Travel is all about the stunning sights you see and the fascinating cultures you get to experience for sure. But it’s as much about where you lay your head as the places you explore during the day.

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, Maldives
Sprawled across two islands in the jewel-toned Indian Ocean is the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort.
The Maldives, with its stunning array of more than 1,000 coral islands, is famous for its marine life and stunning underwater wonders.
At Conrad Maldives, the highlight is the Muraka underwater suite, which provides a 180-degree view of the vibrant marine life. While the underwater world mesmerizes during the day, by night, guests can dine under the stars, making it an island experience that’s both above and below the horizon.
Treehotel, Harad, Sweden
Located in the forests of northern Sweden, the Treehotel treehouse hotel offers an array of modern, architecturally stunning cabins perched in the branches of towering pine trees.
Each unit has its own distinctive design, ranging from the iconic Mirrorcube to the whimsical UFO. Suspended among the tall pines, guests can enjoy pristine views and the enchanting beauty of the Lule River.
Icehotel, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden
Deep within the Arctic Circle, in the small village of Jukkasjärvi, lies the world-renowned Icehotel. As the world’s first hotel made entirely of ice and snow, Icehotel is rebuilt annually, presenting fresh architectural wonders each year.
From December to April, guests can experience sleeping in thermal sleeping bags on beds made of ice blocks covered with reindeer hides. Each suite is a masterpiece, meticulously carved by international artists.
The hotel also offers an array of winter activities, from dog sledding to witnessing the ethereal northern lights. To complement the icy surroundings, there’s an Icebar where drinks are served in glasses made of ice. And for those looking for some warmth, the hotel also features warm rooms and a sauna to provide a perfect balance.
Henn na Hotel, Japan
Imagine being greeted by a robot receptionist, having your bags carried by a robot porter, and using facial recognition technology instead of a room key. Welcome to the Henn na Hotel chain, with various locations across Japan.
Henn na, which translates to “strange” in English, boasts of being the world’s first hotel staffed by robots. Upon entering, guests are welcomed by a multilingual dinosaur robot at the reception.
The hotel’s designs are futuristic and minimalist, complementing the high-tech theme. And while robots are the primary staff, human employees are always present to ensure a seamless experience.
