Right now, a lot of people are looking for ways they can take a vacation but still stay safe from the global pandemic.
The health crisis appears to only be holding steady or getting worse, which makes a lot of usual forms of travel ill-advised.
Luckily, there is a brand new way to travel around the world: by taking a floating pod that can fit up to 12 of your family and friends.
The “pods” are actually luxury hotel suites from the company Anthénea. Architect Jean-Michel Ducancelle was inspired by James Bond’s floating pod in the movie The Spy Who Loved Me.
Kelly Allen at Delish explains the wonders of the floating hotel suites:
The floating habitat runs off of solar energy and releases clean water back into the ocean using black and gray water stations. It uses sand screw anchoring to avoid any damage to the underwater ecosystem and environment.
Inside, the dome-shaped vessel offers 360-views of the ocean. The bedroom includes an extra large round bed with an overflow round bathtub that can be filled with sea or freshwater.
There’s also a small living area with kitchen necessities and fiberglass windows that allow you to see into the ocean.
Sounds pretty incredible, right? You can even buy the pod outright and live in it as your second home!
If you’re truly interested, the pods are based in Côte de Granit Rose in Brittany, France.
Even though floating around the world in a luxury pod isn’t something everyone can do, it’s still fun to fantasize about it!
Where would you go if you could travel anywhere in one of these pods?
