El Cosmico - Marfa, TX, USA

Although it may not be your usual 5-star experience, El Cosmico has its quirks and eccentricities that make it unique. Beautifully restored vintage trailers, peculiar tepees and well-equipped safari tents make up this 18 acre nomadic hotel in the remote, yet artsy city of Marfa, in the far West Texas. Inspired by America’s hippie movement and traditional Indian beliefs, renowned architects and ingenious students have managed to create an oasis of calm and creative energy in the middle of nowhere, offering travelers something that no other place really does - the chance to express themselves and to live, at least for a while, in a community of like-minded folks.
