Sandcastle Hotel


It’s the world’s largest, first and only sand castle hotel made entirely of sand on Weymouth beach in Dorset, UK. The hotel was the brainchild of sculptor Mark Anderson who was commissioned by the website LateRooms.com, designed to look like a giant sand castle.

It took a team of 6 and a digger eight days, laboring 12 to 14 hours a day, 600 hours altogether to build the 50 foot (15 meter) square by 13 foot (4 meter) high sand hotel using 1,000 tons of sand and water from the sea.

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.

One word of warning, the sand does get everywhere, but it is a bit of an adventure since it has no roof. And what you won’t find there is a closet or any shower or toilet facilities, so you’re going to have to sleep with your legs crossed.

  1. Looking at those “beds”, I wonder whether I would wake up with tons of sand in my eyes and on my face if I tried to sleep on that sandy pillow!
