BIZZARE HOTELS IN THE WORLD by Carmelo Tianzon

Magic Mountain Hotel, Huilo Reserve, Chile

1.pngDeep in southern Chile lies the Montana Magica Lodge – an extraordinary hotel hidden away in the centre of a 300,000-acre private nature reserve.This hotel is also known as .Montana Magica Lodge is a sight to behold.  As its own website puts it, there may be no better “reminder of the majesty of Mother Nature.” It is depicted as a strange volcano-like building spews water instead of lava; its welcoming windows adorned with moss and vines, complementing the surrounding trees. As you could see in the image given it looks like the kind of place the blue folk from Avatar might hook up with Hobbits and Ewoks to go on a holiday. But this is neither Pandora, Middle-Earth nor the Star Wars forest moon of Endor.

Attrap Reves, France

Ever thought about literally living (and sleeping) in a bubble?

5.pngThe innovative Attrap’Reves hotel consists of habitable plastic bubble domes and was built using recyclable materials.These transparent “spheres” are maintained by a silent blower, which continuously allows fresh air to get in and keep a high level of oxygen.Unlike more common outdoor adventures (such as sleeping in a tent), these intriguing bubbles come with an ingenious developing concept, allowing visitors to spend the night under the clear skies, without experimenting any drawbacks like bad weather, insects or humidity.

Catering on site is also possible, A stay here is priced from 109 euros in low season for two persons, telescope with star chart included.The names of the bubbles-like units are revealing; Zen, Nature, Glamour, 1001 nights or Chic & Design. Our favorite is Nature, with its grass flooring and remote location.
