Hot hotels in perfect destinations for winter travel.

Uruguay

Head south of the equator to Punta del Este and join the jet set at Las Piedras Fasano (doubles from $850), which has 20 sleek bungalows designed by São Paulo–based Isay Weinfeld. The restaurant serves Italian dishes like osso buco and duck ravioli. A private car whisks guests to the exclusive La Barra and José Ignacio beaches, a five-minute drive away.

Mexico

Culture buffs won’t want to miss the stylish Hotel Matilda (doubles from $295), a modern, white-walled retreat that overlooks San Miguel de Allende. On the walls: art from the owner’s collection, which includes works by such luminaries as Diego Rivera.

Nevis

After a long-awaited two-year, $24 million renovation, Four Seasons Resort Nevis ($445) is back in business and better than ever. The 196 spruced-up guest rooms are decorated with teak furnishings and have sprawling outdoor verandas.

Maldives

Play castaway at Anantara Kihavah Villas (doubles from $2,200), where frangipani-scented pool villas come with outdoor showers, private pools, and wooden decks that hover over a blue lagoon.

India

At the Taj Falaknuma Palace (doubles from $773) in Hyderabad, Rajasthani gardens, Edwardian paintings, and chandelier-filled halls are fit for a maharajah. The hotel, a 19th-century royal guest house, took 11 years to restore.
