After one has been traveling for a while, every hotel begins to look the same. We have all heard of Ice Hotels and Sand Hotels, themed hotels with Arabian or Spaceship setups, but there’s more! Get ready to infuse some excitement and whimsy in your trips with these astonishing, unusual lodgings.
Golden Crown Levin Iglut, Finland
Stay in one of the incredible 18 glass igloos at this exclusive hotel in Finnish laplands and brave freezing temperatures to marvel at the northern lights or enjoy star gazing from an outdoor hot tub. With a gorgeous view of the rugged winter landscape, unique accommodation, and personalized service, this hotel is one of the top contenders for adventurous offbeat travel.
Kokopelli’s Cave, New Mexico USA
Kokopelli’s Cave is a remote, multiroom bed-and-breakfast overlooking the beautiful La Plata River Valley. It is built into vertical sandstone cliffs and the cave room itself is 70′ below the surface. While the cave consists of all modern amenities and facilities, there is no elevator to take you down to it. The experience of staying amid these rock walls and sandstone pillars is indeed unique.
Book and Bed Tokyo, Japan
Now this place is truly different, a haven for those who love to read. The hotel looks like a used bookstore until you go ahead and slide open a bookshelf to reveal a cozy little alcove with a simple bed and reading light. There are thousands of books available to read for guests, with communal reading areas and shared bathrooms. Pretty remarkable, eh?
Lovers Deep, St. Lucia
Situated just off the coast of a beautiful Caribbean island, Lovers Deep is a leisure submarine intended for adventurous couples who’ve already inducted themselves into the Mile High Club and want to take their love to a new level, with a private night spent together submerged beneath the ocean waves. The stunning views of the marine world will surely take your breath away in these gorgeously unique lodgings.
Jumbo Stay, Sweden
A guaranteed unique adventure awaits you at Jumbo Stay, where you can spend the night onboard a real jumbo jet! On the ground, not in the air, of course. The plane is a used-out jumbo jet model 747-212B from 1976. It has been awarded a brand new, modern interior decoration, offering guests an experience apart. This exhilarating experience promises to leave no one indifferent.
There are more such hotels, ones where you get to stay in tree houses, ones shaped like a dog or made like an express train… Ghumau Kya intends to collect and explore all these places one day so that we can share these incredible experiences with you.
