The Eco Lodge at Siwa, Egypt’s Adrére Amellal, is quite literally a hidden gem, as it’s built right into the base of the White Mountain. In fact, it’s easy to miss because it blends right into the mystical rock formation. The Eco Lodge is devoid of electricity and room service—for a good reason. To preserve the city’s natural beauty.

Part of the Relais & Châteaux brand, Les Hautes Roches is as much a part of the Loire Valley as the trees. A former estate built in the 18th-century, the 14-room hotel is nestled within the cliffs.
