Booking.com Shares Five Stays With Out of This World ‘Beds’ to Celebrate World Sleep Day
World Sleep Day is celebrated across the globe on March 18 and is an important day to highlight the relevance of a good night’s sleep. The day intends to draw attention to sleep-related issues with this year’s theme focusing on quality sleep, a sound mind and a happy world.
According to Booking.com research, almost half (44%) of Indian travellers say that sleeping in helps them disconnect from their day-to-day routine and feel rejuvenated. On the occasion of World Sleep Day, as things start to go back to a new kind of ‘normal’, Booking.com, the leading travel brand, has curated a list of five properties with unique beds that provide travellers with the dreamiest sleeping experience. From a star bed to sleep directly under the stars in India to a bed made of salt blocks in Bolivia, there is a bed type for every type of traveller (and sleeper!).
The Adventure Suites in North Conway, New Hampshire is a themed hotel with exclusive bedrooms for every kind of adventure. From an oyster shaped bed that makes you feel like a mermaid under the sea, to a round king-size bed with overhead candles inspired by Roman Ruins, guests will find themselves dozing off to enjoy a good night’s sleep in a fun and unique setting that is sure to inspire some adventurous dreaming. This one-of-a-kind property is perfect for families, couples or a bigger group of friends.
Located at the Pench National Park, Jamtara Wilderness Camp offers a unique experience to travellers. Each luxury tent here is designed to make travellers feel one with nature, but it's the Star Bed that’s a must try. These "machans"—built on stilts to accommodate a double four-poster bed for two— are set up on a local farmer's land. They can be booked for a night under the stars and most of the revenue generated is given back to the farmer. Together with local communities, the accommodation offers authentic wildlife, natural and starry experiences. One can gaze at the fields and wildlife during the day and up at the constellations at night for an unforgettable stay.
Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat and is also considered to be one of the most incredible travel experiences in South America. To enjoy this salt experience to the fullest, what better way than to wake up with the breathtaking views of the salt flats every morning and sleep in an accommodation that is entirely made of salt blocks? Hotel de Sal Luna Salada is a perfect place to stay to experience this, with rooms overlooking the Uyuni salt mine, and if that isn’t unique enough, guests can even sleep in a bed made of salt blocks.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, Maldives
Travellers can beat the heat and head to the luxurious Conrad Maldives Rangali Island that offers spacious private villas with beds submerged beneath the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. The bed is a part of the accommodation’s undersea residence - first in the world, called The Muraka. It is a luxurious 2-level residence with a master bedroom submerged over 16 feet below sea level. Guests can tuck into a comfortable bed encased in acrylic and watch the passing sea life swim by.
Who said that sleeping in a bed shaped like a car is only for kids? Whether a car enthusiast or not, waking up in the comfort of an actual restored car is sure to make for a memorable travel experience. Set on the grounds of the historic Cologne Butzweilerhof Airport, V8 Hotel Köln at MOTORWORLD offers unique rooms with different car models transformed into beds, making this automobile themed hotel a perfect stay for travellers of all ages who are looking to stay in something unusual.
