Back to Nature


In a world of continuously evolving gadgets, it’s easy to get caught up in the newest and latest and overlook life’s more simple pleasures.

Often, we miss the natural beauty that surrounds us and the happiness it can bring us while fully immersing ourselves in it. We forget the joy that sitting around a campfire under the stars brings, the peace that comes from sipping coffee beside a perfectly still lake, the adrenalin felt zipping overtop of the rainforest canopy, or the pure bliss of being the first set of tracks on fresh mountain powder. When you’re ready to break free from the daily grind and surround yourself with indescribable beauty, it’s time to get Back To Nature.

The hotels, lodges, and resorts featured in this collection are tucked into settings that are unrivaled in both their beauty and uniqueness. Each one embraces it surroundings, allowing you the vacationer to become fully engrossed in its stunning location.

For the vacationer who wants to dive into the best Mother Nature has to offer, while still being in the height of luxury, the Fairmont Hotels are ideal. Hiking to skiing, white water rafting to glacier trekking, these hotels offer it all, and at the end of the day they also offer casual elegance and gourmet dining. Those who want to truly unplug and leave the world behind will find inner peace in a small Mexican resort with unreliable WiFi and stunning ocean views. In the Caribbean there’s a retreat on a private island, and one on a secluded beach, while in Cozumel, an adventurous hideaway rests perfectly between the ocean and the jungle. And in Spain a cliff-side hotel is undeniably stunning.
