While cities such as Shanghai, Dubai, and Toronto have long been known for their futuristic-looking hotels, they’ve hardly cornered the market on cutting-edge properties. These days, some of the world’s most innovatively designed accommodations are popping up in less cosmopolitan places, from a national park in Iceland to the misty rain forest of India. Some feature minimalist décor that enhances the natural surroundings, while others offer first-rate amenities in places not typically known for luxury. Either way, these 10 stunning hotels provide memorable experiences in places where you'd least expect to find them.
