Unfortunately we have nearly forgotten how rewarding it is to unplug from technology for a while and enjoy all that nature has to offer. The only thing better than getting outside for a few hours on a sunny afternoon is spending an entire week long holiday appreciating the outdoors. And there are a lot of companies offer luxury accommodations around the world to help you do just that.
From an Australian beach bolthole so remote it can only be reached by air to a Peruvian resort overlooking a lake, Conde Nast Traveller has chosen the world’s best wilderness hotels for 2017.
For a spell-binding sneak peek of the selection, which features in the January issue’s prestigious Gold List, read on.
Amangiri, Utah, USA
Amangiri desert sanctuary is set in an otherworldly Utah location with its swimming pool built from a 164 million-year-old rock. If you look for the way to disconnect with this world, this luxury desert retreat is the best deal. Couple for sure will enjoy the terrace fires, starry skies and bed on top of the roofs. If you search for adventures – discover canyons and Lake Powell located close by.
Berkeley River Lodge, Western Australia
There is hardly more isolated place that this one, as the string of 20 villas can be achieved by guests only by helicopter or air taxi. The best advice for the tourists is to have a swim in the nearby creek, as the river and Timor sea, which your bedroom windows will overlook are packed with crocodiles and sharks.
Titilaka, Lake Titicaca, Peru
This is a true Peruvian gem. Located on the Lake Titicaca, the guests will enjoy the spectacular views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel will provide you with a wide range of activities like catamaran trip and visiting historic sites. Guests will have a chance to refresh their energy in one of the 18 bedrooms, equipped with heated floors and bath tubs.
Jawai, Rajasthan, India
This wild lodge is located between hills and forests, where tigers are usual guests in these nine lavish suites, dining tent and a swimming pool.
Singita Sabora Tented Camp, Grumeti, Tanzania
If you’re craving a stay immersed in nature with the opportunity for thrilling animal encounters then Singita ticks all the boxes. There are only nine tents available in the Great Migration path of a 350, 000 acre private game reserve.
