All hotels look alike. This is an observation that is often made by frequent travellers but it is not always true. There are some hotels that are totally original in their design and their offerings. Here are some of the strangest hotels on earth.
Gamisaru Cave Hotel
The Gamisaru Cave Hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey was made by restoring a Byzantine monastic retreat that is over 1,000 years old. This structure is carved out of a cliff that overlooks a stream. You may be thinking that this hotel is a bare minimum style experience in scarcity and will have its goal as escaping a materialistic lifestyle but the marble bathrooms and renovated facilities contribute more than that.
They give a feeling of comfort to the spiritual undertones that flow throughout this hotel. You can use your stay here to view the colourful frescoes that are hundreds of years old that can be found at a local church. This hotel is spiritual and completely original.
Al Maha Desert Resort And Spa
The Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa located in Dubai is made to appear to be a Bedouin Arab encampment. Continuing with this theme, the resort is peppered with desert artifacts for a genuine feel. In addition, every last one of the 30 suites of this resort possesses its own cool water pool.
Visitors to this resort can view the Hajar Mountains in their magnificent beauty or can choose to take a more direct approach and travel to the mountains. Camel riding and horse riding are potential activities for traversing the dunes but that's not all. Visitors can also take part in archery and nature walks.
Silken Puerta America
The Silken Puerta America in Madrid, Spain was not designed by one prominent national architect. It was designed by 18. This hotel boasts 342 rooms over 12 floors. Every floor was made to have its own decorating scheme with its own colours, shapes, and materials. The views of the mountains rival the meticulous artistic design of the hotel itself. The city can also be seen for those who wish to take in the spectacle of Madrid in all its splendour.
The strangest hotels recreate the concept of hotels. While you may have previously thought of hotels as uniform, cookie cutter creations now you can see just how different some hotels can be. The next time you are planning a trip and don't want to stay in a hotel that feels all too familiar, remember that there are strange hotels all over the world just waiting for your reservation. In this case, weird is good.
