National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World is more than a selection of world-class hotels, it is a collection of rare experiences, offering guests intimate encounters with parts of the world not many get to know—and the chance to slow down and truly discover them. Each lodge is deeply rooted in its community and dedicated to protecting the surrounding habitats and cultures—and harnessing their magic to safeguard them for the future. Start exploring our Lodges now.

Each of our lodges has created a special complimentary experience—a private snorkeling excursion with an expert diver, for example, or an intimate meal in an enchanting setting—that’s offered only to guests who book through National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World.
