Etihad Airways plane gets transformed into cool accommodation
For all aviation geeks out there, this hotel might be one you'll definitly want to look into.
An Etihad plane was transformed into a boutique hotel in Wales. The plane was salvaged from a scrapyard in Cardiff and brought over to Pembrokeshire, Wales Apple Campsite by Toby Rhys-Davies.
The fuselage had to be cut into two parts due to its size to facilitate the plane's transfer to the campsite.
This concept is not new to Rhys-Davies, however. He has other salvaged items at his campsite, and previously refurbished a 1970's Lockheed JetStar.
The transformed Etihad fuselage is sectioned into two parts; one serving as a quirky hotel room with two beds, kitchen, and bathroom, and the second section being a barbeque area. The hotel room has its own wooden terrace where you can enjoy some quiet time outside.
Rhys-Davies kept the plane’s original kitchen, overhead compartments, windows and emergency exits. A shower has been added along with a sliding door leading to the terrace.
You can stay at the unique hotel for US$250 a-night. The hotel room accommodates up to four people. Rhys-Davies named the experience “Arabian Nights”, and planted palm trees around the area to live up to its name.
