Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, India

Big on style and room to relax — 1,800 square feet to be exact — this suite features the best of India's Rajasthani opulence paired with modern technology. From the gold-and-white marble floor laid in a traditional chevron pattern to the ornately decorated walls and ceiling covered in deep plaster relief, the suite's regal features are fit for a rajah or head of state. Noteworthy hotel guests include The Beatles, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and President Barack Obama. Image courtesy of Taj Mahal Palace

Abu Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Located on the fertile banks of the Okavango River, this casually elegant home-away-from-home is worlds away from a typical hotel suite. Constructed to resemble a tent, the room's canvas walls and ceiling contribute to the open, airy feeling while a deep wraparound porch beckons guests outdoors to enjoy panoramic views of the African bush and possibly catch a glimpse of the camp's resident elephant herd.

The Opposite House, Beijing

Experience bird's eye views of China's capital city in this 5,000-square-foot two-story penthouse. Light-filled rooms flow seamlessly together for the ultimate in modern urban living. Sleek wood and bamboo surfaces used throughout the space contribute to the streamlined aesthetic, while subtle touches of traditional Chinese decor lend a sense of history and place.

Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, India

This suite is aptly named Chandra Prakash, which means Luster of the Moon. The crown jewel of a 250-year-old pleasure palace constructed by Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1746, this suite was later used as the court of Maharana Bhopal Singh in the 1930s. Gilt moldings, sinuously carved marble and intricate ceiling frescoes add to the suite's elaborate decoration. Situated on an island in India's Lake Pichola, the hotel was used as Octopussy's lair in the 1983 James Bond film and has long been a destination for European royalty and American celebrities.

W Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island, Puerto Rico

Need a little Caribbean R&R for you and your pooch? Well, you're in luck. Pets are not only welcome they're catered to in this gardenside oasis. A private cabana located deep within the resort's tropical surroundings, the 1,000-square-foot accommodations are decorated with vibrant tropical colors, original artwork and contemporary, eclectic furnishings for a sophisticated modern island vibe.

Little Olarro, Loita Hills, Kenya

Located on a Masai game reserve in Southwestern Kenya, this luxurious suite employs traditional African construction techniques like lofty rough-hewn wood-beamed ceilings, mud walls and a woven grass roof. A gauzy canopy bed, an animal hide bench and tribal textiles exemplify African elegance. Image courtesy of Olarro Lodge

The Nines Hotel, Portland, Oregon

Art deco elegance meets modern amenities in this tastefully decorated LEED-certified hotel suite. Down pillows, 350-thread-count sheets and a plush duvet create a cozy place to land in Portland's revitalized city center. Image courtesy of The Nines Hotel

Abu Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana

Each of the six uniquely decorated tents in this remote encampment boasts a panoramic view of the Okavango Delta, the world's largest inland delta and a lush oasis in the middle of the Kalahari Desert. This well-appointed suite features comfortable leather furnishings, hardwood flooring and an indoor and outdoor shower from which you can view the natives: more than 400 species of bird, plus giraffe, wildebeest, antelope and zebra call this river their home.

Pashan Garh, Panna National Park, India

Observe India's majestic Bengal tiger from the hilltop comfort of a private stone cottage in one of India's pristine wildlife sanctuaries. Sleek, contemporary furnishings contrast beautifully with the dry-packed stone hut's rough-hewn construction. Traditional Indian block-print fabrics grace the bed and wide windows, which offer a sweeping view of the surrounding jungle. Image courtesy of Pashan Garh, Taj Safaris

Zungulila Bushcamp, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

Giving new meaning to the term "roughing it," the canvas walls and ceiling are reminiscent of a tent, but the amenities are anything but basic. Complete with an en suite bathroom and outdoor shower, plus a sunken plunge-pool, guests stay cool after a long day prowling the savanna on one of Luangwa's famous guided walking safaris. Available only from June to January, guests spend the night along a bend of the Kapamba River where natural springs attract huge herds of game. Image courtesy of Zungulila Bushcamp

The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, India

Overlooking the harbor and Gateway of India, a stone monument built to symbolize the city's openness to visitors, this suite blends European elegance with contemporary luxury. Intricately detailed wood-paneled walls and plaster ceiling work with the suite's regal color scheme and traditional furnishings to evoke the feeling of another age.
