Today (June 8, 2020): Top 10 best National Geographic lodges in the world.
The National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World is a collection of lodges that invite guests to discover some of the planet’s most treasured places, while helping to protect those places for generations to come. These properties – each handpicked by National Geographic – share a strong commitment to sustainable practices and to protecting natural and cultural heritage. They embody the values that National Geographic holds close: authenticity, enrichment, and a dedication to preserving our planet’s diversity. The guest experience they offer is intimate and exceptional, inspiring guests to connect with their destination in a meaningful way – and to play a part in safeguarding it for the future. Here’s my pick of the 10 most luxurious hotels in the National Geographic collection.

10. MASHPI LODGE, ECUADOR
Nature meets luxury at Mashpi, a breathtaking creation of steel and glass deep in the cloud forests of Ecuadorian Chocó – one of the planet’s biodiversity hotspots. With floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows throughout, nothing competes with the wild here. You might catch sight of a howler monkey while soaking in the indoor Jacuzzi, or wake up to the flitting of a velvet-purple coronet just outside your room. Mashpi is a true wilderness retreat, set on 3,200 acres of cloud forest, 80% of which is primary growth. Guests don boots and get muddy exploring by day, and then return in the evening to a relaxing and sophisticated setting – a place where accommodations are simple yet stylish, the dining room soars two stories through the canopy, and you’re surrounded yet removed from the life of the jungle.

- Other accolades: Mashpi Lodge also features in my top 10 lists of the world’s best wilderness hotels and the world’s best rainforest lodges.

5. NIMMO BAY WILDERNESS RESORT, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort is the very definition of a secret hideaway: nestled into the old-growth spruce of the Great Bear Rainforest, poised over sparkling waterways, and accessible only by helicopter or floatplane. One of the world’s first ecolodges, Nimmo Bay has built a stellar reputation for offering a high-end wilderness experience amid British Columbia’s most remote fjords and secluded beaches. Spend your days exploring from sea level to 7,000 feet – kayaking among orcas and sea lions and then soaring high into the mountains in a helicopter to hike landscapes where few have ventured. Unwind in the evenings with fresh coastal cuisine, a soak in a hot tub beneath a splashing waterfall, and plenty of music and laughter around the fire on the floating dock. This is nature as it should be experienced.
