From the sexiest bedrooms to the hottest bars and most beautiful pools, take a look at the world's leading hotels of 2014

Boutique holiday experts Mr & Mrs Smith have named their best hotels of 2014, which is as good excuse as any to peruse some truly breathtaking travel photos and to start honing our destination list for 2015. 

Instead of hunching over our desks on a cloudy November morning, we can imagine we're drinking in the view of the South China Sea from our thatched beach villa at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Vietnam - aka the world's sexiest bedroom.

Or we can mentally spirit ourselves away to the infinity lagoon of the Monastero Santa Rosa near Naples, which has been crowned the world's most beautiful hotel pool. 

From coastal chic in Brazil to eco luxury Down Under, the shortlist provides ample inspiration for next year's holiday wishlist. But some places are a little closer to home, with a hotel in London and a restaurant in the New Forest both making the cut.

Come take a look at the best and most beautiful hotel features of 2014, and get booking for your next getaway.
