The Hotel Grotta Palazzese in Polignano a Mare, Italy was carved right into the limestone rocks overlooking the Adriatic Sea and features a cave restaurant jutting 74 feet above sea level for an incredible view of the crashing waves.
La Paloma Lodge in Costa Rica - a lodge in the middle of the rainforest - truly puts you smack in the middle of nature and wildlife. Go to sleep each night with the sounds of the jungle all around you. Two thumbs up! Can't say enough about this place! I'd LOVE to go back!!!!
In the town of Polignano a Mare in southern Italy (province of Bari, Apulia), lies a most unique dining experience at the Grotta Palazzese. Open only during the summer months, a restaurant is created inside a vaulted limestone cave, looking outwards toward the sea. The restaurant is part of the Grotta Palazzese hotel located above.
