Top 10 Most Weird Hotels in the World
Travellers have been staying at luxury hotels and resorts, budgeted motels and designer boutiques for years. But has anyone thought about spending some time in one of the most weird and unique hotels that the world has to offer? Our list of the Top 10 Most Weird Hotels in the World offers travellers with a unique take on accommodations and offers some of the most weird hotels which offer equally weird experiences. Some of them might not offer world class comfort, but they definitely top the charts when it comes to delivering an amazing and unusual experience.
10. Dog Bark Park Inn, USA
The Dog Bark Park Inn is one of the most unusual hotels in the world which has been constructed to resemble the body of a dog. Sweet Willy, the name of the dog represented by the hotel, is about 34 feet in length, 14 feet wide and 30 feet tall. Ya, we’re sure that it’s the largest, tallest and fattest dog on Earth. The toilets have been disguised as a huge fire hydrant and the loft rooms are located in the dog’s head. What makes the experience hilarious is that the guests enter this unique hotel through a balcony located at the rear.
09. Legoland Hotel, California, USA
Welcome to an actual hotel which has used more than 3 million pieces of Lego along with bricks and mortar to construct its premises. We guess they took to building blocks quite seriously. These Lego pieces have been used to create thousands of models that are on display all around the hotel and each of the 250 rooms have been decorated with adventure, kingdom or pirate themes. Guests are also allowed to pick and choose their preferred theme.
08. Sand Castle Hotel, Weymouth, UK
The Sand Castle Hotel is a seaside luxury resort that has been made from 1100 tonnes of sand. The hotel was completed in the year 2008 by a team of sculptors who worked non stop for 7 days continuously. What was even more surprising was that the hotel actually stood up till the next rain storm and tourists and locals actually took to the idea of living in the sand. For just $15, one could sleep under the stars and wake up to the beautiful sound of the waves knocking at the doors.
07. Hotel Unbalance, Peru
The Hotel Unbalance is one of the most unusual hotels that one would ever come across. This picture frame shaped hotel seems to be leaning over the edge of a cliff in Lima, Peru. According to the architects, the hotel was designed with a hollow center so that it did not obstruct the mind boggling ocean views which can be seen from Lima’s cliffs. It is said that the hotel is not unstable at all and everything is an optical effect, but we just have to wait and see if we fall off over the cliff while sleeping.
06. Hang Nga Crazy House, Vietnam
The Hang Nga Crazy House has a tree shaped design and is by far one of the most bizarre hotels that can be seen anywhere in the world. The cavernous interiors gave the hotel the nickname “Crazy House”. Each room represents a particular animal theme and also includes outdoor balconies. The sculpture garden located within the hotel is quite beautiful as well. All rooms are connected to the main lobby with the help of tunnels, ladders and bridges.
05. Ice Hotel, Sweden
No list of the Top 10 Most Weird Hotels in the World could ever be complete without mentioning the Ice Hotel. It offers tourists with a chance to live in the largest igloo of the world. The hotel has been entirely made from ice and snow and the beds and furnitures are made from snow as well. What makes this hotel so unique is that the entire hotel melts down in the summers and it is re-constructed every year in the month of November.
04. Palacio de Sal, Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
The Palacio de Sal consists of 15 rooms, a living room, a bar and a dining room which have been made from huge salt blocks that have been hauled in from the surrounding salt plains and held together by a unique mixture of salt and water which acts as cement. In fact, the only things that are not made of salt are the tin roof structures and the toilets. Try not to lick the salt walls when you stay at the hotel.
03. Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita, Italy
The Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita boasts of a fascinating hotel complex which is built amid grottos, rocks and caverns in Italy. The hotel complex has been constructed within Cliffside caves and consists of 18 rooms which offer furnishings made from antique woods, candle lighting and handmade linens.
02. Attrap Reves, France
Ever thought about camping but shied away from the thought due to the fear of insects or wild animals. For all such travellers, the Attrap Reves offers the perfect option. It allows tourists to experience the pleasures of sleeping under the stars without having to go through the ordeals of camping. The Attrap Reves has rooms which are made out of huge glass bubbles. These rooms are the best definitions of spending an extremely romantic night with your loved ones under the stars.
01. Poseidon Undersea Resorts, Fiji
Topping the list of the Top 10 Most Weird Hotels in the World is the Poseidon Undersea Resort. What could be more interesting and romantic than exploring the unimaginable beauty of the ocean from the luxuries of your hotel bed. The Poseidon Undersea Resort is known to be one of the best places in the world for tourists seeking solitude and relaxation. The daredevils are also offered with unique adventure activities such as driving a Triton submarine, scuba diving and exploring the ocean as a passenger aboard a 1000 foot luxury sub.
