Thankfully European travel is not an entire wipe out this summer with accommodation in the form of floating luxury in a green list location comes in the shape of Sunborn Gibraltar
This a five-star yacht hotel moored in a marina on Western Europe’s southernmost tip, introduces a new concept of luxury to this famously exclusive setting.
The hotel measures 142-metres in length and comprises 189 luxuriously appointed rooms together with banqueting suites, bars, cocktail lounge and restaurants, plus a tranquil plunge pool and sundeck, offering guests an opportunity to still enjoy the ultimate indulgent unique hotel experience in a European location – a green list one!
Inside, the yacht provides all the quality and comfort of a top hotel. Suites are light, spacious and luxurious – with views of the Rock, sea and marina – and guest amenities are plentiful.
For example, there is the Infinity Spa featuring Elemis treatments, a fully-equipped fitness suite and a casino.
Sunborn say that this floating hotel is an ideal base from which to explore Gibraltar – with its sunny climate, relaxed international atmosphere and picturesque historical location making it a favoured destination for visitors all year round.
You’ll discover panoramic vistas from the summit of the Rock, safe beaches, watersports and ancient limestone caves – all within a short distance from this floating luxury in a green list location.
Besides the Moorish Castle, there are some 31 miles of Second World War tunnels as well as Great Siege Tunnels. St Michael’s Cave is a lattice of limestone caverns within the Upper Rock Nature Reserve. And the main hall here has been converted into a 400-capacity auditorium with a colour-changing light display.
The Gibraltar Skywalk is a glass viewing platform providing sweeping views over three countries and is actually higher than The Shard. Visitors can also ride the cable car to the top of the Rock, or if they are feeling more energetic – hike, which would enable them to take in all the important historical sites on the way up.
Prices start from £187 per night www.sunborngibraltar.com
