    That is a bit of an anthropomorphism (the balcony does not invite anything; the balcony is inanimate). You can say that as a somewhat flowery phrase but I don't see it as a valid use. The scenery could invite you to explore, and the balcony could invite you to get outside and enjoy the air, but the balcony, even if it gives you a view of the great scenery, isn't really inviting you to the scenery of itself. The view is inviting. the balcony, well, I don't know of many balconies that seem inviting to me, even when they offer fantastic views.

    Almost. The balcony of this hotel invites you to enjoy the great scenery.

    It's correct, but unnatural.
