Space resorts and hotels in space

Galactic Suite SpaceresortTaking a look at what Galactic Suite Group are planning gives us a glimpse into the future for space tourism, they plan the Galactic Suite Spaceresort – the first space hotel housed within a mini space station orbiting in low earth orbit and dedicated to accommodating private passengers. Guests would experience weightlessness and amazing views into space, with 16 sunrises and sunsets a day on offer. It's envisaged that space tourists would stay in the space hotel for short periods of 4 to 6 days.
