Are you dreaming of a tropical getaway? This has been a crazy year, and we feel that we could all use a break to a different type of reality. Not a reality where there is danger and there are restrictions in place, but a reality of the relaxing, beautiful, luxurious kind.

When you think of a luxurious tropical getaway you might picture a private villa on a private island or at least a private beach. You might picture sailing on the turquoise water in your own private boat, but maybe you wish there were a way to combine the two.

In Tahiti, a luxurious villa is currently being built. The unique part is that this villa also floats making it quite the fancy houseboat. Construction should be done by the end of the year. 

This is not going to be a small houseboat. At 51-feet long, it will include four bedrooms that can sleep a total of 8 people. It will also have a rooftop deck to give guests a 360 degree view.

Don’t know how to sail a houseboat? No problem. The floating villa comes with its own captain who will sail guests onboard around the turquoise water of Bora Bora.

Since this luxurious getaway is on the water, it is also equipped with the necessary equipment so that guests can fully enjoy their surroundings. For fun in the water, the houseboat comes with inflatable paddleboards, kayaks, and snorkeling gear. 

Prefer to spend your days onboard soaking in the view instead of exploring the water below? You’re covered there too. All guests have access to concierge service plus the option of adding a personal chef and crew.

This floating villa also comes equipped with a grill, a full kitchen, a living and dining area and a flat screen TV.

Worried about the environmental impact of this boat? Don’t be. It’s eco friendly. The luxury boat does not have a diesel engine, which means that it’s quiet and there’s no pollution or smell. Instead it is powered by lithium batteries and solar panels.

This luxury floating villa can be enjoyed while docked, but it will eventually take to the sea. On December 1, 2020, guests will be able to start making reservations for the boat. The price tag is $1770 per night, and there is a minimum 3-night stay. That’s not cheap, but it might be worth it for a unique, luxury getaway, especially when you consider that the price includes transportation to the airport.
