Solar Floating Resort: Eco Luxury in the Center Of the Ocean!
Imagine floating in the middle of the ocean, with the sea life swimming along beside you and nothing but open sky…and solar panels overhead. The new Solar Floating Resort is a futuristic and luxurious concept design by Italian industrial designer Michele Puzzolante.
The sun-powered floating resort is a hybrid model, giving guests the comforts of a yacht with the visual and exploratory benefits of a submarine. The condo-like layout includes a central tower, a deck and “habitation” section with 20 modules that can accommodate up to six people.
Spanning 20m long, the space will also include a kitchen, lounge, and features underwater observation capsules that provide a thick glass enclosure and can travel around the ocean so guests can see fish and dolphins.
It is a self-sufficient energy generator and includes photovoltaic panels that cover the sleek boat like a skin and are reinforced with fibre-glass. It uses a dye that absorbs light and turns it into electricity for those on board.
Although no number has been announced, the estimated price of this luxury floating resort is a cool $150 million. No big deal.
