MOLIVING INC. UNVEILS FIRST-EVER HOTEL ROOM “ON WHEELS”
BRINGING NOMADIC HOSPITALITY TO LIFE
The New Start-Up Aims to Democratize Hotel Development
NEW YORK, NEW YORK (July 14, 2021) – Moliving Inc., a developer’s solution conceived to disrupt the modular living and hospitality industries, has revealed its first model unit at the future site of Hurley House, a luxury eco-resort located in New York’s Hudson Valley which is set to open later this year.
Moliving Inc. offers hoteliers and landowners the opportunity to adjust room inventory to match seasonal demand. Designed and engineered in-house, Moliving Units can be easily installed and relocated with minimal disruption to the environment while maintaining a luxury look and feel.
“The traditional hotel development model has proven its success for generations. Now, lifestyle habits and travel behaviors have greatly shifted. We are spearheading the change with our mobile units and proprietary technology to continue to adapt.” notes Moliving Inc.'s Founder and CEO, Jordan Bem, “Moliving is accommodating by design, its flexibility feeds the desire to roam freely helping the industry to embrace the nomadic, adventure seeking traveler of today who still wants all the benefits of the traditional five-star accommodation.”
Moliving Units allow hotel, cabin and resort communities to adapt to ever-changing trends and traveler demand. For example, a Northeast beach-side retreat can shift from 20 cabins in the winter to 80 in the summer. All inventory adjustments are handled seamlessly through the Moliving Collection, a proprietary network in place to manage operations.
Moliving Units are built offsite by modular fabricators in controlled facilities which have been vetted to ensure efficiency, predictability, and dependability. SG Blocks, an innovative modular fabricator, has been contracted to produce 60 units for Moliving’s first hotel, Hurley House. SG Blocks creates products that exceed many standard building code requirements while being efficient and environmentally friendly. SG Blocks has a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry with a client base including Marriott, Aman, Equinox, and more.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Moliving in the execution of their mobile, luxury eco-resorts, as we feel their mission aligns with ours in terms of the future of not only the hospitality industry but the overarching housing market as well,” Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of SG Blocks noted. “These agile, adaptable solutions really are the future and we’re pleased to provide just that. We are very impressed by Moliving’s product and look forward to collaborating on more units to come.”
Moliving Units are 45 ft. long and offer approximately 400 sq. ft. of personal indoor space as well as two generously sized 120 sq. ft. outdoor decks at the front and back of each Unit. Moliving Units may be custom designed based on the chosen locale through the use of innovative paneling systems.
Designed in-house, each Unit is outfitted with wood-clad interiors complemented by soothing earth tones to blend in with each new destination. Floor-to-ceiling and transom windows throughout the unit and an oversized skylight in the spa-inspired bathroom allow guests to soak in the views. The open floor plan cleverly offers distinct living, sleeping and working areas. The bed is built so that it can easily and subtly be converted to either a king size bed or two twin beds.
All Units come fully equipped with state-of-the-art amenities including a Samsung 55” Smart TV, a Devialet Wireless Speaker, USB ports, in-room safe, private bar, electronically controlled shades and Wi-Fi.
Built on custom designed chassis, Moliving Units can be standalone or grouped together to form a multilevel establishment. Each Moliving Unit can be fully self-sufficient with the use of holding tanks as well as the latest lithium battery technology that stores the energy harvested from the solar panels located on the roof of each Unit. Moliving Units can either be set in an “off the grid” setting or can be hooked up to the host property in a matter of minutes.
Gray water recycling technology is incorporated into each Unit, enabling guests to reduce their consumption of fresh water. UV technology is integrated to sanitize each Unit. Hands-free controls for all electronics are also seamlessly integrated using either tablets or a future mobile application.
Moliving Inc. offers landowners and hoteliers the opportunity to build hotels in months versus years, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional hotel. Moliving Inc.’s mission is to democratize the hotel industry, allowing landowners to invest in their property as a hospitality destination in an efficient and scalable manner. With Moliving’s Units, there is a significantly reduced risk of over-budget and delayed projects.
With mobility in mind, Moliving has created the best case use of real estate. With the ability to efficiently relocate units from one destination to the next, Moliving can adapt its inventory to seasonal demand. This gives Moliving the ability to maintain peak occupancy and ADRs (Average Daily Rates) on a year round basis.
Hurley House is set to premiere in the Hudson Valley later this year, there are plans to grow the brand in several East Coast locations in 2022. Beyond, Moliving is seeking partners in sought-after seasonal locales such as: Joshua Tree, CA; Lake Tahoe, NV; Sonoma, CA; and Vail, CO. France, Italy, Spain and Portugal are a few international destinations of interest for Moliving as the team is poised for a rapid expansion.
