Kakslauttanen Hotel, Finland

If you’re hoping to spot the Aurora Borealis, we can’t think of a better place to be than the Kakslauttanen Hotel. One of the room options is an enchanting glass igloo, granting you unbridled views of the night sky. The best time to see the aurora borealis is between late August and April.

 

Pantone Hotel, Brussels

The Pantone Hotel does exactly what it says on the tin: it’s a hotel dedicated to pantone colours. Set in the heart of trendy Brussels, the Pantone Hotel pops with colour, both inside and out. It’s the perfect accommodation if you’re looking for a short city break.

 

Jumbo Stay, Sweden

This hotel is actually a jumbo jet, located right next to the airport in Stockholm. The jet-hotel (don’t worry, it remains stationary) includes 27 air-conditioned rooms as well as the first jumbo bar, where you can enjoy a few drinks whilst soaking up the unique surroundings.

 

Atlantis The Palm, Dubai

Dubai is famous for its extravagance, and Atlantis The Palm is no exception. By far the most impressive aspect of this resort though is its underwater suites. Yes, you heard that right. These unique suites give a whole new meaning to sleeping with the fishes, whilst also offering unparalleled levels of service and hospitality.

 

Ice Hotel, Sweden

Half hotel, half work of art, the Ice Hotel is unlike any other. Stay in a room hand carved in ice, measuring at a bracing -5 degrees Celsius, or enjoy a frosty cocktail in the Ice Bar, before treating yourself to a session in the sauna. Don’t worry though: if you don’t think you can cope with the cold, the hotel also has ‘warm rooms’!

 

Hotel Marques De Riscal, Spain

You can’t miss the Hotel Marques De Riscal, thanks to its unforgettable exterior. In fact, every detail of the hotel has been taken into account, with unique rooms and grounds; it’s the perfect place to stay if you fancy something a little different.

 

Crazy Bear, UK

Equal measures beautiful and bizarre, the Crazy Bear hotel is designed with luxury in mind, with a few twists along the way. For example, have you ever been to a hotel where there’s a huge bathtub at the end of your bed?

Surrounded by miles of countryside, the Crazy Bear hotel also boasts a farm shop and a restaurant which uses fresh and organic produce.
