 Costa Verde, Quepos, Costa Rica | To create a hotel that's more like a scene from the TV show Lost, the Costa Verde team transported and refurbished a 1965 vintage Boeing 727 fuselage to create a fantastic two-bedroom suite on a coastal rainforest bluff. A favourite for weddings, honeymoons and romance, it's set on a concrete plinth that juts up 15m into the jungle canopy, so looking out of the windows feels like flying. There's a wooden cabin built around the aircraft, with furnishings in hand carved teak, and the rear bedroom has a handcrafted deck on the wing, from which guests can watch toucans, sloths and monkeys. The site has bungalows and a guesthouse too. • From $250 a night, room only
