Casa-Andina Casa Andina Private Collection Isla Suasi, Peru - INDULGE

Located on Lake Titicaca's only private island, this is a peaceful eco-lodge with panoramic views of Titicaca. While here, you can enjoy saunas, nature walks, outdoor barbecues and fantastic sunsets: living in the heart of this dramatic environment but in absolute comfort.

La-Moka Hotel La Moka, Las Terrazas, Cuba - COMFORT

Hotel La Moka has a natural and peaceful setting on the forested slopes just above the lake and local community of Las Terrazas. Rooms are tastefully decorated and there are some located within the village for a great opportunity to experience Cuban life.

Santa-Cruz Santa Cruz, Galapagos - COMFORT

A first-class vessel for exploring the Galapagos, boasting air-conditioned cabins, knowledgeable on-board staff and facilities to truly spoil you (why not take a Jacuzzi as you cruise the islands)?

Lisu-Lodge Lisu Lodge, Lisu Village, Thailand - AUTHENTIC

This award-winning eco-lodge is located in the north of Thailand. It offers a charming, authentic and responsible experience and is run by a dedicated and friendly team of local Lisu people.

Angkor-Village-Resort Angkor Village Resort, Siem Reap, Cambodia - COMFORT

Inspired by traditional Cambodian villages, these wooden cottages nestle among tropical ponds and gardens. Staying just a stone’s throw away from the famous Angkor Wat Temples can ensure you a crowd-free start to the day.

Vinh-Hung Vinh Hung I, Hoi An, Vietnam - COMFORT

Formerly an old Chinese trader’s home, this boutique hotel has inherited Hoi An’s unique architectural flavour. Staying in the original wooden house, you are in the heart of the action and minutes away from the famous Japanese Covered Bridge.

Bush-Camping Bush camping, Amboseli and Masai Mara, Kenya - AUTHENTIC

These bush camps are designed for those who believe the wildlife safari experience and high quality guiding are paramount. You will stay in small two-man dome tents with private toilets and showers. This isn’t luxury accommodation, the price is good and the wildlife experience is great.

Rufiji-River-Camp Rufiji River Camp, Selous, Tanzania – COMFORT

With a fantastic location high up on the banks of the Rufiji River, these tents afford a fascinating insight into wildlife drinking from the water’s edge. You can sit in comfort and watch hippos and crocodiles wallowing below.

Pongwe-Zanzibar Pongwe, Zanzibar - COMFORT

A true paradise retreat, the Pongwe Beach Hotel is in a secluded bay on Zanzibar in the Indian Ocean. Take a boat trip to snorkel around the coral reef or sip a long cocktail in the shade of a palm tree. Pretty cottages line the beach, each with their own veranda.

Wadi-Rump-Camp-New Traditional Camp, Wadi Rum, Jordan - AUTHENTIC

For an authentic desert experience, let the local Bedouins be your hosts. Enjoy a traditional Arab mezze cooked over a fire before bedding down under the star-speckled Wadi Rum sky – under canvas if you prefer.
