boasts incredible views of the capital’s skyline and offers a relaxing retreat in the heart of the city – with beautiful tropical plants dotted around the lobby, restaurant and terrace.
As it’s located in Marylebone, it’s also just a short walk from London’s famous parks and sites – pretty ideal.
2. Pulitzer Amsterdam
Hidden amongst the city’s stunning canals, this five-star hotel combines traditional and modern Dutch design. The 225 unique guest rooms and suites include beamed ceilings, fireplaces, antiques and more.
It’s made up of 25 connecting Golden Age canal houses that date back to the 17th century.
3. The Knickerbocker Hotel, New York
This spot offers a calming escape amongst the hustle and bustle of New York City.
Dining is covered by celebrity chef Charlie Palmer and the rooftop bar offers sensational views of The Big Apple.
4. Colony Club by Elegant Hotels, Barbados
In need of a peaceful retreat?
Colony Club has it covered with its palm trees and tropical gardens – plus healthy dining and wellbeing facilities.
5. Absolute Pleasure Yacht, London
Embrace luxury yacht life without even leaving the dock at this spot in London’s Canary Wharf.
The venue sleeps 10 people across one master suite, one double cabin and two twin rooms – all of which have their own ensuite facilities – and there’s an upstairs terrace, too.
6. Dubrovnik Palace, Croatia
This five-star hotel offers the best of both worlds, as it’s nestled between the seafront and a pine forest.
There are sea views from every room as well as an on-site swimming pool – not to mention guests are just moments away from Dubrovnik’s Old Town.
7. Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate, Cornwall
Cornwall’s beaches can get pretty rammed during the summer months, but guests of Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate need not worry. That’s because it includes a privately-owned Blue Flag beach on its grounds.
If that wasn’t enough, there are sea views from every room, a spa and private pools to enjoy.
8. The Barracks Hotel Sentosa, Singapore
This hotel was once a British artillery outpost, but now it’s a picture of luxury with a tranquil pool, impressive rooms and incredible restaurants – and even offers sunrise yoga and champagne afternoon tea.
9. Caesars Palace Bluewaters, Dubai
You name it, Caesars Palace Blutewaters delivers it, from a 500m private beach and swimming pools to a luxury spa and restaurants – even clubs for kids and teens.
10. The Venetian, Las Vegas
Get a taste of Venice in Las Vegas at this hotel. The spot boasts its own canals that you can take a gondola ride on.
But of course, you’ll still find typical Vegas trademarks such as huge swimming pools, bars, restaurants, casinos, live shows and night clubs on-site.
