Beautiful Castle Hotels You Can Stay In While Travelling | Clozette


A lot of us girls who grew up reading fairy tales once yearned to be a princess. Vast castles, princes on handsome steeds, and bejewelled crowns were the stuff of our childhood fantasies. But what if we told you that these musings could be your reality — at least for a night? Fulfil your childhood dreams and feel like a queen by opting to stay in luxurious castle hotels. There are tons of castle-turned-hotels that you can visit as you travel around the world. At least once in your life, book a night in these opulent accommodations and experience royal living.


Hirado Castle, Nagasaki, Japan



History buffs will surely love this 16th century castle built by the ruling Matsura Samurai Clan during the Feudal Era. This castle situated at the top of the hill will be Japan’s first castle to offer overnight stays. That's right — one of the castle’s structures, Kaiju Yagura, is being renovated into an accommodation facility to receive guests around summer next year. So if you’re planning to visit Nagasaki Prefecture in the following year, skip out the usual accommodations by booking a night in Hirado Castle. Want to stay for free?

Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur, India



The 347-room palace was once the principal residence of the Jodhpur royal family. Perched on the highest point in the city, Umaid Bhawan Palace is one of the few castle hotels in India that can give you a glimpse of the bygone era. A stay here will inspire you, as you’ll be afforded breath-taking views of the vast sand dunes and the historic Blue City that surround the palace. Enjoy a dip in their subterranean Zodiac pool, an afternoon walk in their lush gardens with dancing peacocks to complete your luxurious experience.

Built in 19th century, Ciragan Palace Kempinski will give you a taste of life in a genuine Ottoman Palace. Spend an extravagant night in this Baroque-styled palace overlooking the Bosphorus strait and experience a relaxing resort ambience in the middle of the city. Try out their rejuvenating spa facilities, especially their winter-heated infinity pool. For those with a taste for fine dining can also have a blissfully diverse culinary experience in the hotel’s restaurants and bars. 




La Mamounia, Marrakesh, Morocco



If you’re planning a trip in the old city of Marrakesh, why not stay a night or two in this Moroccan palace? The ornate Moorish architecture of the legendary palace is a testament to Marrakesh’s rich tradition and history. Aside from the Insta-worthy splendour of its tiled courtyards, La Mamounia is worth the splurge for their hospitable service, luxurious spas, and wide selection of gourmet food. 



Leeds Castle, Kent, England



There are a number of castle hotels in the UK, but Leeds Castle in England offers something more special. Having been up for 900 years now, it has once been the residence of a number of historical figures. It has once been the residence of Catherine of Aragon, the infamous King Henry VIII’s first wife. Enjoy a cosy yet regal night in suites decorated in period-style elements with a contemporary twist. If you’re an outdoorsy traveller, you can even opt to choose their medieval-style Knight’s Glamping experience in the castle’s vineyard.

Fashion Week in every major fashion capital has served as an inspiration for many a lady through its history and the latest season has been no exception. So we’ve condensed some styles for you this fall. If you’re looking for ways to pumpkin spice up your wardrobe this season, you’ve come to the right place.


Modern romance



Whether you’re a tomboy or a girly girl, there are ways to wear this style to suit either vibe. Pair a silky ruffled top with fitted pants and short heeled boots for an upgraded biker chick look, or go full glam in a maxi dress with striking prints ala Givenchy.

Punk is not dead 



Everyone owns a piece of plaid clothing, whether it’s a simple skirt or button-down shirt. But it’s time to breathe some new life into it. Pair your combat boots with some rolled up trousers to show them off and put on your best smirk because it’s time to revel.

Walking on the wild side 



Have animal prints ever really gone out of style? Choose one that’s as subtle as snake print or big and bold like leopard or zebra and you’ve got yourself an outfit that catches the eye and envy of everyone else in the room.

Going green 

 

The colour of the season is jade green or a dark teal, but whichever way you look at it, it’s a gorgeous shade to wear this fall. Add a pop of colour to your look with a ruched skirt, denim pants or a beautiful structured bag and you’re ready to step out.


Night sky




Make people do double-takes with this understated style of sequins by incorporating them into casual daily looks, or make them scream fabulous as you turn heads with a full-length sparkling number. Either way, it’s fun, flirty and totally sexy.

Sport some socks with your shoes, too, to add more flair to these looks.
