Virgil called Como 'the greatest lake'. It's the deepest lake in Italy and an unusual shape: a sprawling, upside down Y, with villages and villas strung along its shore, some converted into magnificent hotels, some private homes of huge neoclassical dimensions. #LakeComo #Italy 📷 @oliverpilcherphotography

The courtyard swimming pool at Rosas & Xocolate hotel in Mérida, Mexico. Away from the bright white beaches, this colourful town of fading glory is dilapidated but still grand. The colonial city of Mérida was once home to the greatest concentration of wealth in the world. Now, writes Joanna Weinberg, 'It is not an Important City and herein lies its charm. It is not packed with visitors. You never feel you are trudging the well-worn path of someone else's Grand Tour..' #Merida #Mexico #Yucatan 📷 Amanda Marsalis

This 18th-century hotel cuts a dash, standing at the top of one of Lisbon's seven hills. Our #DesignDestination has meticulously restored interiors, elaborate rococo stucco work and a graceful spiral staircase that twirls upwards and upwards. Verride Palácio Santa Catarina made the #HotList2018, the Condé Nast Traveller edit of the most wonderful new hotels in the world over the past year.

The 35 villas at Bawah are strung along a white-sand beach or set on stilts over the water. Villas channel a smart castaway feel and huge daybeds on the verandahs encourage indolence. But treks are also an option, taking guests up through the forest, while the spa is set in thatched domes on a hillside. This far-flung retreat made the #HotList2018, our roundup of the best hotels in the world right now. See the full list on cntraveller.com now. @bawahreserve #indonesia

A late-summer afternoon by the swimming pool at Zervudachi House in Hydra. On this Greek island there are no land vehicles, not even push bikes. On the cobbles, a line of donkeys are ready to carry suitcases up to the hotels and apartments. #Hydra #Greece 📷 @oliverpilcherphotography

#Sunday at Fairmont Maldives, Sirru Fen Fushi is the sunshine queen of the Indian Ocean. This hotel, with its enormous, glamorous over-water villas, made the #HotList2018, our definitive list of the most exciting new hotels in the world.

The bar at Hotel Tiki Tiki Tulum, Mexico's barefoot beach hangout. Not far away, overhanging the Caribbean, are ruins dating from the Mayan civilisation. After them, nobody much turned up until a handful of North American hippies in the 1970s, #Tulum #Mexico 📷 Jon Attenborough

This Sydney seaside pad is home to the owner of London's Petersham Nurseries. Palm Beach, where it sits, is to Sydney what the Hamptons are to New York: there's a wide buttery beach with the crashing surf on one side and an estuary dotted with sailing boats on the other. The house, built in the 1940s, is a scattering of wooden structures carved into the cliff. #Sydney

Head to Malibu, California's sparkling beach town, where the rich and famous rub shoulders with salty-haired surfer kids. 'Whatever else may be said of Malibu,' wrote the novelist James M Cain in 1933, 'it is probably the finest beach ever created by God.' #Malibu @jackjohns @owenmadeup

Tents in the woods in Big Sur, California, make up part of Ventana: a fixture since 1975, built by film producer Lawrence A Spector. When winter storms hit Big Sur last year, Ventana weathered an eight-month closure by getting a spectacular makeover. The Sur House restaurant now has what is plausibly California’s best view, and the hotel has a new infinity-edged hot tub and outdoor spa cabanas. All reasons we named it one of the most exciting hotels of this year in the #HotList2018. See the full round-up on the homepage now. #BigSur #California
