Staying in a Jet plane – The Airplane Hotel Suite

Architecture, Transport • 951 Views • 1 Comment

If you’re a fan of sixties aviation and hotel rooms with lot and lots of teak wood paneling then you’re in the right place.

This unusual airplane hotel suite is situated by the coast in Manuel Anton, Costa Rica. The owners of the hotel rescued the huge frame of the 1965 Boeing 727  from a San Jose airport. It took five trucks to transport it in pieces to it’s final destination in the jungle. Previously the aircraft was used to transport travelers around the world for South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines in Colombia.

The interior of the plane has been decorated with hand-carved teak from Java, Indonesia. The suite features two air conditioned bedrooms, a flat screen TV, a kitchen, a dining area, spiral staircase and of course a wonderful sea view.
