Floating by the sea is a wonderful and relaxation sensation, and gives you excellent views of the ocean, river or lake where you’re stationed. Some of the hotels are huge, two-stories or more and have floating restaurants, saunas and even business rooms. Other hotels on the water are smaller and have canoes and kayaks for on-the-water fishing and sightseeing.
