The most remote hotels in the world including a surprising one in the Scottish Highlands – The Sun

SOME of the most remote hotels in the world offer those looking for a place to escape somewhere truly "off-the-beaten-track".

Many of them are miles from the nearest town or city, and are far from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

They can be found camouflaging in the desert or tucked into the mountains, far from civilisation.

While most of them are located a few hours' drive from local towns or cities, some require a private plane to get to.

It means fewer amenities in some cases but it also means uninterrupted views of nature.

From Scotland to Antarctica, here are the best secluded hotels across the globe.

1. Awasi Patagonia, Chile

Awasi Patagonia is located in the Torres del Paine National Park in a private reserve.

Each of the villas are made with wood from the area, inspired by outposts and Patagonian shelters.

With little Wifi, the main areas come with just a wood burning stove, hot tubs and a restaurant to keep you entertained.

Rooms start from £685 ($896) per person, per night.

2. Fogo Island Inn, Canada

Fogo Island Inn calls itself an "island on an island at one of the four corners of the Earth."

The 29 guest rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the ocean in Newfoundland in Canada.

Outdoor adventurers will love the vast landscape, with stargazing, snowmobiling, nature hikes and whale-watching some of the activities available.

Rooms start from £1,155 ($883) per night.

3. Ultima Thule Lodge, Alaska

Ultima Thule Lodge lies deep in the Alaskan bush – where there are no roads or trails and everything built came from shops over 350 miles away.

It isn't easy to get there, with flights to Anchorage the main route before getting a seat on a chartered flight to McCarthy.

Stays are only available from May to September but they offer activities around the Wrangell/St. Elias Mountains – by plane of course.

Rooms start from £6,514 ($8,522) per person per night with some of the activities included.

4. Qasr Al Sarab, United Arab Emirates

Located 90 minutes from Abu Dhabi, the Qasr Al Sarab resort is in the largest sand desert in the region, the Empty Quarter.

While the hotel itself is secluded from modern life, the 140-room property still offers plenty of activities for guests, from sunrise yoga to biking on the sand.

At 7am, you can watch the sun rise over the dunes- or stay in bed for uninterrupted views of the desert.

Rooms start from £227 ($297) per night.

5. The Torridon, Scotland

The UK has its own remote hotel – The Torridon – located in the Scottish mountains.

Set on 58 acres of land at the end of Loch Torridon, it offers the best views of the Highlands.

The area is perfect for stargazers, with clear skies and little light pollution, and car enthusiasts, who can even hire a Morgan car to drive around the North Coast 500 route.

Rooms start from £185 ($242) per night.

6. Three Camel Lodge, Mongolia

The Mongolian Three Camel Lodge claims to be a "luxurious take on the traditional nomadic lifestyle".

Many of the staff were raised in the Gobi desert where the eco-lodge is located, an hour and a half from Dalanzadgad by dirt track.

The hotel offers plenty of excursions, such as exploring the Gobi desert, or searching for dragons and eagles in west Mongolia.

Rooms start from £429 ($561) per night.

7. Whichaway Camp, Antarctica

One of the most exclusive destinations in the world, Whichaway Camp is only accessible by private charter flight.

Only 12 guests can stay at a time in the two-man pods where you can explore ice caves, observe penguins and learn how to be an explorer.

The only catch – you can only stay as part of a tour package, which do not come cheap.

Prices start from £29,500 ($38,594) for a four-day tour.

8. Hotel Eolo, Argentina

Hotel Eolo is in the middle of nowhere, on 10,000 acres of land that's perfect for mountain biking, horse riding or trekking.

Thankfully it isn't hard to get to, as it is just 30 minutes from the town of El Calafate.

The 17-room hotel makes the most of the vast scenery, with huge wall-sized windows throughout the building.

Rooms start from £760 ($994) per night.

9. Skylodge Adventure Suites, Peru

If you're scared of heights then the Skylodge Adventure Suites in Peru are not for you.
The three pods are 400m (1,312ft) up Via Ferrata, in the Sacred Valley of Cuzco, which you will need to hike up or travel to by ziplines.

Once you're up there, you get a breakfast and gourmet dinner and wine included, with the best views of the valley.

Rooms start from £440 ($576) per night.

10. Deplar Farm, Iceland

While you can't book just a night at Deplar Farm, the activities included in the lodge will make the stay worth it.

The hotel, which used to be a farm, includes guided activities, airport transfers, chef-prepared meals and all outdoor gear.

The remote area is perfect for watching the Northern Lights too, with little light pollution and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Prices start from £2,030 ($2,656) per night.
