The Levitating Beds, James Bond Stylings of Hotel 7

From the creative force behind The Five Hotel, a funky boutique property in the Latin Quarter of Paris, comes accommodations that are two better: The Seven Hotel.

Like it’s two-poorer cousin, each room and suite at The Seven Hotel is individually designed. What’s new is the level funkiness, the unusualness room features—and the levitating beds.

Negril’s Affordable, Unlikely, Resort

We’re not sure what the antithesis of a freewheeling Caribbean beach experience would be, but a faux European castle has to come close. Yet, somehow, those two opposites successfully come together in the unlikely Blue Cave Castle Resort.

The Luxurious Airplane Suite in the Costa Rica Jungle

Were you to spot the plane from the beach below you could be forgiven for believing it had crash-landed there, like a scene from some Costa Rican version of 'Lost'

At the Stockholm airport there’s a hotel in a refurbished Boeing 747. An airplane hotel at an airport—we can see some logic in that. But what’s a Boeing 727 surrounded by thick jungle, overlooking the Pacific in Costa Rica, doing doubling as a hotel?

Yurt “Camping” on the California Coast

You like camping but your partner prefers more glamorous travel. The solution? Glamping. Glamorous camping. Like that on offer at the The Treebones Resort.

Treebones, located on California’s scenic Big Sur coast, is a resort that offers the perfect romantic getaway for you both. Accommodations here are in yurts, large circular tents originally the domain of Central Asian nomads and made of sheepskin.

The World’s Largest Swimming Pool

The resort also has a massive indoor pool complete with waterfalls, jet massages and a beach with heated sand.

You know a swimming pool is big when an average swimmer is unable to complete a single lap within it. And when this swimmer is likely to be passed by a sailboat while trying.

Simply Luxurious Hawaii Beach Huts

The idea of staying in a thatched hut on a tropical beach has nearly universal appeal—the beauty of it, the seclusion, the connection to nature, the lack of televisions and telephones and hectic bustle of life, the napping in hammocks to the sound of the waves, the perfect beaches and swims in the ocean . . . what’s not to like?

Well, for one thing most thatched huts don’t have indoor plumbing. Or outdoor plumbing. Or electricity. Or a bed devoid of sand bugs, to say nothing of a private whirlpool or a location near a superb spa and romantic restaurant.

For a stay in a thatched hut that doesn’t feel like you are taking part in an endurance contest or an episode of Survivor there’s the Kona Village Resort on the northwest coast of Hawaii Island.

The Hotel That WAS Above Paris

Staying at the Hotel Everland feels like spending the night in a 1970s shagadelic bachelor pad.

There aren’t many hotels that might have traveled more around Europe than its guests. Then again there’s no hotel like the one-room Everland.

This pre-fab capsule, designed by a pair of Swiss artists who cryptically go by L/B (Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann), was built to be mobile. After stints at Zurich’s Expo.02, on the Shores of Lake Neuchatel in Switzerland, and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Leipzig, Germany the Everland is now atop the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. At its current location this hotel might have the best Eiffel Tower view of any in the city.
