Four Rivers Floating Lodge Cambodia

National Geographic Traveller UK has released its annual edition of luxury travel for 2013, with addresses of top hideaways across Latin America, extravagant rail journeys and exclusive wilderness lodges around the world.

Luxury travel ideas spanning the globe fill up 180 pages, including a cover story that asked travel writers to pair up 22 contrasting retreats like high-tech to off-grid lodging and urban versus wilderness accommodations.

Juxtaposing ‘air’ versus ‘earth,’ for instance, is a luxury “cowboy-meets-Heidi” hotel in the French Alps, Le Lodge Park in Megeve, set against a tent experience in the jungles of Cambodia, Four Rivers Floating Lodge. Cities profiled include Dubai, Positano on Italy’s Amalfi coast, London and Las Vegas.

Other travel ideas include stays at hotels branded by luxury fashion labels, precious-stone spa treatments and culinary escapes for gastronomes.

Vina Tarapaca, in Chile, for instance, is described as the most luxurious and extravagant wine hotel in South America, set within an estate that includes a 1920s mansion, golf course and pool.

National Geographic Traveller UK is on newsstands now. A preview can also be seen here.
