Green tourism is a growing trend around the world. Tourists going to places want to leave a minimal footprint on the nature there. In view of these new needs, In-Tenta has come up with an excellent idea – that of an environment-friendly, portable apartment called ‘Drop Eco-Hotel.’
Drop Eco-Hotel follows a very unique design. It essentially comprises of wood, steel and polycarbonate, giving it a very light weight compared to other units of similar size. It’s size is such that it includes a living room, kitchen, terrace, a bedroom and a small bathroom.
The beauty of this exquisite unit is that it can easily be carried to any place you want to take it to. Moreover, you can easily place it over any surface, even if it’s rough. Thanks to its adjustable steel legs, you can have it ‘stand’ on a rough terrain if you don’t want the unit’s body touching the floor.
The overall functioning of this product which is being envisioned as a hotel room, is also green in its nature. For instance, power is generated by the use of photovoltaic cells whereas the rooms are also fitted with a rainwater collection system to gather water for bathing.
Most of the parts of the unit are convertible. For instance, you can flip open the living room or have your unit extended to add more rooms to it. A unique skylight which runs the entire length of the unit is able to light up all the portions without you needing to open the doors on either side.
In all, the concept of this ‘hotel room’ is absolutely fantastic. Not only does it go a long way to allow tourists to live in a green manner amidst nature, it also utilizes some very innovative design features and the portability of the units is an advantage that may interest tourism companies, shall they decide to buy these pods.
