5 Of The Most Spectacular Hotels Around The World

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!

            7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

            7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

            Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

            Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

            1. Exercise Daily

            It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

            If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

            Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

            If you’re a morning person, check out these morning exercises that will start your day off right.

            2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

            Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

            One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

            This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

            3. Acknowledge Your Limits

            Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

            Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

            Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

            4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

            Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

            The basic nutritional advice includes:

            • Eat unprocessed foods
            • Eat more veggies
            • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
            • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

            Advertising

            Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

              5. Watch Out for Travel

              Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

              This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

              If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

              6. Start Slow

              Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

              If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

              7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

              Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

              My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

              If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

              I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

              Final Thoughts

              Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

              Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
