People have always been impressed with luxury resorts and hotels, and government institutions or private contractors have understood this and created buildings and impressive resorts to meet the needs of their desired customers. The countries of the Middle East have understood this very well and have invested heavily in tourism in order to boost the economies of the countries and, implicitly, the standard of living.
Now the complicated situation arises when someone actually has to pay for these incredible architectural masterpieces. Fortunately, huge amounts of money have flowed across Asia over the past decade or two, and the money available is used by smart people to invest. Because of this, you will most likely see a futuristic resort project in Asia and less likely in Europe or the US.
In this article, I’ve selected five luxury resorts with futuristic architecture that I hope will sometimes be built in their lifetime. Of course, don’t get your hopes up. While these look incredibly impressive, they are really difficult to build and involve a lot of engineering problems and research to actually make the final project happen. From all of this, I understood that only the Waterworld project has the best chance of being built.
Amphibious 1000 in Qatar
This innovative project is the first semi-submerged hotel resort called Amphibious, like a large aquatic animal that extends from land to sea and extends horizontally for 1 km thanks to two long, wide arms. The project consists of a land section and a sea section. On the property you will find residential and office buildings as well as a marina with a modern and flexible port. All structures are in a semicircle around the tower with the panorama restaurant.
The hotels are located near a central public reception area with an interactive aquatic life museum and aquatic exhibition galleries, large perimetric aquariums and a glass tunnel leading to the underwater observatory at the center of the entire marine park. Fitness areas, gardens and a special open-air theater with a moving stage that opens out to the sea are connected to the welcome area by long arms.
On the smaller floating platforms, 80 floating suites called jellyfish will be anchored with a view underwater within the artificial reef. There are lighthouses at the end of each platform. Thanks to electric vehicles that respect the ecosystem philosophy, it is possible to move anywhere.
Water transport is also provided by 20-meter aluminum yachts called Trillobis, which are equipped with hydrogen engines and an underwater observatory.
The bridge connecting the land and sea section is limited with plants that have the idea of projecting the land flora into the sea. The main structure is made entirely of steel with all the necessary lighting systems and the floor is made of teak.
Death Star Hotel in Baku, Azerbaijan
The South Korean architects who designed this incredible complex envisioned two hotels overlooking the Caspian Sea: The Full Moon Hotel, a sphere with a hole in the top right, resembles a black hole (black holes appear in the explosion of a star – hence the name of the complex) and The Crescent Hotel.
The Full Moon Hotel is designed to radically change the appearance from different angles. Architects say that working right would create a group of buildings that would look different if viewed from a different angle.
This vision becomes clear in the pictures shown here. The total height of the Full Moon Hotel is 150 meters. The building has 35 floors and houses 382 rooms. Three large houses and an office complex with a height of 43 floors will be built between the hotels.
Water Discus Hotel in Dubai
People have always wanted not only to sail the seas, but also to explore the depths of the oceans. The advent of new technologies made the heart of the ocean today not only a backdrop for diving but also for luxury vacations. Now the innovative concept of the Water Discus Hotels makes everything possible.
Water Discus Hotels consist of two discs – one underwater and one above the water. This combination allows guests to admire the depths of the ocean while taking advantage of the warm climate.
The two parts of the structure are connected by five fixed legs and a vertical shaft that contains an elevator and stairs. The size of each disc has been adjusted to suit local conditions.
Water Discus offers the unique opportunity to be in the heart of the underwater world day and night. This whets the appetite for more. Water Discus offers a range of courses that are also suitable for beginners.
Solar floating resort
SFR is a unique building-integrated photovoltaic hospitality concept, partly habitable, partly yacht and partly submarine, completely self-sufficient energy generator, environmentally friendly and in harmony with its natural surroundings.
SFR is a hotel product that improves the standards of Front Beach Hotels and Island Resorts and brings them to a seven-star level!
SFR was designed like a luxury yacht and a luxury hotel suite with a fully submerged observation pear as the majority of people are fascinated by observing and photographing exotic fish, dolphins, sharks and sea turtles.
SFR reaches a length of 20 meters, is designed for six people at sea and is ideal for living in marinas connected to beach hotels or island resorts.
SFR sleeps six with a premium on privacy. The design provides for two single and two double rooms, each with its own bathroom. A large kitchen, dining area, living area and pilot room complete the 110 m² interior, which is kept in the purest Italian style.
Outside, the teak deck is equipped with a large semicircular living / dining area, six individual day beds and a whirlpool with six seats.
But the most noticeable feature is the fully submerged observation lamp. It’s big enough for six armchairs and built like a tourist submarine. The thick glass case offers a 360-degree view.
Water world in China
This spectacular water-filled quarry in Songjiang, China is a 400 bed resort hotel built within the natural elements of the quarry. Underwater public areas and guest rooms add to its uniqueness, but the resort also offers cafes, restaurants, and sports facilities.
The hill has been converted into roof gardens with terraces with a waterfall in the middle. The waterfall is a transparent glass volume that represents a central atrium with vertical circulation that connects the floor of the quarry to the ground.
