There are some places that, once you see them, all you can think to yourself is, “I have to go there, and *soon*.” The *National Geographic* Unique Lodges of the World are all places like that. In other words, prepare yourself to have some *serious* travel envy. Since documenting the world’s beautiful lodges and getaways, National Geographic has expanded from 24 to 45 lodges around the world, and the list keeps growing. They’re selected for the experiences offered, the amazing service, and commitment to sustainability — you won’t see any energy-guzzling mega hotels on this list. See a few of the chosen locations below, but be warned: After seeing this list, you’re going to want to schedule a vacation immediately.
