In Iceland opened a hotel with rooms in the form of soap bubbles: they are absolutely transparent
It’s hard to imagine, but the owner of the hotel The 5 Million Star himself has developed wonderful hotel rooms in which you can spend hours admiring the Northern Lights or the starry sky in the very center of the wild nature. And all this amazing beauty guests can contemplate lying in a luxurious bed in the middle of a picturesque forest and not even freeze in the fierce winter cold. And this is not fantastic – these are real spherical numbers created in the form of transparent soap bubbles.
This amazing hotel is located in a picturesque forest by the river Hvita in Skalholt (Iceland), and each room is at a great distance from each other. And there is a very good reason for this, because they are absolutely transparent and have a fantastic view.
Their spherical shape in the form of soap bubbles with interior objects in them looks completely improbable and even, one might 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 his visitors, so that they enjoy the maximum, while not suffering from the cold.
After all, the Northern Lights can be seen only in the winter, and this time in Iceland is not only frosty, but the piercing icy wind will not allow enough to enjoy this incredible natural phenomenon. Yes, and “catch” it is not so easy, because very often the sky is overcast, and for such a spectacular phenomenon, in the literal sense of the word, you have to “hunt.”
Therefore, Robertsson, having similar portable huts as samples, which were developed by the French designer Pierre-Stefan Dumas, designed special transparent numbers of five different types. Which even gave names – Una, Asta, Thorunn, Valdis and Maria. Created plastic hemispheres are 4 meters in diameter, and their height reaches 3 metros.
Each design is installed on a wooden platform, and the non-bubbles themselves are made of fire-resistant plastic with a special sunscreen 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 always have a double bed, and the bathroom, bathroom, jacuzzi and kitchen are nearby. Therefore, if vacationers want to visit the bathroom, then unlike the standard hotel rooms, they will have to take with them everything they need to make water treatments.
And another unexpected feature of the hotel “5 million stars” – lack of service, and this means that guests will have to maintain the cleanliness and prepare food themselves, and you will have to worry about food in advance. Such extraordinary living conditions are not news in the modern hotel business, with the most extravagant, and sometimes even fantastic rules of rest, Novate.ru has already introduced its readers.
These unusual non-bubble bubbles maintain this shape due to the excessive pressure that the silent ventilation system creates. Climate control is installed in the hemispheres, which allows the room to be provided with a comfortable temperature both on a hot summer day and in the winter cold. In order for the air to have optimum humidity and freshness, the system updates it inside the room five times per hour.
Since the original bubbles are completely transparent, to ensure complete confidentiality, they are located at a sufficiently large distance from each other and about their whereabouts, wishing to relax in such exotic conditions, they learn only after prepayment and just before settling. But for lovers of such an extraordinary holiday, all the rules and conditions do not really care, because even the most sophisticated standard hotels will not be able to boast of such opening magnificence.
In the warm season, transparent bubbles in the daytime offer a delightful view of the river or forest thicket, and at night you can observe the fantastic glow of the stars and the twinkling lights of airplanes or satellites.
In winter, lovers of extreme travel and special sensations will be able to see with their own eyes (if lucky!) All the magnificence of the Northern Lights, and not leaving the room. Reeling on a huge bed in your favorite pajamas, in the middle of a snow-covered forest you can endlessly admire, illuminating the frosty sky.
