Holidays with a difference
Category: News | Venues |
Holidays are often the highlight of the year and this year is certainly no exception. With the coldest May in over 300 years and monsoon level rains hitting the majority of the UK, it’s safe to say we can’t wait to escape to a little summer sun. However, why not break from tradition and stay in a hotel with a difference. Whether staying in the UK or venturing further afield there is a plethora of hotels whose sole aim is to create an experience you will never forget. I can’t deny I’ve spent a great deal of time roaming the internet in search of such hotels and I can guarantee many more hours will be spent day dreaming about each and every one of these hotels while watching the never ending rain out of the office window!
Here is a taste of what there is to be found:
- Green Magic Treehouses, Kerala, India
This resort provides the perfect excuse to re-explore your childhood fascination of tree houses. Imagine spending your time in a room 86 feet up in the air, accessible only by a cane lift and hanging rope bridges. The perfect way to explore a part of India often neglected.
- The Ice Hotel, Sweden
Ever visited one of the many Ice Bars around the world? Considered what it might be like to spend more time there? The Ice Hotel in Sweden provides the perfect opportunity to do exactly that. This is a truly unique environment which cannot be missed. With the sun never rising above the horizon the snow constantly glistens and crunches underfoot, and not only that but the chances of seeing the Northern Lights are highly favourable.
- Rangali Island Resort, the Maldives.
This 5* luxury resort provides the ultimate honeymoon suite, that only a few years ago would have been deemed impossible. It promises an unforgettable night below the Indian Ocean, yes you did read that right, and is one of the first hotels in the world to provide an underwater bedroom. This will provide a truly unbeatable view of the underwater kingdom from the comfort of your private room.
- M/V Aria, the Amazon.
Up until now the Amazon has been at the top of very few peoples dream holiday destinations but this could be about to change. Aqua Expeditions have designed two cruise ships to provide a luxury and altogether more comfortable way to explore the rainforest, encompassing the largest collection of living plants and animals in the world. With floor to ceiling windows in each cabin you won’t miss a thing and you can guarantee everyone back home will be jealous when they see it for themselves!
