Many people are passionate about traveling and admiring all the wonderful places in the world. It’s also an opportunity to enrich our life with experiences.
One of the things we take into account when planning our trips is the hotel where we’d stay. Some of us look for luxurious all-inclusive hotels, some prefer comfortable rooms, and some look for the most affordable ones. And, we can say that there are hotels for everyone’s taste. From impressive luxe hotels to bizarre ones. The latter ones are built with the intention of being a tourist attraction themselves.
Peculiar, bizarre, odd… call them as you wish, these are the 10 strangest hotels in the world!
10. Earthship Biotecture – Taos, USA
Perfect for nature lovers, this hotel is made up of a set of buildings all built according to the most innovative eco-sustainable techniques, with gray water filtering systems and solar panels for energy production. The houses are well cared for, furnished in Zen style, full of flowers and colorful details, all immersed in the wild nature of South America.
9. Seaventures Dive Resort – Pulau Sipadan, Malaysia
For those who love to dive and observe underwater landscapes, this is the ideal hotel. It is a diving station, built in the style of stilts on the water. It doesn’t promise great comfort but it offers the chance to get up in the morning, wear a suit and oxygen cylinders, and dive directly into the sea with a simple jump to find yourself surrounded by a splendid coral reef guided by professional instructors.
8. Blue Cave Castle – Negril, Jamaica
This very special hotel reproduces an ancient fortress built overlooking the sea, with a lot of crenelated towers. At the entrance, a magnificent green lawn welcomes the tourists who have the opportunity to admire the landscape and the sea from splendid terraces and jump into the water directly from stone stairs descending from the rooms.
7. Woodlyn Park – Otorohanga, New Zealand
Created in the last century as a farm, over the years, it has transformed into something incredible. The owners have created rooms and suites inside a US plane, a ship moored by the park, and inside a structure called the Hobbit hotel that faithfully reproduces Frodo’s house. It’s the perfect destination for a family vacation that will entertain your children.
6. Train Station Inn – Tatamagouche, Canada
What makes this hotel strange is that it is a train station. The rooms are located between the station building and the train, the carriages of which have been converted into suites with all the comforts. There is also a dining car and the staff is dressed like real stationmasters, with hats and whistles. There’s lots of nature all around this hotel and an opportunity to admire it from the “terrace wagon”.
5. Hang Nga GuestHouse – Dalat, Vietnam
This hotel is really weird! It is built in a “fantasy” style, with cave rooms, tree houses, and log houses. It is a very fun place, especially for children, as there are stairs, ladders, bridges, and hidden rooms that greatly stimulate the curiosity of the little ones. Everything is intertwined with branches, leaves, and lianas, which makes this hotel an eye-catcher even for the older ones who will be a bit disappointed as this hotel doesn’t offer all the comforts.
4. Treebones Resort – Big Sur, USA
Treebones Resort looks like an Indian village, with circular tents made of wood and covered in fabric and treehouses surrounded by nature with a splendid view of the sea. There is also a bar-restaurant area with a swimming pool, which offers a swim for those who want to relax. In this way, this resort offers the guests, both, taking long walks in the surrounding woods and a swim in the pool.
3. The Five Hotel – Paris, France
The lowest step of the podium takes a Parisian hotel which is perfect for couples. It’s because it has an imaginative design and mall but comfortable rooms with a great view over the city. The beds are adorned with flowers and there’s a system of LED lights in the rooms, which creates a very romantic atmosphere thanks also to the colored walls and the modern and very refined furniture.
2. Propeller Island City Lodge – Berlin, Germany
What makes this hotel the second-strangest in the world is that each room is furnished with a different style: ranging from total white to psychedelic with walls completely covered with mirrors, to rooms furnished with furniture hanging from the ceiling, rooms with beds inside coffins, and rooms with beds inside cages. In short, there is something for everyone!
1. Costa Verde Hotel – Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica
In the first place, we find a plane! Yes, Costa Verde Hotel is a hotel built in and around an airplane, which is evidently placed there, yet not crashed. But the feeling is just like that – as if you’re going to crash any time! Since there are branches everywhere, surrounding the rooms, the animals live in symbiosis with the visitors. The hotel is located in the jungle, still, it’s close to the sea.
