Tired of the usual 2 double beds, minibar, and third-floor parking lot view? Sick of the check in, check out, breakfast is served before 10, pool closes at 11 type of hotel?
If this sounds like hell to you, don’t throw out travel altogether. You might just need a new point of view. Here are 5 unique hotels that definitely won’t put you to sleep.
1. Skylodge Adventure Suites
Located 90 minutes north of Cusco in the Peruvian Andes, Skylodge Adventure Suites is like nothing you’ve seen before. First, you’ll climb 400 meters to your room.
You’ll stay in a completely transparent hanging bedroom, with amazing 300-degree views of the Sacred Valley.
Each suite comes with 4 beds, a dining area, and a private bathroom.
Zipline down in the morning for the full experience.
2. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort
Most hotels have the Northern Lights, Igloos, ice plunges, and dogsledding, so Kakslauttanen shouldn’t be much different than what you’re already used to…right? A stay here is the experience of a lifetime. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is located in Finland and is constantly rated as one of the best places in the world to see the Aurora Borealis.
Stay between August and April for a fantastic show.
Choose to sleep in a glass igloo pictured above, or the real thing pictured below, if you’re really adventurous.
3. Giraffe Manor
This boutique hotel in Nairobi, Kenya is situated on 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb. The building itself dates back to the 1930s and is full of charm, but what makes the manor truly unique is the other guests on the property.
The giraffes visit every morning and evening and can be fed from either floor. It’s an amazing experience.
4. Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren
Do you love wine? Do you love wine so much that you want to sleep in a wine barrel?
If so, we have good news. This hotel in the Netherlands has created a hotel experience that pays homage to four massive, old wine casks, allowing you to get a good night’s sleep amongst the tannins. It’s one of the cheaper hotels on the list, you can snag a room for under $100 a night.
5. Utter Inn
Scandinavia sure has a lot of interesting hotels to choose from. At the Utter Inn, there’s no need to choose between above and below the water. Both are options.
This little inn features an underwater bedroom below the surface – just climb down these trusty stairs.
It might not be the height of luxury, but it’s definitely unique. You won’t forget your stay at the Utter Inn!
