Our Top Picks

We’ve Selected our Favorite Lodges that Encompass Both Luxurious Accommodations in Outstanding Locations

First impressions count. Arriving at one of our top picks, we want you to be speechless, blown away by the drama of location, the imaginative architectural design, the finesse of the interiors, and the grace and professionalism of the staff. Any one of these features is a tall order to achieve, especially in a remote, underdeveloped location, but realising them all at once shows unusual prowess. When it happens, it’s a joy to behold and deserving of enthusiastic celebration.

Sujan Jawai was built entirely from scratch, but it draws upon centuries of opulence and unbeatable service: India’s maharajas had the most discerning tastes but also the most demanding standards. Here you can live the life of royalty, marvelling at how abundant adventure is entwined with sumptuous splendour.
 
Half a world away in the UNESCO listed Torres del Paine National Park, Tierra Patagonia makes our list of top picks for very different reasons. Here, it is the landscape which captivates you, and every aspect of the building has been designed to capitalise on the location. Your hunger for the mountains, the snow, and the water will never be sated, but you can relish the panorama from a hundred different angles.

Accommodation:
Sujan Jawai

Sujan Jawai - a Relais & Chateaux property in a leopard rich wilderness - takes luxury to a whole other level. An Indian maharaja would be fortunate to call this tented camp home. It’s a property completely in balance with its ecosystem, with a light, sustainable environmental footprint.

Accommodation:
Ellerman House

Ellerman House is the quintessential private retreat for a family or group of friends, and the spa is truly world class. Be sure to dine in at least one night as the cellars are stocked with 17,000 bottles of wine.

Accommodation:
Old Mondoro Bushcamp

A family-run camp in the Lower Zambezi National Park that provides an authentic safari experience without compromising on luxury or service, Old Mondoro Bushcamp offers fantastic views of the Zambezi and unbeatable wildlife encounters, with an emphasis on sustainability.

Accommodation:
Duba Plains

Botswana is known for its luxurious camps, but even here Duba Plains stands out. The newly rebuilt property is extraordinarily beautiful, in a superb location, has excellent activities, and the game viewing of elephant, big cats, and rhino is the icing on the cake.

Accommodation:
Tierra Patagonia

Emerging from the hillside is a fascinating piece of award-winning architecture: The Tierra Patagonia Hotel and Spa. With magnificent views of the Torres del Paine National Park, this hotel is a luxurious yet cosy hideaway in the heart of Chilean Patagonia.

Accommodation:
Silver Cloud

Silver Cloud is the world’s largest and most luxurious ice class cruise ship, offering superior service while visiting spectacular destinations, and inspiring adventurers around the world. The views from the ship’s private verandas are simply astonishing.

Accommodation:
Awasi Iguazu

Awasi Iguazu is the newest and most exciting property near Iguazu Falls. On the banks of the Iguazu River and surrounded by rainforest, each sumptuous villa comes with its own expert wildlife guide and 4x4 so you can combine a fascinating safari with visits to the world’s most stupendous waterfall.
