Inland waters are perfect examples of untouchable, serenely beautiful nature. However, many times these places are not appreciated to their complete value and even neglected from a touristic point of view. In order to boost tourism in these beautiful areas, Salt & Water, the Architecture and Yacht Design company created an amazing floating hotel. Their project would allow visitors to bask in the beauty of nature, without harming the place itself.
The floating hotel is made of two parts. The central floating construction is the main part. The construction contains a reception, restaurant, event hall, staff offices and a café. The apartment catamaran units are the second part. Pathways connect the catamaran apartments to the central unit, allowing people to travel with ease from one place to another. What’s more, each apartment can be separated from the dock. Tourists can navigate the waters themselves and choose the perfect place for their vacation.
Each catamaran features a salon, a galley, a bathroom, a hall, storage space and the sleeping area which is placed above the salon. Each apartment is able to house 2 to 4 people. For relaxation, guests can choose between the flying bridge and the beach platform. Swimming, diving, fishing and sun bathing can all be done from the beach platform.
The idea behind the floating hotel is allowing guests to enjoy their visit by navigation their catamarans at a leisure speed and also to help them get in contact with the nature surrounding them. The large windows of each catamaran make it easier to take in all images of the surrounding nature. “Catamarans-apartments can be considered as “frames of the nature” – connecting the guests with the water and the sky and isolating them from the everyday’s stress,” wrote the company on their website.
