Underwater hotels are among the world’s most unique resorts. They are positioned below water surfaces of lakes, rivers, and the ocean. And some structures are designed with floor to ceiling see through walls for maximizing the viewing experience of marine life, and some of these hotels are eco-friendly too!
Below are 5 Underwater Hotels Around the World.
Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel, Florida, U.S.A
The anticipated Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel in the Florida Keys is said to be the most ambitious of its kind. And is slated to include an elevator and twelve aqua pods set at twenty-eight feet below sea level. Since the hotel will navigate the waters, it will be classified as a vessel and not necessary a hotel. Guests will stay in smart accommodations and embark on underwater exploration. Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel is to be involve in coral reef restoration in the region’s waters.
The Neptune Suite at Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai
At Atlantis Dubai, the underwater Neptune Suite are designed with strategically placed windows, from wall to wall. Guests get first-hand access view of the aquarium’s Ambassador Lagoon, which is home to over 65,000 marine species, including sharks!
Poseidon Undersea Resorts, Fiji
To be positioned on the seafloor, the Poseidon Undersea Resorts will be the first permanent single-atmosphere underwater hotel of its caliber. Guest rooms will be surrounded by a 5,000-acre (7.8-square-mile) lagoon, which ranges approximately ninety feet (27.4 meters) in depth, and provides shelter for an abundant of sea plants and creatures. On the outskirt of the lagoon, the reef drops off into an abyss and in this virtually unexplored territory guests can go on tour in the resort’s submersibles. Underwater hotels don’t get much more adventurous than this.
The Manta Resort, Pemba Island (near Zanzibar)
The underwater room at The Manta Resort is Swedish engineered and hovers above the reef floor. It has a ladder that lead up to the roof for lounging, sunbathing and watching the night’s sky. And downstairs the space includes panes of glass affording near 360 degrees viewing – watching the shoals of reef fish. Some of which have taken up residence around the room, which provides them with some shield from predators. For instance, three bat fish and a trumpet fish called Nick is always swimming around the room and seemingly looking in at the occupants.
Utter Inn Hotel, Sweden
Swedish artist Mikael Genberg designed the Utter Inn Hotel. Noted for its simplicity, this tiny abode holds its own among top underwater hotels. The Utter Inn Hotel is positioned partially underwater (bedroom) and partially above water (deck). It floats on Lake Malaren, near Stockholm, Sweden. Mikael is quoted as saying that his hotel is more of a quirky ship cabin than a luxury hotel suite. Nevertheless, it offers traditional Swiss living and an eco-friendly accommodation in a serene setting.
