Nothing encourages cuddling like a bed made of ice! First opened in 1990 in Sweden, Icehotel has been created every year using only ice and snow from the Torne River. The hotel stays up from December to April and artists from all over the world are invited to create their own rooms out of the sculpted ice.
Icehotel in its entirety features rooms and suites for more than 100 guests, as well as a chapel entirely sculpted out of ice and an Absolut Icebar that serves its drinks in — what else? — ice glasses. You don't have to worry about frostbite, either: Guests sleep on their beds of ice wrapped in reindeer fur and polar-tested sleeping bags. The aurora borealis can even be seen through the thick ice walls while you cozy up at night. Then in April, the hotel poetically melts away into the Torne River. Image via Icehotel.
6. Godiva Chocolate Suite
Everyone knows chocolate is an aphrodisiac, so what could be more romantic than staying in an entire room made of chocolate? Pretty much nothing. In 2008 and 2009, Godiva ran a very sweet (pun intended) Valentine's Day giveaway: a night in a special room in the Bryant Park Hotel in New York, exclusively designed by Jonathan Adler and created entirely out of Godiva chocolate. This means the paintings, the ceilings and even the chandeliers are all 100% gourmet Godiva chocolate.
If this doesn't seem like something straight out of Willy Wonka already, wait until you hear how you could win a night’s stay. Customers shopping in Godiva stores were told to look for boxes with a red heart. Inside these boxes would be an envelope containing a game piece that would reveal if you were a winner.
Chocolates have been proven to contain serotonin -- a happiness neurotransmitter -- making it the perfect date night snack. But having your entire hotel suite made out of chocolate is taking things to a whole other level. Image via Bizbash.
7. Airplane Suite
For those who like close quarters, this suite is definitely for you. In 2007, a company fully transformed a 1960 Ilyushin 18 airplane into a private suite for two. Previously used to fly the leaders of the German Republican Democratic government, the plane is now home to one of the most inclusive, and private, suites in the world.
It's 1,300 feet long and contains everything you'd expect from a date night in a luxury hotel: jacuzzi, shower, infrared sauna, mini bar, three flat screen TVs complete with a DVD library and a pantry for all your coffee and tea-making needs. Major bonus: The cabin of the plane remains completely untouched so guests are free to play around with the old controls!
It doesn't get more private than being sealed away inside your very own jet that's designed to give you a level of closeness you won't find in any run-of-the-mill hotels! Image via Airbnb.
