We all like need to get lost every once in a while. But many of us prefer to get lost somewhere a little more upscale. Somewhere “deserted beach” meets “4,000-square luxurious suite”. For those of us who like to get away from it all while enjoying the best of the best, here are the world’s most remote luxury resorts:
Kauri Cliffs, Matauri Bay, New Zealand
Very few places are able to combine nature and luxury quite like the Kauri Cliffs. Nestled on the edge of New Zealand’s Totara Forest, this remote luxury resort only houses 22 guest rooms, all of which feature a private porch and open fireplace. If money is not object, book the spacious Owner’s Suite which also comes with a private infinity pool and kitchen. To enjoy the seclusion at this one-of-a-kind resort, take an hour-long helicopter ride from Auckland right to the resort or fly into Kerikeri Bay with Air New Zealand and then drive.
Kamalame Cay, Andros, Bahamas
Nothing says “remote luxury resort” quite like a private island. And you’ll find plenty of them in the Bahamas. But very few come close to Kamalame’s beauty and glamour. Swaying palm trees, flowering tropical gardens and 3 miles of deserted white sandy beach are just some of the many details of this special place. And don’t forget to enjoy the overwater spa for a truly relaxing getaway.
Amangiri, Canyon Point, Utah, USA
Remote resorts aren’t only found on private beaches or lost tropical islands. Out in the American Wild West is where you will find one of the world’s most secluded hotels. Amangiri is a remote luxury resort set on a 60-acre field tucked away in a rock valley in the desert of Utah. It’s so remote, many celebrity A-listers like Katy Perry choose to get away from it all right here. To get here, you’ll have to fly into St. George Municipal Airport and then endure a 2.5 hour drive.
