Have you ever wondered where you could stay and have a unique experience? Have you ever thought about how far people's imagination and creativity can go? We will intrigue your mind by presenting our top ten most unusual hotels.
10. Silvermine Hotel
How does it sound to sleep at 155 meters below the ground? Yet, that's possible in the Sala Silvermine Suite in Sweden! This unforgettable hotel is built in an old silver mine, Sweden's largest and most important one. Although the average temperature is around three degrees celsius, the suite is located in a hot pocket with a temperature of 18 degrees.
Sala Silvermine was handmade during silver mining from the 16th until the 19th century. The silence in the luxuriously equipped suite can be scary, but luckily, there's an intercom to contact the friendly staff.
9. Rainforest Hotels
It would be a mistake to leave out the one in the mighty Amazon while writing about rainforest hotels. The Amazon Jungle Palace is just 30 minutes from Manaus in Brazil and offers five-star luxury.
This is a floating, eco-friendly hotel surrounded by flora and fauna, so you can fish for piranhas or swim with pink dolphins, among other unique adventures. The hotel offers accommodation with amazing views of Rio Negro and Lago Salvador.
8. Salt Hotel
This might sound strange, but Palacio de Sal in Bolivia is the world's first luxury salt hotel. Built on the majestic banks of Salar de Uyuni, it was constructed entirely from salt, so no wonder it looks weird. The hotel has 42 guest rooms in an igloo-like shape, with a private bathroom in every accommodation.
Try some tasty food in the hotel's restaurant, and for total relaxation, there is a spa with a fitness center, sauna, and swimming pool. Thus, you have everything you need to feel better.
7. Desert Hotels
When you think of Middle East countries, you probably have a desert on your mind. Still, as we also know, the United Arab Emirates is lately going beyond every possible limit regarding luxury hotels and resorts in strange places.
One of those places is Al Maha, A Luxury Collection Desert Resort and Spa. This Resort was built in the desert, 45 minutes drive from Dubai. It is in a private oasis in the middle of the desert, surrounded by lush palm groves, emerald canopies, and iconic sand dunes. Accommodation is offered in 42 suites. The desert can be explored during a safari, a horse ride, a camel trek, or a nature walk.
6. Skyscrapers Hotels
Situated at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, this unforgettable hotel consists of three towers with a Skypark on top, with the world's highest infinity swimming pool 191 meters above the ground. This hotel has a lot, and we mean A LOT, to offer.
You can enjoy the beautiful Sands SkyPark Observation Deck view, gamble in a hotel's casino, or relax in Banyan Tree Spa. Don't miss fine dining at one of many restaurants featuring famous celebrity chefs, the ArtScience Museum, a theater with Broadway shows, a shopping mall with designer stores, and more.
5. Igloo Hotels
Although there are various igloo hotels, we've chosen this luxury 5* hotel Levin Iglut. You might disagree regarding these glass igloos in Finland since they should be made of snow. Still, they have a unique advantage, as you can have an unobstructed view of the northern sky.
With some luck, you can enjoy the Northern Lights from a comfy bed, as an unusual tourist attraction. Each Igloo has its private bathroom and offers hospitality like every high-regarded luxury hotel. Staying in this place under the Arctic sky is a unique experience.
4. Ice Hotels
Ice hotels offer unforgettable times, but only for those not afraid of a bit or, frankly, a lot of cold, such as minus five degrees Celsius. Still interested? Ok, then let's go to Sweden and the Icehotel! The hotel offers icy and warm rooms, but if you decide to go there, it would be a shame not to stay in an ice room. There you can sleep on a bed made of frozen water while covered with a thermal sleeping bag made of reindeer hides.
Alternatively, choose an art suite with hand-carved ice furnishings made by international artists. The hotel serves delicious food in a highly-ranked restaurant. One of the attractions is the Icebar, with a floor made of snow. Enjoy yourself while drinking your favorite beverage from a glass made of ice. Staying in an Icehotel, sleeping on a bed of ice, and drinking from icy glasses is a memory of a lifetime.
3. Underwater Hotels
Let's get warm after the ice hotel as we introduce the ones where you can sleep underwater and watch sea life from your bed. Come with us to the sunny Maldives and The Muraka - part of the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort.
This place offers a unique luxury experience in a two-level residence with a master bedroom located 16 feet below sea level. The Muraka also provides dining in the world's first undersea restaurant, five meters below the surface, with panoramic coral garden views and delicious food. There's nothing like underwater hotels, but they remain rare.
2. Cave Hotels
From under the sea, we are going into the caves! We are moving to Cappadocia, Turkey, and the beautiful Yunak Evleri hotel. This is a unique cave hotel carved into a mountain cliff. About 1500 years old, caves were renovated and decorated while strictly respecting the local character.
The hotel's main lobby is housed in a 19th-century Greek mansion. It offers fabulous views with excellent dining options in a restaurant with a terrace, a superb spa, and two swimming pools.
1. Treehouse Hotels
Have you ever dreamed of returning to your childhood and playing at your sanctuary, your own treehouse? If you hadn't had one as a child, you have wished for it at least once. Therefore, we'll introduce you to Treehouse Lodge, located and surrounded by Amazon Rainforest in Peru. The nearest town is Iquitos, and you can get there only by plane or boat. After that, it will take you two and a half hours to arrive at this magical place, first by car and then by boat.
Located at the beginning of the mighty Amazon River, it will sweep you off your feet with its wildlife diversity, including the stoned jaguars. Although, it can be a bit scary waking up to the sound of monkeys. The lodge has 12 treehouses to accommodate the guests, surrounded by jungle vegetation and connected by steel cable pedestrian bridges. More than 30 feet above the ground, every treehouse is equipped with a private bathroom. This eco-friendly lodge serves 3 delicious meals made in Peruvian style to their guests.
