The 5 Unique Hotel Resorts You Must Visit
Ours list will contain a colourful variety of hotels from everywhere around the world, put together in a single collection which showcases their unique sides that you probably have never and will never see in another place. Enjoy!
1. VILLAS IN THE MIST
These shire-like villas that comprise the recently opened Bisate Lodge near Kigali are not only visually compelling, but one of the lodge’s primary purposes is to protect and sustain the surrounding mountains (where Dian Fossey studied the mountain gorilla) by reforesting the area. The incredible new Lodge built of Natural materials and on a hillside facing the volcanoes is in Rwanda. Perfect for gorilla tracking. Only 6 suites ensure comfort and the best experience.

2. UNDERWATER IS ALWAYS COOL!
Pristine white beach, overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Pemba Channel. The Manta is located in remote Pemba Island in Tanzania. The beach is considered as one of the best swimming beaches in the whole of Zanzibar Archipelago. The diving facility here is world-class. The resort offers more than 17 highly comfortable and luxurious rooms in various price categories with superior garden rooms which overlooks the sea between the foliage but the biggest attraction of it is this incredible underwater room! A truly unique stay! Agree?

4. NEW STANDARD OF UNIQUE
For a small, family-owned hotel, Cape Town’s new Silo has certainly made a big impact! The 28-bedroom hotel inhabits the upper floors of the silos’ former elevator house, the work-horse of the original complex. It is now distinguished by remarkable, 5.5-metre windows, described as ‘pillowed glazing panels’, which gently balloon out, saturating the hotel in sparkling light, and providing expansive views of Table Mountain, the always-busy port, and the shops and restaurants of the Victoria & Albert Waterfront below. The exquisite, eclectic interiors, combined with the triple-aspect views of Cape Town, make The Penthouse the jewel in The Royal Portfolio’s crown. The largest museum of contemporary African art in the world, Zeitz MOCAA is situated below The Silo Hotel. The museum is located in the V&A Waterfront, on the banks of Table Bay overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Eighty exhibition spaces have been carved out of the 42 cylindrical silos, anchored by a cathedral-like central atrium, floodlit from above by a glass roof, itself the setting for an open-air sculpture garden.

5. HELLO GIRAFFE!
Situated next to Nairobi’s Giraffe Centre, the manor is in an exceptional location for interacting with Kenya’s wildlife.
You might feel as staying in a friends house at Giraffe Manor which was built in 1932 and was a house of Sir David Duncan. All the rooms are furnished in the style of 30’s. Set in 140 acres of indigenous forest, the house and grounds are simply beautiful. you can sit in front of the fireplace or just unwind at the garden surrounded by these friendly giants. Don’t be surprised when one of the shows up at your breakfast or winks at you in the morning. This is what makes this place truly unique and exceptional.
