Daily Delight: A room too good to re-fuselage

02 July 2015 Jay Garcia

Lodged in the treetops of Costa Rica’s rainforest is a hotel that almost looks like something out of Air Crash Investigations.

Using a refurbished Boeing 727 airframe, this hotel was transported to the jungle piece by piece and perched on a 15-metre pedestal on the edge of a national park (see below).

The plane’s interior is panelled in Costa Rican teak and the furnishings are hand-carved Indonesian teak, according to the hotel’s website.

The vintage 727 houses two bedrooms: one with two queen-sized beds and the other with one queen-sized bed, each with its own private bathroom.

There’s also an ocean-view terrace where common treetop neighbours such as sloths, monkeys and toucans may pay a visit.
