On the shore of Chile's Lake Pehoé and the Cordillera Paine mountains, Explora Patagonia is pretty much the most photogenic hotel in the world. Plus, it's around 170 miles from the nearest city, so it's just you and this llama out there!

The Namib Desert is the type of place you run out of water after wandering aimlessly for three days on the back of a camel. But at the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge you're greeted with a luxurious oasis of fine dining and comfort. And no civilization for miles means you'll catch some of the clearest starry nights ever.

Remember that feeling of climbing a tree as a kid, with each tree branch taking you a little bit further from all the parents, teachers, and prepubescent problems of the day? Well, Sweden's Treehotel brings that feeling back with a touch of contemporary design and amenities. Also, without the sheer terror of realizing you're stuck in tree.

At the Lion Sands Game Reserve you're probably more likely to have a conversation with a large carnivorous cat than an actual person. It's perfect for those hoping to ditch the city for an authentic "Lion King" experience. Hakuna matata!

In the waters off the coast of east Africa is a floating hotel room where guests can literally sleep with the fishes. It's definitely not the fanciest room in the world, but worth the stay if hiding underwater characterizes your deep hatred for humanity.

Nestled against Switzerland's mount Bürgenstock is a 5-star hotel with a view to die for. Imagine yourself looking out over Lake Lucerne, drinking a Rivella and enjoying a nice cheese fondue–miles away from anybody who could possibly recognize your face. Now that's the life.

Why not just hop in your private helicopter and fly that bad boy to the remote Viceroy Hotel in Bali, Indonesia. There you'll find absolute serenity in their insane infinity pool–just don't swim near the edge!

Adrère Amellal is literally an oasis nestled within the hot Egyptian desert. Of course, don't expect electricity in a place as secluded as this. But isn't that a great excuse to avoid communicating with people!

Whitepod Hotel shacks you up in a giant golf ball overlooking Monthey, Switzerland below. From way up at 11,300 feet above sea level you can think to yourself, "look at all those fools down there, oblivious to the wonder and joy of my giant balls."

According to the resort, Amangiri actually translates into "peaceful valley" and is located on 600 protected acres of scenic Utah desert. There's nothing but sand and rocks as far as the eye can see. Also, this pretty epic swimming pool right in the middle!

The Fogo Island Inn is located in a quaint fishing village on an island off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. There's only 29 rooms here, each with their own ocean view. Totally worth the two-hour ferry ride to get there!

This is about as secluded as it gets. Located on a remote Seychelles island, Desroches Island Resort is a private paradise offering crystal blue waters, white sandy beaches, and oceanic views that will make you wish you never had to return to civilization.

Hotel Arctic is the world's most northernly 4-star hotel, offering breathtaking views of the frigid Arctic waters and fine Greenlandic cuisine. From a lovely park bench you can sit back and watch passing cruise ships navigate that mine field of icebergs. Fun!
