Why We Love This Hotel
- Sunborn London, the capital's only yacht hotel, has views of The O2, Canary Wharf and the Emirates Air Line cable car
- "This is a rather surreal yet intriguing place to stay," says The Times
- The hotel featured in TV series "The Apprentice"
The "swanky" (CNN) superyacht was a luxury spa hotel in Finland, before the vessel was refurbished and towed to London's Royal Victoria Dock at a cost of US$67 million. The hotel epitomises "total luxury", according to SquareMeal.
It has a spiral staircase reminiscent of the Titanic's, a centrepiece chandelier and Art Deco interiors.
You can sample the Afternoon Tea Under the Sea, which includes a selection of sea-themed assorted cupcakes and sandwiches, or hit the third deck and head to the Sundown Bar for a cocktail while watching the sun set over Canary Wharf. The Lands End Restaurant serves British, Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.
The Symphony Spa has two treatment rooms and an outdoor relaxation deck. The rooms -- they're not referred to as cabins -- are "spacious and light" (The Daily Telegraph) and have tablets for ordering room service. Wi-Fi is free.
Yacht Classic Rooms are split between Dockside and Riverside.
