We’ve all seen some amazing lighthouses in the past and reminisce on how they can save ships from crashing into our lands – but at the Belle Tout lighthouse, this is far from the truth. The Belle Tout Lighthouse in Eastbourne, UK, was decommissioned from its typical duties and now serves as a hotel for people wanting to visit the area. This beautiful and remote location is often missed on most booking sites, making it fly well below the radar of tourists but an amazing place to stay nonetheless.
Booking a night stay at this beautiful lighthouse will cost you around £210 per night.
Le Sirenuse, Positano – Italy
Flying back over to Italy, we head to the Le Sirenuse in Positano. Positano is famous for its mountainside homes overlooking the beautiful ocean, however, the Le Sirenuse hotel is quite unknown. This iconic hotel with a sea-facing view allows you to relax and embark on all Positano has to offer whilst keeping off the grid and tranquil.
Booking a night at this amazing view, with a sea-facing room will be around £2100 per night, making it a very costly – but quite worthy price tag. (Booking in advance by a year or two reduces this massively).

When stepping inside of Pine Cliffs, you have a sense of well-being and tranquillity and almost feel like you’re stepping onto another continent with open-plan living and extremely spacious living quarters for your room.
