Are you a seasoned traveler who’s feeling a little underwhelmed by the prospect of another stay in a hotel chain where all the rooms look the same no matter where you are in the world? Then you need to book into one of these hotels that offer something a bit different and unique from the run-of-the-mill accommodation. Here are some of the most unusual hotels in the world:
1. Longitude 131, Australia
This is the exact location of Uluru, the iconic red rock of Aboriginal legend. It’s also the name of a distinctive hotel with some of the best views of Ayers Rock you can hope to find. Each room is a tent-like cabin with floor to ceiling windows offering spectacular views across the desert. The cabins are all built on stilts and themed to represent different Australian pioneers. You even get amazing views from the luxurious shower in the ultra-modern bathroom facilities.
2. Tierra Atacama, Atacama, Chile
You might think you’ve landed on Mars when you arrive at this unusual destination. The desert landscape is certainly dramatic as you relax into your luxury boutique hotel styled with a minimalist theme. Everything is made from locally sourced materials like stone and wood and while this might sound barren, it’s ultra-modern with all meals included and a generous list of activities. A perfect location for climbing the nearby volcano and a spot of wild bird watching.
