For those who’ve never visited The Icehotel in Sweden, it is hard to comprehend and the photos don’t seem real.
A hotel and art exhibition made of ice from the river Torne, each year reincarnated in a brand new design. A place to discover silence, northern lights, glistening snow clad forests, reindeer, cloudberries, kettle coffee and much more.
Traveling to Sweden is always a pleasurable venture, but a visit to The Icehotel will add a mind-blowing experience to your travels. It’s a great excuse to don your best outerwear, after all, The Icehotel is located 200 kilometers (or about 125 miles) north of the Arctic Circle in the Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi! Don’t worry, they have warm rooms, too.
Little Kulala Camp
Namibia is a destination that has become quite popular in Africa for visitors ready to experience the beauty of an African safari but the Little Kulala Camp allows those visitors to enhance that experience with unique luxury accommodations.
Accommodation consists of 11 climate-controlled, thatched “kulalas” (the word means ‘to sleep’) which merge impeccably into the desert landscape, each with private plunge pool, both indoor and outdoor showers and a rooftop star bed for romantic star gazing. An elegant entertainment area includes a library, wine cellar, craft boutique, lounge and dining areas.
This must be experienced to be believed, it is a stunning hotel in an environment where you wouldn’t necessarily expect it.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island
The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is easily recognizable with their luxury huts out on the water – many with their own pools, but one of the most eye-catching elements of this gorgeous hotel is the underwater restaurant. You won’t sleep with the fishes here, rather, you’ll be dining among them. Conrad Hotels notes that their “resort delivers inspired experiences – from navigating aquatic gardens to swimming with whale sharks to undersea dining. Soak up the lush tropical surroundings and unwind to nature’s acoustics with mesmerizing cocktails, or take in a beautiful Maldivian sunset with a cruise on the Indian Ocean.” It’s also one of the most peace-inducing spas you’ll experience.
Hôtel du Petit Moulin
This hotel embodies what most of us think of when we think of a Parisian hotel and a truly French experience, but with a modern and chic twist – which, of course, makes it extremely Instagram-worthy. With each room unique, you’ll want to keep coming back to document more and more in your Instagram feed.
The Hotel du Petit Moulin is an authentic and secret hotel, steeped in history, where the air of the times feeds on the riches of the past. It was originally the oldest bakery in Paris, dating from the time of Henri IV. The facade renovated in 1900 is classified as a Historic Monument. The legend says that Victor Hugo, living on the Place des Vosges in the 17th century, came there to get his bread!
A little closer to home for most of us, the Hotel Emma is reason enough to visit San Antonio, Texas (though there are a multitude of other reasons, too).
A historical hotel, authentic and welcoming, Hotel Emma was once a 19th century Brewhouse. Now it’s an extraordinary 146-room riverfront hotel and the flagship for Pearl’s culinary and cultural community on the northern edge of downtown San Antonio. When you stay at Pearl’s Hotel Emma, you’ll experience San Antonio as if you are staying at the well-appointed home of extremely interesting friends, your visit peppered with warm social experiences, genuine cultural flavor, insider knowledge, and delightful surprises unique to the hotel, the neighborhood and the city.
