Unusual accommodation

For a special occasion, a change or a rest, spending some time in a hotel that has the WOW factor has got to be an exciting option! So why not consider a stay in one of the World’s most unusual hotels – a tree house, an underwater lodge or even a Trojan horse!

Here are just a few of the most unusual hotels available across the globe, giving a change to traditional self-catering or all-inclusive high rise hotel or apartments usually found on the two week summer break.

Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa, Australia
Offering a choice of 15 tree top villas in a tropical, living rainforest - and world heritage site - in Australia is the Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa. This stunning hotel provides all the comforts and luxuries of a boutique hotel.

Ice-hotel in Jukkasjarvi
Probably one of the most famous WOW hotels of the world is Sweden’s ice-hotel in Jukkasjarvi! Established 22 years ago, it started life as a mere igloo and is now the world’s largest ice hotel. The hotel is only open from December until April and coincides nicely with the amazing Northern Lights.

La Balade des Gnomes in Durby, Belgium
If you're ooking for a fairytale hotel, then check out the Trojan Horse suite in the La Balade des Gnomes in Durby, Belgium. All the rooms are the creation of the hotel's architect owner. There's an amazing choice of fairytale inspired rooms,including a boat room which actually bobs gently in a swimming pool.

German is the Baumhaus Hotel
Believed to be the first tree house hotel in Eastern German is the Baumhaus Hotel. Surrounded by an adventure park the rooms are inspired by folk and fairy tale; mixed up with weird and wonderful decoration and all without a straight line in site. Even the beds are topsy-turvy but guarantee a good night’s sleep, plus all the comforts and amenities of any good hotel!

Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Florida
Jules’ Undersea Lodge is a former research laboratory, in the heart of Key Largo in the sunshine state of Florida. This hotel is very unusual – an underwater haven. To arrive, guests need to scuba dive through the Emerald lagoon. A perfect choice for water loving holiday makers.

Holiday extras

Whether you choose to go for weird, wacky and wonderful accommodation or plan to take the more conventional route, don’t forget those important holiday extras that can often be overlooked!

Travel insurance – essential, not only to insure your belongings but you and your family too!

Meet and Greet Valet Parking- forget the hassle of off-site car parks and extra travelling time, drive straight to the airport and check-in whilst your car is parked for you.

Foreign Currency – book this in advance and get more for your money than often uncompetitive rates at the airport.
