SHINTA MANI WILD

Sit­u­ated at a val­ley be­tween the Bokor and Kirirom na­tional parks in Cam­bo­dia, Shinta Mani Wild is a na­ture con­ser­va­tion project as well as a lux­ury camp ex­pe­ri­ence de­signed with min­i­mal in­ter­fer­ence to its sur­round­ings. Open­ing later this year, the prop­erty fea­tures 16 cus­tom-built tents perched above the es­tu­ar­ies, with the site a short dis­tance from the glo­ri­ous wa­ter­falls; pri­vate ex­pe­di­tion boats will take guests along the river to ex­plore the di­verse wildlife and beauty of the rain­for­est. shin­ta­mani.com/wild.php

ROSEWOOD LUANG PRABANG

Imag­ined as the grand hill­top home of a gra­cious French host, the prop­erty ap­pears to float above a canopy of trees and is ad­ja­cent to a wa­ter­fall. Com­pris­ing 23 vil­las, suites, tented ac­com­mo­da­tion and guest rooms, the de­sign of each ac­com­mo­da­tion is unique with French-in­do­chine ac­cents; an ar­ray of an­tiques, found ob­jects and arte­facts pay trib­ute to its lo­ca­tion within the his­toric city of Luang Prabang in Laos. rose­wood­ho­tels. com/en/luang-prabang

CAPELLA UBUD

This tent-style sanc­tu­ary over­looks the serene paddy fields and rain­for­est of Ubud, Bali, con­vey­ing an air of lux­ury with mod­ern com­forts and its colo­nial­style decor in­spi­ra­tion. Each of the 23 ac­com­mo­da­tion has been dec­o­rated to match a fic­tional cast of early ex­plor­ers, which in­clude a nat­u­ral­ist, car­tog­ra­pher, painter, ar­chi­tect and even a princess. Tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese carved doors and other hand-crafted pieces by lo­cal ar­ti­sans com­plete the tableau. capel­laubud.com
