Perhaps your curiosity for new holiday experiences has led you to research what a flotel is, did we succeed?
Surely you have realised that the word flotel comes from the combination of two concepts: floating and hotel. Therefore, we are talking about a floating hotel.
A very innovative holiday concept that is sure to resonate with you if you are looking for new experiences that combine relaxation and contact with nature in unique and exclusive locations, far from the crowds.
Well, stick around, because we're going to show you the keys to making your stay on a float a (quasi-religious) experience.

Stay on a flotel, a new concept in hospitality
In recent times, when travellers like you want to get away from mass tourism, new hotel proposals are emerging, designed to offer you the chance to spend a few days in harmony with nature and take care of your emotional wellbeing.
The floating hotel was born as a response to this new trend of more relaxed fun, without renouncing the comfort of the most complete luxury hotels. And these are the keys:
A meeting point with nature
Most of the floats are usually located on lakes, waterways or marinas. So you are guaranteed contact with nature.
The benefits of living near the sea on your physical well-being and its positive contribution to your emotional state are becoming increasingly well known.
If, in itself, contact with nature means slowing down the pace of everyday life, imagine the experience of living and sleeping on water.
The gentle rocking of the gentle currents and the soothing murmur will transport you to a state of relaxation that few other experiences can provide, rest assured.
Experience your senses
Do you feel that your daily routine keeps you in a continuous mental mumble that makes it difficult for you to enjoy the present moment?
Well, we have good news for you: the unique location of the floats in places where no other kind of construction is possible, allows for experiences that keep you in the here and now.
Enjoying a landscape with all 5 senses, contemplating an unrepeatable sunset or chatting with friends while the sea gently rocks you are unique moments that you can experience in a floating hotel.
Fun activities in the water (and on land)
You should know that combining relaxation with fun is not a contradiction in terms.
And a floating hotel gives you many opportunities to do so.
The contact with the sea allows you to enjoy activities such as kayaking, paddle surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling and fishing, among others.
On the other hand, with a simple hop ashore, you can enjoy a bike ride, the rich gastronomy of the coastal areas and also the proximity to the city centre, particularly in the case of marinas.
Boat Haus, the first houseboat hotel in Spain
At Boat Haus Mediterranean we want you to enjoy this unique experience and that is why we launched the first houseboat hotel in Spain a few years ago. For us, designing a houseboat experience had to take into account all the aspects we have seen (and much more).
Our first challenge was therefore to choose a location for our flotel concept. We set to work to find a unique location, with a good climate all year round and in harmony with nature.
And we found it!
In Andalusia, in the south of Spain, we came across this particular paradise we were looking for. Right in the harbour of the Alcaidesa Marina, in La Línea de la Concepción, in front of a unique view of the Rock of Gibraltar.
A charming village of colourful houseboats that will stimulate your senses. Where contact with the water and the gentle murmur of the waves will offer you what we call an authentic Mediterranean Experience that you can share with your partner, family or friends in a comfortable and peaceful environment.
A place that will be the ideal base camp for any plan that you propose, because you have at hand the city centre, Gibraltar and all the varied offer that the province of Cadiz has for the traveller: beaches, mountains, white or seafaring villages... In short, a lot of relaxing plans in Cadiz.
Boat Haus houseboats: Experience a unique experience on the water!
Needless to say, to make your stay complete, our floating hotel is equipped with all the luxurious details: fully equipped kitchen, private bathroom, wifi, air conditioning, television and a private car park at your disposal so that you don't waste a minute of your rest time.
Fancy a breath of fresh air? Then head up to the private terrace of your houseboat to sunbathe or enjoy the views at sunset. A highlight will be relaxing in the evening with your loved ones in front of the illuminated Rock.
By the way, we are pet friendly! We love animals and your pet has a place in our floating homes.
If you would like to spend a few days in a relaxed atmosphere, in a beautiful float and with everything within reach, you just have to find the option of our float that fits your preferences like a glove.
We have 17 houseboats of different sizes and comfort, with options for 2, 4 or 6 people. And all with 360º private terraces, of course.

What do you think of our proposal? We hope we have helped you to discover what a flotel is, and we hope you will join all those people who have already lived the Mediterranean Experience that we have designed with so much love.
