Take a Tour of This Incredible Passenger Airliner Converted Into a Luxury Jumbo Jet Tree Hotel
If you have ever wanted to fulfill your fantasy of spending a night in a tree house in a South American forest, then this might make your wish come true and even more. Now your dream tree house can even be a Boeing 727 perched atop the trees.
1 An ambitious project as part of a holiday resort
In one of the most ambitious endeavours, a hospitality group has converted an airliner into a deluxe luxury hotel placed strategically atop the trees making it one of the most unique tree hotels of its kind. The airliner converted to a hotel can be yours to spend a night in but at a high rate of $500 a night.
2 An incredible experience for airliner enthusiasts
For flight fanatics and tree house lovers, this is an incredible experience. The passenger jet plane was supposed to be sold for scrap when the hotel owners hit upon the wackiest of ideas. They decided to convert it into a luxury tree house lodge in the rain forest of Costa Rica in the Manuel Antonio National Park.
3 Transported by trucks to the rain forest
The airplane was dismantled into pieces and transported by trucks from San Jose International airport to Quepos Village in Costa Rica to be set up as a luxury lodge and part of the Costa Verde holiday resort.
4 Discarded as scrap and converted into a hotel in a Costa Rican resort
The jumbo jet tree house hotel in the Costa Rican rainforest cost quite a bit with $500 a night in one of its lavish and well-decorated rooms. A week cost an exorbitant $3600 but guests can have a lifetime experience.
5 At one time it was a passenger jumbo jet
The passenger airliner, a 1965 Boeing 727 was once ferrying passengers for Columbian Avianca Airlines till it was discarded as scrap and purchased by owners of the Costa Verde resort.
6 Luxury at a price
The price of a night at the airliner hotel is equal to a night at London’s Ritz. However, when you compare the experience and see the interiors, you’ll understand the reason for this high price because luxury does come at a price after all.
7 Hand crafted interiors made from teak wood
The interiors have been beautifully crafted where guests can have the run of a well furnished two bedroom suite which comes with added amenities such as a kitchenette, flat screen TV dining room and a terrace with a panoramic view of the sea. The observation deck crafted on the wing of the plane provides magical views of the surrounding scenery.
8 The airplane luxury hotel is a one of a kind experience
The entire jumbo jet tree house has been fitted with hand carved teak wood paneling from cockpit to tail. The wood in fact has been specially harvested in Costa Rica.
From the observation deck on both wings, guests can enjoy a romantic evening watching jungle views and a sunset or sunrise over the ocean.
