After Pandora, floating islands have become quite a rage. It’s not the time for Italian industrial designer Michele Puzzolante to create a conceptual floating luxury hotel suite. He says that it is “entirely self-powering thanks to the dye-sensitized solar cells” that are fitted into the vessel’s walls. This “Solar Floating Resort” can house six resident passengers who can keep an eye on marine wildlife courtesy of an underwater “observation bulb.”
Measuring 20-m in length, the SFR features two double and two single bedrooms with private bathrooms. The resort also sports a kitchen, dining room, lounge area, and bridge. The obligatory hot tub can be seen at the outer teak deck. The observation bulb built into the hull will offer 60-degree views of the ocean. At this time, though, technical details are sparse. However, this is one resort I don’t mind taking a weekend break in!
