Sometimes where you stay is a reason to visit a place all by itself. It might be the treehouse of your dreams, or a guesthouse you never want to leave. It’s one of our favourite things about traveling. We look for places that are unusual, creative, unique, and special – the kinds of places you want to tell people about. This is our collection of special stays from around the world. They range from hostels to five-star hotels – for us special isn't about the price, it's about the character. We also include special stays in our detailed itineraries, some of which aren't included in the list below.
