Lost in SensationsLost in Sensations  

The daringly named French hotel promises to excite all your five senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing, in ways you haven't experienced before.

The hotel's six distinctively different accommodations would each be worthy of a trip to the outskirts of Bordeaux, but there is more. Whichever unique lodging you book, the public spaces all welcome you to explore art, indulge in gastronomy, and relax in style.

The mastermind behind this extraordinary project is a Brazilian-Italian-Portuguese woman, Naf Pinto Duares, whose vision was to bring luxury and art to nature.

Her hospitality philosophy is personalizing guests' experiences based on their desires and providing them with an "anything, anytime" service. This even extends to the size of the bathrobes, which will be tailored for each guest instead of a regular M or L size.

The journey to get lost in sensations starts from the moment of entering the gates of this unique hotel. The artistic encounters extend outdoors, where some of the artworks come to life at night.

The five hectares of woodland with only five lodgings has plenty of surrounding greenery, from tall palm trees to lush forests. The 800 m2 (8,611 ft2) indoor space is shared by a maximum of 15 people, so your privacy is protected.

From time to time, the hotel turns into a temporary exhibition of talented photographers, painters, and sculptors.

Bubble Tents - Sleep with HAL

Lost in Sensations Hotel Bubble Tent: 2001: A Space Odyssey

The bubble tents' soaring popularity produces new iterations of this unique accommodation type. Here, the inspiration for the design comes from Stanley Kubrick's classic movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Don't worry! While HAL 9000 (the artificial intelligence character) is present in the tents, but only as an artwork.

The three "bubbles" are interconnected with spaceship-imitating pocket doors, where you can get from the seethrough lounge to the privacy-protected bedroom on one side and the bathroom on the other.

The space-age design continues outside, with retro-futuristic plastic furniture and a blue-lit Jacuzzi - a perfect way to relax under the starry night!

The Yurt - Mongolian Chic


The circular dwelling with a hole in its ceiling served Central Asian people (especially in Mongolia) for thousands of years. These well-isolated, sturdy yet portable structures have a lot of charm but traditionally only serve basic human needs.

Lost in Sensations Hotel Mongolian Yurt

As you would expect from a hotel trying to impress all your senses, this yurt is an upgrade to the original idea. While there is a central wood-burning stove, everything around it screams luxury - from the white clawfoot bathtub and large canopy bed to the private spa on its terrace.

The Riviera - Belle Époque

Lost in Sensations Hotel The Riviera Room

Mirroring the outdoor greenery on the bedroom walls, The Riviera's sophisticated design plays with Art Deco elements from the 1930s with black and gold accents but manages to keep the space warm and welcoming.
