When you have a bed from where you can gaze at the night sky and a private terrace with a panoramic view that stretches from Lake Geneva to the Alps, do you need anything else?

Stay is a vital part of your holiday experience. A local stay that incorporates culture and beauty of the place to craft an experience is a preferred choice. Tree houses, lighthouses, windmills or glamping experiences are some of the options to reckon. Listed below are a few ideas:

Under A Blanket Of Stars

The Aurora Borealis is unpredictable and can be very short lived. Since it appears late in the evening, an open to sky or transparent accommodation, decked with luxurious bedding to keep you warm, renders the experience magical. Iceland offers free standing, inflatable bubble — a set-up featuring a clear plastic shell, which allows unparalleled viewing of the dazzling phenomena.

Into The Outdoors

Switzerland’s pop-up hotel project features accommodations that come with a fresh twist and make the most of beautiful Swiss outdoor. One such, among the many themes, is a cylindrical glass tent, which seamlessly embraces the breathtaking surroundings of Lausanne. Book ahead as these limited accommodations and are available in select seasons only.

In Iceland, transparent chambers mimicking bubbles allow a glimpse of the Northern Lights while in bed.

Off The Edge Adventure

Peru is perfect to bounce from one adventure to another. While Machu Picchu is renowned, club your visit with a stay at ‘edgiest’ hotel which allows you to sleep hanging off a twelve-hundred-foot cliff overlooking the famous Sacred Valley.

Embrace The Ocean

A cruise holiday is an epitome of luxury. Apart from the usual facilities aboard, high-end cruise liners come with enormous suites decked with plush amenities. These special suites sit on the top deck of the ship, allowing the best views onboard. From Alaska to the Amazon and the Mediterranean to Arabia...go ahead and pick your route. For an ultimate rendezvous with luxury, European cruise liners that blend traditional features with modern technology and offer fun land excursions are a top choice.
