Where to stay if you are looking for a bedroom with a difference...
May 5, 2020
Across the globe there are some incredible bedrooms and suites available to guests looking for something special. Think lavish suites with huge volumes of space, double vanity sinks in marble bathrooms, roaring log fireplaces in the sumptuous living rooms, walk-in wardrobes to get lost in and balconies adorned with hot-tubs and mountain or sea views. There are a select number of bedrooms to stay in that are different from the unadulterated luxury. That might be because of a unique location, a slide down into the sea from your private water villa or floor to ceiling 360 degree views of the savannah. Below you will find a rundown of some of our picks of unique places to stay if you are looking for a bedroom with a difference…
The world’s first underwater suite! The Muraka at The Conrad at Rangali Island throws the rulebook out the window.

This two level residence has a dedicated speedboat to take you to and from the main resort, private jet skis and a master bedroom to better any other. The master bedroom is almost five metres under sea level accessed by a spiral staircase, with floor to ceiling windows to watch the sea life swim past when you wake in the mornings.

Watch the Monaco Grand Prix from the luxury of your hotel room. At the Fairmont Monte Carlo in the exclusive Côte d’Azur area of Southern France guests staying in the Fairmont Hairpin Rooms are greeted with an exclusive view from their terrace. This room overlooks the tight hairpin turn that is known as one of the most exciting in Grand Prix racing and one of the tightest on the circuit.

Stay in the rainforest in Rwanda. That is a very brief summary of the Nyungwe rooms at the One&Only Nyungwe House in the Nyungwe Forest National Park. The rooms are set between the tea plantations and the canopy of the rainforest, guests staying here can stroll out from their bedroom onto their large private balcony, watch the wildlife and feel completely immersed. Keep your eyes peeled for the jungle’s many rare birds as well as the more mischievous mangabey and colobus monkeys. Alternatively lie in the deep soaking bathtub and listen to the chorus of jungle life.

Water villas in the Maldives have become somewhat iconic over the past few years and those at the Sovena Jani are some of the most impressive. Many social media posts have shown these with the slides from the villas heading down into the brilliant blue waters of the Indian Ocean. At the Soneva Jani the choice of one to four bedroom villas with slides is definitely unique. In the master bedrooms of the one, two and three bedroom villas the roof is retractable so that guests can stargaze before nodding off to sleep each evening.
