The concept of floating hotels, the shape and size of a super yacht is catching on. Intended for some of the most iconic cities around the globe – London, Barcelona, New York, Hong Kong, St Petersburg and Tokyo the yacht hotel destined for use in Gibraltar arrives in just three weeks time.
Sunborn Gibraltar will complement her surroundings and form part of the architecture of Ocean Village marina. The five star grand yacht hotel is ready to play a pivotal role as the first of a fleet of five star yacht hotels that will change perceptions on luxury travel forever.
This 189 room purpose-built five star yacht with fine dining restaurants, a grand ballroom, cocktail and lounge bars, a Spa and fitness centre, concierge and abundant conference facilities will bring a new level of deluxe hospitality to Gibraltar.
Although very much a self-contained floating vessel, the 143 metre Sunborn Gibraltar will function like a normal building when moored alongside at Ocean Village. Normal utility and waste connections to sewage, water and power lines will operate with the option for onboard generators to provide back-up electricity should the need arise. Sunborn Gibraltarwill not be able to discharge waste into the water.
Unlike a normal building, the yacht hotel will be ready to open within three months of arrival in Gibraltar – no three or four year noisy construction process concealed by unsightly hoardings.
Sunborn will be sending out invitations for Sunborn Gibraltar’s premiere, a special preview event where the interior of the new yacht hotel will be revealed to stakeholders, local businesses and Gibraltar’s media.
