Under-Water Hotels

Yup.  You read correctly.

Under-water hotels are the newest thing.

The first such hotel is the Jules Undersea Lodge.  Located in the Emerald Lagoon, Key Largo, guests dive 21 feet to their suite.  Never dived before?  No problem–lodge diving staff give you a three-hour crash course and all the gear.  The youngest diver to stay in the under-water habitat was a 10 year-old girl, who stayed with her dad and 12 year-old sister.  The accommodations are less than stunning, but hey–you just dived 21 feet without drowning so who cares.

The lodge consists of two 8 x 10 bedrooms which each have a fridge and sink, and an 8 x 20 common room.

If you desire more posh surroundings, try the Poseidon Under-Sea Resort in Fiji.

At an estimated $30,000 per week, they don’t expect you to dive.  Jump into an elevator and go 40 feet down to a corridor in order to access your underwater pod.

There are also plans in the works for a 7-star under-water hotel in Dubai, for a mere $28,000 per night. 

Guess I’ll be sleeping in my car.
