You Can Now Stay in a Floating Glass-Bottomed Eco-Hotel

In a world where humans are constantly looking for something new, exciting, and eco-friendly, we have since been introduced to sustainable accommodation options – and they’re pretty awesome. We’ve seen treehouses, we’ve seen Hobbit houses, and we’ve even seen beachside properties. However, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a floating glass-bottomed eco-hotel before. Until now, of course.

Inspired By 007

Eco-hotels are not unusual in today’s day and age, but it seems as though the design and the layout of these hotels are becoming more unusual as each month goes by. This is certainly the case for the Anthénea eco-hotel that can be found off the coast of Brittany, France. This new development is futuristic and alien in its design, but the inspiration for this new way of sleeping actually came from a story that’s been in our lives for many years. Ther glass-bottomed hotel was inspired by the 1977 James Bond movie, The Spy Who Loved Me.

Luxurious Eco-Friendly Living

What’s so great about this pod – apart from the fact that you’re quite literally sleeping on the water – is the fact that it has been designed with the environment in mind. While the accommodation itself is all about luxury, this luxury is made possible by the solar panels on the roof. In fact, this pod is designed to follow the sun so that it’s constantly utilizing the solar energy, and this heats the shower, cooks the food, and even allows the guests to drive the boat to wherever they want.

Everything You Need

Although this small pod may seem inadequate for a vacation, it really does have everything you need. The 540-square-foot pod has enough space for 12 guests and includes a beautiful sun deck, a stunning master bedroom, sea-water tubs, and even a kitchen with panoramic views. What could be better than that?

Well, we know which hotel we’ll be booking this year.
