Not only will you arrive by white water raft ride into the resort, but you can dine 60ft above the jungle floor in a kapok tree
Just because you’re in the jungle, it doesn’t mean that you have to leave those little luxuries behind. Book into one of these tropical forest retreats
1 – THE ONE WITH A THRILLING WHITE WATER RIDE ARRIVAL
If you’re looking for a jungle adventure, the Pacuare Lodge in Costa Rica is hard to beat. Not only will you arrive by white water raft ride into the resort, but you can dine 60ft above the jungle floor in a kapok tree or relax on a terrace that looks out over the river. Spend the day abseiling down waterfalls, going for a zipline ride through the jungle canopy or hiking to the village of the indigenous Cabecar people, and the night, dining 60 feet above the jungle floor.
2 – THE ONE THAT'S A TREEHOUSE
What could make a jungle lodge more exciting? When it’s a tree house! This riverside retreat in New South Wales comes with everything a luxe holiday lover needs – including healing waters, a spa and tennis court. If you can tear yourself away from your treetop lodge, you can also go kayaking, snorkelling, horse riding and fishing too.
3 – THE ONE WITH PHENOMENAL OUTDOOR TUBS
Nat Geo named it one of the best hotels in Brazil and it’s not hard to see why. Set in a private reserve that can only be entered by boat, it’s the perfect destination if you really want to get away from it all. Go for nature walks, canoeing adventures or history tours, then ease those muscles by relaxing on your private terrace or in your huge outdoor tub.
4 – THE ONE IN THE HIMALAYAS
Leave the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu behind and head to Karnali Lodge on the edge of Bardia National Park. This tranquil retreat comes with chic suites, organic food and breathtaking views. And it also features eight resident elephants, which will act as your tour guides as you go for morning treks throughout the jungle.
5 – THE ONE IN A TIGER RESERVE
This retreat may be under canvas, but trust us, it’s no less glamorous. At this eco-friendly resort, you can enjoy dinner under the stars, a bubble bath in your ensuite tub and uninterrupted views of the river from your terrace. And once you’ve soaked in the relaxing atmosphere of this resort, you can go on safari and see some of the most beautiful majestic creatures on earth.
