Exceptional”

Me and my wife have been there for our anniversary and we found it absolutely lovely and a perfect place for getaway. The staff were very very kind and understanding. The night we had dinner there was a staff member Usha Kiran and their team were absolutely lovely , they helped us in choosing the best food and cocktails. We’d love to come again and looking forward to enjoy their hospitality again.

5* Couldn’t Recommend Enough. Plus made great allowances for my disability!”

We booked the Sunborn Yacht Hotel as a surprise for my dad’s 50th birthday. Even before we arrived the staff were so lovely, we called ahead to ensure the hotel could cater to me being in a wheelchair and they were very helpful. The check in process was easy and we were given all the information we needed. When my dad arrived to his room he had a cake, balloons and bubbly waiting as we booked the Birthday Arrival package which was way worth the money it looked great and he was so surprised! The rooms are absolutely stunning just as was the whole of the hotel - it didn’t disappoint in the slightest it was perfect for the special occasion! The staff were super helpful and upgraded my room due to needing some further upgrades due to my disability and illness. They were so understanding and catered to my every need. Honestly couldn’t recommend enough the rooms were beautiful, the whole hotel was beautiful, the bar and restaurant was lovely, the staff were so helpful and kind and we all had the best time! Couldn’t recommend enough!

Fabulous for a weekend away ”

Stayed for one night and wished it had been two! Really easy to get to, lots to do for a weekend right in the doorstep and a fabulous new experience.

Sunborn London

Docklands, London, England, United Kingdom

  • Full Review
  • A floating super yacht hotel with serious novelty factor
  • Moored right opposite Excel conference center
  • Minutes' walk from DLR train station
  • Easy access to London's City Airport
  • Relatively spacious rooms, most with water views
  • In-room Lavazza coffeemakers and Sony tablets
  • Restaurant and terrace bar with water views
  • Far from tourist center
  • No fitness facilities

Bottom Line

The 136-room Sunborn London is an upper-mid-range hotel in the form of a 394-foot super yacht moored in London's Royal Victoria Dock. Rooms are pleasant, surprisingly spacious, and most have views over the water, though decor is more cruise liner than luxury yacht. Some rooms have spacious decks and big soaking tubs; all have coffeemakers, minibars, and flat-screen TVs. Eating and drinking options are solid though lack of fitness facilities feels like an oversight. Overall, for maritime enthusiasts with business in the area it's perfect, but tourists wanting to explore the capital's attractions should look elsewhere. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Oyster Hotel Review

An upper-mid-range floating hotel set on a super yacht .

sunborn yacht hotel stay

The Sunborn London is not only the capital's only floating hotel, it's the only one occupying a 394-foot super yacht. Built without an engine, however, it was towed from its native Finland and opened as upper-mid-range water-based lodgings in 2014. From the outside -- with its sleek marine lines -- it looks every inch the luxury vessel. Inside , however, the look and feel is deliberately more traditional, with polished brass railings, teakwood paneling, and the occasional nautical touches across all five of its floors. The resulting vibe is certainly more cruise ship (albeit an attractive one) than billionaire's playground. There's plenty of outside space on deck for enjoying the surrounding docks -- if not the most attractive of views -- accompanied by the sound of planes taking of and landing at the nearby City Airport. A solid pick for the novelty factor and for guests with business at the nearby conference center, this hotel is a bit far from main tourist attractions.

Moored in Royal Victoria Dock to the east of London's Canary Wharf

The hotel is permanently moored in the London ’s Royal Victoria Dock in the Docklands area in the east of the capital. The city's largest conference and events venue -- the Excel Center -- is located right opposite while the DLR (Dockland's Light Railway) station of Custom House is just minutes away on foot. From here it's just about 15 minutes by train to London's business district of Canary Wharf. While it's not ideally located for tourists, public transport links to the city center in around half an hour. City Airport however is right nearby and takes less than 10 minutes by car. 

Relatively spacious rooms with Sony tablets and Lavazza coffeemakers

sunborn yacht hotel stay

The hotel's 136 rooms are certainly a lot larger than your average cruise ship cabins, but all follow cruise liner styling with plenty of polished teak, brass trim, and maritime touches. Unlike a cruise ship, all rooms are outward facing and most have large picture windows overlooking the water (some have small furnished balconies too). Amenities include free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs plus sitting areas, and a Sony tablet for web browsing and ordering room service. Lavazza coffeemakers and minibars with free water also come standard. Clean, well-maintained bathrooms provide wall-mounted hairdryers, walk-in showers, and Molton Brown products. The top-end Yacht Executive Suite we saw had its own private sauna and large balcony.

Restaurant and terrace with water views, free Wi-Fi, and a small spa with massage treatments

sunborn yacht hotel stay

The hotel's Lands End restaurant provides a pleasant space awash with mirrored glass and teak paneling with large windows overlooking the water. A la carte and set breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus are served with British, Asian, and Mediterranean influences. The adjoining bar provides house cocktails, snacks, and meals as well as an outdoor terrace with views of Canary Wharf and the O2 arena. A small spa also provides a range of massage treatments though there are no fitness facilities on-site. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Fingal, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Opened in January 2019, this handsome ship is in fact a beautiful 23-room floating hotel , permanently docked in historic Leith in Edinburgh. Once a Northern Lighthouse Board ship, it was revamped by the team at The Royal Yacht Britannia and now offers guests a seriously luxurious stay, with various types of cabin available and a deck with glorious views out to the Scottish capital. 

Once inside it hardly feels like you're on a boat at all. Bedrooms are elegant, with king-size beds, smart TVs and rain showers in the bathrooms. Onboard you'll find the stylish Lighthouse Bar, where there's afternoon tea or evening aperitifs, and a magnificent ballroom accessed via a sweeping staircase.

Good Hotel, London, England, UK

You can feel good about staying in this floating hotel. The Good Hotel in east London's Royal Victoria Docks is more than just a Thames-side accommodation option. The hotel is also a social-good project, hiring and training unemployed locals. There are also properties in Antigua, Guatemala and Amsterdam, each with their own philanthropic endeavours. 

<p>And just because it's all about giving back doesn't mean it can't feel luxurious.

And, of course, it has a dreamy location on the glassy Holandsfjorden fjord, built on stilts above the water.</p>

Svart, Norway

Set in the wilds of northern Norway, at the base of the Svartisen glacier, this hotel  is held up for its green credentials. When it opens in 2024 (after being delayed in 2022), it's set to be the world's first 'energy-positive' hotel (meaning it'll generate more energy than it uses), since the roof is covered in solar panels. And, of course, it has a dreamy location on the glassy Holandsfjorden fjord, built on stilts above the water.

The hotel's design is inspired by a “fiskehjell”, a wooden structure used to dry out fish, as well as traditional fishermen's homes. And it looks especially striking against its mountain backdrop. Beyond ogling the hotel and surrounding landscapes, guests can relax at the two-storey spa or get involved with activities, from sailing on the fjords in summer to cross-country skiing in winter.

Six Senses Laamu, Maldives

In an archipelago of brilliantly white islands surrounded by the azure Indian Ocean, it would be almost criminal not to make the most of the water. That's why, in the Maldives, there are plenty of hotels with floating (or seemingly floating) rooms. But Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Laamu Atoll. Surrounded by a beautiful coral reef, there are 97 beachfront and water villas, all crafted using local and sustainable materials.

Each over-water villa looks as if it's floating on the transparent waters, and is completely secluded from the rest, with incredible views over the ocean and out to Maldivian nature. The hotel has plenty of facilities too, with an ice-cream parlour, an over-water wine cellar and their signature Chill Bar, which is also built on stilts over the sea.

Arctic Bath Hotel, Sweden

This one-of-a-kind property is a true floating hotel. In summer, it glides serenely on the Lule River, and in winter, when the ice sets in, it's fixed to one spot, accessible via a pontoon. Arctic Bath Hotel's intriguing design draws inspiration from the woods, with a criss-crossed log exterior and a string of sleek guest rooms, each with direct access to the water. There's a modern cabin for five people back on land too. 

Expect saunas, a hot tub, spa treatments, a restaurant and bar – and the opportunity to indulge in a Swedish tradition: ice swimming. The central open-air ice pool is 'heated' to 4°C (39°F), so you can take a bracing dip before retiring to the sauna. You can also strike out on excursions including a moose-spotting safari, an ice fishing expedition and a Northern Lights snowmobile tour.

Angsana Velavaru, Maldives

This little isle is home to yet another amazing Maldivian resort. Angsana Velavaru is set on the stunning Velavaru Lagoon and has 33 'InOcean' villas, all with direct access to the water and spectacular views. The double-storey villas offer a private infinity pool, and for even more overwater action, guests can relax from hammocks suspended above the ocean.

A vast bedroom, luxurious bathroom and an enormous living area with plenty of space for dining complete this majestic over-water mansion. Guests can also indulge in award-winning treatments such as a honey sesame body polish and an olive oil body conditioner, all created using local native ingredients.

Pumphouse Point, Tasmania, Australia

In the wilds of Tasmania, Lake St Clair has some of the most impressive accommodation on the island territory. The Pumphouse at Pumphouse Point is an old industrial building, 820 feet (250m) out into the glacial waters with spectacular surrounding scenery. Inside, it's modern and minimalist, allowing you to focus on the wonderful mountain views through its huge windows. 

<p>The Pumphouse has three floors, all with lake view rooms, and a gorgeous, inviting lounge with a wood burning fire for cosy evenings in. The pontoon that leads out from the shore has ample space for deck chairs, so you can grab a book or a glass of wine and take in the wilderness for an afternoon. For active types, there are nature walks in the surrounding forest, including part of the world-famous Overland Track route. </p>  <p><a href="https://www.loveexploring.com/galleries/133512/the-worlds-most-futuristic-hotels"><strong>Now discover the world's most futuristic hotels</strong></a></p>

<p>Stunning resorts aren't hard to come by in Thailand – the country has a plethora of fancy beachside hotels and luxury treetop accommodation.

The Float House, River Kwai Resort, Thailand

Stunning resorts aren't hard to come by in Thailand – the country has a plethora of fancy beachside hotels and luxury treetop accommodation. But this boutique hotel is special: it sits right on the Khwae Noi River with a number of pretty thatched villas for guests. 

Each villa has its own veranda directly over the water, with a swing for lounging on and deck chairs for sunbathing. Primarily made from wood and thatch, the hotel blends beautifully with the surrounding forest, and come nighttime its lighting shimmers in reflections on the water. From the hotel you can hire canoes or try out bamboo rafting, and there's a fascinating cave system to explore nearby. You can also enjoy a cultural Mon dance show over dinner.

Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, India

Often lauded as the most romantic city in India, Udaipur has prime position on the shores of Lake Pichola. And no hotel is better placed here than the Taj Lake Palace , which sits 650 feet (198m) off the shore in the calm, shimmering waters. Formerly a summer retreat for the Mewar dynasty, it hasn't lost any of its luxurious royal vibes. 

Many of its original features, including free-flowing fountains and intricate fretwork, have been retained, and its grandeur is unparalleled in the city. Balconies made of marble offer fantastic views back to the enormous sandstone City Palace, and a pleasantly cool pool is the place to chill out after a day's sightseeing. As one of Rajasthan's most popular destinations, Udaipur can be frenetic and often noisy, but being on the water here gives visitors a rare sense of peace and quiet.

Off Paris Seine, Paris, France

What better way to enjoy the romance of the Seine than to sleep on it? You can do this at Off Paris Seine , a glamorous, 4-star hotel right in the middle of the city. At more than 260 feet (79m), this is the longest vessel permanently moored on the Seine, and its striking design is the handiwork of Parisian boat architect Gérard Ronzatti.

Rooms have excellent views of either the Right or Left Bank, and are individually designed with wall murals or bold, somewhat garish paint (if you're into that, ask for the orange room). In the lounge bar there's a plunge pool for those hot, Parisian summer days, where the city's trendiest locals come for sundowners on the decks or glorious brunches at weekends.

Uakari Floating Lodge, Brazil

Deep in the Brazilian Amazon's Várzea – a flooded forest – this floating lodge is the place to stay if wildlife is your bag. Right in the thick of the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve, the lodge is surrounded by a bio-diverse wilderness where monkeys swing in the tree canopies and sloths idle on branches.

<p>From your villa's veranda you can spot plenty of exotic birds, from tui parakeets to scarlet macaws, and on nature walks you're likely to see the curious-looking bald uakari monkeys, as well as black caiman, both pink and grey river dolphins and sloths. The lodge is part of the <a href="https://reefandrainforest.co.uk/tours/wild-brazil-off-the-beaten-track">Reef & Rainforest Tours 'off-the-beaten-track' itinerary</a>, which takes in some of Brazil's lesser-visited highlights. </p>

As part of an exclusive new trip offered by Off The Map Travel, adventurous guests will be able to stay the night in one of these incredible glass-walled Aurora Huts on a hidden part of the Fjallsarlon glacial lagoon in southern Iceland. The two hotel rooms float atop the water's surface in summer, but in wintertime they freeze into the lake and can only be accessed via an all-terrain vehicle.
