Blue Development

Our Vision

At Arkup, we believe that we need to rethink life with and on the water – this means going green and blue. In search of optimal wellness, we strive to design modular floating solutions, future-proof dwellings for waterfront cities, hotels, and resorts to thrive.

We aim to help develop eco-friendly tourism combined with wellness and an exclusive lifestyle. We offer the ultimate green hospitality experience with our unique quintessential playgrounds on the water. 

Our instant floating cities, resorts, and communities can be easily deployed, reshaped, and even relocated to enable expansion and scalability, while also addressing global challenges such as rising seas, urbanization, and energy independence.
