What do you think of when you think of travel? Do you think of faraway destinations and wonders to see? What if we told you your hotel could be a destination within itself? Hotels used to be just places you stayed when visiting elsewhere, but now, they have become destinations themselves.

There’s the Free Spirit Spheres hotel in Vancouver Island that features wooden orbs suspended from the trees. The pods are large enough to accommodate two people. The Capsule Hotel in Japan offers bed sized-pods instead of rooms. It saves space and cost in crowded, expensive cities.

The Spitbank Fort is a 138-year-old sea fort that has been transformed into a luxury hotel. The private island offers a perfect retreat from everyday life. However, it can only be reached by private boat.
