Naval architect Jean-Michel Ducancelle has designed a solar-powered floating hotel suite aimed at offering an eco-friendly and nomadic place for travellers to stay.

The Anthénea pod was conceived as a luxury suite for hoteliers to offer their guests, but could be used as a floating spa or treatment suite.

The 50sq m (540sq ft) pod is divided into three spaces: a day space, a night space and a relaxation area, while the roof of the relaxation area can be opened to reveal a solarium. All interior features are said to be made entirely from sustainable materials.

Speaking about the pod's eco credentials, Ducancelle said: "I am passionate about the idea that tomorrow's habitat will absolutely have to be eco-friendly and be put at the heart of our natural environment, immersion with the marine and sub-marine world."

The pod is priced from $535k (€490k, £434k).
