Seasoned travelers are always looking for new and exciting venues to experience unique adventures. Guntu is a new hotel looking to provide just that, as a new floating hotel in Japan’s Setouchi inland sea.

Designed by architect Yasushi Horibe, Guntu actually travels, taking guests to different destinations along the coast, combining a cruise and hotel into one vessel. There are 19 guests rooms, a gym, bath, beauty salon, lounge, cafe and bar, dining room and sushi bar. The hotel will begin accepting guests for September 2017. Cruises will be offered for anywhere from one to three nights, and will cost 300,000 yen, or $2,700, per night with meals and activities included. Guests can explore smaller islands using tender boat that will ferry them back and forth, though all cruises will begin and end in Onomichi, Hiroshima for the first few journeys.
