Topas Ecolodge, Sapa - first position in National Geographic’s rank
National Geographic has ranked the Topas Ecolodge the first lodge in the list of 21 places to stay if you care about the planet.
Topas Ecolodge in Sapa, Vietnam.

Six Senses Zil Pasyon.
Created with the renowned Six Senses flair, the resort in Seychelles is a very personal destination that embraces nature while offering every creature comfort. Its 30 pool villas offer an oasis of serenity encircled by the Indian Ocean.
Sápmi Nature Camp.
The camp consists of newly built ‘double’ rooms in the form of lavvu tents (that looks like a tepee) furnished with comfortable double beds, stoves and cosy furnishings inspired by nature and the Sami culture.
Sápmi Nature Camp is operated by Lennart Pittja who grew up in a reindeer herding family here in Unna Tjerusj Sami community. This is grazing land that has been used by Unna Tjerusj for thousands of years. Sápmi Nature is committed to responsible tourism that does not threaten the reindeer and the herding here, but instead we want to share our knowledge about Sami life – both past and present.
Because this is a small-scale, sustainable business, it is only between 2-10 guests here at the same time. This is far from a large-scale resort or impersonal mass tourism. It is personal, comfortable and convenient Sámi experience and you have the chance to really learn about the Sami culture.
The 4th place is Coral Caye in Belize. Eight miles offshore from Turtle Inn, the loveliest hotel on the Placencia peninsula in southern Belize, lies Coral Caye, a two-acre jungle-cloaked Caribbean islet protected by a vast reef, where whale sharks congregate at full moon between April and June.
The largest, known as the Great House is essentially a thatched, sand-floored living space, furnished with daybeds (on which extra guests can stay), comfortable chairs, a large dining table and a full bar, and equipped with a kitchen, WC and various games, even a dartboard, drum kit and guitar, lest you're unlucky with the weather.
Typically Caribbean in style, Coral Cottage, the newer of the two, has sea-green clapboard walls, a zinc roof, a large veranda and, with a kingsize bed, sofa bed, proper bathroom with hot and cold running water and indoor and outdoor showers, is the more luxuriously appointed of the two.
Other place including Lapa Rios in Costa Rica, The Brando in French Polynesia, Duba Expedition Camp, Jetwing Vil Uyana in Sri Lanka, Tsara Komba Lodge, Prince of Wales's Guesthouse in rural Transylvania…
