Sleep under the sea in the Underwater Room off the coast of Zanzibar. This floating structure at The Manta Resort gives you an up-close look at the schools of colorful fish that swim by during the day, and the curious nocturnal creatures that glide by your windows in the inky depths. Located in the middle of a reef, the room is only accessed via boat. Three levels include a landing deck, a roof for star gazing, and an abode with a double bed with breathtaking views of squid, octopus, and vibrant red Spanish dancers.

Camping never sounded so glam. Dream of the desert in a two-person tent near Dar Ahlam in southern Morocco. Lanterns cast a soft, warm, cozy glow to help you drift off to sleep. Further east in Jordan, enjoy an evening dining on mouth-watering Middle Eastern fare followed by a night in a sumptuous private Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum
Fairy Chimney Inn
Ever fancied living like a caveman? Take a trip back in time at the Fairy Chimney Inn, located in the heart of Cappadocia, Turkey. A large part of the hotel is carved out of the ‘fairy chimney’ rock formations that Cappadocia is famous for. What’s more, the rooms were originally part of a 1500-year-old Byzantine cave monastery. This is cave dwelling in luxury. Rooms are set inside the rock formations which tower in jagged cone shapes. The out-of-this-world terrain of Turkey‘s Cappadocia region looks magical from up above in a hot air balloon in the early morning hours.

The glass tops are for guests to view the spectacular Northern Lights that bathe the sky in a myriad of colours all through the months of November to April, right from the comfort of their hotel bed! A stay here is bound to be an experience you’ll be talking about for years.
