The history of hospitality has been enriched by a number of hotels that go beyond the standard rooms and standard services. One of the most unusual hotels is the Underwater Lodge in the Maldives. Submerged in the ocean, guests have the unique opportunity to observe the underwater world from their comfortable rooms surrounded by walls of glass.
In New Zealand, a “Tree House” has been built among the treetops. This hotel offers visitors a unique experience of living amongst the crowns of giant trees, with panoramic views and a complete sense of natural seclusion.
The Igloo in Ice Village Hotel in Finland provides guests with an immersive Arctic experience. Deployed each year out of ice and snow, this unique ice village offers guests authentic ice rooms with their own installations and amazing ice sculptures.
An unusual experience can also be found in Japan, at the Glass Capsule Hotel. This hotel consists of capsules made of transparent glass, which provides a unique view of the night city. Each capsule is equipped with all the necessary amenities and guests can enjoy privacy, yet still be in the heart of the city’s hustle and bustle.
In the Peruvian Andes, there is the Nester’s Nest Hotel, which is built on the side of a cliff and resembles the nest of an Andean condor. Overhanging over the cliff, the hotel offers incredible views of the surrounding landscape and a unique experience of being in the heart of nature.
In Turkey, in the Cappadocia region, is the “Hotel in the Rock”, which is integrated into natural rock formations. The rooms are carved into the rocks and provide incredible views of the amazing landscapes of Cappadocia.
