Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, India

Indian fashion photographer Denzil Sequeira has turned his family's 19th-century Goan beach compound into a fabulously off-the-beaten-path hotel whimsically named Elsewhere. Located on a tiny spit of land between a saltwater creek and the Arabian Sea, the three luxury tents and four colonial beach houses (one a former bakery, another the old livestock quarters) are spread out amid a forest of coconut trees and accessed by a rickety wooden bridge. The privacy makes it a favorite of Bollywood stars and American celebs (Sequeira prefers not to share names). At sunset, local fishermen pull their boats ashore and sell guests the day's catch; Elsewhere staff will then turn it into dishes like Goan fish curry.
