Phil Schofield, Head of Inbound Marketing at Schofield commented:
“I like the idea of setting sail out to a private island and experiencing a fort out at sea. Surrounded by nothing but great views and being isolated for a peaceful and relaxing stay. Staying in a bubble dome also looks intriguing to experience.”
He also said:
“We found out last year that millennials tend to choose their holiday destinations based on how ‘Instagrammable’ the holiday pictures will look on social media. After searching through the most unique places you can go and stay over for a night’s vacation, the tree hotel, based in Sweden, ranked top of our list, closely followed by the fort out at sea. They both share interesting and characteristic features.”
