Unique Hotels


A sojourn these days would involve a standout lodging that makes all the difference from an enjoyable journey to an extraordinary one and some of these unique hotels are probably the reason that provides the impetus and trigger to finally make that journey. Disagree? Look no further below....

Kachi Lodge, Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

Why We Love It:

The new game-changer that will change the way you journey to the Salar de Uyuni salt flats in Bolivia - where it come a long way in redefining the style and panache of how to experience the world's largest salt flats. The Kachi Lodge with its futuristic geodesic domes resembles pods on a space station outpost under the star-lit skies right at the foot of the Tunupa Volcano. It's green eco-friendly concepts while not compromising on luxury and comfort endears us completely.  

Best Time To Visit:

Depending on what you are looking for, it's surreal both during the dry season (April through October) and the wet season when you can paddleboard out from camp in the shallow waters that creates the effect of the largest "mirror" in the world. We prefer the dry season for the sheer amount of activities that can be done - hiking, biking, outdoor campfire to immerse in some of the most alien-esque landscapes on Planet Earth.

Sao Lourenco do Barrocal, Monsaraz, Portugal

Why We Love It:

Right in the heart of the Alentejo region close to the white village of Monsaraz, the Sao Lourenco do Barrocal is a farm retreat quite in its own league. Minimalist decor allows for an unpretentious experience that are well-complemented with its exceptional cuisine, its blend of wines and the authentic "gaucho" way of life that are never commercialized. Quite the experience for us is to take a Lusitano "the ferrari of horses" into the stunning Alqueva Lake admiring Monsaraz from a distance. 

Best Time To Visit:

Sublime in spring and autumn and while summer has scorching temperatures (July - August), the sun seemingly doesn't set, allowing for an unbelievable amount of daylight to enjoy. We love autumn in the Alentejo the most for its festivities of wine-harvesting, the spectacular colors of cork and olive trees in stunning autumn hues, the pleasant and cooler weather that makes the Alentejo such an incredible region to enjoy.

Shipwreck Lodge, Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Why We Love It:

10 "shipwreck" cabins spread out among the sand dunes with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean in between the Hoarusib and Hoanib rivers in an untamed landscape of raw, rugged wilderness that only the Skeleton Coast of Namibia can inspire. All of the "shipwreck" cabins are solar-powered except for the wood burning stove for chilly evenings during the winter dry season. But sustainability and design does not go wrong in one of the most unique lodges in Africa. 

Best Time To Visit:

Undoubtedly the dry season from May to September. The weather can be cold but you'll stay dry and pleasant during the heat of the winter day which can still reach temperatures of up to 25 degrees celsius and more. The less treacherous waves of the Atlantic Ocean also enables a more enjoyable experience as well as the surrounding desert-adapted wildlife which roams in the Skeleton Coast National Park.
