Six Ultimate Remote Luxury Resorts To Get Away from It All

Cheval Blanc

“I just want to retire and live on an island” is a regularly chanted mantra by many Americans as they toil away at work day after day. Although most don’t mean it, there is something about isolation and remoteness that recharges the batteries and clears the head. Eric Grayson, founder of Discover 7 Travel Concierge, has put together his Top Five Ultimate Remote Resorts. They may not be ideal for permanent residence, but they are certainly a few bucket list destinations to get away from it all. The only downside is you may have to wait to return to civilization to share your journey on Instagram and make all your friends immensely jealous!

Four Seasons Golden Triangle – Thailand

Four Seasons Golden Triangle- Thailand

Reaching the Four Seasons Golden Triangle is no small feat. Located in the northern region of Thailand’s rural Chiang Rai Province and bordering Myanmar, reaching this Four Seasons requires a minimum of two plane flights and a river boat-ride. You’ll spend your days caring for elephants (both young and old). Experienced handlers will teach you to feed, wash and nurture them and don’t be surprised if a few of the elephants pop by at breakfast time looking for bananas. Finally, spend a morning or two sauntering through the local markets before returning to your luxury tent, where you’ll enjoy a true glamping experience complete with personal spa.

Ultima Thule Lodge – Alaska

Ultima Thule Lodge - Alaska

Does an Alaskan cruise sound remote? Try heading to a destination where the nearest paved road is 100 miles away. Most activities require short plane journeys to various locations throughout the pristine and expansive Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Hike on a glacier, go river rafting, or embark on a safari in search of the area’s amazing wildlife. As you navigate this untouched land, you will literally be exploring places that no other human has ever been, making the Ultima Thule Lodge a must on any traveler’s bucket list.

Cheval Blanc Randheli – Maldives

Cheval Blanc Randheli - Maldives

Located 40 minutes north of Malé and accessible only by sea plane, Cheval Blanc Randheli is built along a narrow atoll in the Indian Ocean. The property’s perfect balance of contemporary design and natural surroundings allows you to immerse yourself in an island oasis. Each of the hotel’s villas contain hand-crafted local furniture based on materials from the Indian Ocean, like mother-of-pearl, coral, and rattan. Many of the villas are setup over the water, so you can wake up in the morning, take a quick dip in the clear, blue sea and then climb back up for room service. This is a must for any romantic getaway.

Minaret Station – New Zealand

Minaret Station - New Zealand

Experience top luxury in one of the Southern Hemisphere’s most remote outposts. Minaret Station sits on the edge of New Zealand’s untamed and unblemished alpine wilderness. The property is located at the head of a glacial valley within the Southern Alps. The highly-trained Minaret Station team will inspire your confidence as they guide you on heli-adventure, fishing, hunting, and heli-skiing excursions. Be forewarned, the hotel is only accessible by boat or helicopter.

The Singular Patagonia – Chile

The Singular Patagonia - Chile

Situated on nearly 30 acres of breathtaking land in Puerto Bories deep in the heart of Southern Chile’s Patagonia region overlooking the Fjord of Last Hope, this resort was brought to life after a meticulous 10-year restoration and renovation of the post-Victorian 1915 Borias Cold Storage Plant, once the epicenter of the sheep farming industry and now designated a national landmark. The new 57-room luxury resort was resurrected by fourth generation relatives of the plant’s founders who developed the area a century ago. Guests feel like true pioneers as they explore private, pristine reserves accessible only to hotel guests and have access to adrenaline pumping activities like trekking a private mountainous reserve to sailing the fjords – either way connecting and communing with nature is guaranteed.

Amankora – Bhutan

Amankora - Bhutan

Amankora consists of 72 suites distributed between five distinct lodges that spread across the Himalayan nation of Bhutan. Each lodge takes on a unique and specific identity, seamlessly incorporating not only the country’s, but also the region’s, remarkable landscape and rich cultural heritage. “Kora,” a Dzongkha word translating to a “circular journey of discovery,” is a fitting name for the hotel, which enables travelers to experience every aspect of Bhutan, the world’s last Buddhist kingdom. This is truly the land of happiness, but be forewarned: the landing into Paro Airport (the main airport in Bhtan) requires a strong constitution–the plane touches down in a narrow valley between two steep mountain ranges.
