[dropcap]L[/dropcap]ONDON – A designer has come up with a concept for a futuristic floating hotel that brings new meaning to life on the high seas.
Called the MORP Hotel, it’s the brainchild of Gianluca Santosuosso, who envisioned a hotel with the ability to adapt and move with the ocean currents.
The “floatel” ecosystem is developed with a nonlinear, spinal structure about a half a mile in length composed of individually connected capsules that house rooms, restaurants and other luxury facilities, such as a pool. The floating hotel also features a helipad so passengers can fly aboard regardless of where it is in the world.
Guests would get an ever-changing view from their rooms because the craft will be constantly moving across the ocean but at a rate slower than an average boat.
