You may have heard about those temporary ice hotels that Sweden, Norway and some of those near-Arctic-circle countries put up during the winter and lasts through a season until the ice melts. Now the Netherland-based Zand Hotel is doing the same, but with sand.

Two sand hotels have popped up, one each at the cities of Oss and Sneek, in the Netherlands, and both have been fully booked for weeks. The fully furnished one-room-hotels were built to coincide with the annual Brabant and Friesland sand sculpture festivals, which lure holidaymakers and some of the world’s best artists. The rooms have windows, beds, electricity, running water and Wi-Fi.
