  1. the Seedpod

    15 Comments

    The Seedpod can be hung from trees, rocks, beams or tripods and can typically be installed in a day.

    In many ways the Seedpod encapsulates Nomadic Resorts’ ethos: the organically shaped pod discretely integrates the surrounding landscape so naturally, that it resembles a human nest, floating above the forest floor.

    When designing the pod, we aspired to make a new kind of hotel room, an affordable alternative space that had the lowest possible physical impact on the site and the quickest possible installation time – whether you use it an experiential treehouse for adventure loving guests sleeping out by the river after a long hike, or a picnic pod for a mosquito free, outdoor dinner on the beach; the pod offers guests a unique experience – the freedom to float.

    The seemingly ethereal pod, is however, like a real seed, remarkably strong, thanks to its inherently aerodynamic form. The structure is engineered to withstand wind speeds of up to 120km/h allowing guests to sleep tight whatever the weather.

    At night, lit up, it transforms into a romantic lantern floating in the darkness – a perfect place to cuddle up.

    Optionally the Seedpod can be accompanied by a bathroom unit, providing the perfect solution for the more remote locations.
