The Manta Resort, Zanzibar

sky,sea,horizon,ocean,body of water, Guests can choose whether they want to sleep on a private floating island's top deck while catching a tan or snore their little heads off some four meters below the surface of the sea, surrounded by tropical fish. The Manta Resort in Zanzibar is certainly one of the most unusual places to wake up in and seems to belong in a Bond movie rather than a vacation resort.


Sala Silvermine, Sweden

formation, The Sala Silvermine boasts a 300 year old hall that is the deepest hotel room in the world. Situated 155 meters below the surface, you'll feel like one of Tolkien's dwarves sleeping in this hand-carved room without a view. If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is one of the places you'd rather wake up in than your bedroom: so far below the surface, there's no traffic noise whatsoever.


The Crazy House, Vietnam

geological phenomenon,demolition,earthquake, The Crazy House looks like an architectural joke concocted by Salvador Dali and Antonio Gaudi. Decorated with expressionist elements that remind one of Gaudi's work in Barcelona in Spain, this unique vacation home may give you nightmares rather than a good night's sleep!


Kerala Backwaters Houseboats, India

long tail boat,boat,sea,vehicle,watercraft rowing, Let the gorgeous landscapes of India's Kerala region float past your window at a leisurely pace, while you sip your coconut milk and go to sleep in this traditional houseboat.

As much as I love to see my garden every morning when I get up, I’d happily swap it for a room with a view at any of these places. Where’s your favorite?
