Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel Project
Planet Ocean has released details of what it calls its first underwater hotel project which it says will be the worlds first self- contained affordable underwater hotel.
The pre-fab modular design will mean relatively cheap costs for guests visiting the hotel and will keep construction costs low, allowing for the project to deliver faster.
The walls of the hotel are expected to be comprised of thick double-welded steel and sheets of thick acrylic while the modular design of the pods mean upgrades to the hotel will be pretty simple and the on site assembly process will take weeks instead of months.
The hotel would be situated at roughly 28 feet below the oceans surface, with guests accessing the facility by an elevator and then proceeding to one of 18 bedrooms all equipped with internet access, fridge and en-suite bathrooms.
The underwater hotel will also offer the ability to host weddings, business meetings and corporate events and with development already 2 years ahead of schedule it will not be long before we see the first underwater hotels springing up.
One place we can expect to see some of these projects springing up is the United Arab Emirates where concept visions have already been used in previous projects.
