Private Jet Villa by Hanging Gardens

A Boeing 737 is Being Converted into a Luxury ‘Private Jet’ Villa in Bali

While most holidayers are eager to get off their flight as fast as possible, we may have just found one aeroplane you won’t want to leave. A former Boeing 737, dubbed the Hanging Gardens Private Jet Villa, is being converted into a luxurious retreat on the cliffs of Bali, Indonesia. A one-of-a-kind experience, it looks to offer all the indulgence of a private jet without the hassle of check-ins, security or heart-racing turbulence.

Overlooking Nyang Nyang beach, the villa is a stunning sight to behold.  The former cockpit has been transformed into a luxurious primary bathroom, and the wings of the plane have been turned into floating terraces. Everywhere you look, you’ll find unique design elements that will make thirsty content creators and influencers wet with joy.

The villa features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a living room, and a private infinity pool overlooking the Indian ocean. If that’s not enough, the villa also boasts a helipad, for those who don’t like to travel without their chopper. Amenities such as fresh linens, toiletries, and a daily housekeeping service make the villa feel like a first-class experience, without the claustrophobia associated with flying in a tube in the sky.

According to Business Insider, entrepreneur Felix Demin purchased the retired aircraft from the now-defunct Mandala Airlines. Envisioning a new life for the plane,  he then transported it to the top of the beachside cliff in 2021. “Externally and structurally, this is a jet aircraft that we have turned into a luxury hotel,” Demin told the publication.

The property is set to open in March 2023 and can be booked on Expedia for a whopping USD$7,300 a night. Talk about a high-flying vacation. But for those who get the jitters on planes, this experience might not be for you. However, with all the luxurious amenities, it will be easy to forget that you’re actually on an aeroplane, especially with the former cockpit now being a fancy circular tub.
