Eco Floating Hotel

The building was conceptualized as a giant glass annular with a vortex roof. The rainwater is collected and used to irrigate greenery surrounding the hotel’s exterior, generate tidal energy with seawater powering areas of the facility. The architectural hotel will also be powered by solar and wind power.

The hotel will boast a 700 square meter lobby in its centre, transparent vertical surfaces allow guests to experience changes in atmosphere and views.

The hotel will include a gym, spa, sauna, indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Rooms will all have private balconies so guests can take advantage of the constantly changing views. The hotel can be accessed by the pier that connects to the mainland or, if they prefer, a private boat or helicopter.

Each hotel revolution takes a full 24 hours to complete, so there is no chance of guests becoming dizzy. The hotel uses a dynamic positioning system built with a series of propellers and thrusters to achieve the movement.

Construction is expected to be completed by 2025.
