Eco-friendly Floating Luxury Hotels in Qatar producing its own electricity. New Sensation will be operating from 2025!
Floating hotels have been popping up all over the world in recent years, with destinations like Dubai and Qatar leading the way with increasingly innovative and outlandish structures. But this new concept Designed by Studio (HAADS) may just blow all the others out of the water in terms of eco-consciousness. This concept not like any other. It will slowly be rotating around itself and produce its own electricity! This Luxury hotel design will have 152 rooms with the same auto-generation of its own electricity but also collects and reuses rainwater and food waste. WOW. What can we say accept from WOW? If built, the floating structure will work in a similar way to a dynamo, utilizing the water current with wind turbines and tidal power as it rotates, converting the energy into electricity. Its movement is to be controlled by dynamic positioning, a computer-controlled system used to maintain the position and direction of ships, as well as propellers and thrusters. No guests are unlikely to experience any dizziness, as it takes 24 hours for the hotel to spin a full 360 degrees. While the hotel will initially be based in Qatar, the location is not confirmed yet, if or when it's completed, the project can also be located anywhere with the right current due to its "movable feature," according to the designers. Covering over 35,000 square meters, the structure can be accessed via a 140-degree floating pier connected to the mainland, helicopter or boat. Those who stay here can expect the same level of luxury associated with five-star floating hotels. The amenities available are to include both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa, a gym and a mini golf course. Its striking vortex-shaped roof has been designed to collect rainwater that will be reused for various purposes, including irrigation. The hotel also aims to treat any used water it produces so that it "will not harm the environment" as well as develop waste separation units "for the recycling of substances such as food waste." If it makes its deadline, the concept will be hot on the heels of a separate Qatar project that will see 16 luxury floating hotels built specifically for the 2022 World Cup, which the country is hosting. Meanwhile, Dubai's $164 million the Sea Palace Floating Resort is currently being built by Emirati ship-building company Seagate Shipyard and Sweden's Arctic Bath, a floating hotel and spa designed by architects Bertil Harström and Johan Kauppi, opened its doors in early 2020.
