If you are looking to escape you can use my listing of 10 best luxury wilderness retreats in the world to inspire you. Each retreat is ultra-luxury and far from civilisation. Yes some veer rather to closely to glamping, but if sleeping under canvas is in a Four Seasons level of luxury and enables you to enjoy wild elephants, trust me, it is worth doing.

I am in love with the luxury wilderness lodge of the Sal Salis set in the dunes which border the beach and the Ningaloo reef. Enjoy a red kangaroo grazing amongst the dunes or a humpback whale breaching just beyond the reef. Before breakfast, pop on your snorkel gear and paddle into a world of reef sharks, turtles clownfish, manta rays and dolphins.

Amangiri is also a favourite in Utah in the United States. Desert escapes don’t get better than this. if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to this, you should try Under Canvas in or beside one of the American national parks.

Lizard Island is a dream come true with Crusoe-esque stretches of beach and deep blue ocean fringing this reef encircle the island. Here, you can explore the Great Barrier Reef straight from the shore.

Adventure through rainforest, across beaches, over deserts or up mountains. Sleep under a limitless expanse of the night sky, far away from the hustle and bustle of the big city life. Explore nature’s architecture, scintillating waterfalls and vertigo-inducing cliffs, and watching wildlife roam freely, as it always had. And now imagine that you can do all that without giving up the small luxuries. These spectacular and remote destinations will immerse you in nature, wildlife and in absolute luxury.
