1. Hacienda de San Antonio, Colima, Mexico
There aren't many hotel bedrooms that can boast magnificent views of an active volcano, wreathed in billowing steam clouds, but at Hacienda de San Antonio, this is exactly what you'll see from the El Quetzal Junior Suite, earning it a number one spot in our most romantic rooms roundup. Owned by the Goldsmith family—who have turned their eco-estate at Cuixmala into something of a travel phenomenon—this sun-kissed, blushing pink 19th-century mansion in the Mexican highland state of Colima has been decorated with style and passion.
The Hacienda's elegant arched buildings sit serenely in a jaw-dropping landscape: Manicured green lawns streaked with streams give way to orange trees, coffee plants and avenues of bamboo—color-soaked scenery stretches in every direction. If Mother Nature's awesome power is a little much for your nerves, check into El Sol, the largest of the hotel's suites, for a honeymoon splurge that adds a bed you can lose your partner in, grand tiled fireplaces, beautiful wall paintings and a private terrace. We doubt you'll even make it outside to do any of those volcano-climbing, nature-spotting, bird-watching, horse-riding expeditions you had planned.
