5 Of The Most Spectacular Hotels Around The World

There are hundreds of thousands of hotels across the globe. Everywhere you go, you’re likely to see dozens of hotels varying in quality and rank – from motels to five-star hotels and resorts. We’ve all had our share of blood-curdling motel experiences, but not everyone has had the chance to experience luxurious, high-quality hotels such as the ones you’ll find out about below. Read on, and see why you need to put at least one of these hotels on your bucket list.

It’s very important to carefully plan your perfect getaway, so do your research thoroughly. Your chosen hotel is your first impression of wherever you’re going, and if it stinks your trip probably will too, so choose wisely.

1. The Bellagio, Las Vegas

    If you were traveling throughout the Americas, a great choice would be the Bellagio in Las Vegas, a five-star hotel owned by one of the industry’s most renowned entrepreneurs, Steve Wynn. Although it is best known for its perfect location on the Strip, the Bellagio is also admired for its whopping thirty-six-story architecture and the custom-built auditorium where incredible shows are staged for guests.

    The Bellagio allows its guests to choose from a plethora of restaurants within and nearby, utilizing the complimentary $150 dinner credit that is offered with its many luxurious packages. As if it couldn’t get any better, you can continue to build your relationship with the Bellagio after your stay, as it offers catering and banquet services and a wedding venue. Talk about heaven on Earth!

    2. Atlantis, Dubai

      In Dubai, travelers can enjoy an experience they will never forget at the Atlantis: a luxurious five-star hotel located at the reputable Palm Jumeirah Island. The Atlantis is most popular for the unique, underwater suites that are available to guests, allowing them to be completely exposed to the numerous wonders of the waters surrounding them.

      It offers more than twenty upscale restaurants for its guests to choose from, as well as kids’ clubs, nightclubs and even its very own waterpark.

        If a woodsy landscape sounds more relaxing to you, don’t fret! A simple trip to the gorgeous Catalonia region of Spain can transport you into an exceptional and utterly natural experience at the Cabenes Als Arbres resort.

        The Cabenes Als Arbres is named after what it offers to its visitors – cabins in the trees. These strategically built cabins offer seclusion and peace, allowing guests to fully enjoy the diversity and natural rhythm and perspective of nature in its purest form.

        Guests can further explore the natural beauty of the land’s mountains and nearby museums. At the Cabenes Als Arbres, every night ends peacefully as guests are engulfed in the starry night sky they can view from their cabins.

          If you really want to make an unforgettable memory, consider a trip to Indonesia. It is home to another resort that uses the natural elements around it to highlight its experience: the Ubud Hanging Gardens, located within the Balinese jungle. It is surrounded by a series of volcanoes, terraces and copious plant life.

          In addition to the many sights available to enjoy, the Hanging Gardens also feature what has been named the “World’s Best Swimming Pool” on more than one occasion. The private villas and reflexology areas provide a calming, comfortable environment that’s perfect for individuals and families alike.

          5. Iglu-Dorf, Switzerland

            If you’re used to a very warm climate or just enjoy the feel of a constant cool breeze, the Iglu-Dorf hotel in Switzerland might be just what you’re looking for. As the name suggests, the entire hotel is an igloo – made completely out of ice and snow.

            During their stay, guests can visit the Walking-rope Park; explore a wide array of ice sculptures and art, bungee jump and much more. And even if you aren’t particularly fond of cold weather, there are, of course, hot springs and saunas to regulate your body temperature.

            Everyone needs a break from reality sometimes, and everyone deserves one. These brief moments of peace and tranquility are what drive us to push through the harder stints in life. Make your vacation one to remember by taking a risk – whether it’s to sleep in an underwater room, near a volcano, in an igloo, or something even better. You won’t know what you’re missing until you find out, so good luck and bon voyage!

            10 Simple Morning Exercises That Will Make You Feel Great All Day

            10 Simple Morning Exercises That Will Make You Feel Great All Day

            There are lots of studies that show if you do some exercise in the morning, you will be in a better mood all day long. You will have more energy and you will certainly be a better colleague, friend or partner.

            One psychologist at Duke University has researched the effects of exercise on depressed patients and he has come to the conclusion that exercise has a definite role in treating this condition and has an important role in preventing people from relapsing.[1] According to the New York Times, scientists have now established that exercise also boosts your brain power.[2]

            In addition, there are studies from the Appalachian State University which show that blood pressure can be reduced by doing regular morning exercise.[3]

            Here are 10 simple morning exercises that will help you feel great the whole day long. You can include some of them in your morning exercise routine or do them all at home without having to enrol in a gym. Consult your doctor before starting any form of exercise routine if you are new to this.

            1. Cat Camel Stretch

            Stretching exercises are useful for muscle toning and also preventing arthritis. They can either be dynamic or static.

            Dynamic ones such as the cat camel stretch, are particularly useful for doing other exercises in the morning. They are also beneficial at other times of the day, especially after long periods of sedentary work. This one is great for spinal flexibility and is a good warm up exercise.

            Kneel down on all fours. Start by rounding your back just like a camel so that your head will try to meet your pelvis. This is the camel position. Then lower and lift your head so that your lower back is arched. This is the cat position. Do these movements slowly and smoothly. About 4 or 5 times.

            Here’s a video to guide you through:

            2. Go for a Walk or a Run

            This is better done outside so that you can connect with nature but running inside on a treadmill is almost as good. You can time yourself and increase length and time according to your fitness program.

            Always have new goals to reach. Start with brisk walking and work up to running. At my age, I am still walking!

            The health benefits are considerable. You can build stronger bones and you can help to maintain your weight.

            Also, you are helping your heart to stay healthy and keeping your blood pressure low.

            3. Jumping Jacks

            Michelle Obama is a great fan of this exercise and has become “Jumper in Chief.”[4] They are great for cardiovascular health and also for toning muscles especially the calves and the deltoids.

            Stand with feet together. Jump while spreading your arms and legs. Return to first position and keep going! You can start with doing these for 1 minute and then gradually build up to the number you are comfortable with. Here’s how:

            4. Abductor Side Lifts

            Watch the video below to see how to do this exercise. These muscles are important because you use them everyday to run, get into the car or onto and off a bicycle. They are very important also for your core stability and prevent the pelvis from tilting.[5]

            Do about 10 to 15 raises for each side like this:

            5. Balancing Table Pose

            This is a classic yoga pose. It benefits the spine, balance, memory and concentration.

            Start with the table pose (hands and knees). Breathe in before starting each movement. As you exhale, raise your left leg parallel to the floor as you raise the right arm, also parallel to the floor. Breathe in as you lower arm and leg. Repeat for the other side. 10 repetitions on each side is a good starting point.

              6. Leg Squats

              Not just legs are involved but also hips and knees.

              Stand with your feet a bit further out from your hips. Arms are out in front of you. Then lower yourself as if you wanted to sit down until you reach a 90 degree angle. You can go down further if you want to. Then return to the starting position. Repeat 15 times for 2 sets for beginners.

              The benefits are that these exercises help with knee stability and can benefit the leg muscles such as quadriceps, hamstrings and calves.[6]

              7. Push Ups

              You start lying down (face down) but with your body held up at arm’s length. Your hands should be in line with your shoulders. Breathe in as you lower your body. That is fairly easy. Now, as you exhale, you have to get back up to the starting position.

              An easier version to start with is to bend your legs at the knees so you do not have to lift your whole body.

              Beginners may take up to a month to be able to do 100 push ups so you will have to start with a very small number and gradually increase it.

              This exercise is great for strengthening the chest, shoulders and the triceps. It is a great strengthening exercise for many muscle groups. In fact, most muscles from the toes to the shoulders are being used.

              8. Bicycle Crunches

              There are numerous crunch exercises targeting the abs. The bicycle crunch is a variation where you work more muscle groups. Aim for 15 to 20 reps to start off with.

              Watch the video to see how this is done correctly:

              9. Lunges

              Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Place your hand on your hips. Take one giant step forward with the right leg. Make sure the knee does not go too far forward, that is, past your toes. The left knee will go down to almost floor level. Alternate the legs as you go on.

              Try to do a set of between 8 and 12 reps for each leg. It is important to allow for a day of rest, so this exercise should be done on alternate days, especially if you are using weights.

              This exercise is great for strengthening and toning the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings.

              10. Bicep Curls

              You can do this sitting down so if you spend a lot of time on the phone, this is a great exercise to do.

              Choose suitable dumbbells or another household object that you can easily hold. Sit down with the dumbbell in your hand. You need to sit forward a bit so that your triceps can lean on your thigh to give you support.

              Then bring the weighted arm up to shoulder length and then down again. Exhale as you lift the weight and inhale as you lower it.

              Here’re some important notes before you start doing this exercise:

              Try to do one or two sets of about ten repetitions for each arm and then switch arms.

              These exercises are really useful for toning the arm muscles.[7] In addition, they can strengthen and tone the brachioradialis muscle located in the forearm. These are the muscles we use to pick up things when we flex the arm at the elbow so we use these muscles countless times a day.

              You may have to build in a rest day for the heavier exercises, numbers 6–10. On the rest days, you can do gentler stretching exercises and also some walking or running.

              Morning exercise is not only a great mood booster, but will help you keep your weight down and also sleep better![8] Start including one or some of these exercises in your morning routine!
