Someone needs a room for a two-week vacation, someone for a day, and someone for a longer stay. So the question arises for the owners of hotels - how can they surprise their guests, how to attract them to your hotel? I'll tell you about some of the most unusual hotels in the world.
1. Hotel “Ioann Vasilievich. Cinema Club ", Yaroslavl, Russia
The peculiarity of this hotel is that in the interior of the rooms there are films shot in the city of Yaroslavl: "Ivan Vasilyevich changes his profession", "Afonya", "Crew", "Kotovsky", "Doctor Zhivago", "The incredible adventures of Italians in Russia", "Twelve Chairs", "Big Break" and many others. This allows guests to plunge into the unique atmosphere of a particular time and feel like the hero of their favorite movie.
2. Hotel "Palacio de Sal", Uyuni salt flat, Bolivia
This hotel was built quite recently - in 2007. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the entire hotel is made of salt - walls, floor, roof, furniture and even beds. The hotel has 16 rooms with all conveniences, living room, dining room and bar. The hotel has a real fireplace, and on the second floor there is a spacious terrace for lovers of the starry sky. Due to its "uniqueness" and proximity to the Uyuni salt marsh, the hotel is in great demand. One of the requirements of the hotel owners is: "We urge visitors not to lick the walls!"
3. Hotel Poseidon Undersea Resort, Poseidon Island, Fiji
This hotel attracts tourists with its underwater rooms. The rooms are located at a depth of 15 meters. Each room is a separate "capsule", the walls of which are made of a special transparent resin-plastic. Living in the room, you can watch the life of marine life around the clock by turning on a special light that will attract their attention. In total, there are 25 capsule rooms and one luxurious room with an area of 300 sq. meters, designed in the form of a submarine from the novel by J. Verne. There is also a large panoramic restaurant under the water. Despite the very high price (the cost of a week's stay per person - from $ 15,000), there are practically no vacancies here.
4. Hotel "Giraffe Manor", Nairobi, Kenya
The hotel occupies a huge territory and is surrounded by magnificent centuries-old forests. But this is not what attracts tourists, but a herd of giraffes that live on the territory of the hotel. Giraffes are the full-fledged owners of this place and are free in their movement. They are very friendly and would like to pop into your living room for tea and have a nice chat. Due to their height, they also look into the bedrooms of the second floor in order to attract attention and in the hope of getting some kind of treat. The hotel is also home to antelopes, hyenas, wild boars and more than 200 bird species.
5. Hotel "Magic Mountain Hotel", province of Valdivia, Chile
This hotel is located in a park reserve, surrounded by lakes and forests. In order not to disturb the delightful picture of nature, the hotel was built in the form of a mountain. The hotel looks like a dwelling of fabulous gnomes, all overgrown with plants, and a waterfall flows from the top of the "mountain". To get inside the hotel, you need to cross the suspension bridge. Inside there are full-fledged rooms with all conveniences. The hotel is small, only 13 rooms and each has the name of some bird that lives in the reserve. The hotel also has mini golf, restaurant, bar, sauna. Outdoors, there are hot tubs made from tree trunks that are naturally heated.
6. Hotel Crazy House, Da Lat, Vietnam
The hotel is built in the form of the trunk of a large magic tree, climbing the steps of which you get to different levels, where rooms like caves are located. Each room in the hotel is decorated in a certain style - there are rooms for "Bear", "Ant", "Tiger" and others. The hotel has an endless set of corridors, passages, different levels, stairs.Despite the amazingness and uniqueness of this place, I would not recommend staying here, since according to hotel rules, the door to the room must always be open so that anyone can admire the intricate rooms.
7. Seaventures Dive Resort, Sipadan Island, Malaysia
The hotel is in the sea and is located on a former oil rig. Getting here is not easy, but the hotel is extremely popular with divers from all over the world. This hotel cannot be called luxurious, since the rooms are former cabins of oil workers. Most of the rooms are modest in size, but equipped with everything you need. The main treasures of this hotel are hidden right under the oil platform, you just have to dive into the water and you will discover the whole diverse and amazing underwater world.
8. Hotel "La Villa Hamster", Nantes, France
The hotel consists of only one room with an area of 16 sq. meters. According to the creators' idea, the visitor of this hotel should feel like a real hamster. The room has a container with grain, an iron barrel with drinking water, a bed onto which you need to climb up an iron ladder hanging in the air. If you suddenly get bored or do not feel like a real rodent to the end, then the room has a large metal ring on which you can even run together. Upon arrival at the hotel, you are immediately handed a hamster costume and offered to try your hand at the wheel.
9. Hotel "Propeller Island City Lodge", Berlin, Germany
The hotel attracts with the fact that each room can be safely called a work of art and ingenuity, you will not find two identical ones. For example, one of the rooms is completely mirrored, in the other the floor is tilted. Those who wish can spend the night in coffins or in a room with a bed bolted to the ceiling. There is a room - an exact copy of a prison cell, a room with two cells instead of beds, there is a room with strange mechanisms, reminiscent of instruments of torture. And that's not all the surprises. If you are tired of the routine of everyday life and you urgently need new sensations, then this is the place for you.
10. Hotel "Kumbuk River Resort", Ella, Sri Lanka
The hotel is located on the banks of the river, next to a nature reserve that is home to wild elephants, peacocks and other exotic animals. Waterfalls and pristine beaches are nearby. The hotel is built in the shape of a huge elephant. There are only 4 rooms inside, which can accommodate no more than 12 people. The hotel is rapidly gaining popularity among fans of eco-tourism. Despite the wildness and virginity of the surrounding world, the hotel has all the benefits of civilization. The hotel grounds are full of tame chipmunks who are not averse to meeting you. Having rested at the hotel, you can safely brag to your friends that you spent the night in the "belly of an elephant".
