The Spontaneity Suite -- a luxurious pop-up hotel moored on Sydney’s picturesque harbour on Thursday -- becoming Australia’s first travelling hotel and offering people the chance to stay overnight in the lavish suite priced at $36,000.

The concept, brought to life by hotel booking app, HotelTonight is made of two 20 feet (6.1m) shipping containers complete with a rooftop jacuzzi and aims to capture the attention of travellers seeking an experience like no other.

The exclusive suite is available for two nights only when it drops in price from $36,000 per night to $99 between 12 and 2pm on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November.

Patrons will be transported by boat to the secret location where the suite is docked and treated to a night soaking up one of the world’s most coveted views with all-inclusive room service delivered naturally, by a waiter transported on boat.

Stefan Cordiner, HotelTonight regional director for Asia Pacific said the brand is on a mission to offer an experience second to none.

“Anybody can book a penthouse in the Four Seasons with the right price, but we’re interested in helping Australians experience something unique and fulfil a different type of wanderlust,” Cordiner told The Huffington Post Australia.

The suite made its debut in Victoria’s Yarra Valley in August and is fully serviced by Ovolo Hotels, the group behind Sydney’s 1888 Hotel and Melbourne’s Laneways Hotel.

Cordiner said the brand aims to inspire travel-loving Australians to explore their own backyard in search of adventure.

Of course, since the concept operates solely off HotelTonight’s app (the suite boasts smart in-room entertainment including Apple TV and Netflix controlled through your phone) it makes sense the key to your room is sent via email.

Additionally, it is serviced by Aces, a new in-app chat feature which acts as your own personal concierge offering insider tips on local eats, night spots and hotel requests -- just in case you happened to get tired of the aforementioned rooftop jacuzzi.
