The luxury floating island resort that could be the future of tourism - but it comes with a £145MILLION price tag


By Sarah Gordon

|

 

This incredible floating holiday island could be the tourist hotspot of the future.

Entirely powered by solar energy, this exclusive 'resort' has all the luxuries required for the perfect holiday, from pools and rooms with an underwater view of exotic marine life to a marina and heliport.

The futuristic design is so mind-blowing the Maldives is even in talks with creator Michele Puzzolante, from MPD Designs, about making the island a reality - despite a hefty price tag of £145million.

Scroll down to take a video tour of the island...

Set on a floating pontoon, the holiday pods will include two luxurious bedrooms, a sun terrace, plunge pool with a view and a show-stopping underwater room looking out over coral and colourful fish swimming in the Indian Ocean.

There is even a steering wheel and motor in case guests fancy changing their setting.

The island nation of the Maldives - where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently holidaying - will be hardest hit area if climate change continues, as its picture-perfect atolls are just 6m above sea level.

The floating solar islands have been touted as a way for the Maldives to continue developing it tourism industry in the face of rising sea levels.

Both hotels and larger resorts can be developed, linking a variety of pods together to form a huge floating area for tourists.

 
 

Puzzolante's designs include bars and restaurants, a spa, mini airports and heliports for guest access and even an underwater bar and nightclub.

All at sea: If climate change causes sea levels to rise, the Maldives could lose its atolls, but these floating islands would rise and fall with the sea

The resorts could be entirely powered by solar energy, with panels hidden inside the fibreglass exterior of the pods and converting sunlight into energy.

The various parts of the resorts could also be created in a factory and delivered in pieces so they can be built on site in an Ikea style.

Puzzolante believes the Solar Floating Islands could be an addition to beachfront hotels around the world, taking them from a five-star offering to an exclusive seven-star experience. Luxurious suites and villas could also be added to any complex to make it more desirable.

If you’re looking to power more than one device, consider adding a battery backup. This will allow you to use your solar panel during the day and then transfer stored energy back into the grid when it is dark and you have to find best hybrid inverters in Pakistan to get more output easily. Some batteries can even provide enough power to run small appliances like fans or televisions.
