With a world full of alluring destinations, it might be hard to narrow down where to go. Plus, when it comes to figuring out where to stay when on vacation, sometimes a military-associated lodge isn’t at the top of what one considers luxury. In reality, there are premium accommodations specifically for military families that don’t cost five star price tags. These are our top six lodges around the world that we think everyone should try and visit:
1. Edelweiss Lodge and Resort in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany
This mountain resort located in the heart of the Bavarian Alps has 258 rooms and suites, vacation cabins, a campground and several dog-friendly accommodations. Edelweiss is located at the foot of Germany’s highest mountain, Zugspitze, and delivers on epic mountain views and adventures year-round.
2. Dragon Hill Lodge in Seoul, South Korea
Even before the 2018 Winter Olympics, Seoul was on the rise as a popular tourist destination that allures tourists to its traditional Korean neighborhoods, skincare shopping and colorful temples galore. Dragon Hill is located in the heart of downtown Seoul and offers in-house dining experiences, concierge services, a basketball court and a 2,000 square foot playground.
3. Hale Koa Hotel in Fort DeRussy, Hawaii
Anyone’s tropical vacation dreams can come true if one is lucky enough to snag a room at the beachside hotel within the bustling Waikīkī neighborhood of Honolulu. According to its website, the resort gardens throughout the property are sustainably maintained in homage to Hawaiian royalty, which makes guests feel like royalty themselves as they sip tropical drinks at an open air restaurant with nearby palm trees swaying in the ocean breeze.
4. The New Sanno in Tokyo, Japan
Centrally located in Tokyo within walking distance to the Tokyo Tower and a quick train ride to Shinjuku station, the New Sanno is a gem that provides luxurious amenities at a price that cannot be rivaled at other civilian lodgings. The in-house dining options will make it hard to want to leave the premises, especially in addition to the swimming pool and shopping centers located within.
5. Okuma Beach Resort in Okinawa, Japan
Imagine staying at a rustic cottage with a deck jutting out onto a private beach with calm, turquoise, tropical waters lapping upon a sandy shore. Okuma offers a variety of these lodgings ranging in buildings that sleep from two to 10 guests. Add the Sunset Cafe, a nine-hole golf resort and a campground, this is a destination to strive to visit.
6. Ft. Leonard Wood Lake of the Ozarks Recreation Area in Linn Creek, MO
Lake of the Ozarks has 1,150 areas of shoreline and reaches 92 miles in length. During the summer months, people flock to the area to camp, fish, golf, boat, lounge beachside and hike through the surrounding rolling hills. LORA also provides its guests with easy access to all the fun activities to be had in the area, with lodging that includes campsites, pet-friendly cabins and barracks.Read comments
