We are here providing a list of some not so known places which might make your trip worthwhile.
In Oxford, England, guests can stay at a hotel in the prestigious Malmaison chain. The 94 room hotel offers luxurious rooms, a hotel bar and restaurant, and other amenities. The interesting fact, though, is that the hotel is part of Oxford Castle, which was formerly known as HM Prison Oxford. Guests sleep in the redesigned and considerably more comfortable cells of the previous occupants.
Das Park Hotel in the Austrian municipality of Ottensheim is a novel idea developed by Andreas Strauss in 2004. Guests stay in refurbished cement pipes accessed by a passcode. The pipes are big enough for room basics and even include wall paintings for ambiance. Some of our customers may balk at sleeping in a pipe, but it’s sure to be an unusual experience.
In Idaho, a couple of artists who specialize in dog carvings run a B&B known as the Dog Bark Park Inn. The reason for the name is apparent once guests see the inn. It’s a giant dog with rooms inside!
In a world of myriad vacation destinations and tourist sites, knowledge of unique travel destinations can be very valuable. Off the beaten path, exotic, unique, and one-of-a-kind are all identifiers that speak of wonderful vacation experiences.
Off the coast of Tanzania, Pemba Island’s Manta Resort added an underwater room to their hotel. The room for two floats several hundred feet off the shore and includes an above sea level lounge and rooftop deck and the famous underwater glass room. The room was designed by a Swedish firm to provide guests with an incredible view of the fish and fauna surrounding it.
The room is similar to the Utter Inn, built in Sweden by the same firm. The inn provides less in terms of comforts, opting instead for a rustic feel.
Swedish ingenuity also brought the world the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. For several thousand kroner (a few hundred dollars) guests can sleep on an ice mattress in a hotel made of ice and snow. The reindeer hides covering the mattresses bring the chill down considerably, while the icy vodka bar provides a refreshing experience.
