Bird's Nest, Flying Saucer... Perhaps Lego Cubes?

Building a hotel may be one of the dreams of many visionares... There’s something to developing a concept that creates a memorable experience  catering to clients, ensuring their satisfaction at every aspect of hospitality. And that’s just what some of the great minds of our time have created! This week we bring to you our top picks of unusual hotels around the world, bound to keep travellers amused and awed at what these places have in store.

Did you have one of those childhoods where you climbed up treehouses? Thanks to a couple of Swedish architects, travellers can relive those days (though with a futuristic makeover) and escape to the Treehotel in Harads, Sweden. Each suite has its own unique look. The most interesting construction of all may be their Mirrocube, equipped with a mirrored exterior that reflects the forest on all sides – almost as if it creates a gap in the space-time continuum!

Hidden in the waters of Pemba Island in Zanzibar, The Manta Resort offers a room that floats among coral reefs that bring about various tropical sea creatures that are attracted by the light shining from the underwater section, four meters below the surface of the water. This pristine section of the Swahili Coast offers great snorkeling and diving experience. Travellers can also climb up to the roof of it to sunbathe, gaze upon the sunset, or stargaze at night...

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

Probably one of the coolest places to stay in to see the Northern Lights, Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort provides igloos for travellers to sleep in, under a thermo glass that ensures clear views of the star spangled skies. It is totally quiet, and lights inside the ice illuminate the igloo. Located in the Saariselka fell area amidst beautiful Finnish Lapland scenery in the vicinity of Urho Kekkonen National Park, it will be a memorable experience (no doubt) for all couples to enjoy.
