Become one with nature without the sleeping bag and cold showers at these top ecolodges

From a few early outposts sporting canvas walls and raised wooden walkways, ecolodges now span the globe and all manner of styles. Remote off-the-grid mountain bungalow offer the adventurer a true back-to-the-land encounter, while oceanfront villas of recycled wood make use of organic cotton sheets and the latest green technologies for the sybarite. One day there may be no need to put “eco” in front of “lodges”-helping to protect threatened habitats, support cultural heritage, and improve local livelihood will be expected of any travelers’ rest, along with a room with a view and a comfortable bed. Until then, these 25 retreats set themselves apart by delivering authenticity and sustainability in nature’s most spectacular settings.
