Those for whom a destination’s coolness quotient falls squarely under the “Couldn’t Care Less” heading might appreciate the American West with its perennially appealing assets of space, clean air and majestic nature.
In Montana, all are exploited to the fullest at The Ranch at Rock Creek (www.theranchatrockcreek.com; from $825 per person sharing, full board), which takes the US’s “glamping” phenomenon to new-heights luxury. Opt for the comforts of the lodge – complete with a full-service spa – or the tents (white-canvas pavilions with hardwood floors, fireplaces and vast four-poster beds). Guests can pursue archery, river rafting, fly fishing and trail riding on the 6,000 pristine acres surrounding the ranch.
