We like to keep it fun but informative here at HotelChatter so our series, What is This?, is devoted to odd-looking items in hotels that upon first glance look as if they serve only a decorative purpose. But everything happens for a reason, right? And we're here to tell you what these things really do.

We saw a friend Facebook a picture of her bathroom at the trendy W Mexico City and we were all like, WHAT. IS. THIS. So we went over to the W's website and found out that yes, there is a hammock suspended over the bathtub. Here's how the folks at the Doble Ve describe it:

Zone, suspended over the bath area in the silken hammockover the warm (or cooling) bathtub in the silken hammock.

Did you get that it's a silken hammock? Anyways, we're all for adventurous design but we are just imagining all sorts of difficulties climbing into this hammock. And we'd be naked, yes? That wouldn't be pretty. That said, we'd be willing to give it a try--before we had any tequila. Alcohol and hammocks over bathtubs do not mix. At all.

Wanna give it a go? Rates at the W Mexico City start at just $189USD for a Spectacular room.

Since you all seemed to enjoy our photos of Goldeneye in Jamaica, we thought we'd do you one better and post this video, taken inside one of the Beach Cottages. That hammock is possibly the most inviting one we've ever seen, and the cottage's spitting-distance proximity to the beach doesn't hurt either!

Sheraton Fiji Has Cool Pool But Half-Finished Rooms

The Sheraton Fiji Resort re-opened this month after a $22 million renovation, and the concept pics gave us high hopes about the results, especially when it came to the swimming pool.

The pool is now a 13,000 square-foot lagoon and it has three sections, meaning that noisy, splashing kids get banished to one part of it (we hope), and we can do the relaxed, sunbathing thing somewhere far away. Apparently they also have underwater day seats and overwater hammocks, two features that get us a bit giddy because, well, in case you haven’t guessed, we love good hotel pools.

But there are a few post-renovation (or perhaps, still mid-renovation) blues going down at the Sheraton Fiji.

Hammock Dreaming at This Super Cool Hotel in Patagonia

  Site Where: Ladrilleros 105, Puerto Natales, Chile

We just found this hotel through the Tablet Hotels application on Facebook (oh yeah, we're into that!) and we wanna go like right now.

It's called Hotel Indigo and it thankfully has nothing to do with the cookie-cutter "lifestyle" brand from IHG Hotels.

Hotel Indigo is located in the Chilean part of Patagonia in Puerto Natales. It's a bit difficult to get to but probably worth it.

The 29-room hotel offers super killer views of the Last Hope Fjord and is close to the Torres del Paine park. But what's really great about this hotel is that it's practically architectural eye candy and stylish inside to boot. Not something you would usually expect from a hotel in Patagonia.

The hotel has wireless internet, a spa, a restaurant and lounge bar and a hammock in the lobby. We love hammocks here. But the bestest part is the price. Room rates start at $160--totally reasonable for such a cool hotel.
