4. MALIKHA LODGE, BURMA
In far northern Burma, surrounded by high peaks, hidden in subtropical rainforest and perched above the Nam Lang River, adventure and luxury meet at Malikha Lodge. Hidden between towering bamboo and spacious bungalows made from local materials are private and warm handcrafted teak tubs and personal fireplaces, which nurture the senses. Adventure can be had at all levels and guests may opt to stay local and experience the thrill of tailored mountain biking excursions, white water rafting, river cruises, and jungle trekking by foot or atop an elephant. For the more adventurous, multi-day trekking trips into remote areas can be arranged where porters and ample tents provide the creature comforts despite being deep in the mountains. Weary muscles are soothed at the Spa Bungalow where the signature treatment uses herbal oils made on-site in combination with selected local river stones for a heavenly Hot Stone Treatment.
