In past posts we have brought a look at some weird, wonderful and unique hotel rooms, so now, at a time when much of the world is in lockdown and travel is near impossible, here are a few more glimpses of the world we are hoping to visit when life returns to normality.
Conrad Maldives – The Muraka
Part of the luxurious Conrad Rangali Resort, the Muraka is a two-story, three-bedroom undersea residence with a modern, domed design. The glass walled bedroom provides a special view of the undersea world.
Faralda Crane Hotel – Amsterdam
The Faralda Crane Hotel features 3 unique suites at the top of an old crane in the industrial NDSM heritage in Amsterdam. Each suite has its own personality – Mystique, Free Spirit, Secret.
The 50m high crane took more than 5 years to restore and also house the Faralda Club on the top of the structure.
Arctic Spas Suite, Hotel de Glace, Canada
The Hotel de Glace (ice hotel) offers its guests a one-of-a-kind winter experience. Each year the hotel transforms itself into an icy wonderland, with unique rooms, some of which include fireplaces and spa baths.
The Wigwam Motel – San Bernardino, California
The Wigwam Motel was constructed in the late 1940’s on the once famous Route 66 at San Bernardino, California. The motel consists of 20 wigwam guest rooms and an office. Like the route itself, the property has become pretty run down in recent times but remains a unique landmark for travellers, including those intrigued by the catchphrase of an sign advertising saying “Do it in a Tee Pee” that is still on site…
Domes – EcoCamp, Patagonia
EcoCamp Patagonia is the world’s first geodesic dome hotel, located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park. The camp was the region’s first fully sustainable accommodation south of the Amazon and offers 4 types of dome accommodation that are designed and decorated in the local Patagonian style and after the “leave no trace” dwellings of the ancient Kaweskar tribe.
Karosta Prison Hotel, Liepāja, Latvia
Whilst designed originally as a hospital, Karosta in Latvia spent most of the 20th century as a prison used by both the Nazis and Soviets. Today, guards still walk Karosta’s halls and courageous people occupy its cells, even though the prison has been closed for decades. Prisoners have been replaced by tourists looking for an authentic jail experience in the form of a “boutique hotel.”
This might not be everyone’s idea of fun but it certainly is unique!!
