After five years of R&D, the first Anthénea Atoll luxury suite, a new high end floating habitat made in France, is poised to launch in the Middle East.
The Anthénea Atoll is being transported to Doha’s The Pearl Marine, where it will take its place on the banks of a luxury hotel for guests to enjoy and experience this exceptional, carbon-zero way of living.
The innovation of a luxury pod on the sea that offers the experience of living on the water while being able to see under it, the pod boasts an onboard home automation system that allows guests to adjust their comfort with a click on a screen.
Based on the observation that a stay on the ocean is often accompanied by activities on the water, the Anthénea Atoll was developed with the desire to offer a perfect balance between life on board and life outdoors. A private island catering to four guests, the interior of the pod offers a very comfortable high end suite featuring a semi- open kitchen, a main accommodation area called The Cabin, and a spacious deck offering easy access to swimming and diving thanks to an integrated platform.
Built and delivered with a category C boat certification and equipped as standard with 1000 Watt solar panels and a battery pack, the Anthénea Atoll is self-sufficient to power all the equipment installed on board.
In addition to an innovative anchoring system of impact-free sand screws, the accommodation pod also features power autonomy thanks to an array of solar panels, and a hydraulic waste water management system that only discharges clean water.
In addition to being an innovative, unique and self-sufficient habitat on the water safe for the ecosystem, the Anthénea Atoll was designed to offer a unique luxurious alcove that can easily adapt to the needs of its guests and owners, ranging from a luxury suite, to a spa, or meeting room with high-speed internet, thanks to a design that offers a layout designed to live 50 per cent indoors and 50 per cent outdoors.
“Imagined in the beginning as a future dwelling for earthlings, Anthénea meets the requirementsof the luxury hotel industry in terms of luxury and unique experience. It also meets today’s rigorous environmental no footprint chart that was an integral part of our design brief from thebeginning of conception,” says Jacques-Antoine Cesbron, founder and visionary. “This floatingpod that looks like flying saucer was inspired by the James Bond movie The Spy Who Loves Me.”
The very first Anthénea Atoll luxury suite has been purchased by Amal Ameen, founder of Triple Trend Design and an ambassador of the French luxury industry. It will arrive in Doha later this month.
Produced in a factory located in Lannion, in the Côtes d’Armor, France that ressembles a shipyard, the next Luxury Suite will be delivered to the Sultan of Oman. This “full autonomy” version will meet the highest standards in terms of ecology and 3.0 technology, to offer its guests a unique experience, in symbiosis with nature on a private and paradisiacal beach in the Omani capital, Muscat. For example, the on-board intelligence automatically adjusts and maintains shade according to the position of the sun while the open roof orients itself depending on the force of the wind to ensure perfect safety.
The hotel operator will also be able to supervise all technical aspects of the pods remotely from his computer or cell phone. A predictive maintenance system also allows him to receive an alert if needed
The Anthénea Atoll is designed to be anchored to a pontoon or along sheltered coasts. It is towable and transportable and easily sheltered in case of rough weather. Made with sober, durable and recyclable materials, Anthénea local production meets the rigorous building requirements of today, with 80 per cent of its construction manufactured in Brittany.
