The Most Unusual, Unique Hotels on Earth

If you are tired of daily routines, a standard hotel on your next vacation may not be as thrilling as it should be. Why not consider something totally different for your next trip?

The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, Maldives

A stay at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort will let you experience life above and below the surface of the Indian Ocean! It is the world’s first hotel villa located underwater, called The Muraka and connected by jetty to the main building.

A triumph of modern design and technology, the Muraka is 16+ ft, over 5m, below sea level and features glass walls. You will fall asleep to fish swimming overhead and wake up to the swaying coral in this two-level aquarium.

The Desert Cave Hotel, Australia

The great thing about playing casino real money games online is that you can do so anywhere, and not in the windowless caverns traditional gambling venues are famous for. But the Desert Cave Hotel doesn’t have any other option since it’s been built in an underground chamber in Coober Peddy, a town in northern South Australia.

You can choose whether to stay above or below ground, but the latter is highly recommended. Airy, cool, dark, and quiet, the rooms are incredibly spacious and the high ceilings will alleviate any claustrophobia.

Giraffe Manor, Kenya

Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel situated in one of the most iconic buildings in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. There’s a timeless 1930s elegance here which recalls the heady days when European tourists first began their visits to this part of East Africa to enjoy safaris and the like.

With Giraffe Manor’s formal facade, exquisite interiors, lush green gardens, and cosy courtyards, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve just stepped onto the set of the award-winning Meryl Streep vehicle Out of Africa.

As wonderful as all this is, however, the most captivating element of this charming destination is its tower of Rothschild giraffes. They visit each morning and evening, extending their elegant necks through the windows of the Manor in hopes of a treat before retreating back into their forest sanctuary.

The Treehotel, Sweden

The Treehotel is situated in Harads, in Sweden, and allows you to experience nature amongst the tops of the trees! Created by some of that country’s finest architects, rooms are suspended between four and six metres, or roughly 13 to 20 feet, above the ground. The rooms provide breathtaking views of the Lule Valley, the canopy of fir trees that make up the Harads forest, and the Lule River.

The Mirrorcube is the room you’ll want to stay at when you’re here. It’s a block measuring 4X4X4 metres surrounded by looking-glass walls which both blend into and reflect the surroundings. There’s a tree trunk growing up through the room enclosed in the aluminium frame which forms the chamber’s base, and all the walls are covered in mirror glass. You’ll have privacy though, thanks to plywood covering the walls inside.
