What kind of accommodation do you choose when you go on holiday? I’m intrigued by places to stay that have lots of character and unique personalities. So today – if like me you’re struggling to get back into work mode – for fun I’m starting my ‘unique hotels to stay in’ bucket list. It’s basically a series of blog posts in which we go exploring fun and unique places to stay around the world.

First up is El Cosmico, described as a “nomadic desert hotel” set on 21 dusty acres in the middle of the west Texan desert in a little place called Marfa everyone seems to be talking about these days. 

It’s basically a chic camping experience and American road trip stop-off with caravans, safari tents, teepees and a yurt. The eight refurbished vintage trailers come with kitchens, mini bars and baths…

The three teepees each have a comfy double bed, sofa and roaring fire for toasty nights…

The luxury safari tents are big at 120 square feet and have wood floors, thick walls and doors, queen beds, a chair, simple lighting and electricity. In the winter, the beds are heated with heated blankets so you stay cosy.

There’s also a gigantic yurt 22-feet in diameter, with a queen bed, a writing desk and a sofa for lounging.

Once you’ve settled in, crack open a cold beer at the camp kitchen or hang out with your fellow campers at the hammock grove.

Find out more and book your stay at El Cosmico, here.

Psst. More unique hotels: Brighton, Palm Springs and London.  


  1. Our trailer is exactly what I always wanted my home to be — it is cozy, comfortable, cost-efficient, two bedrooms,
    two bathrooms, with a kick-ass kitchen, and our neighbors are some of the nicest people I have ever met.
