Experience ‘high-flying’ holiday in Boeing aeroplane hotel suite!April 24th, 2009 - 6:19 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 24 (ANI): If you are in Costa Rica and looking for a ‘high-flying’ holiday experience, then check into a luxurious new hotel suite in the country that is built inside a converted vintage Boeing airliner.
Earlier destined for scrap, the fuselage of a 1965 Boeing 727 has now been converted into a two-bedroom suite.
Looking out from a hillside, the Boeing offers views of the ocean and the jungle from balconies built on each wing.
The meticulously refurbished airframe also houses two wood-panelled bedrooms, a kitchenette, dining room and living area and two bathrooms.
The unusual suite on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park could cost between 200 pounds and 250 pounds per night to book.
A spokesman for the Hotel Costa Verde described it as “the most exclusive hotel suite in Costa Rica”.
“We have refurbished a vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe, which in its prior life shuttled globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines of Colombia,” The Telegraph quoted him as saying.
He added: “Our classic airplane, nestled on the edge of the National Park, is perched on a 50-foot pedestal.
“At this height, you will enjoy scenic ocean and jungle views from the hard wood deck built atop the plane’s former right wing.
“The plane’s interior is Costa Rican teak panelling from the cockpit to the tail. Furnishings are hand-carved, teak furniture from Java, Indonesia.
“Enjoy an evening on the terrace while sipping a glass of wine and observing your tree top neighbours: sloths, toucans and monkeys.” (ANI)
