There's A Tequila Themed Hotel In Mexico Where Guests Sleep In A Giant Barrel

Guys, our prayers have finally been answered because some bright spark has created a tequila hotel.

The Matices Hotel de Barricas in Mexico lets guests stay in a barrel - my dream - with its own mini bar and is situated right next to a distillery, which could be dangerous.

If you fancy lining your stomach at some point, there's also a restaurant in a cave five-metres below ground, which is serving up 'traditional regional food, as well as a range of drinks and tequila-based cocktails'. Sounds good to me.

The hotel is located in... Tequila, obviously, within an agave - the plant used to make the spirit - field.

Those who are feeling brave can go on a tour of the distillery, where you can take part in tasting and even make your very own personalised bottle of tequila. Nice.

Now, I know what you're thinking, 'surely this Heaven on Earth is going to cost a fortune' but nope, it's pretty cheap, with prices starting at £150-per-night.

The unique digs are picking up rave reviews online, with happy guest writing: "Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Lovely place with wonderful ambience if you're into the world of tequila. We stayed in one of the four casitas. Large comfortable rooms with oversized bathrooms.

"The rest of the rooms are tequila barrel shaped. Fun. Baths are smaller but if you like the novelty they would be fun. If you're in Tequila to immerse yourself into the world of tequila, this is the place."

Immersing myself into the world of Tequila sounds bloody lovely, mate.

Another satisfied customer wrote: "We stayed inside one of the new barrel units (Sevilla de Villa). Amazingly spacious and the king-size bed was uber comfy.

"Perk, the extra bottles of tequila inside the room. An additional perk was the fact that the location is a three in one. What I mean by that is hotel (fantastic), restaurant (delicious) and distillery (amazing). Make sure to purchase the Carlos Santana triple distilled tequila which is distilled there."
