There’s never a dearth of unique hotel projects and with China showing an insatiable demand for luxury products and services, a unique new project will now see a former Soviet Aircraft Carrier being revamped into a luxury hotel. The Binhai Aircraft Park has bought the Kiev carrier from the Russian government and will soon be turned into China’s first aircraft carrier hotel. The ship will get rid of its sparse trappings and come fitted with luxury accommodations. The owners believe that China’s burgeoning role as a world superpower (the nation recently launched its first aircraft carrier) will spur interest in the floating hotel.
Pricing and a launch date for the hotel, have yet to be announced.
