Here are some great spots that will instill memories into the back of your mind from the beautiful and amazing scenery created and designed by mother natures very own artistic touch, which go great with the construction.

Hydropolis Underwater Hotel in Dubai

Joachim Hauser, developer and designer of the Hydropolis hotel which is built on land belonging to the Crown Prince of Dubai, General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. If this is not something new for you, then I don't know what is.

An underwater hotel to make you feel that much closer to the wildlife. Right in their very own habitat, this unique hotel is one of a kind and guaranteed to give you a new experience. Located partly below the surface of the Persian Gulf right off of Jumeirah beach.

The lounging area, kitchen, etc.. is upstairs above the water level in U.F.O. saucer shaped buildings. A stunningly lighted wooden dock leads you up to your quarters for your stay. Development costs running roughly €550m, this spot gives a whole new meaning to "sleeping with the fishes". Prices range up to $5500 a night, it even provides hotel security by a missile defense system.

It's an airplane and also a Hotel in Costa Rica!

Right on the corners of Manuel Antonio National Park this Costa Verde Costa Rican resort suite is a real airplane. For those who have always dreamed of having an actual bed on those so very long flights, your wish has come true, only this Boeing 747 from 1965 doesn't fly anymore.

The hotel suite contains 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an ocean view terrace and a kitchenette. The surrounding jungle habitat has monkeys living freely which are sure to provide a beautiful wildlife experience.

At $375 a night, anyone can try it out. At 50 feet above the beach you may even feel like your flying in this luxury hotel suite. This is surely one vacation spot you must travel to.

Liberty Hotel in Boston, Previously, City Jail

The name Liberty fits perfect to a luxury hotel which used to accommodate unusual guests, free of charge. Right in downtown historic Beacon Hill, this beauty was once the unluxurious Charles Street Jail.

However since it's opening in recent years it has become one of the must-visit hotels for anyone in the area. A tiny $150,000,000 renovation / reconstruction and it's ready for action with 300 rooms, or should they be called cells? Catwalks are still a part of the hotel connecting main visiting areas, hotel bar, 24 hr fitness area and lobby.

As well as vestiges of jail cells and the very large windows. So now, it's possible to pay to go to jail instead of paying to get out, unless you get carried away and run up a huge tab at the bar of course...

Bubble Hotel

Pierre Stephane Dumas was the inventor, and creator of this design which allows it's visitors to gaze at the stars from below without worrying about the mosquitoes or snakes that will keep you up at night.

Pressurized domes will cost you about $400 for a one night stay, and are currently only available in europe. A luxury hotel? or a luxurious tent? Either way it's the ultimate level of camping if you got the bucks to give it a shot.

There is even a cocoon model for those of you who would like a little more privacy out in the open woods. The top of the bubble dome tent is still open to the big blue sky, but the sides all around are covered so nobody can see out, or in.

Snowy Igloo Hotel Kakslauttanen

Located within the Arctic circle right in Saariselkä fell area by Urho Kekkonen national park. Log cabins and Glass igloos which remain at room temperature guarantee you don't chatter your teeth out.

A smoke sauna and several restaurants on property give you everything you need within distance to enjoy the arctic hotel. The airport is only 35 km away and hotel transportation is provided to and from the front door of the hotel.

During the winter, you can choose to stay in a traditional snow igloo if you prefer, giving you the full experience as you can admire the Northern Lights just like a real eskimo! Special Honeymoon chambers are available for newlywed couples and even a chapel for those not-yet-wed. Husky, reindeer, and ski safaris are offered along with ice fishing and cross country skiing.

As for the young ones, Santas Resort is sure to give them the happiest christmas ever where Santa Claus himself stays year round. The hotel lets them pan for gold with the elves, or even drive a reindeer sleigh.

      Awesome. You should include the desert hotel in Chile completely made of solar panels. Its featured in one the previous James Bond during the final battle. And that hotel that is completely made of ice for a few days only at the end of the year.
