The world’s first on-land cruise ship, this hotel takes all the joy of a cruise ship and combines it with the usefulness of staying in one place. The sound of waves lapping at the hull are simulated, so you can imagine that you really are on a cruise. The location is on a cliff at Jeongdongjin beach, renowned for having the best sunrise in Korea. The revolving bar and lounge on the top floor allow you the best view of the sunrise and sunset.
The boat is 165 metres long, 45 metres high and weighs a cool 30,000 tons. God knows how they got it up on the cliff in the first place… perhaps it was marooned up there like Noah’s Ark after the flood. Your room is a nautical-themed condominium or hotel-style room and features a luxurious bed and entertainment centre. You will be spoiled for choice for things to do as there is a lounge, nightclub, karaoke bar, seawater pool and two restaurants.
Check out the observation deck with its glass floor suspended above the crashing waves below. The ship is located next to a park with a sculpture garden so you can wander through curios and beautiful flowers.
