An Abandoned Boeing Transformed Into a Luxury Villa with A Swimming Pool In Bali
At the top of the cliff on the coast of Pecatu in Bali, a plane seems to have literally crashed but think again. This former Boeing 737 from the Indonesian company Mandala Air was bought in 2021 by a Russian entrepreneur named Felix Demin. Do you know the reason for such madness? He challenged himself to transform it into a luxury villa.
Since the health crisis, the Indonesian island has suffered from a significant drop in tourism since it has not reopened its borders for more than two years. To attract the attention of tourists again, the travel enthusiast bought the carcass of the plane which was going to be sent to China to be recycled.
Its new owner having delusions of grandeur, it took no less than a dozen workers and a week of hard work to assemble it at the top of the cliff overlooking the sea, before starting the renovation.
Defined as the first luxury hotel inside an airliner, it has two bedrooms with king-size beds, parking, and a helicopter landing pad, the cockpit has become a room bathroom with a circular stone bathtub while one of the wings resembles a garden suspended above an infinity pool.
The luxury jet villa can now be rented to enjoy a breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean by booking on the website of the travel agency Expedia. Depending on the period, the minimum price is around 6780 euros per night.
Besides the fact that this colossal project is aimed at a certain clientele, it is not sure that it is fully in line with current environmental issues. This feeling is also shared by the local population who fear that such a device could have harmful consequences on nature and the coasts in the long term.
