Hotel Cocoon in Salvador Bahia, Brazil promises to be the first spaceship hotel. The concrete hotel is designed to be a haven for those who love minimalist design. The hotel has 27 guest rooms with platform beds and a monochrome look enlivened by the liberal use of orange, with concrete and hardwood accents and transparent tubs. The hotel has a cocktail lounge and a pool as well as a restaurant, Planeta Pasta, that serves Italian food. Rates for this unique hotel start at around $130. Reviews on Trip Advisor are mixed, it gets high marks for design but the hotel is a bit far away from tourist destinations and the local beach is perhaps a not idyllic.
