If you’ve ever dreamed of walking on the moon, a Canadian company has designed a pretty unique way for you to find out.
Canada-based architectural design and intellectual property licensor, Moon World Resorts Inc. (MWR), is currently aiming for the stars with ambitious plans for a moon-shaped mega-resort.
This luxury project – simply called Moon – will require $5 billion to build, the company told Narcity, and it has an annual revenue projection of $1.8 billion.

So what’s so special about this resort?
According to Michael Henderson, one of the Canadian co-founders, the resort will be a contemporary, luxurious and technology-driven destination.
It aims to showcase a “vast range of components that will integrate to deliver an endless journey of discovery”.
This includes an iconic attraction that lets guests feel like they’re walking on the lunar surface and exploring a lunar colony.

“Moon will form the ‘bridge’ providing an affordable and authentic space tourism experience that millions of enthusiasts around planet Earth have been patiently waiting for; a chance to truly ‘participate,'” a statement read.
The company also hopes the station can serve as an “authentic training platform” for space agencies and their astronauts in the future.
Other features to be expected in this billion dollar project? Hotel suites, spa, nightclub, event center, “global meeting place” and lounge.

Additionally, for those with the cash to burn, there will be Sky Villas known as The Private Residence at Moon within the resort.
At this time, there is no specific information on where exactly these luxury resorts will be built.

MWR said it will license four Moon Destination Resorts globally – one in North America, Europe, MENA and Asia.
Potential regional licensees will likely be global hospitality, entertainment or technology companies that can fund and operate the $5 billion project.
This project is credited to Canadian entrepreneurs Michael Henderson and Sandra Matthews, who together founded Moon World Resorts.

“As Musk, Bezos and Branson brilliantly seek the next frontier; Moon will provide a dynamic and authentic experience on planet Earth; accessible to all, not just the few,” they said in a statement to Narcity.
However, you may not want to hold your breath as it can take a long time before the project is complete.
According The Nationalonce a license has been approved, it will take another five years before the station is ready to welcome guests.
Until then, potential guests will have to wish a star everything they dream of – and maybe more.
