Sail Down The Amazon In Style In This Floating Hotel!
November 12, 2012
Luxury cruises are a dime a dozen, but we can assure you there aren’t any quite like this one! Adventure travel company Aqua Expeditions has created a 147-foot-long floating hotel that rolls down the Amazon River in Peru. Designed by architect Jordi Puig, the M/V Aria has 16 suites accommodating a 32-plus crew. Each room has a floor-to-ceiling window, private deck, and lounge area for visitors to take in the Amazon sites and sounds or relax in the tropical sun. With panoramic views of Peruvian trees, birds, and the occasional anaconda, this cruise offers an elegant trip down one of the the world’s most famous rivers. Read more!
During the three-, four-, and seven-night stays, visitors experience unparalleled views of South American land and river animals, including jaguars, bird-eating spiders, and even pink dolphins! After a day of sight-seeing, visitors can relax in the jacuzzi, on the sun deck, or in one of the multiple indoor and outdoor lounges while enjoying gourmet local cuisine. The hotel even includes a gym for those who wish to work out their sea legs!
Such a picturesque trip will cost a pretty penny, however, with packages starting around $5,000.
