Since the late 1880s,
National Geographic has made a name for itself by seeking out discoveries in the far corners of the world. So it makes sense that it would create
National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, a network of properties that brings the brand's mission to life. “These lodges share the Society’s vision of preserving the planet for future generations and they demonstrate that sustainability and a world-class guest experience can go hand-in-hand,” says Lynn Cutter, executive vice president, Travel and Licensing for National Geographic.
The two dozen hotels in the portfolio were vetted by National Geographic and must adhere to a rigorous set of criteria, including sustainable tourism and preservation of cultural heritage.
Here's a look at some of the extraordinary properties in the collection,
from a tiny island hotel
in Canada that celebrates the local fishing culture to a Santorini resort that
couldn't be anywhere else on the planet.
