Daintree Ecolodge and Spa, Australia
One of the most acclaimed ecoresorts in the world, Daintree Ecolodge and Spa in exotic Queensland, Australia has been blending Aboriginal traditions and modern wellness techniques since 1995. Spa treatments favor local and organic plants and are approved by local Kuku Yalanji elders. The lodge started the Karrba (Healing) Foundation, which supports the health, education and well-being of Aboriginal people, many of whom are also employed by the destination.
Daintree's treehouse-like villas are perched in the world's oldest living rainforest, at the point where two World Heritage National Parks meet (the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree). Guests stroll through the thriving canopy on wooden paths, getting an intimate look at the primeval forest.
