Amazing Beautiful and Unique Sand Sculpture Arts Festival in 2009Lâu đài (trên) cát- World’s First Sand Hotel: They have the sun, the sand, and the sea, but you can’t get much more of the beach where they’ve also got the world’s largest and only sand castle hotel made entirely of sand on Weymouth beach in Dorset, UK.

What you won’t find there is a closet or any shower or toilet facilities, so you’re going to have to sleep with your legs crossed.

It took a team of 6 and a digger eight days, laboring 12 to 14 hours a day — 600 hours altogether — to build the 50 foot (15 meter) square by 13 foot (4 meter) high sand hotel using 1,000 tons of sand and water from the sea — and a lot of hard work.

The open air family room with a sea-side view has a double and single bed made of sand which will set you back a mere $21 (£10) a night to sleep under the starry skies. You can wake up to the ocean when the “tide laps through the door.”

One word of warning, the sand does get everywhere, but it is a bit of an adventure since it has no roof.

“The beds are made of sand so it can get everywhere, especially between the toes.” said Anderson.

The hotel was the brainchild of sculptor Mark Anderson who was commissioned by the website LateRooms.com, designed to look like a giant sand castle.

It’s made from Weymouth beach sand, the finest in the world for making sand castles, says Anderson.

“I have been on about 200 beaches and have only found one in Tasmania with sand as fine for making sculptures as Weymouth.” he said.

The sand hotel was orchestrated as a publicity stunt by the hotel company, and the biggest sand structure ever built in the UK, designed for the renaissance of beach holidays after its research found that 57% of the country’s holiday-makers were shunning foreign destinations in favor of British seaside resorts.
