When you really want to get away

Every four- and five-star hotel should have upscale amenities and a sense of style, but not every guest agrees about what constitutes a five-star location. For some, "luxury" means getting away from the crowd of tourists that may populate beachfront or downtown hotel options.

Some of the world's most interesting hotels are located in out-of-the-way locations, like Hotel Arctic in Greeland which has "igloo cottages" in addition to luxurious rooms. These places have solitude and uninterrupted views. For people who want a dose of nature along with their pampering, these 10 remote hotels are more than ideal.
