Progress on the Poseidon Underwater Resort


It was way back in 2008 that we mentioned that Poseidon Resorts was designing a hotel for the sea floor. The idea came from the President of US Submarines Inc., L. Bruce Jones, but has taken some time to progress.  Negotiations with the American owners of Eleuthera, an island in the Bahamas, to build the resort at a reef there, were unsuccessful. Instead, a deal has been struck at a privately-owned island in northeastern Fiji and work is said to be underway there.

Situated 12 metres underwater, the resort will be connected to the land by two piers with elevators to enter and exit each of the two units. In one unit there will be 24 suites, a restaurant and bar. In the other, a lounge/library, spa, conference room, theatre, wedding chapel and one larger suite.

Back on land there will be a complex with additional facilities and a further 51 units, including beach and over-water bungalows, plus a Presidential Suite.

The design and engineering of structural works has apparently been completed and the company is now looking to secure capital for construction which will take a further two years. In the meantime, here’s a nice video you can watch:
