Giraffe Manor, Kenya
The African safari is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, but you really can double down on that at Kenya’s Giraffe Manor in the country’s capital of Nairobi. It’s taking an exotic break to the next level, with the beautiful 1930s manor spreading over 140 acres. It’s a truly luxurious place to stay and perfect for the likes of honeymoons or landmark birthdays.
However, it’s the herd of giraffes at the manor that really steal the show, interacting with the guests and even poking their head through the windows if you leave it open for too long. It’s an incredible place to stay, with you even having the option to dine with the animals. If you’re an animal lover, it’s the ultimate themed hotel.
The Venetian, USA
Venice is one of the most romantic places on earth, so to find it in the heart of the Nevada desert as well is pretty special. Las Vegas has dozens of themed hotels and casinos, but it’s The Venetian that really stands out ahead of the rest.
For casino lovers, and let’s face it, there are plenty of you given the popularity of online casino games and online slots currently, a trip to Vegas is like no other. There are thousands upon thousands of slot games up and down the strip, but for that bit of magic, why not stay at The Venetian.
It’s themed perfectly, with replicas of the Grand Canal, St Mark’s Square, and plenty of great Italian food. It’s Italian luxury done in true Vegas fashion. What’s not to love about that?
Silver Mine Hotel, Sweden
Ever fancied staying a staggering 508ft below ground? Well you can in The Silver Mine Hotel, officially the world’s deepest hotel room. Located in a 17th century silver mine, the hotel is one of the most unique on the planet and you can enjoy a tour of the mine simply reaching your room.
There are stunning spiral staircases that lead to cavernous halls, as well as some exquisite dining areas and underground lakes. It truly is a marvel. Located in Sala, about an hour and a half’s drive from Stockholm, it’s well worth heading out of the capital to spend a night or two at.
Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort’s Igloos, Finland
Ice hotels and igloos have long been popular, but they’re still providing a memorable and unique experience, offering romance and adventure in abundance. None more so than Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland.
There’s no better place to stay during Northern Lights season, offering up unobstructed views of the incredible night sky, while you kick back and lie in bed. There really is nothing like it.
Udaivilas Palace, India
India is well-known for its palaces, but while you can’t stay at the Taj Mahal, you can enjoy a stay at Udaivilas Palace, a palace originally built for royalty. Situated on the banks of Lake Pichola, the opulent palace includes luxurious villas, private pools and mouth-watering fine dining.
If you want to live like a King or Queen, then consider this the destination for you.
