In Iceland, a hotel opened with rooms in the form of soap bubbles: they are absolutely transparent
It’s hard to imagine, but the owner of the 5 Million Star hotel has designed beautiful hotel rooms where you can spend hours admiring the Northern lights or the starry sky in the heart of the wild. And all this amazing beauty guests can see, lying in a luxurious bed in the middle of a picturesque forest and not even freeze in the bitter winter cold. And this is not fiction – these are real spherical numbers created in the form of transparent soap bubbles.
This amazing hotel is located in the picturesque forest by the river Hvita in Skalholt (Iceland), and each room is located at a huge distance from each other. And there is a very good reason for this, because they are absolutely transparent and have a fantastic appearance.Their spherical shape in the form of soap bubbles with interior items located in them looks completely improbable and even, you can say, alien.By the way, similar hotels located in various secluded corners of France were described earlier on Novate.ru.
Robert Robertsson, the owner of this unusual hotel, has always sought to create a comfortable environment for its visitors, so that they can enjoy themselves to the maximum, while not suffering from the cold.
After all, the Northern lights can only be seen in winter, and at this time in Iceland, not only frosty, but also a piercing icy wind will not allow you to enjoy this incredible natural phenomenon. And “catch” it is not so easy, because very often the sky is overcast, and for such a spectacular phenomenon, you have to literally “hunt”.So Robertsson, using as examples similar portable huts designed by the French designer Pierre-Stephane Dumas, designed special transparent rooms of five different types. Which even gave names-Una, Asta, Thorunn, Valdis and Maria. The created plastic hemispheres are 4 meters in diameter,and their height reaches 3 meters.Each structure is installed on a wooden platform, and the bubble rooms themselves are made of fire-resistant plastic with a special sun protection coating that protects against UV rays. Each such bubble is absolutely unique, and differs from the others depending on the specific requests of visitors and the package of services provided.
In General, the original transparent huts look almost the same, they must have a double bed, and a bathroom, bathroom, Jacuzzi and kitchen are located nearby. Therefore, if vacationers want to visit the bathroom, in contrast to standard hotel rooms, they will have to take with them everything necessary for taking water procedures.And another unexpected feature of the hotel “5 million stars” is the lack of service, which means that guests will have to maintain cleanliness and prepare food themselves, and you will need to worry about food in advance. Such extraordinary living conditions are not new in the modern hotel business, with the most extravagant, and sometimes even fantastic rules of recreation Novate.ru I’ve already introduced my readers.
These unusual numbers-bubbles maintain this shape due to the excessive pressure created by the silent ventilation system. The hemispheres have climate control, which allows you to provide a comfortable room temperature both on a hot summer day and in the winter cold. To ensure that the air has optimal humidity and freshness, the system updates it inside the room five times an hour.
Since the original soap bubbles are completely transparent, in order to ensure complete privacy, they are located at a fairly large distance from each other and their location, those who want to relax in such exotic conditions, will only find out after prepayment and just before settling in. But for fans of such an extraordinary holiday, all the rules and conditions are not very exciting, because even the most refined standard hotels will not be able to boast of such opening splendor.
In the warm season, the transparent bubbles in the daytime offer a wonderful view of the river or forest thicket, and at night you can watch the fantastic glow of the stars and the twinkling lights of airplanes or satellites.
In winter, fans of extreme travel and special sensations will be able to see with their own eyes (if they are lucky!) all the splendor of the Northern lights, and without leaving the room. Basking on a huge bed in your favorite pajamas, in the middle of a snow-covered forest, you can endlessly admire the greenish dancing lights that illuminate the frosty sky.
And although the winter daylight in Iceland lasts only four hours, the view around the bubble houses will be simply amazing, because looking at the surrounding snow-covered pines, you will definitely feel that this is not just a forest, but a real snow-white Wonderland in a Christmas fairy tale.
When traveling, everyone wants to get a lot of impressions from the sights they have seen and the amazing nature. But along with all the excursions and walks to the most incredible places, life in fantastic hotels can leave simply stunning impressions for their visitors.
