The National Geographic Society announced its newest foray in world-class travel experiences: National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World.
This is a collection of 38 boutique hotels in extraordinary places around the world with a demonstrated commitment to sustainability, authenticity and excellence. These lodges offer an outstanding guest experience while supporting the protection of cultural and natural heritage and embracing sustainable tourism practices.
We are thrilled to present National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, a collection of world-class lodges and hotels in extraordinary places around the world where guests can be sure of comfort and excellent service, but also expect to be enriched and inspired.
From the thatched bungalows of Lapa Rios, perched above the sea in the jungles of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, to the exquisite traditional architecture of Bhutan’s Zhiwa Ling Hotel, these lodges share National Geographics commitment to protecting cultural and natural heritage and embracing sustainable tourism practices while offering guests a rich array of meaningful experiences.
As a National Geographic guest, you receive the best available rates, and you’re also treated to a complimentary National Geographic Exclusive experience: an opportunity to delve even deeper into the local culture and environment—a private hike with the resident biologist at Mashpi Lodge in Ecuador, for instance, or a private dinner under the stars in an ancient milkwood forest boma at South Africa’s Grootbos Private Nature Reserve.
