World Sleep Day: the most unique places to sleep

Friday, March 17, is World Sleep Day. An annual day to draw attention to the importance of good sleep and disorders that affect sleep. So, unfortunately, no good excuse to stay in bed a little longer. When you can, though, is at these exceptional sleep spots MASTERS listed for the occasion.

Treehotel, Harads, Sweden

In the northern forests of Sweden you will find the Treehotel. Voted Best Theme Hotel in the World by World Travel Awards in 2020. In a Bob Ross landscape, high in the trees you will find the coolest "rooms" in unadulterated Swedish design: Mirror Cube, Cabin, Birds Nest, UFO, Blue Cone, Dragonfly or the Seventh Room. Climb up a rope ladder to your own sanctuary and enter a world where time has stood still. And yes: comfort all around, including underfloor heating. Pretty nice when it's freezing 20 degrees outside....

North Pole Igloos, 

Meet the northernmost hotel in the world... The concept of North Pole Igloos is portable, durable and a tad extreme. But during the extreme Arctic weather conditions, at least in this igloo you will be nice and warm. The total package includes several amenities, such as a private bathroom, a site manager, a guide for survival in the polar wilderness, a chef and first-class security. The heated igloos are equipped with glass roofs, so you can enjoy the wonders of the northern lights even from your bed inside.

Hotel Everest View, Nepal

Opened in 1971, this gem of a place to sleep has been in the Guinness Book of World Record as the highest hotel since 2004. The altitude? 3880 meters. As the name suggests, you actually get Everest View, because from every room, guests can enjoy the mesmerizing views of Mount Everest. And for those who are short on time or just want a touch of luxury in the high mountains: to reach the hotel, a direct helicopter flight can be arranged.

The Manta Resort, Zanzibar

In the snow, in a tree and on a mountain; a place to sleep in the water is a must. At The Manta Resort you can choose to stay in one of the garden rooms, in one of the new villas by the sea with sun terrace or on the floating private island with underwater room...

Skylodge Adventure Suites, Peru 

Balancing dangerously on the edge of a cliff all night may be the stuff of nightmares, but at Skylodge Adventure Suites it's more like sweet dreams. After a 1,200-foot climb, the pods, made of aerospace-grade aluminum and weather-resistant polycarbonate, provide a luxurious evening before you figure out how to get back down. The pods have four beds, a dining area and private bathroom, not to mention 300-degree views.
