Vintage 1965 Boeing 727 is now Treehouse Hotel Suite in Costa Rica

Hotel Costa Verde

This phoenix is the most exclusive hotel suite in Costa Rica. A vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe has been refurbished, which in its prior life shuttled globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines (Colombia). This fully outfitted, meticulously detailed, two bedroom, Boeing 727 fuselage suite jets out from the jungle canopy, affording you views that will make you feel like you’re flying.

The airframe was salvaged from its San Jose airport-resting place and carefully transported to the jungles of Manuel Antonio where it has been resurrected into a unique jumbo hotel suite. The classic airplane, nestled on the edge of the National Park in the Costa Verde II area, is perched on a 50-foot pedestal. At this height, you will enjoy scenic ocean and jungle views from the hard wood deck built atop the plane’s former right wing.

Furnishings are hand-carved, teak furniture from Java, Indonesia. The 727 home features two air conditioned bedrooms–one with two queen sized beds and the other with one queen sized bed, each with its own private bath — a flat screen TV, a kitchenette with microwave, dining area foyer; an ocean view terrace; a private entrance up a river rock, spiral staircase, and 360 degrees of surrounding gardens.

Enjoy an evening on the terrace while sipping a glass of wine and observing your tree top neighbors: sloths, toucans, monkeys and more.

This refurbished Boeing 727 home is not the only such dwelling in the world: the inspiration was a Forbes Magazine article about a company offering hurricane-proof living via surplus Boeing 727 airframes!
