On today’s episode of ‘Abandoned Airplane Homestays,’ someone in Costa Rica transformed an abandoned Boeing 727 into a luxury hotel, and it looks like a unique resort suite in the middle of a forest.

At first glance, it may appear that a 727 crash landed into the trees – but that’s far from the truth.

Hotel Costa Verde intentionally put it that way, and there are several ‘room’ options where you can stay inside the plane.

This Boeing 727 hotel offers a lot of room types

Recently, we saw a similar case where someone rescued a Boeing 727 from a boneyard to transform it into an Airbnb.

However, Hotel Costa Verde certainly has something else going on here — because it made sure to completely utilize the 727 to get as many ‘suites’ or ‘rooms’ as possible.

For instance, there’s a ‘Cockpit Cottage’ — which conveniently allows guests to reside in the plane’s cockpit.

The only difference is that it doesn’t look like a conventional Boeing cockpit.

Instead, you get a luxurious space, albeit not spacious enough, brimming with wooden interiors and subtle modifications.

This hotel also offers a ‘Boeing 727 Fuselage Suite’ that gives you a lot more space.

And let us tell you, this is the real deal.

It also has the same interior wooden theme as the Cockpit Cottage but with much more space.

You also get outdoor decks on each of the plane’s wings, where you can experience stunning views of the forest.

Now, isn’t that the perfect vacation destination for aviation enthusiasts?

Luxury airplane hotels are becoming more common

It’s obviously not the first time we have seen an airplane turned into a luxury suite, hotel, room, or even a palace.

The 727 seems to be a popular choice for enthusiasts to make an entire home out of.

But that doesn’t mean other planes don’t have the potential to.

As it turns out, the Boeing 777, too, is a great choice to build your dream home.

Or you could get a Boeing 737 and build a private jet villa.

These properties, if they can be called one, are surely uncommon.

But if you don’t want to live on a plane permanently, suites like the one in Hotel Costa Verde seem ideal.
