Item description for Great Escapes Around the World by Angelika Taschen...

Our selection of the 90 best hotels around the globe

Whether you want to take a relaxing vacation in Asia, a backpacking journey in South America, a road trip in the USA, a cultural tour in Europe, or a safari in Africa, we've got the most inspiring and eclectic collection of hotels, guesthouses, boats, lodges, spas, and houseboats that you could ask for. In Kerala, India, discover futuristic-looking, Star Wars-style houseboats made of bamboo poles, palm leaves, and coconut fibers. For the best place to enjoy a delectable cup of joe, head for a luxury lodge and spa on a java plantation in (you guessed it) Java. An Ayurvedic spa in the Himalayas where nothing matters but peace and relaxation will certainly tempt you, or perhaps you're more the type for a lush Kenyan open-walled, thatched-roof hut fashioned from tree trunks? On a more modern vibe, oogle Gio Ponti's sleek blue and white hotel perched on the cliffs in Sorrento, Italy and you'll yearn for a sojourn there.

Other highlights include an elegant auberge in Napa Valley, California where you can stay during your wine tasting tour, a historic ranch nestled in a Death Valley oasis, an adobe hotel in the Chilean desert, a hotel built entirely of salt in Bolivia's Uyuni salt desert, and an "ecolodge" on a natural reserve in the Amazon rain forest. Just flip through the pages of this new compilation of dreamy spots to plan your next holiday, wherever on the planet it may be.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Great Escapes Around the World?

Sublime! But where is Australia?????  Dec 10, 2007
What a gorgeous book - fantastic, delicious photography, 400 pages plus, text in English, French & German (as with all Taschen books), and vital information about each resort such as current prices, types of food served, websites, e-mail addresses & even book suggestions for each destination. The only shortcoming is that Australia is not included AT ALL and this country boasts some incredible escapes, especially among the Great Barrier Reef islands off the coast of Queensland. If a title includes "Around the World" and continents such as Africa, North & South America are included as well as Europe and parts of Asia, it seems to me that Australia could have been included too and only added a few extra pages to this lovely tome. However, I still give it 5 stars and can highly recommend it as a gift for anyone who loves hotels & traveling or even as a present for yourself!
