As we journey through a time of uncertainty, one thing is for certain: our wanderlust is still active. Perhaps more now than ever. We’re dreaming of faraway places and itching to know when we can hop back on a plane and explore new destinations. So what better way to feed that need than taking a look at five of the world’s quirkiest hotels?
Jumbo Stay, Arlanda Airport, Stockholm
Aviation enthusiasts need to add this one to the list. This incredible hotel is set in a Boeing 747-212B, originally built for Singapore Airlines in 1976. You can sleep in the flight deck or one of the other 30 rooms available.
Residents can take a walk along the left-wing observation deck. So, if you’re feeling daring, you can experience the feeling of standing on top of the wing of a jumbo jet!
All rooms at Jumbo Stay have a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi and a private or a shared bathroom. A communal balcony is located by the cockpit and offers long runway views.
Conrad Rangali Island, Maldives
The incredible draw here is The Muraka. This hotel is a first-of-its-kind, luxury two-level residence with a master bedroom submerged 16 feet below sea level in the Indian Ocean!
Above water, you’ll find an outdoor deck with infinity pool, private jet skis, private butler and chef. Additionally, there is an on-call fitness trainer and spa treatments.
You take the spiral staircase or elevator down to your master bedroom, which features an amazing 180-degree curved acrylic dome with floor-to-ceiling windows and a dedicated tunnel viewing theatre!
Costa Verde, Costa Rica
The Hotel Costa Verde is perched on a coastal rainforest bluff nestling between Manuel Antonio National Park and incredible Pacific Ocean vistas that will take your breath away. They can provide a vacation adventure, tropical wedding or honeymoon and hotel experience unlike any you have imagined!
Here you can stay in a 727 fuselage, equipped with meticulous detail and two bedrooms – you’ll feel like you’re flying through the rainforest! There are three cliff-side pools with sundecks and spacious rooms, studios and bungalows. All rooms offer balconies with a bird’s-eye view of the Manuel Antonio National Park’s majestic coastline or rainforest canopy. You can spend your evenings relaxing on the terrace while sipping a glass of wine and observing your neighbours: sloths, toucans, monkeys and more!
Costa Rica and Costa Verde are rich in environmental diversity, magnificent landscapes, relaxing and adrenaline-packed activities and warm Tico hospitality.
Skylodge Adventure Suites, Peru
Located in the Secret Valley of Cuzco, these luxury capsules allow you the chance to sleep within a completely transparent hanging bedroom while appreciating the impressive view of the magic and mystic valley. There’s just one catch… to sleep here, you must climb 400ft of Via Ferrate or hike an intrepid trail through ziplines. Handcrafted out of aerospace aluminium and weather-resistant polycarbonate, each suite comes complete with four beds, a dining area and a private bathroom.
Free Spirit Spheres, Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Islands
Look no further for a one-of-a-kind getaway. These cool, quirky and truly unique spherical treehouses offer an exquisite combination of back-to-nature experience and ‘glamping’.
Set among the coastal rainforest of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, you can spend your visit in the trees where you will find peace and relaxation or the exceptional, exotic hotel makes a perfect base from which to explore all that the magnificent island has to offer!
