How did this crazy project begin?

Until 2014, the Mandala Airlines Boeing 737 flew over the skies of Indonesia carrying dozens of passengers on board. Today, it offers an unforgettable holiday in the heart of Bali. But it wouldn't be possible without the help of an entrepreneur with an overflowing imagination: Felix Demin. It was he who came up with the crazy idea of rehabilitating an old plane.

Now completely transformed, this very special hotel owes its popularity to its original architecture. And the work involved was monumental: after buying back the plane that was about to be sold in pieces, the parts had to be transported for 5 days to the cliff where it now rests. The work then took several years, but it was well worth the wait.

A quality holiday in the heart of Bali

With its infinity pool, terraces with breathtaking ocean views and tastefully appointed rooms, it's fair to say that the décor is unforgettable. In fact, the hotel has a suite with bedroom, bathroom and even a kitchen and lounge with a view of the outside. And beyond the very modern design, totally in keeping with the look and style of the aircraft, the rooms are also very functional.

Everything has been designed to be practical. The windows in the cockpit where the bedroom is located open completely, there are removable blinds and even a freestanding bathtub, offering unrivalled comfort to the hotel's occupants. There's even a fireplace to enjoy the summer nights by a cosy fire. Between the beauty of the location and that of its exterior, there's no doubt that this is one of Bali's best spots for taking your best selfies.

A truly immersive experience

And the experience goes far beyond a simple luxury hotel. In fact, it's a real immersion in the world of luxury and aviation that this rather unusual venue offers. You are first greeted with a boarding pass to make the experience even more realistic, and then shown around the premises. The lucky ones who try out this hotel will have access to a landing zone for their helicopter and a very complete service that even includes the presence of a private chef capable of preparing every dish from champagne to caviar!

But this experience comes at a price. From 1,600 euros per night, you can enjoy all the privileges of this unrivalled location.
