South Pacific Bungalows
Who doesn’t dream of Fiji? The Jean Michel Cousteau Resort will hand you tropical bliss on a silver platter. Their award-winning villas and cottages were once a coconut plantation, but today you can check into an ultra-luxe bungalow on an all-inclusive vacation. If your twosome has become a threesome, the resort is also family-friendly.
South American Lodges
If you’re looking to unplug, the Torres del Paine National Park in Chile is one of the world’s least populated regions. The isolated Explora Patagonia lodge is tucked among this stunning, pristine mountain range. Standing beneath the towering iconic Paine Massif, over the Salto Chico waterfall is an unforgettable moment belonging on every eco-driven couple’s bucket list.
The Alps are a wonderful destination year-round for travelers from all walks of life, but if you’re on a cozy holiday with your significant other, seeing these famous mountains frosted by snow is bar none. Switzerland’s Whitepod resort is the perfect vantage point for this winter wonderland. Plush bedding, a wood-burning stove, and antique local décor make each Valais pod a comfy nest, both for honeymooners and young families.
When you’re after an upgrade to your traditional camping experience, the spacious yurts of Oregon’s Siltcoos Lake Resort are about as upscale as it gets, without sacrificing your proximity to nature. Nestled between a Sikta Spruce grove and a private beach, the resort is a mere five miles away from charming Old Town Florence, making this an excellent base for exploring everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
Roughing it in the Australian bush might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but there are more comfortable ways to get close to the Outback. Longitude 131’s undulating white tents create a striking, practically otherworldly landscape against the rich, red Australian desert, just beneath the sacred Ayers Rock, or Uluru in the native language. The resort is simply teeming with amenities, like TV, WiFi, daily turndown service, laundry, and post, but you’ll also be able to experience local Anangu culture. A morning tour around Uluru by camel back is a must-do, and even the stargazing here is unique thanks to the authentic Aboriginal tales lurking behind each constellation.
