Jules Underwater Lodge
Key Largo, Florida, United States
If you’ve long dreamed of what it might be like to stay in the depths of the sea, think about staying at Jules Underwater Lodge for your next vacation. This retired research laboratory is now the first underwater hotel in the world. You can access it by diving about six and a half meters under the sea and entering through an apartment floor. Be sure you’re certified to dive, however, or else you’ll need to undergo a 3-hour scuba diving course before being able to stay here.
The Mirrorcube is an incredibly tiny box of a hotel made from lightweight aluminum. Suspended around the trunk of a tree and covered in mirrors, it shows a 360-degree view of its surroundings. This miniature hotel can accommodate just two people at a time with its double bed, living room, small bathroom and terrace on the roof. The designers were cautious in regards to nature when creating this odd little hotel, however, as they laminated an ultraviolet color onto the reflective glass that only birds can see to keep them from colliding into it.
Palacio de Sal
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
If you’re looking for a particularly weird hotel to visit, consider Salar de Uyuni. This hotel offers 15 bedrooms, a dining room, a living room and a bar all made from salt. It was built from salt blocks brought there from the many surrounding salt plains nearby, and those salt blocks are held together by a glue like mixture of water, and yes, salt. As a matter of fact, just about everything in this hotel seems to be made from salt besides its tin roof and the toilets.
Dog Bark Park Inn
Cottonwood, Idaho, United States
This bed and breakfast may not be state of the art in any way, but it sure is pretty bizarre. Dog Bark Park Inn is a beagle-themed hotel that can accommodate up to four guests at a time. It features two beagle dogs, the larger of which offers the room to stay. Guests enter via a balcony which will take you up to the head of the dog where there’s an alcove within the muzzle, a loft bedroom and a toilet disguised as – not too surprisingly – a fire hydrant.
ICEHOTEL may not be the only hotel made from – you guessed it – ice and snow, but it is the largest. Beyond offering temperatures of less than 0 degrees Celsius, ICEHOTEL is a weird creation in that it has to be rebuilt every year, as it melts away annually. A lot of work goes into reconstructing this hotel year after year as architects use several hundred tons of ice to rebuild the rooms, chapel and bar. If you think you can bear the cold, consider bundling up and staying a few nights in a freezing bed of snow and ice.
