Hotel design – Designer Chuck Anderson has created the Lilypad boutique hotel, the perfect romantic overnight getaway for two or event venue for small groups on the water. The floating villa combines innovative design with traditional craftsmanship and modern luxuries, respecting the pristine environment where it exists.

Indeed, the house boat runs completely off solar power. “We have built a space that is for true relaxation and enjoyment of the natural beauty,” said Anderson who confesses that “the design and construction of Lilypad was a feat in engineering to ensure guests could experience luxury accommodation on an entirely stable surface, whilst drifting with the rhythmic sounds and movements of the ocean.”

Growing up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and spending much of my life around boats, I always had a vision to create something truly special that people can now enjoy as their own, a design space and service that would eliminate the pitfalls of the traditional boating experience whilst amplifying the rest,” Chuck added.

During the COVID-19 era the boutique hotel is only accepting bookings for Sydney locals or those who can’t leave the city at this time. “We are limiting our bookings to those that are in search for a more isolated arrangement than their current living situation.We have adjusted our structures and processes to ensure that they meet the regulations and guidelines of the World Health Organisation and both Australian and NSW governments.”
