They look like superyachts but without engines we are not sure that they qualify as such.
Nevertheless, Sunborn International is pioneering this novel approach to the development of exclusive accommodation in the form of super yacht hotels.
Super yachts have become the world’s ultimate symbol of wealth and exclusivity and Sunborn’s unique concept combines the privacy of a super yacht with all the amenities of a luxury hotel.
Launching two such hotels in March 2014, Sunborn London will be operated by ISS Hotel Division London and Sunborn Gibraltar will operate under Sunborn International.
The hotel group has invested over €200 million in the two new super yacht hotels and both have been designed to the highest specification, offering exquisite accommodation, facilities and exceptional service.
Sunborn London will be located in the Royal Victoria docks, next to ExCeL London.
Originally serving as Sunborn Princess in Finland, the vessel has undergone a complete refurbishment of the exterior and interiors and will be brought to London in time for its opening in March.
The 120 metre, yacht will offer 138 spacious cabins and suites over 5 decks with entertaining space, including a fine dining restaurant, bar, auditorium and conference rooms, state of the art gym and vast outside decks and private terraces.
€150 million has been spent to create the 142 metre Sunborn Gibraltar which will be located in the new Ocean Village Marina
It will offer guest’s uninterrupted views across the Gibraltar Straits and to the tip of Africa. This super yacht hotel will offer the first official 5 star hotel accommodation to visitors of the rock, with 18,500²m of floor space the hotel will have 189 rooms and suites over 7 decks.
