Here’s an update on the world’s most unique luxury escape, Poseidon Undersea Resort, on private islands in Fiji and the Bahamas, where guests can glide to their $1,500-a-night underwater abodes by escalator.
It’s now scheduled to open in mid-2008. According to their site:
• “Design and engineering of the underwater portions of the resort is now complete. The company is currently focusing its attention on location selection, permits, property options, licenses, etc. Some difficulties with the Bahamas location now have us focused on evaluating a private island as the site for the first resort.”
• It will feature monolithic cell cast polymethyl methacrylate viewports, so they’re planning a manufacturing facility.
• It will be built modularly and taken to the operating site by barge.
• The earliest anticipated opening date would be late 2007.
