US: The 60-suite resort Moliving at Hurley House is due to open later this year in Hudson Valley.
Moliving announced its “hotel room on wheels” concept last year. Each suite features a self-levelling system which, when added or removed from land, leaves no impact on the earth. The idea is that hoteliers can adjust inventory based on seasonal demand.
The suites have been engineered to harvest enough solar energy to be fully independent from the power grid. Technology has been integrated to enable guests optimise their stay by selecting their preferred room temperature and lighting. Data will be saved by Moliving and repurposed to optimise the use of energy.
Additional sustainable initiatives at Hurley House include access to electric golf carts and bicycles as no cars or vehicles are allowed on property, partnerships with local farm producers and suppliers for the restaurants and bars, as well as the commitment to plant one tree for every reservation booked with support from One Tree Planted.
Jordan Bem, founder and CEO of Moliving, said: “We are expanding the boundaries of traditional hospitality and are well on the way to introducing a never-before-seen sustainable concept that no one has yet attempted to achieve. Moliving at Hurley House will not only mark the brand’s flagship debut, but it will also establish a new standard of what eco-responsible development means for the hospitality, real estate and construction industries as a whole.”
Agustin Desintonio, head of hospitality at Moliving, added: “At Moliving, we strive to create our guest’s path to adventure and comfort without ever leaving a footprint behind. This environment is curated by delivering an unparalleled level of service in an environment that implements an eco-friendly philosophy through every step of their stay.”
