There are many facets of travel, from landscapes to sights, from food to activities. Sometimes, though, the accommodation itself is the star. There are hotel stays, and then there are extraordinary hotel stays… From igloos to hobbit houses, cave hotels and tree houses, here are our favourite quirky accommodations we think are a must in the life of a traveller…
Aurora dancing over the Glass Igloos in Lapland, Finland
A Lord of the Rings fantasy in Matamata, New Zeeland
A “cool” night in a cozy room at the Balea Ice Hotel, Romania
Hanging over the edge in the Andes in Cusco, Peru
Sleeping under the sea at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort
What can be more quirky than a night in a cave hotel, combined with a romantic hot air balloon ride?! Cappadocia, Turkey
Sleeping like Bedouins under the starry Saharan sky in the desert camp, Morocco
Can’t get closer to nature than spending time in a treehouse at Les Cabanes de Labrousse, France
Sleep in the middle of the ocean on a former oil rig, Seaventure Dive Resort, Malaysia.
We saved the best for last. Feel like a prisoner and spend the night in this former prison in Southland, New Zeeland. Don’t worry, you can leave at anytime.
If you are interested in spending a night, or maybe two, in one of these out of the pattern hotels, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
