Friday Five: Unique hotel designs


It’s one thing travelling and seeing incredible sights, but why not explore the world while sleeping in the most unique hotels? Here are a few of our suggestions:

1. Kenyan Manor Hotel

What better way to visit Kenya than to sleep in a hotel where you breakfast with your family and a very tall animal friend? Dining with giraffes is a key selling point of the Kenyan Manor Hotel.

2. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

Sleep under the Northern Lights and live a luxurious life in Lapland; a perfect choice for the winter months. 

3. A vintage 1965 Boeing 727

Not many people can say they have slept in a fully refurbished grounded aeroplane in Costa Verde – a colourful option if you’re exploring the Americas.

4. No Man’s Fort

A fan of solitude? The No Man’s Fort hotel is off the Isle of Wight, so it certainly offers an interesting choice close to home. And yes, it really is a fort.

5. Magic Mountain Lodge

Become enchanted with a hotel in the heart of Patagonia. The Magic Mountain Lodge, known as the ‘Hobbit hotel’, comes complete with an incredible waterfall.
