While all hotels aim to help travellers escape from their daily grind, some take it to the next level by creating environments that fully immerse guests in a concept, era or even a different world.

Whether you want to be a cowboy for a day, get a bird’s-eye view or “geek out” over auto parts, these quirky theme properties on Agoda are sure to spice up your travel diaries. 


Get ready to be transported to the golden era of 1930s Shanghai at the elegant Shanghai Mansion Bangkok, where each decadent room is inspired by Shanghai Art Deco design. On-theme facilities include the Red Rose Chinese Restaurant and Jazz Lounge, where refreshing cocktails are served and live jazz is performed throughout the night.


Head to the Wild West at the Big Joey Country Resort and embrace your inner cowboy or Native American, choosing to stay in either the rugged cowboy-theme rooms or colourful teepees. Within commuting distance of KhaoYai National Park, with its expansive forest scenery and hiking trails, this property is the ideal base camp for a full-on nature retreat.


Keemala’s luxurious tree-house villas in Phuket are inspired by the woven tangle of bird’s nests. Perched high above the trees, each tree house offers large rooms, a private pool and epic views of the Kamala rainforest. Nearby attractions include elephant sanctuaries, scuba diving excursions and the lively nightlife of Patong Beach.


If you love animals and nature, the European-theme Swiss Valley Hip Resort is just the place for you. Nestled within a green valley, the property offers panoramic views of Suan Phueng’s mountainous landscape. From the on-site sheep farm to the horseback riding and archery activities, you’ll be able to get a taste of rural farm life.


If cars are your thing head to Mestyle Garage Hotel, a new property born from the owner’s love of cars. Recycled auto parts are given new life as one-of-a-kind room decor and furniture for the boutique hotel. After a day of exploring Bangkok’s attractions, head to the trendy rooftop bar and re-fuel your tank.
