There are some really funky hotels in the world, from ice rooms to capsules to hobbit caves to mirrorcubes, but none of them are nearly as unconventional as the ones on this list. You will be surprised by what you see. Take a look!
Number Seven: Solent Fort Hotels – UK
No Man’s Fort is an abandoned Victorian fort turned into a deluxe, secluded hotel. The resort is located, quite literally, right in the middle of the ocean; 1.4 miles from the Isle of Wight and 1 mile from Portsmouth. The master suite is a glass-floored penthouse which occupies the entirety of a lighthouse! Two other similar venues, Spitbank Fort and Horse Sand Fort, can also be booked.
Number Six: The Dog Bark Park Inn, Idaho
This unique, pet-friendly, American B&B is located inside the world’s biggest beagle. Owned by a couple of chainsaw artist, the inn was named one of the 20 most fun and exciting places to stay by the London Times!
Number Five: Faralda Crane Hotel, The Netherlands
It’s exactly what you think it is: a crane. Even though it doesn’t sound or look very glamorous, this three-room hotel is one of the most high-end in Amsterdam, and it’s been named the “The most Romantic place to stay on earth.” Hotel guests have access to a heated spa pool with incredible views of the city.
Number Four: Marmara Antalya, Turkey
On the outside, the Marmara Antalya looks just like any other premium resort in the world. Nothing seems out of the ordinary However, there’s one peculiarity to this hotel that can only be appreciated in motion: it rotates. The building floats and revolves in a tank of water for guests to have a constantly changing view of the Mediterranean Sea and the Turkish Falez hills.
Number Three: Jules Undersea Lodge, Florida
There are a few underwater resorts in the world (the Manta Resort, in Tanzania, and the Poseidon Undersea Resort, in Fiji, are the most popular,) but the Jules is a little different; it used to be a marine research laboratory. Unlike the previously mentioned hotels, this one is not luxurious at all, and it’s entirely submerged, approximately 30 feet underwater on the ocean floor. The submarine feel of the resort might be too claustrophobic for some guests, but those who enjoy an unconventional stay will definitely love it.
Number Two: Hotel Costa Verde, Costa Rica
A resort located in the middle of the rainforest will always be an enthralling place to stay, but the Costa Verde goes beyond your average wooden bungalow and offers a 1965 Boeing 727 to sleep in instead! The retired commercial aircraft is now a two-bedroom, fully equipped, luxurious suite with incredible views of the Caribbean Sea.
Number One: Propeller Island City Lodge, Berlin
Where to start with this one… Located in Berlin, this contemporary-museum-meets-hotel, defined by its owners as an “habitable work of art,” features over 40 unique rooms, which range from a kaleidoscopic, diamond-shaped, mirror-covered, suite to a coffin room. Nothing is ordinary in this hotel. Thanks for reading!
