"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
July 25th, 2014
When you’re traveling the world you always need a place to sleep or rest, the majority of travelers rent a hotel, cabin, suite, etc. The standard hotel is just a tall building with many windows, balconies, your basic pool, and lobby. But, there are some other hotels in the world that just leave you with your mouth open! These are some of the strangest, beautiful, bucket list type hotels in the world.
#1. The Ice Hotel
Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. This is the first and largest ice hotel in the world. Its made up of snow and ice and is rebuilt every winter because it eventually melts into the Torne River. Looking at the pictures alone is breathtaking, I can’t imagine actually staying in one!
#2. Tropical Paradise
Maui, Hawaii. For those that don’t enjoy the chilly weather, there is always the option of going to a tropical paradise! At TheWestin, there is this amazing water slide along with the beautiful view. I could already feel my skin soaking up the sun and screaming my head off as I go down the water slide!
Saariselkä, Finland. The Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort looks absolutely stunning! Going to sleep and waking up to the Northern Lights in an igloo has to be the best thing in the world. On their website they have a section for “WINTER” and if you hover over it you see that they offer reindeer safaris, husky safaris, and aurora hunting!
#4. Palacio de Sal
Salar de Uyuni, Uyuni, Potosí, Bolivia. An entire hotel built from salt. Its made up of one million cubes of salt!!! Creating something like this takes talent, I’m amazed that something like this can even exist.
Turkey. The Cappadocia Hotels are laid out throughout Turkey and there is a selection of luxurious, historical, or charming types of hotels. I’ve never visited Turkey, but when I do I know where I’m sleeping! Staying in a cave would definitely remind me of the Flintstones!
These are just a few of the unusual hotels in the world. I can’t wait to visit all of these soon and cross them off my bucket list!
