Every hotel comes equipped with a bed to sleep in and a roof over your head. Price and location are important, but what sets each hotel apart from the next are the amenities they provide. Check out these unusual amenities found in hotels from around the world. I’m not talking about your typical pool, continental breakfast, room service, or spa. These amenities are truly unique and make for an unforgettable vacation.
At Loews Coronado Bay Hotel in San Diego, California you can hang 10… with your dog! They offer classes that teach your pup how to surf with the big dogs. If your dog is a natural in the water and takes home first place at the Loews Surf Dog Competition you win a getaway at Loews Coronado Bay Hotel, and bragging rights for owning the coolest dog ever!
If you already travel like a rock star why not rock out like a rock star too! The Geejam hotel in Portland, Jamaica has a state-of-the-art recording studio right in the hotel. Not only can you tour the studio, but a recording engineer will give some background on the recording process and you can even record your own song! Who knows, you might leave on your vacation as a tourist and come home a superstar!
Do you enjoy relaxing on the beach and watching the sunset as you puff on a good cigar? What if you could do just that on your next vacation, but make the cigar yourself! At the Graycliff Hotel, Restaurant and Cigar Company in Nassau, Bahamas guests can learn how to roll, sort, clean and store their own cigars. They give a lesson on the history of cigar making, and teach you about the different types of tobacco leaves and how to properly blend them to create award winning cigars.
Unless you are a professional catortionist we all have needed an extra hand applying sunscreen before a sun tanning session. If your staying at the Ritz-Carlton, South Beach in Miami Beach, Florida don’t worry about missing those hard-to-reach areas because there is always a tanning butler patrolling the pool deck and beach ready to help out. They are equipped with oil and suncreen in all SPFs to help their guests achieve the golden sun-kissed glow they desire.
Has an airline ever lost your luggage on a vacation? I hope you have never had to to experience this, but if you have you know it has the potential to ruin your vacation. The Stafford Hotel in London makes sure your stay is nothing but enjoyable even in the worst circumstances. In case the airline loses their guests’ luggage they created a Baggage Emergency Response Squad that provides guests with a complimentary “first aid kit” containing toiletries, wool socks, and packaged knickers to hold them over until their luggage is retrieved.
