With 99 rooms, four restaurants and a 1000-square-metre spa the project isn’t exactly small-scale, either, with on-site facilities including two electric boats, a sustainable farm, an education centre and a design laboratory.

Hotel rooms, restaurants and terraces have been strategically placed within a circular design to exploit the sun’s energy no matter the time of day or season, with Norwegian solar panels cladding the roof, produced using clean, hydro-energy.svart men kayak open sea summer
