Created from 15,000 tons of snow and 500,000 tons of ice, the Hôtel de Glace actually needs to be rebuilt by a team of about 60 workers every winter, and only stays open from January to March. It's built by freezing ice around steel supports suspended by cranes, and then they add the doors, appliances, and furniture in afterwards.

The Winvian Cottages have a lot of unique properties on their expansive premises, but the most interesting by far is the Helicopter Cottage, which features a restored 1968 Sikorsky Sea King Pelican HH3F helicopter. The bed shares the hangar space with the helicopter, so you don't have to get too cozy.

Built into the side of a mountain, The Cappadocia Cave Resort doesn't just sport amazing panoramic views of the cavern-pocked Turkish countryside; it's a full service spa as well.

Constance Halaveli Resort & Spa is pretty much what everyone imagines when they think of an island paradise. The resorts are built on stilts above the crystal clear waters, and has pretty much everything you'd need to forget about your real life back home.

Designed by famous Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, the Benesse House is like a modern art museum with hotel rooms in it... or more accurately, a modern art museum where the hotel rooms are the exhibits unto themselves.

The Dream Hotel's ambiance is somewhere in between fantasy and futurism. The beds look as if they are levitating or resting on clouds. The hotel also has an amazing rooftop bar that looks over Central Park!
