Shakti 360 Leti, India

Set in the remote Kumaon region of the Himalayas, this exquisite hideaway is the perfect escape from day-to-day life without sacrificing any element of comfort or luxury. Perched on top of an 8,000 foot mountain, visitors can expect to achieve a peaceful and serene state of mind just by observing the beauty of the surroundings through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The outdoor environment offers an endless supply of activities including hiking, fishing, yoga and meditation. Indoors there is a great deal to experience as well; gourmet cooking, fine wine, fireplaces and pashmina blankets to curl up with at night.

Hotel Remota, Chile

Nestled in Chilean Patagonia, Hotel Remota is a blend of traditional Patagonian lifestyle and modern luxury amenities. The unique architecture pays homage to hacienda designs, but inside no accommodations are spared to ensure that visitors can have an authentic and enjoyable experience. The design and environment encourages meditation, reflection and adventure. Hotel Remota’s mission statement reads “all is made to lead a life in Patagonia just as it should be, but this time not in a shearing house, but in a[n] enjoyable and luxurious one.” The all-glass exterior is truly breathtaking and allows for none of Patagonia’s beauty to go unappreciated.
