Cool Underground Hotels Around the World
Sometimes life above ground can get busy and boring- it’s crowded, hot, stuffy. Sometimes you just need a break from the insanity. If you are like most people and can’t afford to fly yourself into space, try heading in the other direction- underground! These underground hotels can help you do just that:
Kokopelliâ€™s Cave Bed and Breakfast
Farmington, New Mexico, U.S.A.
This cave dwelling was blasted out of a mountain. This 1,650 square foot, one-bedroom cave home was made from a 65-million year old sandstone formation high above the La Plata River. It is furnished with plush carpeting, Southwestern style furniture, hot and cold running water, a kitchen, washer/dryer, cascading waterfall-style shower, and a hot tub. Being underground has never been more luxurious. Not only are you underground but your high above it too. How often does that happen?
Otorohanga, New Zealand
Woodlyn Park has a variety of unusual hotels. Their underground rooms are modeled after the Hobbit homes from Lord of the Rings, allowing you to live like Frodo would. These are all self-contained with kitchens and can accommodate between 2-10 people. Having been built using polystyrene blocks, they are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Since New Zealand is still seeing a boom from the movies, these places are popular- advance booking is essential.
Beckham Creek Cave Haven
Eureka Springa, Arkansas, U.S.A.
This secluded cave dwelling is a truly unique experience. Luxurious and totally secluded, it makes for a comfortable and relaxing vacation. There are plenty of outdoor activities in the surrounding areas or you sit in the underground Jacuzzi all day. No matter what you do, staying here is a unique experience.
This hotel is located in the town of Urgup in Turkey. The hotel provides a complex of three 7-room bed and breakfast pensions and a 2-bedroom suite clustered together.
