Though relatively new, eco lodges are getting increasingly popular with travelers, especially those who are concerned about the future of our planet. Nestled in some of the most remote areas, however, the majority of eco lodges aren’t lacking any modern conveniences. On the contrary, they are a perfect blend of wilderness and comfort, providing their guests a unique opportunity to experience the nature in its purest form without giving up the comforts of the civilization. This and their remote location providing unique fishing opportunities also makes them a popular alternative to the conventional coastal fishing resorts.
Listed below are five of some of the most exotic eco lodges in the world which also provide an unforgettable fishing experience:

Nestled in amongst 550 acres of virgin forest next to the Indian Ocean, this small yet luxurious eco resort will bring you in tune with the natural world. Limited to only 12 private villas, a restaurant and spa, you will have plenty of time to explore the natural beauty that surrounds you, or relax and recharge without the bustle of everyday life. Due to it’s isolated location in southern Indonesia, much of the traditional Sumbanese culture has been preserved, including the religion, traditional lifestyle and language – making it the perfect spot to explore a new culture too.
