Living in a what? Yes. A moon. At a fifth of the cost of NASA’s Apollo programme, Canadian-based company Moon World Resorts Inc. has announced plans for a $5 billion, 5.5-million-square-foot hotel that is the spitting image of the moon, standing at 735 feet tall and 650 feet wide. Although it may be just 1/75,000 the size of the moon, but that’s more than enough to host 4000 rooms and suites, a crater café, a casino, and a space-themed ride designed to emulate the experience of taking a ‘moon buggy’ around craters of the moon, priced at an astonishing $730 for a round.

There Is Also An Active Lunar Colony
Hang on, we’re still not done!
Among the most unique features of this otherworldly hotel is their active lunar colony. This colony, located in the upper half of the sphere, will mimic those lunar colonies that are under active planning by NASA and ESA. This luxury, obviously doesn’t come cheap, with a fee of $500 for 90 minutes of exploring the 10-acre space in their exclusive moon buggy to pass over the craters.
With guests riding a rollercoaster-like ‘moon shuttle’ that circles the exterior of the hotel suites on its way up to the lunar colony, living in a moon is exactly how you’d imagine it- magical, unreal, and straight out of your favourite dream or sci-fi movie.
