Moliving Introduces the World’s First Nomadic Hotel Concept

Moliving is the world’s first nomadic hotel concept, making mobile hospitality a reality with its new luxury pre-fab units that can pop up anytime and anywhere. Being at the forefront of eco-responsibility, the Moliving Units are designed with sustainability, durability, modularity and luxury in mind, and can be relocated without leaving a trace behind. Moliving recently revealed their first model unit at the future site of what will be their flagship hotel located in New York’s Hudson Valley, set to open Spring 2022.

By focusing on seasonal and traditionally hard to develop markets, Moliving offers future hoteliers and landowners the opportunity to build hotels in months versus years, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional hotel. With mobility in mind, Moliving can predict seasonal demand and adjust room inventory to match demand in real time. Moliving is the first hotel group that can efficiently achieve and maintain peak occupancy and ADRs on a year-round basis. 

Moliving units are built offsite by modular fabricators in controlled facilities that are selected in a manner to ensure efficiency, predictability, and dependability. SG Blocks, an innovative designer and modular fabricator, has been contracted to produce 60 units for Moliving’s first hotel at Hurley House. They’re responsible for creating products that exceed many standard building code requirements while remaining efficient and environmentally friendly. SG Blocks also has a notable client base that includes Marriott, Aman, Equinox, and more.  


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 located at both the front and back of each unit. They may be custom designed based on the chosen locale through the use of innovating paneling systems. 

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 bed or two twin beds. 

All units will 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 set as standalone or grouped together to form a multilevel establishment. Each Moliving unit can be fully self-sufficient, with the ability to be set in an “off the grid” setting or connected to the host property in a matter of minutes. Each unit uses the latest lithium battery technology to store energy harvested from rooftop solar panels, gray water recycling technology enabling a reduction in water consumption, UV sanitization technology, hands-free controls for all electronics, and a seamless tablet control integration. Moliving is also in the process of creating a mobile application that will provide an interface for all Unit guests to handle all front of house and back of house lodging functions, from check in to requests for additional pillows.  


Moliving offers landowners and hoteliers the opportunity to build hotels in months versus years, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional hotel. With mobility in mind, Moliving’s mission is to democratize the hotel industry and allow landowners to invest in their property as a hospitality destination in a more efficient and scalable manner. With Moliving’s Units, there is a significantly reduced risk of over-budget and/or delayed projects.   

Future Developments 

Hurley House is set to premiere in the Hudson Valley in Spring 2022 with plans to further grow the brand in several East Coast locations.  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.
