Japanese theme park’s floating hotel room lets you spend a night bobbing through the sea | Evening Standard

If Robinson Crusoe holidays are your type of thing, you’ll want to know about a new hotel concept that’s about to take Japan by storm.

Huis Ten Bosch, a theme park on the edge of Nagasaki, is planning to launch a fleet of pod-like, capsule hotel rooms that float in the water, so guests can wake up at a new destination each morning.

The theme park is part of a 39,000 square metre uninhabited island, so the bubble-shaped sea taxis can ferry their passengers around its unspoilt coast through the night while they snooze peacefully.

The nifty sea transport works via  GPS, so you wouldn’t have to worry about steering yourself to dry land while half-asleep. The rooms have a bathroom downstairs, and a living space up above.
