We’ve seen skyscraper hotels, dog-shaped hotels and even underwater hotels, but have you ever imagined what it would be like to stay in an underground hotel?
The world’s first ever underground hotel recently opened in Shanghai, China. The InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is a bold piece of architectural design, which has been built directly into the side wall of a quarry.
Guests will sleep 88 metres underground with views of the quarry cliffside
16 of the 18 storeys are literally in the rock, so you’ll get a pretty scenic view.
Two floors are completely underwater, and six underwater suites have their own saltwater aquarium
The quarry has been filled with water, and every night a dazzling light show is visible from the hotel room balconies. Guests can also kayak across the quarry and go rock climbing.
Imagine falling asleep in this beautiful room?
There’s also a ground-level rooftop garden and a glass-enclosed waterfall running through the hotel
Oh, and a helicopter pad on the roof if you want to really make an entrance. 10 years in the making and $300 million later, this hotel is certainly making a statement.
