Dunton Hot Springs
A Calamity Jane lookalike set of cabins that happens to be a luxury resort, Dunton Hot Springs comprises 12 all-inclusive log cabins dotted around a saloon in the Colorado Rockies. Located next to a hot spring, the unique dwellings have held on to their remote old-town charm. Whether horse riding or hiking, end your day in the cosy saloon, recounting tales of adventure over locally produced food and wine.
Insider tip: Take a dip in the mineral water up at the spring's source, instead of in the bathhouse, to experience nature at its wildest. From $600; duntonhotsprings.com
Treasure Beach, Jamaica
A beach resort but not as you
know it, Jakes is a small, carefree community of bright seafront cottages and villas on Jamaica's rugged Treasure Beach. Each delightfully named cottage (from Sweet Lip to Treasure Cot) has been designed by the Densham family, who have built up the boutique resort since the '40s. Named after the family parrot, Jakes offers a unique home-away-from-home vibe in the Caribbean.
Insider tip: Choose total seclusion with the new 1.5 acre Seaweed Luxury Villa and its surrounding sea views. One-of-a-kind exclusivity. From $315; jakeshotel.com
