(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Ever dream of sleeping next to a walrus? A resort in Belgium let's you do just that!

Pairi Daiza Resort at the Pairi Daiza Zoo in Brugelette, Belgium offer animal lovers unique accommodations. The resort has over 100 rooms with personal views into the zoo’s animal habitats, including a room that looks right into a walrus tank.

The Walrus House is a double room offering guests the added benefit of being able to get up-close-and-personal with the walruses at The Land of the Cold habitat at the zoo. The resort said The Walrus House will "fulfill the dream of sleeping in a snow cave – while staying warm and snug." Guests can view the zoo's walruses as they swim past a glass wall that separates the tank and the room.

A walrus is not your typical roommate, but this is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

In addition to The Walrus House, Pairi Daiza Resort has over 100 rooms located within 10 different lodges with views of other animals in the zoo as well, including penguins, bears, tigers, wolves, sea lions, and fallow deer. The type of animal you will be able to see varies based on which lodge you choose.

According to Pairi Daiza Resort, all guests receive access to the park, from the day of arrival to the day of departure, including all "worlds" within the resort, luggage handling, free reserved parking, free WiFi, board games, complimentary breakfast and dinner, free non-alcoholic drinks, a welcome tray with tea and coffee, and a welcome gift.

Packages for an exclusive stay between the animals in half board start at €129 (about $150 USD) per person, per night.

According to Travel + Leisure, the resort was originally planned to open in March, but officially opened its doors on June 8 due to the coronavirus pandemic. For more information, visit the Pairi Daiza Resort website.
