We love exploring new places and destinations; there’s nothing better than the thrill of arriving somewhere new and getting stuck in! Take these three enticing new arrivals to Host Unusual – each not only offers incredibly original accommodation, but is also situated in compelling locations that just beg exploration. Whether it’s mesmerising cave accommodation in enchanting Cappadocia, Turkey – one of the world’s truly original landscapes, adventures in the deep forests of Lower Saxony in Germany where stilted treehouses await, or spacious safari tents set on a blissful beach on one of Indonesia’s idyllic Gili Islands, we’ve got your next unique voyage of discovery covered.
Rustic chic meets ancient caves in one of Turkey’s most captivating places – the stunning landscape of Cappadocia. Step inside your historic cave house (above and main picture) amongst the ‘faith chimneys’ of this incredible destination, and you’ll realise instantly that this is a truly special place. Blending exotic touches of Turkey with eco-friendly Dutch influences, thanks to owner Dervis’ time spent in Holland, the result is a unique and sustainable holiday experience with all the style and sophistication of a hotel. Perhaps book the indulgent King Suite Room, with a lounge, fireplace and private terrace with sensational views, as well as antique lamps, rugs and authentic furniture. Watching the sun set behind the fascinating rock formations and distant mountains from one of the three terraces on offer is a must.
With all the fairytale charm of the brothers Grimm story Hansel & Gretel, deep in the forests of the Lower Saxony region of Germany lies Hidden Treehouse Resort, an idyllic outdoor retreat with no shortage of five star sophistication. Think designer bathrooms, underfloor heating, stylish Miele appliances and more. Each house has a unique cubic design and natural-scented larch cladding, meaning they blend effortlessly with the green environment. This is an area steeped with wildlife; you may even spy deer roaming underneath your treehouse, making it the ultimate choice for nature lovers, and you can relax and enjoy a picnic breakfast from the comfort of your own private deck, listening to birdsong and enjoying occasional visits from squirrels.
The glamping trend has well and truly reached Asia, with some seriously sophisticated retreats opening that combine sleeping under canvas with sublime Asian hospitality – not to mention some of the finest tropical settings on earth! Karma Reef is a perfect example of this and we are overjoyed to bring this blissful beachfront retreat into our portfolio. The small island of Gili Meno is a delightfully traffic-free natural marine paradise – and what better base than one of these luxurious safari lodge style tents, fully air-conditioned and just steps from the white powdery sands? These sea tents also come with their own private terrace and ocean views. Or perhaps you’d prefer a traditional ‘Lumbung’ – a two-storey sanctuary topped with an unusual Indonesian thatched roof. Both options at Karma Reef share the same trait of being utterly unforgettable.
