Sunborn London sails into the capital

The Sunborn London has sailed up the River Thames, in preparation to take its place as the city's first luxury super yacht hotel.

The Sunborn London is to be operated by ISS Facility Services, which has partnered with the East London Business Alliance to recruit more than 50% of its staff for the hotel.

The 120m long hotel incorporates conference rooms, a fine-dining restaurant, bar, auditorium, outside decks and private terraces, over five floors. It is expected to primarily attract corporate clients and will increase accommodation around ExCeL to 1,700 rooms.

Karen Thomson, director of ISS Facility Services, said: "At ISS we see this as a very exciting opportunity. We've worked extensively with our partners to create a totally unique experience, whilst driving positive change in the area."

Hans Niemi, executive director of Sunborn, added: "The new hotel in London, currently the world's most important city, gives us an important platform for the Sunborn brand and business concept."

Sunborn London becomes the second yacht hotel launched by the company, joining the first one in Gibraltar. The company intends to expand the concept worldwide.
