According to the images released by architecture firm, it will generate its own electricity but that won't be sufficient to meet its entire energy needs. The amount of electricity generated would depend on where the hotel was located and the water current there.

Wind turbines doubling as sun umbrellas

The hotel will also have 55 vertical wind turbines which would double as sun umbrellas. Rainwater collectors and a water-purification system for obtaining water from the sea are also incorporated in the design. There are other eco friendly systems also put in place including using food waste as fertilizer for the landscaping and treating the hotel's wastewater so it doesn't harm the environment.

Helipad to greet guests coming via helicopters

Another interesting feature of the amphibian hotel is that it would use dynamic positioning, a computer-controlled system set to automatically maintain a ship's position and direction using its own propellers and thrusters. The hotel will be accessible to the guest via boats or, a 140-foot pier that would connect to the shore. They could also directly land on the hotel using helicopters with a built-in helipad located on the pier.
