The Strangest Hotels on Earth


As long as you're traveling to some beautiful or exotic location, you might as well consider making your hotel a travel-worthy destination as well. Each of these unusual hotels around the world does its best to provide guests with, in one way or another, a unique and unforgettable experience.

There are a lot of different ways to make a hotel unique. For some of these, the location is key. In others, the architecture of the hotel itself is an attraction – I've certainly never been to a floating hotel or to a hotel built in an airliner!


The Manta Resort

The Manta Resort’s Underwater Room is an astonishing – and astonishingly expensive -- tiny private island for rent. You can sunbathe or stargaze on the roof of the structure, relax and dine on the main floor, and sleep thirteen feet below the surface of the water in the underwater chamber, where spotlights underneath each window shine on the sea life swimming past. It’s a very beautiful concept and only slightly terrifying.



According to its website, the 24-year-old IceHotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, is the first and largest ice hotel on the planet. Who knew the concept of a hotel made of 30,000 tonnes of “snice” (that’s snow and ice) would take off but apparently it has indeed spawned some competition. Before you book your stay, be sure to read the information about how to dress appropriately for the -7 degree Celcius temperature you can expect to experience in your room. At least you won’t be calling the front desk to complain about the air conditioning.
