As convenient and comfortable as it can be to stay in a stand hotel while in holiday, it can be thrill for Indian travellers to try something new. Accommodations worldwide are constantly renovating their offerings and pushing things to the extreme to raise curiosity and entice more travellers to choose some of the more alternative places to stay.
Stay at the world's smallest hotel in Copenhagen
For instance, the world's smallest hotel recently opened its doors in Denmark. Indian travellers interested in a good story to be told after their Copenhagen holidays can try to reserve a stay at the Hotel Central & Cafe, but it only boasts one room. The amenities include a small sink, shower, bed and toilet, with access to the downstairs coffee shop that is also tiny - the bar only has five seats. Although the rate is not cheap, it can be worth the stay to check a stay at the world's littlest hotel off a travel bucket list.
Or try the largest in Las Vegas
On a much larger scale, Indian travellers can stay at the world' biggest hotel when they book their Las Vegas holiday packages. The Venetian, when paired with the Palazzo next door, has more than 8,100 rooms in three separate towers along the Strip. Not only is it massive, these accommodations are known for their lavish guests rooms, trendy nightclubs and stylish decor. Other hotel giants around the world include The Centaurus in Islamabad, the Izmailovo Hotel in Moscow and The First World Hotel in Pahang, Malaysia - all of which have more than 6,000 rooms each.
Other hotel greats
Travellers without a restricted budget can reserve a night or two at the Royal Residence suite in the Grand Hills Hotel. Located in Lebanon, this is said to be the largest hotel suite in the world, which is spread out over three floors and features bedrooms, parlors, separate dressing rooms and jacuzzis.
While tracking the most secluded hotel is the world may be difficult, there are plenty of options Indian travellers can choose off the beaten track. After a bumpy ride out to the Atacama Desert in Chile, for instance, guests will reach the Alto Atacama resort nestled in the valley of a scenic cliffside. It has plenty of modern amenities but is also free from the light pollution associated with major urban centres, making it a prime spot for stargazing and getting away from it all.
