Maldives Seaside Finolhu hotel has developed an innovative new guest room enclosed in a transparent bubble to attract guests post-lockdown

Spotted: The international hospitality industry has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, with several island nations that rely on tourism as their main source of revenue particularly hard hit. The Seaside Finolhu hotel, situated on the island of Baa Atoll in the Maldives, has come up with a new innovative design that allows guests privacy and security in their post-COVID travels, but still gives them the luxury and exclusivity of the exotic location. The hotel will feature the new Beach Bubble guest room when it reopens.

Although it was not originally designed with COVID-19 measures in mind, this room type is now proving to be suitable for guests who are worried about hygiene and sanitation. The Beach Bubble will be a beachfront villa located on a private sandbank away from the rest of the property, offering all the usual comforts of a hotel suite, including a double bed and bathroom. 

The rooms can now be booked for €635 a night for when the hotel reopens in July. Included in the price is a private Bubble butler and chef, who will prepare a beachside barbeque and deliver drinks to the secluded enclave.
