The world’s first underwater hotel is currently in plans for construction but a stay will cost visitors millions of dollars.
The Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel has yet to be built but has received USA Patent and Trademark approval as the world’s first underwater luxury hotel. Guests will be able to explore hidden depths of the ocean, staying 28 feet below sea level. The hotel is technically classed as a vessel, as it can navigate ocean waters using electromechanical propulsion technology. That means it can seek shelter under its own power in the event of a hurricane. The new hotel will set guests back a hefty price. The ambitious project aims to create a luxury boutique deep beneath the crystal-clear waters of a Caribbean island nation.
“I refer to it as inner space tourism, and the new industry is now ready to launch into the ocean frontier,” Tony Webb, the hotel designer said.
Meanwhile, the philanthropic goal is to give back to the planetary community through Biorock coral reef restoration of the world’s endangered coral reefs.
“We have selected a superior international location for our test site for the single unit hotel, and once the permit is issued then the count-down clock begins. We will offer an opportunity to be part of the inner space tourism industry to every Caribbean island nation, too. All they have to do is approve a mooring location for the Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel single unit with elevator. We will provide the protection, management and expansion of the most fascinating hotels on the planet,” Webb said.
Buyers can purchase a single unit Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel and place it in a Caribbean setting, or snap up the entire 12-room design for complete privacy.
