The Zand Hotel…Made Entirely Of Sand…

What? A hotel made entirely of sand? The Zand Hotel in the Netherlands is just that. Constructed by event organizers for Global PowWow, this 60 room hotel was constructed in just four weeks. Each room features different sculptures and themes to give all of the rooms a unique feel. On the exterior, the hotel looks exactly like a giant sand castle. Worried about how these rooms stay up? The hotel’s basic structure is made of thin walls, covered inside and out with reinforced sand to ensure it doesn’t crumble. The shower, bathroom fittings and deluxe box spring bed are made out of traditional materials. Thank goodness! We know how hard it is to get sand out from between your toes after a day at the beach. – The Zand Hotel
