Dwell - Have You Ever Wanted to Stay in a Norwegian Sea Cabin? This boutique hotel on Norway's Manshausen Island is made up of four sea cabins that jut out from their natural ledge. Architect Snorre Stinessen carefully positioned them on an existing stone quay and built them to fit two to four travelers, or a family of five. To allow them to cantilever off the edge, their cross laminated timber floor plates are mounted onto two steel beams.
The Quay Club With 2km of pristine sandy beach and views of the Burj Al Arab, this is one of Dubai’s swankiest beachside spots. Facilities: While it’s certainly not cheap, you get access to the two hotel pools (one at Mina A’Salam, the other at Al Qasr), towels, free kids’ beach toys, and a beach butler bringing fresh fruit and cool towels
