Prefabricated cabins continue to consolidate their presence in the tourist field.There are many characteristics that make them ideal tools to advance a more equitable sector, thanks to their affordability, mobility and localized construction.But not only this, but this type of accommodation, in principle, is more sustainable from the point of view of the environment.The New York startup Moliving is working along these lines, and after some time working on its prototypes, it will finally see a new hotel, Hurley House, which will have its cabins and will open this spring in the north of the state of New York.“Moliving is a nomadic hospitality solution that can appear anytime, anywhere.By being at the forefront of sustainability and technology, Moliving has created the best real estate use case”, they explain on their website.These pods were designed by an in-house team led by architect Steven Chen and Moliving COO Hanna Bem.The capsules are built in controlled facilities and then transported to the hotel property.They are intended to exist alongside permanent structures that house guest services.The flexibility they offer is such that if the need for hotel rooms changes, the pods can be moved to a new location "without a trace," according to the company.The hotel will be installed on a 22-hectare estate in the city of Hurley, in the Hudson Valley, and will comprise 60 modules.The ownership of the project is joint, since while Moliving is the owner of the units and will act as hotel operator, Arizona Investissements is the company that owns the land.The booths are being built by SG Blocks, a Brooklyn-based modular manufacturer.Each rectangular unit is 14 meters long and totals 37 m2.There are also two decks at the front and rear of the unit, each 11 m2.The units can be alone or grouped.They feature slightly sloping roofs and facades that can be clad in different materials, depending on the location.The capsules are wrapped in recycled wood.Inside, there are different areas to live, sleep and work.The cabin's built-in 'king size' bed can be converted into a pair of single beds.Each of the pods has a full bathroom, but no kitchen.The team put an emphasis on ushering in daylight.All units come equipped with smart TV, wireless speaker, USB ports, safe, private bar, and electronically controlled curtains.High-tech elements include a UV disinfection station and a tablet monitoring system.Solar panels on the roofs generate power, which is then stored in a lithium battery.Each unit has its own water recycling system, the team said.“With sustainability at its core, Moliving seamlessly integrates sophisticated technology with nature with virtually no disturbance to the environment.Using the 'off-grid' configuration, Moliving Units can be completely self-sufficient”, they explain.Concern for the environment continues to grow at an unstoppable rate among a large part of the citizenry.This is the conclusion drawn from the data obtained by a survey by the independent consulting firm IPSOS in 27 countries.In the case of Spain, 51% of those surveyed expressed concern about the environmental challenges facing the planet.This sentiment has had repercussions in many economic sectors, such as tourism.For this reason, initiatives have been emerging for some time with the aim of reducing the environmental impact as much as possible and moving towards a sustainable tourism model.A model that the World Tourism Organization defines as follows: "Tourism that takes full account of current and future economic, social and environmental impacts to meet the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities" .The Andalusian government has granted environmental authorization for the rehabilitation of the Las Chiqueras farmhouse into an eco-hotel with 30 rooms, a restaurant and a swimming pool, located less than a kilometer from the Genoveses beach, in the heart of the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park in Almería .Now it will be the Níjar City Council that takes the next step to declare the public or social utility of the tourism project.Lapland, that cold and distant territory that extends in the northernmost part of the Scandinavian Peninsula.If we think of it, surely the first thing that comes to mind is ice, cold, Lapps, igloos, reindeer and penguins.However, Lapland is much more than that.For example, in this region near the North Pole, the northern lights streak across the sky, the sun does not set for months, and one of the most famous characters in the entire world has his residence: Santa Claus.And since Santa Claus lives there, a whole series of leisure infrastructures have been created to amuse all the visitors who come there every year.SantaPark Arctic World, on the outskirts of Rovaniemi, the capital of Lapland, is an indoor amusement park voted "the world's top Christmas destination", where visitors can attend the School of Elves, visit Santa's Office, explore an Ice Gallery and even cross the Arctic Circle underground, among other Christmas attractions.Africa is a continent of contrasts.Along with cities with significant pockets of poverty and inequality, we find paradisiacal places that are unparalleled in other parts of the world.Despite the difficulties that many of its countries are experiencing, its natural wealth and the beauty of its landscapes are two of the factors that could help improve the situation of many of the people who live there.An example of this is Mozambique, one of the poorest countries in the world (it ranks 181 in the Human Development Index ranking), but with the potential to attract tourism, especially for its fantastic and endless virgin beaches.Beautiful rural house for sale in Valldemossa, Mallorca, for 23 million
