When heading on holiday, most people will want a break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and will head somewhere remote where they can simply relax and unwind. As luck would have it, there are plenty of hotels around the world with mesmerising wilderness settings and we’ve picked 6 of the best here at Coolector HQ.
Check out our picks of 6 of the best wilderness hotels below:
Amangiri, Utah, United States
Amangiri is a spectacular, remote hideaway which can be found in Utah, nestled within the luminous canyons of the American Southwest. It is situated in a protected valley in Canyon Point and it boasts out of this world, sweeping views of the surrounding landscapes which will serve as the perfect backdrop to the ultimate in relaxing getaways. The luxury 5-star resort has both action packed adventure experiences and a peaceful retreat vibe filled with spas and relaxing activities.
Fogo Island Inn, Newfoundland, Canada
Fogo Island Inn can be found on the rugged shores of the wild North Atlantic Ocean in Newfoundland in Canada. It is a blissful retreat nestled atop stilts, which does a superb job of giving each of the 29 suites floor-to-ceiling views of Newfoundland’s sky and sea. The hotel’s interior boasts a distinctive aesthetic which is a celebration of Newfoundland’s traditional fishing culture, and the building’s angular design is a nod to the rough contours of Fogo Island’s jagged and uneven landscape. When you stay here, you can traverse across the island’s many trails to discover herds of caribou and foxes in their natural surroundings and if you arrive in summer, you might be lucky enough to see whales migrating across the Atlantic.
Awasi, Patagonia, Chile
Located in a private reserve overlooking Torres del Paine National Park, Awasi Patagonia has a mere 14 villas and a main lodge so you’ll really be able to enjoy the peace and relaxation on offer without bumping into many other guests. Each one of the villas is assigned with a private guide and 4WD which means that guests can explore the stunning Patagonia countryside at their own pace, visiting where they want, when they want. Awasi Patagonia has views over the Torres del Paine Mountain Range, the Patagonian Steppe and Lake Sarmiento.
