There’s a new hotel concept that’s truly redefining the eco-luxury industry. This hotel is known as the ‘DROP eco-hotel’, and it is a portable hotel room that can easily be placed virtually anywhere in the world. According to Forbes Life contributor, Jim Dobson, this modular hotel room will soon become one of the most unique travel experiences ever. The idea behind the hotel room is to offer travelers the option to take their hotel suite to just about any spot in the world, and then easily remove it without causing ecological harm to the surrounding environment.
The suite’s structure is made out of prefabricated wooden and steel elements. The architecture can be custom designed and installed with minimum impact on the environment. To adapt to irregular terrains and reduce the amount of contact with the undeveloped land, the structure’s base is elevated from the ground on adjustable steel legs.
The suite also features dramatic, large bubble windows at each end of the suite, seemingly bringing guests in direct contact with nature. The windows virtually remove the barrier between indoors and outdoors by providing natural ventilation. Another cool feature is that the suite includes a skylight that runs the entire length of the pod, providing plenty of natural light during the day and amazing views of the stars at night.
Each green hotel suite comfortably accommodates two adults. Although the suite has a small size of 275 square feet, it contains enough space for a lounge area and a bedroom, as well as a separate bathroom with toilet, shower and bath. There is even a wood terrace that offers outdoor seating.
A couple of the pod’s green features include thin, photovoltaic solar films on the roof for power generation, and a rainwater collection system to harvest water for use in the bathroom, each further reducing the suite’s environmental impact. The Drop eco-hotel aims to meet the growing demand for eco-tourism around the world. The combination of this suite’s futuristic concept, and the convenience and flexibility of private jet charter will make the possibilities of seeing every corner of the world possibly endless.
