If you’re wanting to rekindle your sense of adventure without having to travel out too far, this pop up accommodation may be the answer you’re looking for.

This hotel can be found on Cockatoo Island in Sydney but there’s a catch: it’s made out of shipping containers.

Travelling to Sydney from Perth, the Contained concept was created by duo, Anatoly Mezhov and Irene Polo, who want to provide people with luxurious boutique accommodation. 

‘It’s an opportunity for people to escape and experience great food, innovative farming and bespoke converted container structures, unwind and explore the Island’s incredible cultural and historical features,’ Anatoly said.

Just because the two rooms are made out of shipping containers doesn’t mean you’ll be slumming it.

The two bespoke suites are equipped with all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury hotel. 

They welcome guests equipped with air conditioning, Nespresso machines, Netflix-enabled tablets and a plunge pool.

To top it all off, both of the containers are facing Sydney Harbour, meaning you are perfectly located to watch the sunrise or sunset.

The main rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows which makes perfect use of the island’s vantage point and also means you don’t have to leave the privacy of your room to take in the breathtaking view. 

The rooms are also finished with wooden herringbone floors and white subway-tile bathrooms.

The innovation doesn’t stop there with hearty Latin street eats from the newly installed Don Tapa restaurant also being available on the island.

The menu takes traditional into new territory, with simple options such as charred corn with Brazil nut butter or mushroom and mole tamales with lime.

If you would rather stay in, you also have the option to order room service, which can help to make the whole experience feel even more luxurious. 

Drinks from Young Henry’s and The Sydney Urban Winery Bar are also available on the island for the duration of the pop-up.

Contained has been designed to be all you need for a weekend with your loved ones or a trip with your girlfriends. 

Of course this kind of luxury doesn’t come cheap, with weeknights costing $305 a night and Friday to Sunday setting you back $385 per night, with a minimum two night stay required.

To access the island people will need to catch a public ferry and Harbour City Ferries run regular services to Cockatoo Island every day of the week.

Ferries depart from Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Barangaroo as well as from wharves along the F3 Parramatta River ferry route.

If you’re interested in experiencing the rooms for yourself you better get in quick, as the pop-up won’t be around forever.
