I have recently finished reading a book called Unusual Hotels of the World. Published in 2013, it featured some crazy accommodations from ice hotels to one built from salt. There is an underwater bedroom where you need diving equipment to reach it. There is a rather dangerous ‘hotel’ which consists of hammocks strung 30 metres off the ground between giant trees in a forest. More conventional accommodation is found in a converted lighthouse on a windswept rock off the coast. There are quite a number of tree huts of various shapes and sizes. How about a floating aquarium to sleep in or a hotel on stilts in Switzerland or a bedroom located in a concrete pipe? However, there is a unique Kiwi accommodation that was not in the book. So far, the glass cabins known as ‘Purepods’, are only available in New Zealand. read more
