This floating eco-hotel concept in Qatar generates its own electricity

As more hospitality groups are ramping up efforts to be environmentally-friendly, a floating eco-hotel concept in Qatar has taken this one step further by generating its own electricity.

It has a cool design and floats out at sea. It also spins because that allows it to generate its own electricity. You could say the property is both a luxury abode and a hydro generator.

Designed by Turkish design firm Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio (HAADS), the Floating Eco-Hotel in Qatar adopts the principle of “minimum energy loss and zero waste.” According to details shared by HAADS, the structure generates electrical energy by rotating its position according to the water.

In essence, it borrows the idea of a dynamo. Using a network of thrusters and propellers, which are controlled by a Dynamic Positioning (DP) system, it rotates the structure, converting energy into electricity.

However, despite the fact it spins, it will not cause any discomfort to guests. The property takes approximately 24 hours to complete a full circle.

Despite its green credentials, the Floating Eco-Hotel will not be short on luxurious amenities and facilities. As it is conceived as a five-star hotel, it will boast indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa and a gym. Other recreational facilities include a rooftop bar, beach club and a mini-golf course.

Spreading across 35,000 square metres, the property will offer 152 suites with private balconies along with varying views. A giant glass atrium is situated at the very centre of the hotel.  The property can be accessed by three access points at any time of day. Guests can use the 140-degree floating pier connected to the mainland or get there by boat or helicopter.

Although merely at the design stage now, HAADS is confident the property will be completed by 2025.
