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.
