Often, we favour the more practical option when it comes to choosing a hotel. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, a clean bathroom and being within close proximity to local amenities are some of the few things that we may take into consideration.
However, a stay in an unusual hotel, whether it may be a night in an upcycled Boeing 727 in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle, or a renovated fort surrounded by the sea, is something that we will continue to talk about long after check out!
Check out our list of the top 5 most unusual hotels from across the world.
Perhaps one of the most unusual hotels in the UK, this 19th-century sea fort was built originally to prevent a French invasion. Nowadays, it serves as a tourist attraction and hotel.
Situated in the Solent, the stretch of water between mainland England and the Isle Of Wight, and only accessible by ferry, the fort offers luxury accommodation to guests.
Bedrooms offer views of the surrounding ocean and contain some original features. The penthouse Lighthouse Suite is our favourite room, offering an abundance of natural light and a wonderful vantage point where guests can observe the sun deck.
The hotel has a billiards room, hot tub, laser tag area, sauna and wine tasting room for guests to enjoy themselves.
Experience a night surrounded by nature in a suspended, spherical treehuse in the tranquil Vancouver Island rainforest.
There are three tree houses to choose from, each with a comfortable double bed and huge windows for gazing at the surrounding scenery or the starry sky. A short walk away from the spheres is a kitchen with a barbecue and a shaded veranda, with handmade furniture.
These unique treehouses are functional, quaint and cosy. There are thoughtful touches scattered around each sphere, with a delicious breakfast provided and sumptuous, hotel-style bathrobes to make your stay that little bit more luxurious.
