Hotel Atlantic Kempinski, Hamburg
Tomorrow might never die here but you will when you see this magnificent turn-of-the-century Hamburg hotel with spectacular views over the Elbe River. Pierce Brosnan seduced Terri Hatcher in one of the top floor suites before climbing onto the roof to kill her husband, but you can simply indulge in the blue pool before taking your lunch in the exquisite summer courtyard. Stay at the Atlantic
Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur
Go deep into classic Bond territory at the impossibly exotic Lake Palace Hotel in Udaipur, India, featured in Octopussy. Surrounded by the Aravalli Hills and accessible only by boat, the exquisite 200-year-old marble palace once served as the summer residence for Rajasthani royalty and has hosted guests such as Jackie Kennedy and Queen Elizabeth. Stay at the Lake Palace
Las Vegas Hotel and Casino
Hotels don’t come more iconic than the property formerly known as the Las Vegas Hilton, where Elvis once performed 58 consecutive sold out shows and James Bond met Plenty O’Toole over a game of craps in Diamonds are Forever. Live it up in Vegas with old style glamour at this nearly 3000-room hotel with every facility imaginable within its sprawling grounds. Stay at the Las Vegas Hotel
Couples Sans Souci, Jamaica
Channel your inner Ursula Andress in Jamaica, where the infamous beach scene of Dr No was filmed and the writer Ian Fleming lived. Now a luxurious all-inclusive resort, Couples San Souci is the perfect location for a romantic tryst. Don’t forget to pack your white bikini. Stay at Couples
Peninsula Hong Kong
As far as icons in Asia go, you would be hard-pressed to decide whether James Bond or the Peninsula is the more prominent. Founded in 1928 by one of Asia’s wealthiest families, this magnificent neoclassical property located in the heart of Kowloon is routinely voted one of the world’s greatest hotels. Cool off in the eighth floor pool or take a ride in one of the hotel’s Rolls Royce Silver Shadows, just like the one which Bond chases down in The Man with a Golden Gun. Stay at the Peninsula.
Palacio Estoril Hotel, Portugal
Go back to where it all began at the Estoril just outside Lisbon, where Ian Fleming used to drink martinis as an intelligence officer for the Royal Navy while finding inspiration for his novel Casino Royale. Stroll in palm fringed gardens overlooking the beach or sip on the world’s most famous signature cocktail at Bar Estoril. Stay at the Estoril.
