Think of a good night’s sleep and we imagine crisp sheets, fluffy pillows and a restful and refreshing slumber. Most of us will imagine our own bedrooms, or perhaps a classy hotel with an expansive bed and a mattress that feels more like a cloud.
But for more adventurous types, a good night’s sleep can mean something entirely different. From treehouses to converted prison cells, our love of sleep has seen the emergence of some weird, wonderful and downright wacky hotels that promise a great night’s sleep in less-than-typical locations.
Yet at CPAP Australia, we’re all too aware that sometimes not even the world’s most adventurous or luxurious locations can guarantee great sleep, even for those already receiving sleep therapy. If you’re concerned that your therapy isn’t giving you the sleep you need, request a check up at your nearest CPAP Australia store.
With the right treatment, even you can explore some of the world’s strangest hotels and get a good night’s sleep.
Here's a list of the world’s weirdest and most wonderful places to sleep, from Australia and abroad:
