If you’re a traveller, you’re already familiar with the insatiable desire to delve into the deepest corners of the planet and explore the unexplored. Now this doesn’t only have to apply to the wilderness; some of us with a taste for the finer things in life wouldn’t mind exploring a few man made wonders—because they’re just as beautiful too. Like these offbeat hotel rooms that make for as much of an experience as the cities they’re located in. Have a look.
Icehotel, Sweden
 

Icehotel, Sweden

Loved the Frozen castle? Well, this is what its interiors look like. From the pillars to the couches to the chandeliers, everything is made from ice and snow. The rooms are available seasonally for obvious reasons, and the interiors are reconstructed every winter. So each guest has his own unique experience.

Whitepod Eco-Luxury Hotel, Switzerland

If you loved the much hyped about Igloo hotel in Finland, this one's just as good if not more luxurious. Situated in the Swiss Alps, these ecopods are designed for those with a finer taste for things in life, who appreciate a good view but also care for other luxuries. Staying here could cause a slight dent in your wallet, but none that the experience of it couldn't make up for.

Panda Inn, China
 

Panda Inn, China

Love pandas? So do they! So much that there's literally one creeping out of every corner in the room. Even the host welcomes you wearing a panda suit and you suddenly know the superlative for cute—creepy! Kidding! They're harmless little stuffed animals that'd sure make for some great Instagram photos.

Royal Houseboats, India
 

Royal Houseboats, India

For some exotic royal feels right in the middle of ‘Heaven on Earth’, houseboats are your answer. This is where royalty comes at an affordable price, with the interiors made of exotic woods and with butlers and private shikara riders available right at your boat-step. You're sure to be humbled by the experience.

Montaña Mágica Lodge, Chile
 

Montaña Mágica Lodge, Chile

Based on an ancient legend that tells tales of a giant mountain granting wishes, this 13-room guesthouse will have you wondering if it’s actually true. Situated in the midst of the Huilo Huilo Biológical Reserve, its exteriors are that of a rainforest with interiors so dark and woodsy, they remind you of the Hobbits. Definitely worth a visit if you like waking up to a waterfall, literally pouring on your head.
