There’s nothing quite like having your holiday mapped out, tickets book and the hotel brochure in your hands. That time of year or that chance to unwind somewhere magical is really exciting and also incredibly liberating. The truth is that most of us tend to try more conventional things when it comes to having a holiday like a getaway in a resort, or a nice hotel room in a beautiful city or even just relaxing at home.
While there’s nothing wrong with any of these, life is simply too short not to try something more interesting. Like staying in a floating hotel! The idea itself just sounds awesome. So if you are in the mood for something a little different and love the idea of literally floating through your vacation – these floating hotels are a definite must!
The Float House River Kwai Resort; Kanchanaburi, Thailand
The Float House was one of the first floating resorts to open in Thailand and there’s nothing more romantic than the River Kwai. The whole area is preserved and is filled with some seriously amazing fauna and flora. Plus, with regards to most floating hotels, the price per night is pretty reasonable. Definitely worth checking out!
Catamaran Apartments; Novi Sad, Serbia
While Serbia doesn’t usually rank highly on our list of places to vacation, it is home to one of the coolest floating hotels in the world. These personalized catamaran apartments will change the way you experience a hotel and promise to be a lot of fun. I can’t imagine anything more romantic than simply floating down a river while you enjoy a meal and some time with your loved one. Definitely more suitable for couples though.
Guntû; Tokyo, Japan
Traveling to Tokyo can be a strange and exciting experience. Everything there seems new and totally different from life in the West. If you have the time (or the money) then spending a few nights in this amazing floating hotel in Seto sea. There are 19 rooms, a gorgeous view, and beautifully styled rooms. Plus all the food is prepared by famous chef Kenzo Sato – so expect to be pampered!
