Hotels scattered in the wilderness, snow-covered igloos under a starry sky or infinity-edge rooms overlooking the ocean. In the world, it is possible to stay in hundreds of hotels in remote areas, real earthly paradises in which the structure is part of the unforgettable journey. An example is the Fogo Island Inn, on Fogo Island in Newfoundland, Canada. A sort of minimalist cube on a rocky outcrop in a fishing village, consisting of 29 suites with a sauna and whirlpool. The hotel also houses a contemporary art gallery, cinema, and library.
In Ranthambhore, India, the Oberoi Vanyavilas is a wild oasis, where you can stay to spot tigers and other animals from the comfort of a white canopy bed or the swimming pool. A three-hour drive from Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, you will be catapulted into an unspoiled part of the world.
Hamilton Island, Australia
Slapped by the wind and the waves. Clinging to a cliff at the northern end of the tropical island of Hamilton in Australia, in the middle of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, is Qualia, a decidedly on-water resort with two infinity pools that both overlook the ocean, two restaurants, and a bar. From here you can visit Whitehaven, Australia’s most photographed beach, dive, and snorkel.
San Juan Mountains, Colorado, USA
Peace and quiet are guaranteed at Dunton Hot Springs in the San Juan Mountains, Colorado. Literally in the middle of nowhere, in the most barren nature, you will find wild and rustic accommodations located in a former mining town. The hotel also houses a lakeside bathhouse and the old saloon restaurant.
Al Khuţaym, Oman
Staying at Alila Jabal Akhdar in Oman is a movie experience. Situated right on the crest of a canyon, the hotel’s incredible location is already worth the trip: the property is surrounded by breathtaking mountains, in a truly remote area. Accommodations range from comfort rooms to real luxury villas with private pools. In the evening, in the location, it is possible to book Arab-inspired dinners.
Infinite, white expanses and a row of glass igloos to experience the magic of the sky of the great North. The Northern Lights, at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Lapland, Finland, can be admired from the comfort of your bed. No need for thermal suits or hours spent in the cold. In the forest, you will find these accommodations with private saunas, and truly atmospheric, and panoramic views of the sky for the perfect Arctic adventure.
Santa Cruz, Argentina
Located in the vast expanse of Patagonia, halfway between El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park, Argentina, Eolo is a place to meditate, relax and experience nature in an intimate way. Ideal place for horseback riding, mountain biking, trekking, and bird watching.
Canyon Point, Utah, USA
It will almost feel like you are staying on Mars at the Amangiri hotel in Utah. Alone, surrounded by cosmic nothingness for miles, if not barren landscapes. A truly out-of-the-ordinary holiday, with some pampering: guests have swimming pools, spas, and massages at their disposal.
