| April 14, 2011

With the Royal Wedding approaching and William and Kate’s honeymoon destination as yet unannounced, they will no doubt be looking to escape the paparazzi and enjoy some privacy. Our product team have come up with their suggestions for the ultimate wilderness destinations to escape it all, from the kingdom of Bhutan to the wilds of Namibia.

Quebrada de Cafayate, Salta

Estancia Colomé, Argentina
This beautifully secluded nine-suite boutique property sits in one of the highest wine estate in the world, four and a half hours from Salta. Owner, art-collector and winemaker Donald Hess has made this the perfect place to unwind in luxury. What is more, for those who want to pair their wine with art, Colomé also has its own contemporary art museum, featuring amazing light installation pieces by James Turrell. Whether you are looking to experience horse-riding, wine-tasting or pure relaxation, the elegant comfort of Colomé offers a superb escape.

Adrère Amellal, Egypt
This eco-lodge dramatically marooned in the Egyptian desert has no electricity, mud-brick rooms and the most spectacular views over shimmering Lake Siwa. The lodge has a royal past, with previous visitors including Charles and Camilla, and the deceptively palatial surroundings make for a perfect retreat.

Amankora, Bhutan
Amankora’s five boutique lodges mean that Himalayan adventures can now be combined with supreme comfort. The lodges have been located to create a circuit through Bhutan’s breathtakingly spectacular valleys, whilst experiencing this beautifully non-westernised culture. After a scenic trek from any one of these luxurious lodges, guests can sit back and relax in sumptuous surroundings, enjoy a hot stone bath or practise some yoga. 

Serra Cafema, Namibia
This camp is about as far away from civilisation as you can get, accessible only after a three-hour light aircraft trip from Windhoek. Accommodation at Serra Cafema consists of eight thatched riverside chalets, providing an unexpected oasis of luxury. Float down the Kunene river on one of the camp’s boat trips or take a wander through the mountain and river valleys.

Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island, Australia
Southern Ocean Lodge perches high above Hanson Bay, its stylish eco-friendly interiors contrasting wonderfully with Kangaroo Island’s remote bush environment. Often referred to as Australia’s answer to the Galapagos, here you can find koalas, kangaroos, Tamar wallabies, sea lions and much more.
