Located in Krausnick, Germany, this tropical island retreat is completely artificially constructed and contained in an unusual place. The hotel opened in 2004, offering a beach, lagoon, water slide, restaurants and exotic birds, flora and fauna. It basically has everything you could want from an island resort. Except it’s nowhere near an island. Because this warm, beautiful beach surrounded by snow.
It’s built inside a long-distance cargo hangar on a former Soviet airbase. It’s 360 meters long (1181 feet). 210 meters wide (689 feet). And 107 meters tall (351 feet), which is tall enough to enclose the Statue of Liberty.
