Floating and Submarine Hotels Could Be Coming Soon – The next hotel trend is forming quite swimmingly. In the past weeks, two potential resorts have announced plans to create floating and submarine hotels, blowing just about every room with an ocean view out of the water. And following this trend, Hotel Interior Designs wants to show you the Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel, a completely submerged 28 feet under water that received patent and trademark approval. Take a look!
Across the Atlantic, a London designer released his concept for a “floatel” that moves with the ocean’s waves. Coasting along the top of the water, the resort is made up of little pods, channeling an ultra-modern outer-space-turned-marine design, and would move slower than the average boat.
Not only is the submarine hotel a novel concept, it helps the environment, too, and is part of a coral reef restoration project around the world. Costing just less than $20 million to build, the hotel would pass an electric current through seawater, which encourages the formation of white limestone (calcium carbonate) structures, which in turn attract coral.
Technically classed as a vessel, the underwater hotel will be able to change location in case of storm, and its developers have already reached out to a number of Caribbean countries potentially interested in temporarily hosting the unique travel experience. Each guest room will have panoramic views of the surrounding oceanic environment.
The Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel may be closer to coming to fruition, but the floating hotel offers cruise-lovers the best of both worlds. Called the MORPHotel, designer Gianluca Santosuosso expects it will cover a half-mile and will comprise connected pods, each housing different amenities like a helipad, restaurants, guest rooms, and even a pool.
That’s right: a pool floating on top of the world’s largest swimming pool — the ocean. However, one thing is already clear: both of these new resorts give “sleeping with the fishes” a whole new meaning.
Championed by Nobu Hospitality founding partners chef Nobu Matsuhisa, actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper, a 321-key Nobu Hotel – designed by Rockwell Group – the Nobu Hotel has opened in the leisure-focused City of Dreams Manila, in the Philippines.

International design firm Rockwell Group is responsible for the look and feel of Nobu restaurants throughout the world.

Recently, the classic luxurious hotel Fairmont Germany had a full decor renovation. All five floors including a total of 156 elegant rooms and luxurious suites, suffered a relook, gaining an exciting new style which combines precious fabrics and international design ideas. BRABBU was one of the brands whose pieces were specified to this project. The design chosen was Nº20 Armchair.
Six fresh and unconventional yet classy and timeless color schemes were defined to the project. Bright, creamy nuances are pleasantly contrasted by accentuating highlight colors in gold, kiwi green, powder blue, carmine and light purple. Every room is different from the other, the same happens with each floor. Every little detail is considered whether regarding decoration or lighting. Details make the difference.
BRABBU’s Nº20 Armchair was picked to the classic hotel luxurious suites. The standard version is fully upholstered in twill with golden polished nails in the back. The ones used in the hotel project have different fabrics and colors and the legs are in wood, not upholstered. All of them have nails in the back, recalling the mid century modern style. It’s a very elegant and cozy armchair that perfectly fits the décor, in harmony with the ambiance’s other elements.
Symbol of knowledge and rebirth, Nº 20 Armchair was raise through a long journey of a total set of 24 prototypes intended to reinterpret the forces of nature.
