One of the best ways to make sure that yours lives up to its name is by booking a stay at a place where the accommodation is so unique, it's seared in your minds forever. These places are so unique, they can barely really even be called "hotels." This doesn't mean they have to skimp on comfort, luxury, or honeymoon-friendly amenities...these places are just as luxurious as any, but they're more than hotels -- they're completely unique concepts with a "wow factor" that will blow your mind.
