Sextantio le Grotte della Civita

Take a trip to Italy and you can do just that at the Sextantio le Grotte dell Civita, a once ancient abandoned cave turned luxury resort in Southern Italy. Situated in the Sassi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this hotel and the surrounding areas have been inhabited for over 2,500 years making you a part of history. Carved into the mountainside itself, the first residents of this area date back to the Bronze Age.

Jules’ Undersea Lodge
Located some 20 feet below the surface of a mangrove lagoon in Key Largo Florida, visitors are privy to an adventure like no other. Once a research habitat, this underwater lab has since been converted to a hotel sleeping up to 6 people. Guests who stay at this one of a kind destination are offered unlimited diving for those who already are certified.
