Breathtaking Landscape Stays on Booking.com that Put You at One with Nature

March 1, 2021 OTA News No Comments Email Email

Has being confined to your home left you yearning to swap your everyday view for something more majestic? Does the prospect of waking up to an endless horizon of impossibly azure waters, imposing mountain peaks or rolling verdant hills inspire you to travel as soon as it is safe to do so? According to recent research undertaken by Booking.com across five markets in May 2020, nearly 1 in 3* (30%) respondents revealed they would be motivated to travel again so that they can experience nature. Seeking comfort and distraction during weeks in lock-down, the overwhelming majority (97%)** of travelers spent time looking for vacation inspiration, with a third (30%) looking at potential travel destinations as often as once a week

Booking.com presents five sensational stays that have been specially designed to make the most of their picturesque locations. From glass cabins to desert domes, these unique getaways magically merge with their surroundings and blend the borders between accommodation and nature. These breathtaking landscapes will be waiting to be discovered, once travel is back on the agenda.

Wadi Rum, Jordan

The barren wilderness of Wadi Rum is made up of craggy canyons and orange earth, so pockmarked and rugged that it resembles the surface of the moon. The best way to immerse yourself in these stunning surroundings is to stay in a geodesic dome at the base of one of the desert’s many dazzling rock formations. Sun City Camp is a great base to explore the otherworldly landscape of Wadi Rum. Their “Martian tent” will provide you with a unique camping experience and panoramic views that you’ll never forget.

Bois Chéri, Mauritius

Located at a historic and picturesque spot along the Mauritian Tea Route, Bubble Lodge Bois Chéri is a transparent oasis in the middle of a working tea estate. Surrounded by lush foliage, the bubble rooms are all decorated in earthy tones and natural fabrics. Whether gazing at the myriad of stars that are visible through the rain forest canopy or simply daydreaming amongst the leaves, every moment is a tranquil treat in the heart of this tropical paradise. Whilst you are there, you can also visit the nearby tea factory to learn everything about tea production in Mauritius and savor one of their delicious signature tea blends for yourself.

Baa Atoll, Maldives

For uninterrupted 180-degree views of sparkling turquoise water as far as the eye can see, the private villas at Milaidhoo Island Maldives are the stuff that dreams are made of. This boutique luxury escape even has its own coral reef and is located in a UNESCO-protected biosphere reserve. Bedecked with abundant tropical greenery, the island is fringed with wide, white sandy beaches with crystal-clear waters that are ideal for snorkeling and diving. Best of all, with the barefoot informality that you’re afforded at this secluded getaway, you can laze away the hours on your private sundeck waiting for one of many epic sunsets over the Indian Ocean that you’re sure to enjoy during your stay.

 Waipara, New Zealand

Magnificent conditions for stargazing and uninterrupted views of the pristine New Zealand countryside are waiting for you at Greystone PurePod, a luxury glass eco-cabin set high above a beautiful organic winery in the Waipara Valley. Made of heavy duty glass, this fully self-contained, solar-powered, environmentally sustainable holiday home enables you to enjoy awe-inspiring panoramas of the rural landscape from every direction, all from the comfort of your bed.

 Guilin, China

Known for its iconic limestone hills and winding waterways, Guilin is a magical, must-see area of the Guangxi region in southern China. With giant windows that provide floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding countryside, Heshe Hotel is a hidden gem. It’s also just steps away from one of the region’s most popular natural attractions, the Reed Flute Cave. At over 180 million years old, the stalagmites, stalactites and other rock formations in the cave have been attracting visitors for more than 1,200 years – at least according to the earliest inscriptions that still adorn its walls in ink.
