A new floating hotel has been built on Japan’s Setouchi inland sea. The sizeable cruise/hotel vessel boasts a total of 19 guest rooms and holds exclusive breathtaking views for its guests. Let yourself be inspired by this edition of Luxury Hotels – Janpa’s Upcoming Floating Hotel Guntu!
We are definitely adding Japan’s Guntu hotel to our list of must visit Luxury Hotels of 2018. What makes it so noteworthy? Guntu is a floating hotel located in the waters of the Seto Inland Sea. Designed by architect Yasushi Horibe, this hotel has been named after a type of local crab.
Passengers will be able to explore a slew of islands using tender boats that will be ferrying folks back and forth from the upscale watercraft. However, it’s important to note that all cruises will begin and end in Onomichi, Hiroshima for the first few journeys.
Guntu looks like a cross between a houseboat and a small cruise ship from the outside, but inside it can give luxury hotels a run for its money.
All nineteen of its rooms offer amazing terraces so you can enjoy the fabulous sea views.
The design features varying shades and grains of wood which serve to add warmth to the hotel interior design.
The common areas are flooded with natural light thanks to the large windows.
Guests have access to a spa, sauna, and gym. Off ship activities to those who are interested.
Japanese food and seasonal dishes are on the menu at Guntu along with a sushi counter where guests can enjoy fresh catch including Setouchi Sushi.
Everything about this beautiful hotel is designed to create a sense of calm and tranquility. It’s definitely worth adding to your list of must-visit hotels. You can choose to stay up to three nights on the ship. One night will cost you approximately $2,700 USD, though the ticket includes meals and activities.
