The new guesthouse built on its own lake, with six to choose from.
Guests will be able to overlook the water and Devonshire countryside from their private deck.
Even in bad weather, you can still enjoy the view with the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake.
Inside the lodges are kitchens and living areas, with flat-screen TVs and dining spaces.
The room accommodates up to four people, with a double bed and sofa bed, meaning both couples and families can stay there.
You can also bring pets as dogs are allowed free of charge.
Water activities including windsurfing and kayaking will be available from the summer, with a new infinity pool and spa opening in July.
If you prefer to eat out, there is also The Apple & Grape restaurant and bar on site, with bistro meals made with local ingredients and beer.
The lodges are also a short drive from Dartmoor National Park and Cornwall’s north coast.
Stephen Twiss . Seaside Entertainment Group boss tell Devon Live: “Our brand new floating lodges allow guests to experience the best of both worlds, with the tranquility of a boat on the water and the luxury of a motel traditional.
“Our aim with these lodges is to provide guests with stunning vistas that they will never get tired of, making them the ideal romantic getaway where couples can spend time gazing through the giant windows or sitting on their private deck right on the lake.
“Luxury is at the heart of these lodges and their proximity to the lake makes them a great location for a peaceful and relaxing stay.”
They’re currently 10% off their New Year sale, which means a two-night stay for a family of four will set you back £630, or less than £80 per person per night.
If you still want a Maldivian-style vacation without spending a fortune, you can stay at a resort in Greece with the only water villa in Europe.
