7 unusual accommodations for a unique honeymoon in Portugal

Not every couple is a fan of conventional hotels or spa resorts for their honeymoon. The experience of enjoying a night in an original type of accommodation is part of the pleasure associated to a special vacation. In Portugal, we have a variety of unconventional accommodations such as itinerant hotels, accommodations on fire trucks, in a Yurt, Moroccan or teepee tent, bungalows, yoga retreats, eco-resorts… all of which are just as equally comfortable and fun for a honeymoon… or even more so! Do you want to know more?

1. X-Ride, an itinerant hotel

This is one of the most recent novelties in the hotel business. It’s not a hotel, nor a bus, but an experience. The X-Ride Bus Trip Experience is a truly unique experience, where a two-storey bus has been transformed into an itinerant hotel. The bus has 4 rooms, a kitchen and a chill out lounge – the breakfast meeting place where guests gather to plan out their day. Of course, the bus is totally decked out in comfort (yes there is hot water!) and modern technologies (LED, DVD, MP3 sound system) so you’ll feel right at home, even if you’re speeding away. The bus can be rented with its very own driver and crewman at your beck and call, so you can cruise your honeymoon away, enjoying one of the 5 different road trips available. Perfect for adventurous newlyweds who crave adrenalin and radical sports… is that you and your better half?

2. Fire truck, Yurt or gypsy trailer in Silves
