We're always so surprised and happy when someone finds our little resort nestled among the oak and Redwood trees here on the shores of Clear Lake and we're especially tickled by the fact that the author of this blog comes to us from across the country as blogger Jessica Holmes finds spends the days she's not traveling eating her way through New York.
We've shared media with Hotel Costa Verde in Costa Rica the past. This place is actually a retired 727 that overlooks the jungles of Costa Rica where you spend time relaxing in this retired aircraft. We see this place as something that's rather fancy, rather than just "plane." For those of you still reading, congratulations - or condolences.
While we're pretty happy with our repurposing of vintage railroad cabooses for our property, we can only imagine what it takes to repurpose a cruise ship for a hotel. But that's what it looks like the Sun Cruise Resort has done in South Korea. We know that you can easily lift a 50 ton railroad caboose with the right crane but we don't know how in the world you lift a cruise ship onto a cliff. Never mind that, this place is pretty neat. We don't have a pun for this one, unfortunately, and there is also the chance that this was purpose-built rather than being an actual cruise ship. Okay, we really do have a pun but we can't wait so we're moving on.
Now, the place. It's actually a hotel built to resemble a large elephant or wooly mammoth, to our eyes. The best part is, apparently, the bell staff are extraordinarily adept at dealing with trunks. We warned you that we were excited about this pun, but you may be saying 'tusk, tusk' to yourself about now. Anyhow, if you ever find yourself in Sri Lanka this looks like quite the place. Although we're kinda partial to the boot, ourselves, and it looks like a great place to tie one on! Yeah.
