5 of the best... Mouth-watering hotels
Our team of experts here at Cox & Kings has come up with five places to stay that are all full of flavour…
Sausage Tree Camp, Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
There are few hotels with names as quirky as Zambia’s very own Sausage Tree Camp. However, it is not only the name of this lodge that is memorable, its beautiful position overlooking the Zambezi’s floodplains has a lot to do with it. Sleeping only 16 guests in seven elaborate tents, guests can expect both a stylish and comfortable stay. Sausage Tree has many activities on offer, including boat trips, canoe safaris, wildlife drives and fishing. What’s more, elephants and other animals can often be seen wandering around the camp, allowing guests to experience the true spirit of Zambia without having to venture far from their luxurious surroundings.
Tamarind Village, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Tamarind Village is a charming boutique hotel sitting quietly amid the bustle of colourful bazaars and ornate temples of Chiang Mai. The hotel is aptly named after the impressive 200-year-old tamarind tree towering in its beautiful network of gardens. Tamarind Village offers guests an interesting insight into northern Thai culture through regular exhibitions, neighbourhood walks and outings to witness the local Buddhist monks receiving alms. An intimate, serene and relaxing retreat, Tamarind Village is the perfect base for exploring Chiang Mai and the surrounding area.
Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge, Tasmania
Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge can be found on the edge of the world-heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, against the backdrop of majestic mountains. The cosy timber cabins are hidden away in the forest, with open fires and no telephones or televisions. There are plenty of things to do here: embrace the great outdoors along one of the many walking trails around the lodge to see wallabies, wombats and more, or relax with a massage and simply enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Coconut Lagoon, Kumarakom, Kerala, India
Coconut Lagoon is an assortment of eco-friendly cottages situated in the heart of the Keralan backwaters on the shores of Lake Vembanad. Adding to the character of this old coconut plantation is the fact it is only accessible by boat through a narrow network of canals. Take a wildlife-watching trip, settle down on Coconut Lagoon itself, have an Ayurvedic spa treatment or relax by the picturesque pool. A mixture of rustic and modern, a stay at Coconut Lagoon offers complete escapism.
Villa des Orangers, Marrakech, Morocco
At the end of an avenue of orange trees, just 400 metres from Marrackech’s famous Djemma el Fna, is Villa des Orangers. A member of the Relais & Chateaux hotel group, this beautifully converted riad (formerly a judge’s house) acts as the perfect base to explore the city. The 27 rooms and suites are all lavishly decorated, providing a welcome respite from the chaos outside. Some of the rooms have their own private roof terraces; otherwise the communal terrace has its own small pool and offers superb views over the Koutoubia mosque and as far away as the Atlas mountains.
