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.

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.
