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!

            How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

            How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

            Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

            You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

            Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

            1. Work on the small tasks.

            When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

            Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

            2. Take a break from your work desk.

            Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

            Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

            3. Upgrade yourself

            Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

            The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

            4. Talk to a friend.

            Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

            Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

            5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

            If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

            Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

            Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

            6. Paint a vision to work towards.

            If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

            Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

            Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

            7. Read a book (or blog).

            The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

            Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

            Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

            8. Have a quick nap.

            If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

            9. Remember why you are doing this.

            Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

            What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

            10. Find some competition.

            Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

            Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

            11. Go exercise.

            Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

            Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

            As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

            Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

            12. Take a good break.

            Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

            Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

            Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
