The seaside resort offers visitors a cool drink or tasty meal, a dip in a pool, a karaoke session or an overnight stay, all with a view. Nothing much new there, you may say -- creature comforts like this are pretty much standard in tropical hotels. The big difference, though, is that this mini resort is also a moveable island that floats on plastic bottles.
