Imagine spending a night in a luxury hotel, nestled under silky high-thread count linens while looking out your window and enjoying the views as sharks, dolphins and schools of colourful fish swim by.It’s not a Sci-Fi fantasy or a Jules Verne novel. It’s a real hotel that you’ll be able to visit in just a few short years.
Located 40 feet under the sea in a lagoon off the coast of Fiji, the Poseidon Undersea Resort will be “the world’s first seafloor resort,” according to the hotel website.
The resort will have 25 suites, a spa, restaurant, bar, gym, dive shop, and even a conference room that doubles as a wedding chapel.
The resort was conceived and developed by L. Bruce Jones, the president of U.S. Submarines, Inc. To build the Poseidon, Jones will employ the same technology used to build tourist submarines, which are “statistically the world’s safest form of transportation,” according to the website.
Each suite will be a module with plexiglass windows that can be detached for maintenance and safety.
A one-week stay at Poseidon will cost $30,000 per couple. The resort claims that it will take two years to build once they have raised enough funds, according to the Daily Mail.
Poseidon has released a cool preview video showing renderings of the resort. Here’s what the Poseidon Undersea Resort will look like.
The Poseidon Undersea Resort will be located in a lagoon off of Katafinga Island, a private island in Fiji.
The resort will be located on the seafloor, 40 feet under water. Guests can access the hotel either by diving or by an elevator on the pier.
The resort will have 25 suites, each with large open windows offering great views of the marine life outside.
Guests can spend hours just watching the marine life swim by. Or, if they're not comfortable with the clear windows, they can make the plexiglass opaque so that it becomes like a virtual shade.
The resort's restaurant will have 100 seats, with large windows for diners to enjoy the spectacular views.
