Whether you’re an animal lover looking to get up close and personal with your favourite gentle giants or keen to live out your childhood dream as an astronaut, there’s somewhere in the world that’s perfect for your next holiday. Some of these are a trip in themselves, so don’t plan too many activities outside of your temporary quarters.

Giraffe Manor | Kenya

Ever felt like sharing breakfast with a giraffe? Probably not, but that’s exactly what you can do if you stay at The Safari Collection’s Giraffe Manor! The extravagant boutique hotel is smack in the middle of a 140-acre giraffe sanctuary, meaning you can share your vacay with the resident giraffes. Many of them will poke their heads in during breakfast or dinner in hopes to get a bite of your meal. When you’ve finished sharing a meal with your new furry friend, take a guided tour through the gardens, explore the history of the sanctuary, and even meet, adopt, and fall in love with a baby elephant at the nearby wildlife trust. After a night in the exclusive Kenyan hotel, get a wakeup call from a giraffe when you stay in one of the manor’s 12 luxury bedrooms, where you’ll a stunning view of the African sunrise, jungle, and gentle giants. Trust us, it’s a much more relaxing way to wake up than your phone’s alarm!

Lover’s Deep Submarine | The Caribbean

Grab your partner and escape the stress, noise, and smell of the city. In fact, escape land altogether, and book a few nights in a 5-star luxury submarine, and dock at the location of your choice. Fancy yourselves a pair of wannabe historians? You could even pull up over a sunken battleship near any of the Caribbean islands the submarine is known to explore. Decked out with the finest food, amenities, and even a personal chef and butler during your stay, the vessel is packed with every luxury under the sun (or ocean), including a carefully crafted aphrodisiac menu, rich wooden finishes, and the most luxurious bedroom you’ll find. the Lover’s Deep Submarine is guaranteed to give you the serene scenery and much-needed getaway you’ve been dreaming of. The concept was announced in 2015 but is yet to be executed!

The Muraka | The Maldives

The Lover’s Deep Submarine may be a bit far-fetched, but The Muraka is as real as it gets. Submerged over 16 feet below sea level in the Indian Ocean, the villa is two-level residence with an immaculate master bedroom. Arrive by seaplane or private speedboat which you will then have on-hand for the duration of your stay. Above water, the villa boasts two bedrooms and a bathroom with an ocean-facing bath, outdoor deck with infinity pool, a 24-hour butler and chef, on-call fitness trainer and private jet skis. Below the waterline, take in the underwater view with floor to ceiling windows, dedicated tunnel viewing theatre and master bedroom with a 180-degree curved acrylic dome. If this isn’t luxe, what is?
