The doughnut shaped building will use solar panels and wind turbines to produce clean energy with no waste – and a vortex shaped roof to collect rainwater for irrigating greenery throughout the huge building on the sea
The colossal 380,000 sq foot construction has 152 rooms around the perimeter with balconies over ocean
Views will change as the hotel slowly spins around, with a full rotation of the structure taking 24 hours
Rotation can be controlled using a series of thrusters and propellers with tech borrowed from ships
The hotel will also include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa, gym and even a miniature golf course

A luxurious floating and rotating eco-hotel which generates its own electricity via solar, wind and tidal power is being developed by Qatar.

The doughnut shaped building will use solar panels and wind turbines to produce clean energy with no waste – and a vortex shaped roof to collect rainwater for irrigating greenery.

The circular 380,000 sq foot construction has a massive 7,500 sq foot lobby at its centre, while around the perimeter are 152 rooms with private balconies overlooking the ocean.

Views will change as the hotel slowly spins around, but as it will take 24 hours to complete a single rotation the movement will hardly be noticeable to guests.

The hotel will also include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa, gym and even a miniature golf course.
