New Super Yacht Hotel Opens in London

See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Vacationers wanting to enjoy the spoils of a yacht can now get a taste in London aboard the Sunborn, a yacht hotel docked on the Thames at Royal Victoria Docks. The five-story, 334-foot yacht features 136 rooms and suites and provides all of the luxury of a super yacht, without the engine and the sailing. Sunborn Superyacht Hotel will not sail and instead serve as a new London hotel, with rates ranging from $300 to $1,600 per night and the largest suites able to accommodate 20 guests.

Ninety percent of the yacht’s rooms and suites feature balconies and terraces for guests, with Classic rooms providing one king or two twin beds and a sitting area with sofa. While the ship doesn’t offer kids’ programs found on cruises, children “sail” free on the Sunborn. The 4-star hotel includes fine dining, lounges and bars, with special stay and dine packages available.

Barcelona is slated to receive a super yacht hotel in 2015.
