Staying at a hotel, motel or apartment is amazing if the amenities are all complete and useful. Five-star hotels exude luxury, but nothing could defeat the feeling of staying at a place that's close to nature. These five hotels are the world's most amazing choices for nature lovers.
In Colorado, near Crested Butte, is the raved-about Taylor River Lodge overlooking the eponymous canyon. Guests can stay in genuine, well-furnished log cabins. The hotel also houses a campground for an amazing tent experience, a family outdoor lunch or intimate dinner with your loved one.
According to Arrangements Abroad, Costa Rica's The Harmony Hotel is a resort that opens up towards the beach. Inside the property is a mini animal preserve that has monkeys and hummingbirds. On the beach, guests can observe sea turtles or go horseback riding, which sounds like great recreational and natural activities.
Conde Nast Traveler notes that the Helena Bay Lodge in New Zealand might remind you of the old 1920s beachside luxury homes during the roaring stock market era. While the hotel is not the cheapest with its $4,000 a night price tag, the hotel's amenities mix traditional luxury amenities and excellent sea views for a one-of-a-kind stay.
The Plantation on Crystal River in Florida is oriented towards water diving and observing natural ocean life. The hotel also offers manatee tours as the 50-year-old establishment is home to 400 West Indian Manatees looking for a home during winter.
In Australia is The Canopy Rainforest Treehouses, which, from its name, one can derive its seclusion. Made from logs, the treehouses contain a double spa, wood fireplace, king beds and a place to barbecue and rest with a book swinging on a hammock. Guests have noted the natural, cheerful vibe of living a luxurious Tarzan-esque life during their stay.
