Do you want to embrace your inner mermaid? American submariner L. Bruce Jones wants to give you the chance.
For more than 6 years, he’s been pushing a big idea: an underwater hotel.
Now, his dream is finally coming true.
The facility includes 25 suites, a gym, a bar, a library, and a restaurant. There’s even a wedding chapel, for those who want to tie the knot nautically.
As for location, Jones has purchased a small, privately-owned island in the northeast of Fiji. You will arrive on the island first, then take a special elevator down into your room in the lagoon.
There you will be greeted by a rich and beautiful underwater ecosystem. You’ll even be able to explore the reef in personal a submarine provided by the resort.
Of course, the entire resort is one big submarine. Only stationary, and far more comfortable.
And no need to worry about safety: each compartment can be sealed off in the event of an emergency, or raised to the surface if it needs repair.
But if you prefer to stay on dry land, Jones plans to build additional accomodations on the island, along with restaurants, and even a golf course.
I know what you’re thinking: “sign me up!”
Hold your horses; it’s still under construction.
And if you ever want to visit, you should probably start saving now; a week here will cost you $15,000 per person.
Or if you really want to go big, you can book the entire resort for $3,000,000.
Did I mention this place was exorbitantly expensive?
