Sand Hotel on Weymouth Beach
To begin our list we’ll travel to England to the Sand Hotel in Weymouth Beach. This destination is regarded as a stronghold for the castle builders, as the sand sculptures located here are incredibly resounding.

There were 1,000 tons of sand used to create it and a wall had been structured as well as a high castle archway, towers and ornaments.
Inside there is a complete lounging area made of sand as well as sand beds. They also promote sleeping under the night sky as well as a view of the ocean for 10 pounds and up. Perhaps one of the only downsides would be that the castle constructors couldn’t make any toilets.

For the second hotel on our list, in order for you to get an image of what it’s like, just look at the name. Every wall in the place has been constructed from salt blocks and the floor has even been covered with crystals of salt as well. For the ceiling, furniture and all else it required the use of roughly one million blocks of salt.
The Salt Hotel is situated on a hill which provides a fabulous view of their well-known salt lake within the small community of Colchani. This resort is distinctive for one particular reason, which is its soothing and pleasant atmosphere in the midst of salt where you can feel your body’s circulation and be at total ease.
