The brilliant combination of a wildlife park and 4-star accommodation takes you one step closer to animals than ever before. Pairi Daiza, "Garden of the Worlds", lies in Belgium, and it's one of the top attractions in the country. It's been voted "Best zoo in Europe" on multiple occasions, and the park houses over 7,000 animals from around the world.
Since 2019 it has been possible to sleep at the Pairi Daiza Resort in thematic quarters of the park called The Last Frontier and The Land of the Cold. The resort has 100 rooms, each of them directly facing wild animals. You only need to decide which is your favorite; sea lions, walruses, polar bears, penguins, brown bears, and grey wolves or black bears and deer. Three of these accommodations are partially below water, providing a unique perspective on the outdoor life through an extra-large window.
Hotel guests get a two days access to the park, including exclusive perks that day visitors can't – early access before the opening hours and after hours. In addition, every stay has a breakfast buffet and dinner included, which means more time for gazing at wild animals. And if you are after a real treat, the newly opened Le Mökki restaurant offers four and six-course degustation menus.
Thanks to the 67.250 solar panels installed above the parking lot, the resort's green credentials are well deserved. Their foundation supports the reintroduction of different species back into their native habitat. If you are still not impressed, Pairi Daiza plans to open the biggest greenhouse in Europe by 2024.
