Best Nature Hotels

Nature hotels, as the name suggests are lodgings surrounded by natural beauty. Set on the outskirts of the city these hotels are cut off from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Nature hotels adopt a unique eco-friendly method of sustenance that reduces their dependence on the environment. These hotels are built on the principle of green living (i.e. no adverse impact on the environments) and have to be certified by some third party organization of the state. Located in jungles, these hotels are completely camouflaged by their surroundings. If you are a nature lover, then these hotels are just the place you want to be on vacation.

All About Nature Hotels

Do you dream of escaping the din and chaos of your routine life and reconnect with nature? Nature Hotels convert this dream into reality. Also known as Eco Hotels, these lodgings are usually set in some forest or on the top of the hill where guests can enjoy the diverse flora and fauna of the country. These sustainable natural resorts combine the best of the raw, primitive power of nature and human-made luxuries offering tourists an unforgettable experience. Away from civilization and surrounded by wilderness, these hotels offer you limitless opportunities to explore the many sights and sounds of nature.

For instance, hotel owners are developing new properties from tropical hardwood and local stone to cater to the environment policies laid down by the state.

Set amongst hills, forests and trees, these nature hotels offer guests a memorable opportunity to experience mother earth in its bloom.
