World’s Most Remote Resorts
Getting away from it all gets harder and harder, as cell phones and 4G devices keep us tapped into our lives. Although it may seem that truly getting away from it all is nearly impossible these days with all of our high-tech gadgets keeping us plugged into our hectic lives, there are quite a few resorts across the globe that can take you away from all that and you’re practically guaranteed not to miss the “real world” in the least.
In this review, you should know and try visiting this World’s Most Remote Resorts!
Poised on the edge of the Totara forest, this remote resort at Matauri Bay, New Zealand, offers panoramic ocean views in 22 guest rooms (with walk-in closets on 6,000-acres). The resort is owned by American hedge-fund tycoon Julian Robertson.
Cost: Starts at $623 a night per person, double occupancy, with meals and drinks all-in.
At Canyon Point, Utah, a 34-suite resort nestled in a rocky valley in the southern Utah desert that has hosted celebrity guests from Brad and Angelina to Katy Perry.
Cost: $1,000 to $3,600 a night
In Mongolia, guests stay in one of 45 hand-made felt gers, or traditional nomadic tents inspired by the homes of nomadic herders. The roomy accommodations offer wood-burning stoves, felt carpets, indigenous furnishings, hand-painted wooden beds, and ceilings that open to the stars. Activities include camel trekking, horseback riding, and visiting families of sheep- and goat-herding nomads.
In Alaska, this remote resort is located nearly 200 miles north of Anchorage on the Iditarod Trail. Winterlake Lodge’s 15 acres are so deep in Alaska’s backcountry that no roads or waterways reach it.
Cost: Starts at $1,395 per person per night, and includes meals and transportation from Anchorage to Winterlake.
In Namibia, this remote resort is set in the dune highlands of the NamibRand Nature Reserve, surrounded by majestic views of the clay-colored desert. Accommodations are in chalets with canvas blinds, overlooking grand terraces that pour out onto miles of empty sand. Begin your day watching the sunrise from your bed, take a safari drive or a hot-air balloon ride, and end with a four-course dinner. Want to get even more remote? Head to the Private Camp, two miles away, where your suite is the only man-made creation on the landscape.
At Ayers Rock, Australia, a string of 15 tents dotting a sand dune in the Outback may not sound luxurious, but the tents of Longitude 131 cover 430-square-feet and have air-conditioning, retracting blinds, and Bose sound systems.
Cost: Double occupancy starts at $2,070 per room per night. If you stay three nights or more, the price drops to $1,758.
And, once visitors do finally reach these remote spots, what awaits are some truly extraordinary travel experiences: face time with a gorilla, camel trekking in the desert, or drinking tea with a family of Mongolian nomads. Just imagine how indifferent things can be, but still remain a beauty.
