The gladdest moment in human life is a departure into unknown lands.Sir Richard Burton
We might not spend a lot of time in our hotel rooms, but why not sleep in style or at least in a place that sparks your imagination. I’m so sad that I haven’t stayed at any of these but you can bet good money that they I’m going to eventually stay at every single one of these!
There’s about a million I could list here so expect lots more posts like this in the future!
Free Spirit Spheres
Situated in the Pacific Northwest, this quirky Canadian accommodation is perfect for those looking to add some adventure to their sleeping arrangements. What’s not to like about sleeping in a giant sphere in the rainforest for a fantastic back to nature experience?
Book & Bed
Book lovers rejoice! I feel like this hotel was made for people like me: someone who never leaves the house without a book, audiobook, or something else I can read. Tokyo has made it even more appealing to visit with beds literally made into and around bookshelves. You’ll never be more than 2 feet away from a book at all times when you’re sleeping. Heck to the yes.
Crane Hotel Faralda
Get over your fear of heights for this insanely unique hotel experience. An actual industrial crane was repurposed to fit 3 suites (and even a jacuzzi) all with panoramic views of Amsterdam. As if that wasn’t enough, you can bungee jump off the top in their 300ft mega swing. Where do I sign up??
If you’re looking to relax in New Zealand and are also into sustainable travel, you’ve got to check this place out. These rooms were designed to get you away from the hustle and bustle of life and just get away from everything. Literally everything., except peacefulness. The silos themselves are energy efficient and are considered an industry leader in sustainable accommodations. More hotels like this please!
SkyLodge Adventure Suites
I came so close to staying here, but it just wasn’t in the cards. These individual pods hang from the side of a cliff in Peru’s Sacred Valley. The walls are almost all transparent to give you one of a kind views of one of the most breathtaking countries on the planet. They do require a climb to reach them, but oh man is it worth it.
Dog Bark Park Inn
Have you ever wanted to stay in a hotel shaped like a beagle? Now you can! All you have to do is book your stay and travel to Idaho. This accommodation is actually an award-winning bed & breakfast. What’s better than quirky hotels AND food? It’s dog-friendly.
If I don’t make it here in my lifetime, I can only hope I’ll come back as a ghost to stay here. (Sorry in advance for haunting you if it comes to that.) Located in the Zanzibar archipelago, this hotel gives you your own partially submerged island to sleep in. Feel free to jump off to snorkel or swim to your heart’s content.
Maybe warm and fuzzy isn’t your thing. For you cold loving adventurers out there, head over to Sweden! The hotel is literally rebuilt each year so no stay is ever the same. Stay in a spectacularly designed room, many of which have unique themes that change as often as the hotel does! I don’t really like the cold, but I would 1000% stay there!
