Is the offer of an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet just not impressing you anymore?

These unique properties offer something extraordinary, from infinity pools suspended above the jungle, to a floating suite in the ocean, and a bed 155m deep in a silver mine. Below are incredible accommodations around the world that are destinations in themselves...

The Treehotel in Sweden has a number of unique rooms nestled amongst the treetops in the forest, but the Mirrorcube room deserves to be singled out for being downright stealthy, with the mirrored exterior reflecting the stunning surrounds.

Like something out of a fairytale, or The Hobbit, rooms are built into this volcano shaped hotel that has a waterfall cascading down its side. Bonus points for the "jacuzzis" formed from giant tree trunks.

Gaze at the spectacular Northern Lights without leaving bed! The Kakslauttanen glass igloos boast warmth and comfort as well as a great view of the Aurora Borealis. One major drawback: You have to leave the igloo to go to the bathroom (but new en suite igloos are being added for next winter).

Juvet Landscape Hotel - Norddal, Norway

It's all about the Star Beds at Loisaba Wilderness: A bed that can be wheeled out of its raised hut onto an open deck, so guests can spend a night under the stars, and wake to an unforgettable panoramic view.

Amangiri Resort - Utah, USA
