Adding luxury to comfort, a floating hotel designed by Finland-based Sigge Architects is the latest avant-garde construction plan for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™.
Ideal to accommodate football fans from all over the world, the exclusive five-star facility is expected to include top-notch restaurants, a lavish spa, a nightclub and a rooftop pool.
Besides, the hotel can be moved to another coastal location after the World Cup 2022 to cater to the requirements of other events. The ultra-modern facility will not depend on location infrastructure, as it will have independent sewage treatment, power generation and recycling capabilities, making it a true architectural achievement.
Admares Floating Real Estate, a partner in the project, reveals: “The floating hotel provides all of the same services and amenities that are available in hotels constructed on land, while simultaneously offering the additional experience of floating on water and all-around access to exceptional views. A floating hotel is a viable option for areas where land is scarce, fully developed or challenging to develop.”
It also adds: “The exterior architecture is fully customisable to suit the location’s surroundings. In addition, a parking garage can also be built into the hotel complex, which guarantees parking spots to guests even in fully developed city areas.”
Moreover, the floating hotel will be tailored to meet the exact needs of an operator, in terms of the number of rooms, types of restaurants, number and location of pools, placement of balconies and terraces, which can all be altered to suit the purpose.
The construction timeline of the project has not been revealed yet, but the floating hotel promises to be a main attraction for VIPs and jet-setters.
