Sandcastle Hotel - Cool Hotel

If your idea of a relaxing vacation is sand, sun, and surf, you won’t get anything closer to it than the world’s largest and only sand castle hotel made entirely of sand on Weymouth beach in Dorset, UK. But don’t expect any amenities here like showers or bathrooms – you’re going to have to make do without.

The hotel, design to look like a sandcastle, is the brainchild of sculptor Mark Anderson, and was created as a publicity stunt for

It took a team of 7 people eight long days — over 600 hours — to build the 50 foot (15 meter) square by 13 foot (4 meter) high sand hotel using 1,000 tons of sand and seawater.

The open air family room with a sea-side view has a double and single bed made of sand which will set you back a mere $21 (£10) a night to sleep under the starry skies. You can wake up to the ocean when the “tide laps through the door.”

“The beds are made of sand so it can get everywhere, especially between the toes.” said Anderson. And other places I’m sure.
