airplane hotel trend

Hotel Costa Verde in Costa Rica has “most exclusive hotel suite in Costa Rica.”

The fully outfitted, meticulously detailed, two bedroom, Boeing 727 fuselage suite. We have refurbished a vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe, which in its prior life shuttled globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines (Colombia).

Our 727 home features two air conditioned bedrooms, a flat screen TV, a kitchenette, dining area foyer; an ocean view terrace; a private entrance up a river rock, spiral staircase; and 360 degrees of surrounding gardens.


I certainly can’t afford the US$400-500/night stay, but one can certainly dream! It’s amazing how refurbishing and repurposing is catching on and becoming something high-end (definitely from trash to treasures!)

And from high end to budget travel, using old planes is definitely a trend that extends the flying experience from travel to where you’ll crash for the night. Check out the Jumbo Hostel at the entrance of the Stockholm-Arlanda Airport in Sweden. Jumbo Hostel was perviously posted here.
