The National Geographic Society has announced its new Unique Lodges of the World hotel collection, which curates incredible properties in far-flung locations based on a few principles: sustainable practices, unique design, exceptional service, authentic experiences and heritage conservation. Though the list includes myriad styles of accommodation, from thatched bungalows to luxury tents, the selection process is rigorous. There are just 24 properties that have made the cut so far, including three in Asia: Sukau Rainforest Lodge in Borneo; Three Camel Lodge in Mongolia; and Zhiwa Ling Hotel in Bhutan. It’s not just about shortlisting unique experiences—it’s also about moving the future of travel in a more sustainable direction.
