Concept of Solar Floating Moveable Resort!

If you’ve wanted to take a vacation somewhere warm and sunny, but the guilt over the potential carbon footprint has been too much, then this concept solar-powered floating resort might be for you.

Italian industrial designer Michele Puzzolante has come up with a conceptual floating luxury hotel suite he claims could be entirely self-powering thanks to the dye-sensitized solar cells which would be integrated into the vessel’s walls. Puzzolante suggests his “Solar Floating Resort” could be navigated along exotic coast lines, while its six resident passengers observe marine wildlife thanks to its underwater “observation bulb.”

If you needed a change of scenery, you could move your resort somewhere else by driving it like a regular boat. This is a seriously nice design, with no expense spared. This thing sleeps six, with two double and two single bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. If this thing does actually get built, it would be great for eco-tourism.
