What are some unique hotels in the world?

Despite some drastic editing, there are still way too many places, I fear for the monicker "unique"! What I have tried to do is to choose places which are both representative of a certain style (i.e, private island with super white sand, paradise beaches) and of different regions, the goal was to have as many possible style of places in as many different regions of the globe as possible!

As per my usual answers, all details in terms of website, addresses, etc is found in my self-made Google Maps found at the bottom of the answer.

Ready for the trip? Let's go!

Kirini Santorini — Greece

No better place to start than Santorini, one of the most picturesque island in the world. It's white, it's blue, it's black, it's beautiful.

Il Pellicano — Italy

The Med plus Tuscany, staggering views and excellent food.

Hotel Marques de Riscal — Spain

Frank Gehry in a vineyard? Ultra-modern combined with rustic old village?

Propeller Island City LodgeGermany

You are not hallucinating, yes this room is upside down! And every other room is unique and artistic and funny.

Havenkraan van Harlingen — Netherlands

Only one room in this hotel, that's unique! Oh and it's on top of a huge Harbour Crane.

Hotel Particulier Montmartre — France

Magical place in the romantic heart of Paris, a microcosm of French culture.

The Ice Hotel — Sweden

You all probably heard about it by now and it sounds cliché but no, it is a real, unique, experience.

The Library Hotel — NYC, USA

The hotel boasts a unique organizing principle: each of its ten guest floors has a theme, designated after a major category of the Dewey Decimal System.

Dunton Hot Spring Resort — Colorado

For the nostalgics and the Western films lovers, the cliché "America" for us Europeans.

Post Ranch Inn — California

The Power of Big Sur and all its literary incarnations, some of the best views in the wordl but what I like the best about it are its fabulous Tree Houses.

Majahuitas Resort — Mexico

Super eco-friendly place where luxury meets wilderness and adventure.

Parrot Cay Island resort — Turks & Caicos

Just one of those idyllic white beach - palm tree resort you know...boring!

Ladera — Saint Lucia

No beaches here? And it's in the Carribeans? Get out of here...

Ariau Amazon Towers Hotel — Brazil

The ultimate jungle trip, right in the middle of the Amazon Forest.

Hotel Atacama — Chile

In a huge desert in Chile, the beauty of emptiness and pure design.

Hotel Salto Chico — Chile

If I had to rank them, this place would be my #1, most amazing setting you have ever seen. Good luck getting there though, completely lost in the middle of Patagonia, make you sure you zoom down in Satellite View on the Google Map.

Le Ta'ha — French Polynesia

This is paradise. Seriously.

Vomo Island Resort — Fidji

A private island, nobody around, plenty of things to do - the perfect combination of lie-on-the-beach-holiday and outdoor activities.

Saffire Freycinet — Tasmania

The wild nature of Tasmania makes this place very exotic.

Southern Ocean Lodge — Australia

Probably one the most beautiful restaurant terrace in the world.

Longitude 131º — Australia

In the heart of the desert, with Ayers Rock right in your face at all times. Crazy.

Amandari — Bali

Bali is one of the most magical place on Earth, the landscape is so serene but it's the people that truly make this place...unique!

Tenku No Mori — Japan

This is where you can fully appreciate the "Japanese way of life" in all its serenity, beauty and calm. A 'religious' experience even for atheists.

  • Ringha Hotel - China

A mystical, little-known, place in the heart of China, full of temples and symbols, far away from the hustle and bustle.

  • Villa Amanzi Phuket - Thailand

Super-modern, minimalist design set in beautiful nature is what I love, I admit it.

  • Tanjong Jara Resort - Malaysia

The eastern coast of Malaysia is one of the last last undiscovered treasure of the tourist world, let's keep it that way...

  • Taj Lake Palace - India

Like a Maharaja in India!

  • Huvafen Fushi - Maldives

And I could easily name 6 other amazing resort in the Maldives, it's all good and it's gotta be done at least once!

  • North Island Hotel - Seychelles

For me, this place is the ultimate in luxury in the world. Private island, own villa, etc...

  • Burj Al Arab - Dubai

Talking about ultimate experiences, this hotel ranks quite high too...

  • Anantara Qasr - Abu Dabi

The Desert, in all its majestic beauty.

  • Vamizi Island Lodge - Mozambique

Again off the beaten path, but oh so unique, everything and everybody here is still wild and pure and beautiful and good!

  • Singita Sweni Lodge - South Africa

No guide would be complete without the safari lodge of course, again a perfect combination of nature, design and luxury. Possibly the three main themes of our tour around the World's Most Unique Hotels.
