A new hotel has opened in Paris. It might be more appropriate to say it’s been launched, since the Off Paris Seine isn’t a structure built on dry land, but a floating barge anchored in the middle of Paris’ River Seine.
That might sound anxiety-inducing — the exact opposite of what you want in your Paris vacation.
But not to worry — the boat never undocks from its 13th-arrondissement neighbourhood, and it’s packed with cocktails by renowned mixologist Nicolas Munoz, a plunge pool, and every modern amenity you can imagine.
Take a look around this new kind of hotel.
The poolside bar area is unique in that it is completely open-air, and has the feeling of a roof deck. It will be enclosed with glass in the winter.
There are 54 regular rooms on the ship -- one part stateroom, one part hotel room -- as well as four suites. The beds were designed to look like they float.
The suites rent for about $A353 a night. The Sunset Suite's claim to uniqueness is its obvious orange hue on all applicable surfaces.
