The Fantasy Buffet
Sato Castle Motel, Taipei, Taiwan
Taiwan’s theme hotels take the Japanese “love hotel” concept to the next level – and the Sato Castle Motel is one of the best of breed. The hotel has designed every room like a Technicolor movie set, with eye-popping color, gigantic wall murals and decor galore, so you and your partner can fully immerse yourself in your erotic dreams. Do you want a sexy superhero fantasy, kinky Chinese history, anime eroticism, Pirates of the Caribbean adventures, or silky Thai elegance? You can say “all of the above,” and you’re still only scratching the surface of what Sato Castle Motel has to offer. If you want to indulge multiple fantasies, the staff is happy to help you move to a different room every night of your stay.
Mira Mira Fantasy Accommodation, Gippsland Region, Australia
Get deep in the bush (that’s what the Australians call wilderness areas) at the Mira Mira Fantasy Accommodation. This boutique sensual sanctuary offers a Flintstones-like cave, a Japanese zen retreat, a country English lodge and a 70s hippie escape. The four suites are tucked away in different areas of the 22-acre property, so the only ones who’ll hear your cries of passion are the kangaroos and wombats outside your door.
Hotel Pelirocco, Brighton, England
“You won’t find a better hotel for your dirty weekend anywhere in the UK,” their website says. Erotic artwork in the Hotel Pelirocco lobby sets a sexy, edgy mood for your stay. Each of the 19 themed rooms has a rock and roll flavor. “Dollywould” is pure Americana; “Modrophenia” is a tribute to ‘60s mod culture, and Do Knit Disturb is, you guessed it, a room themed around knitting. They’re perfect for a naughty photo shoot – and the hotel offers a boudoir photographer as an add-on.
Chateau Avalon Hotel Spa, Kansas City, Kansas
If you daydreamed about starring in a Duran Duran video in the ‘80s, the elegant Havana Room or Casablanca Room at Chateau Avalon will do the trick; just bring your own Drakkar Noir. For feature film level fantasies, you can sling your gun in the Jesse James Suite, capture some booty in the Pirate’s Cove, get sand in uncomfortable places in the Castaway Isle Suite, or play royal and courtesan (or Stargate explorers) in an Egyptian palace, among many other fantasy options.
Fantasyland Hotel, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Edmonton has a surprisingly naughty side; if you’re in a place where it snows in July, you need to find excitement in the great indoors. Fantasyland lives up to its name with rooms that provide the setting for sexy scenarios like an alien abduction, an emperor and slave, naughty Victorian erotica, and many others. The hotel is attached to the West Edmonton Mall, the largest retail complex in North America, so you can find the perfect clothing and accessories for your erotic evening.
For the Fans
V8 Hotel, Stuttgart, Germany
Did Queen’s “I’m In Love With My Car” speak to you on a deeply sensual level? If high school memories of making out in a Mazda turn your crank or the scent of motor oil gets you into high gear, your pistons will be pumping at the V8 Hotel. Some rooms are designed around a specific car; others are focused on a theme tied to the automobile, like Route 66 or a drive-in movie theater.
Baan Suan Noi (Hobbit House), Khao Yai, Thailand
Khao Yai is a spectacular national park in Thailand that is barely on the radar of most Westerners. And it’s surrounded by immersively executed (and budget friendly) theme hotels and resorts. You can stay in a fantasy version of Tuscany, the Cotswolds, rural France, or a Western gunslinging town, just for starters. The most fantastic hotel of them all is Baan Suan Noi, which recreates the hobbit homes from the Lord of the Rings film series. The designers paid great attention to detail, and even offer costumes so you can live out your Galadriel/Frodo fantasies.
Georgian House Hotel, London, England
While all your friends were re-watching the Harry Potter films for the twentieth time, you were writing Harry/Draco slash fic. Get your wand (and your engorgio spell) ready. Your room, hidden behind a secret bookcase door, is appointed with Harry Potter elements like owls, house sigils and many other items.
Stredoveky Medieval Hotel, Detenice, Czech Republic
If your sexy fantasies lean more toward Game of Thrones, book in to the Stredoveky Medieval Hotel. From the giant banquet hall with an open fire to little details like the fragrant herbs scattered on the hardwood floors, the hotel feels like a Middle Ages castle. The bathrooms also look medieval, but are up to 21st century standards (and thankfully, don’t smell medieval.)
Theme on a Budget
Die Wohngemeinschaft, Cologne, Germany
You’ve got dreams of gorgeous theme hotels, big sexy fantasies and a little tiny bank account. That’s where Die Wohngemeinschaft comes in. This hostel has a mix of dorm and private rooms, all of which are immersively themed and value-priced. (Note: Unless you’re planning an orgy, the dorm rooms probably aren’t appropriate for your erotic activities.) Sleep in a spaceship, a photographer’s studio or on a construction scaffold, among many other options.
Photos Don’t Do It Justice
La Ballade des Gnomes, Heyd-Durbuy, Belgium
Do you wish you could make love in a fairytale setting? At La Ballade des Gnomes, you can. People who stay at La Ballade des Gnomes hotel rave about the attention to detail and say the photos can’t hold a candle to the in-person experience. Stay in a troll hut, on the moon, in a Trojan horse, or one of the other wild rooms. If you can’t decide, do what other guests have done and book a different room for each night.
The Victorian Mansion, Los Alamos, California
This was originally a Victorian mansion and looks like one from the outside. But behind closed doors it’s hiding secrets…six of them! This property has six luxury suites designed to fulfill fantasies from pirate ships to the 1950s to ancient Egypt and more. They call it “Disneyland for adults.” Slide naked over silky soft high-threadcount sheets, and wrap yourself in indulgent plush bathrobes for a few minutes when hot breakfast is delivered to your suite every morning. The Victorian Mansion is in the middle of the California wine country made famous by the film “Sideways,” if you can bear to leave your room.
The Madonna Inn, San Luis Obispo, California
You may have seen the Madonna Inn as a sexy setting in The Bachelor, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the film Aria or in a recent Lady Antebellum video – and yet it’s still nowhere near as amazing as experiencing it for yourself. Alex and Phyllis Madonna built the first rooms out of the native local stone in 1958. Each room has a theme, all filtered through those late-50s aesthetics and using local materials. The combination creates a theme hotel unlike any in the world. Filmmaker Julian Temple called it “the pinnacle of Americana.” It’s a fantasy come to life and the perfect location for an erotic weekend.
