Welcome to the jungle.

If I ran with Guns n’ Roses’ understanding of the theme, this week’s stays would be limited to depravity-laden Vegas hotel rooms.

Thankfully, we’re focusing less on the Rock n’ Roll lifestyle and more on stunning rainforest retreats designed to set your travel tingles alight.

Here are the best jungle stays on the planet.

Our top picks: Rainforest Retreats

Sri Lanka might be a little off the beaten path for many. But those who have been will tell you how beautiful a country awaits you. Aarunya Nature Resort ensures you always remember just how astonishing the place is, thanks to the breathtaking views from each of its private villas.

Each villa has a four-poster bed, a private jacuzzi, and even outdoor plunge pools to take in the UNESCO world heritage site, the Knuckles Mountain Range, expanding below you. Unforgettable.

Exploring the jungle seems like a good idea until you wake up with a nightmare demon bug in your hair. Mashpi solves that problem for you.

Nestled in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest, Mashpi Lodge is as much an experience as a stay. The lodge has a range of activities that come as part of any stay. With sixteen experiences on offer, from mountain hikes to research lab visits, you will be fully immersed in the ecosystem.

But fear not. When you’re finished with a long day’s exploration, you can retreat to your stunning guestroom, with views of the Cloud Forest, excellent food on-site, and spa treatments to help you recuperate.
