Hotels To Visit Before You Die

Don't ask me why, but I've always had a curious obsession with hotels. Like Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, who I heard paints his hotel rooms, for me there's just something fascinating about globetrotters stopping in for a bit of transient luxury.

So this recent article from MSNBC, of Hotels To Stay In Before You Die, was like catnip. Topping the list: Hotel Cipriani, Venice, Italy; Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, Calif.; Singita, Sabi Sand Reserve, South Africa; Plaza Athenee, Paris, France; Explora en Patagonia, Chile; Chateau Marmont, Hollywood, Calif.; Park Hyatt, Tokyo, Japan; Le Sirenuse, Positano, Italy; Four Seasons, New York City; Banyan Tree Maldives Madivaru, the Maldives.

A subjective list, of course. But a bit of a shock nonetheless, that none of the winners were from Indonesia. Not even any of the legendary Aman Resorts, like Amanadiri, Amanusa or Amankila on Bali, or Amanwana on Moyo Island off Sumbawa. To repair the oversight, any reader suggestions for the most stunningly luxurious hotel in Indonesia? Not that any of us could afford it, but hey, it's fun to dream ...
