Floating Hotel Room Takes You To Desert Island As You Sleep


If you’re looking for a unique experience for your holiday we suggest you take a trip to this Dutch-inspired theme park in Japan.

The Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Nagaski, which is mainly run by robots, definitely shits all over the likes of Alton Towers and Thrope Park . When you see what it has on offer for its visitors you can see why. For starters they’ve introduced the concept of an actual floating hotel.

A floating hotel people! We don’t get that back home. The idea is that these floating hotels, which are more like pods, will transport you to a different part of the theme park’s islands – by sea – whilst you drift off to the land of nod.

The pods themselves are divided into two areas, the top half acts as a bedroom and while the bottom will serve as your bathroom. It also comes with a very large window so you don’t feel like you’re a tin of sardines cut-off from any natural light.

According to The Metro, the Huis Ten Bosh covers 39,000 square meters of uninhabited island. If you think that’s overkill then you’ll be shocked to hear that the owners are in the process of developing more feature attractions across the park.

Bloomberg reports that one of the new features being developed for the park will be a Hunger Games style activity, minus the blood, killing and terrible acting.

Instead of deadly weapons that will maim and kill you, you’ll receive toy guns. It’ll be like a real life version of Halo or Call Of Duty, so expect to come across that shouty-racist-sexist 12-year-old who you can finally kick in the nuts for being a little shite.

Each pod can hold up to four people and will cost you between £30 – £200 per night, which isn’t too bad when you think about it.

So if you’re looking for a good holiday that doesn’t involve interacting with middle-class ‘trustafarians’ with their over-sized backpacks, or loud boisterous British tourists on a stag or hen-do, doing jägerbomb’s then throwing up on their sandals, we suggest you check out the Huis Ten Bosh theme park.
