Top Five Underwater Hotels

Jules Undersea Lodge
Jules’ Undersea Lodge, named after the author of the famed maritime tale 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, is the world’s first underwater hotel. Originally built in the early 1970s as a groundbreaking research lab off the coast of Puerto Rico, the Lodge has been in business in Key Largo, Florida since relocating there and opening its hatch to the public in 1986.

Jules Undersea Lodge

Truly an innovative concept, Jules’ Undersea Lodge claimed status as the world’s only underwater lodging available to the public until recent years when ecotourism has become all the rage. Many celebrities have enjoyed a stay including Steve Tyler of Aerosmith, John Fishman of Phish (of course) and former Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau.

Jules Undersea Lodge

Visitors to Jules who are not certified divers will go through a 3-hour crash course in scuba diving before shacking up in their room for the night. After all, the entrance to the hotel is 21 feet underwater on the sea floor. If you are a diving enthusiast, the Undersea Park is your Mecca. In addition to the scuba crash course, the staff of Jules’ Undersea Lodge offers extensive scuba certification courses and diving excursions.

Jules Undersea Lodge

After diving down and resurfacing through the wet room entrance, residents can doff their scuba garb and enjoy all the conveniences of modern life 21 feet below the surface. Patrons marvel at unobstructed views sea life in their natural settings through 42 inch windows. Completely stocked with modern conveniences like air-conditioning, hot showers, a stereo and a DVD player this hotel is perfect for the romantic getaway or the adventurer who truly desires a unique experience (and, yes, the Lodge is fully stocked with compressed air). Once underwater, visitors do not have to resurface until they desire. Dinner and breakfast are provided by the world’s only “mer-chef” and delivered promptly at 6:00PM (dinner) and 8:00AM (breakfast). I would recommend a stay at the Undersea Lodge to anyone with an adventurous spirit. For those seeking a truly unique wedding experience, why not take advantage of the wedding package?

Utter Inn
Utter InnUtter Inn exterior Underwater hotels are still largely a product of a vivid imagination. Several are in the planning stage or are currently under construction. A man named Mikael Genberg definitely had a vivid imagination when he constructed his Utter (Otter) Inn in Vasteras, Sweden in 2000. An artist and sculptor, Mr. Genberg chose to focus on “making art for the public” when he built the Utter Inn.

This one-room inn offers guests the chance to sleep 3m below the surface of Lake Mälaren about 1km from shore. The Inn resembles a large buoy with the appearance of a Swedish red house with white gables. For an extra charge Mr. Genberg will deliver dinner to tenants, otherwise, guests are on their own.

The room offers panoramic views of the lake and an old switcheroo with the fishes. Instead of looking at fish in an aquarium, guest of the Utter are in the aquarium with the fish looking in. The Utter is truly a singular experience that few have known. However, it is a wildly popular destination during the summer months. Reservations well in advance are recommended.

Hydropolis
One of the underwater hotels currently under construction is the Crescent Hydropolis of Dubai. Dubai has become notorious in recent years for its fabulously modern architecture. It seems the wildest architectural dreams become reality here. The Hydropolis furthers this notion. At a cost of some $550 million, the luxury resort is being built on the Persian Gulf floor – 66 feet below the surface. When completed, the project will cover 27 acres and compose of an above ground “land station” connected by a 1700 foot transparent train tunnel to the undersea hotel which resembles the shape of a jellyfish. The 220 suites will be bubble-shaped, with clear glass comprising both the sleeping area walls and the bathtubs. I suppose modesty must be checked at the front desk also. Anxious sea-dwellers will have to wait until 2009 before making a reservation. You may even want to have a look at some existing Dubai hotels before diving into the ocean for Hydropolis.

Poseidon Undersea Resort
Another underwater hotel set to open in 2009 is the Poseidon of Fiji. This resort is being built 40 feet underwater. Another 5-star resort, the Poseidon is the brainchild of American submarine engineer Bruce Jones. Mr. Jones was heavily influenced by the novels of Jules Verne and movies like “The Amphibia Man” (obviously).

Each guest will have a personal Triton submarine at their disposal for exploring within the lagoon. For excursions to the area’s depths, tours on a 16-passenger luxury submarine will be provided. Activities are also available on Poseidon Mystery Island which has been artificially constructed for the resort’s purposes. Though still under construction, room rates have been set. A standard 550 sq. foot suite can be had for about $1500 a night. But why stop there when you can reserve the whole of Poseidon Mystery Island for a mere $3,000,000?

Visitors will be able to see everything from their rooms through transparent acrylic walls and even feed fish swimming by. The luxury hotel is set to open by the end of 2008.

Underwater Hotel in Istanbul
More competition has arrived as Istanbul announces their intentions of opening their own underwater hotel in 2010. It will be 7 floors under sea level and according to experts, it may not be deep enough to really appreciate the underwater view.

Future plans for underwater hotels
The best news for those of us who don’t live near any of these places is that the company behind the Hydropolis and the Qingdao project has plans to build these underwater hotels all over the world. Plans are in place already for London, Monaco, Munich, New York, and the Isle of Man. Exactly how underwater hotels will be built in landlocked cities London and Munich is beyond me, but I’ll leave that up to the experts.

I really like your underewater hotel…but honestly what i think you should do is make it the same price as a regular oll’ hotel so everyone can expierience the fun of actually sleeping UNDERWATER!

max says on October 16th, 2007 at 12:33 pm:

what program did they use to design poiseden

L. Victor says on October 30th, 2007 at 12:02 am:

Why so shallow? At these prices go all of the way. Like 200 feet saturation dive. You are going spend long time down under so why not go deep? Have freedives. Go under with only the most basic of equipment Only a few have done a breathold from the surface to 200 feet. Now anybody can go down deep.

Anastasia says on February 12th, 2008 at 4:48 am:

I agree about the hotel prices…if they are more affordable, then everyone can experience something so great!! I love the idea, and I would love to stay there for a vacation! But honestly these hotels are so cool, and will definitely be a hit!

shuma says on February 14th, 2008 at 3:51 pm:

i think there is no cooler place to relax like under water lets work hard to get 25%of the world’s population down there under water well this will reduce population in our big cities.

Ceta says on March 4th, 2008 at 5:19 am:

I wonder how long it will be before not only the super rich can enjoy this experience.

efe1 says on March 5th, 2008 at 7:13 pm:

This is the first time that l read about hotels being under the water . maybe one day l will visit one but i am still suprise

skeptic101 says on March 10th, 2008 at 11:10 pm:

if rather it be in shallow waters. i just see it now. something that deep sounds like an underwater grave. Then they make a movie about it.

harry wiener says on March 19th, 2008 at 7:36 pm:

i love hotels

ecodeviltourism says on April 4th, 2008 at 3:15 am:

i don t think that this is a very good idea. your going to be destroying natural marine habitat in so many ways and disrupting marine in a huge way.

Kim Somerville says on April 10th, 2008 at 12:31 pm:

OMG!!!! L O V E – IT!!

Hydropolis * WOW!!

latina614 says on May 1st, 2008 at 2:43 am:

I agree with the prices. not alot of families will go bc its just to much money. on the website for posiedon it says $15,000 per person! i would love love love to stay in one of these if i could ever afford it. I used to think of this stuff all the time about how i could sleep underwater i mean how awesome would that be? I cant believe its actually happening and i cant afford it

Wade Crick says on May 4th, 2008 at 10:31 pm:

If you ever decide to open an underwater hotel in US off southern coast of Florida or Georgia, I would love to run the hotel. I have my thesis left to get my Masters from NOVA University. I am a certified diver and so is my wife who was the top seller in Middle Tennessee at Limited Too and is also a certified diver. We would make excellent Managers and we would have knowledge of the Marine life and ecosystem under the ocean to educate our guest on the importance of the reefs and the marine life and what roles they play in our ecosystem in the ocean world. Underwater hotels are the future to escape the tear in the ozone layer in our atmosphere above the surface of the ocean. There are quite a few investors in the US that would love to see this investment prove financially stable and return on their investment realized within a few years.

I hope you think about this and give me and my wife a chance to run this underwater hotel for you and investors.

Richard Vinson says on May 5th, 2008 at 4:41 pm:

Would you mind letting me know if and when any of these Hotels are actually completed? Who knows? Maybe I’ll get rich or know someone who is rich.

Darin says on May 6th, 2008 at 5:28 pm:

These hotels all look amazing. Hopefully they turn out as planned. I noticed some have above water portions. I wonder if they have a plan to deal with rising sea levels.

Molly and keira says on May 10th, 2008 at 9:45 am:

we loved the hotel’s look faboulse and i would love to go in one

proud says on May 14th, 2008 at 4:59 pm:

how abt the shark and stingray, they might attack and kill visitor, wouldn’t they? As this is actually invading their habitat, and we cant kill them as this should be an eco-friendly trip!

BOla says on May 16th, 2008 at 3:04 pm:

Thats a good idea, wont the sharks and stingray attack the hotels? cos this issue should be addressed to give potential visitors a rest of mind.

But kudos to the people that came up with the idea.. its a pity i have phobia for water. If not, i would be looking forward to the openings of the hotels. Good work to y’all behind these projects.

southernstylady says on May 19th, 2008 at 1:34 pm:

well our company builds large projects(we do aquariums) but I would not be going down there to build these, now maybe staying in 1 but not having to be down there all day,running tools trying to set the glass/plexi materials! and yeah they need to make them every day people affordable too!

Valerie Campbell says on May 22nd, 2008 at 4:11 am:

Haven’t we already caused enough devastation and destruction above sea level. It saddens and angers me to know that we’re now going to take it to the oceans. If you want to swim with the fishes, put on some gear and really experience the serenity and magic… like a fish, not a human in a bubble. Believe me… it won’t be the same.

Vincent says on May 27th, 2008 at 4:47 pm:

Like the idea but the price is outrageous. If I’m going to spend that per person I expect quite a bit more….

Annie says on June 2nd, 2008 at 5:44 am:

guys…me stil thinking whether i should take underwater hotel as my project assignment…hmmm,what do you all think of underwater hotel in sipadan island area?

james says on June 10th, 2008 at 4:18 pm:

Love the idea shame it cant come any quicker? i wounder what brand they will be… Hilton? Mandrian?Rocco Forte?

kc says on June 12th, 2008 at 1:51 am:

i really like the rooms and the underwater experience looks amazing, but the rooms should be a bit larger because if people are going to pay 15,000 dollars per person, they should have more space! can you get internet access down there??

mj says on June 13th, 2008 at 2:41 pm:

the prices are way to expensive. but the idea is so cool! i hope you get alot of business. but you need to make the rooms a little bit bigger if you want more business. its going to be a hit.

cait says on June 18th, 2008 at 12:33 am:

The one in Fiji looks awesome!! An underwater hotel in London though, would be pretty fing disgusting, I don’t think that is a great idea. You’d probably be able to see like 4 feet out the window, and dead bodies and mutant fish would fly past.

Carissa says on June 18th, 2008 at 7:24 pm:

That is so flipping cool!! I have been a diver for going on 4 years now and think it would be so cool to actually sleep underwater with the marine life. I would wait awhile to stay there only because the marine life will be very cautious of it and would stay away. It is a pity that only the rich can enjoy this luxury but wait and the rest of us will too hopefully. I hope they inform guests that they will feel the pressure of being 40 ft underwater. My ears start to pop at about 15 ft. I would love to stay at the one in Fiji. If I start saving my money now I might be able to go there in lets see……10 years?

mick says on June 26th, 2008 at 4:04 pm:

People there prices are reasonable because it probalbly cost a ton to build and they have to make their money back.

Meghan says on July 3rd, 2008 at 1:22 am:

  For years I’ve been dreaming to live in the sea and I’m working to get fish DNA and make it so I can breath underwater. I am going to live underwater so I can study saltwater marine life 24 7. I am starting to save money to visit the Posiden Resort Hotel. Swimming is my life and I wouldnt be able to surfive with out it.

Thai Hotel Expert says on July 3rd, 2008 at 6:08 pm:

love them all.. i just can’t afford to stay one night in any of those fancy hotels.

Jamilka says on July 24th, 2008 at 1:54 am:

WOW WOW WOW.
and i say this about the hotel and price. i mean i understand it is a beautiful exprience and it must of been alot of work to build, but if only the prices weren’t so rocket high alot more people would go and you would make as much money and give those people like myself a chance to be mesmorized. makes me sad i’d probably never afford this.

jasmine says on August 7th, 2008 at 4:00 am:

OMG that price is like a new car! And the car would last a couple years. But I love the idea I was looking at it for a honeymoon… until I saw the price.

Bee says on August 7th, 2008 at 9:28 am:

interesting places to visit. thanks.

kaylee says on August 8th, 2008 at 7:31 pm:

how much is the price of one room for a stay overnight?

brittany says on August 10th, 2008 at 9:16 pm:

i think that if the price was the same as a regular hotel… there would be such a wait to even stay in the hotel you wouldn’t get to experience it either way. 1500/night its steep but it is so worth it.

bloop says on August 26th, 2008 at 7:11 am:

such a cool thing but yeah… the price is to much. better not to do anything than doing this.i mean no one will stay even a night because of the price

Niko says on August 30th, 2008 at 5:56 pm:

Man, it would make a great movie when one of them cracks and water starts coming in.

jay says on August 31st, 2008 at 7:29 am:

Does no one remember that film deep blue sea? didn’t they live underwater til the sharks got annoyed?

Sinead says on September 1st, 2008 at 5:53 am:

Cool idea but I have a feeling it could get a little tired over time
also wouldn’t this project mean that coral life would be destroyed???

John Linderman says on September 5th, 2008 at 11:25 pm:

This idea is a hoax and if you are stupid enough to fall for it, then you are stupid. These are an ignorant simple peoples, they do not have the mental capacity, know how, or commitment to quality required to place a human being underwater to live in a clean ecosystem void of toxic waste and ultimate death. Not to mention the construction costs, maintenance costs, upkeep, and everything else! Have you ever seen the water damage done to homes? Furthermor, look into the typical lifespan of a boat haul…that is before the material needs to be replaced/refinished. I would say that the lifespan of the material partially submerged (that is getting equal amounts of oxygen and hydrogen) will be 5-10yrs. After that, certain death to all inhabitants!

Vassil Dimitrov says on September 16th, 2008 at 9:50 pm:

hello, i am a hotel management student currently in switzerland finishing me 3rd year, i have a project to build a unique hotel, and i decided to do a Submarine hotel, it is very interesting and i would like to get some points of view since everyone here is either a diver or has many fresh ideas about underwater life. add me on msn messenger ( dimitrovvassil@hotmail.com) or on facebook, your help will be greatly appriciated!

Vassil

chris says on September 18th, 2008 at 5:11 pm:

Awful Idea, where will the human waste go? where will the reclaimed water go? where will the trash go? how will the hotel withstand hurricanes and typhoons? What are the safety precautions for a crack? As a metalugist, i can honestly say this is a very risky endevour, the interrior being pressurized like diving, during an emergency how would they evacuate and wouldn’t this cause the benz… how many people in the area can be placed in pressure chamber? Very poor planning, a shallow construction would be better off. half on top and half under the ocean.

remember boyancy will play a big factor, the materials have to be heavier than the density of the water, and this will not stop the shifting of the ocean floor, which constantly shifts with ocean currents. What happens when a whale shark hits the the 3 foot thick plastic and bust the seems in the framing? like birds they may not see the windows…?

now the fames have buckled and the gasket seals ripped… there is no substance that can quick fill the seal so air pressure starts to release, any liquid junk squeezed into the crack will be sucked out from pressure.

Very bad Idea, the risks are to high. This type of project would never pass US safety standards. Sleep at your own risk!

remember the deeper you go, you have to allow for time to come back up or you will litteraly decompress and explode form the inside out!

Ira Roberts says on September 19th, 2008 at 10:52 am:

I am very impress by by what I saw and makes me feel great about the future. My only problem is that it is to pricey for the working man who would like to experince this type of vacation.

STACY says on September 21st, 2008 at 8:31 pm:

I THINK THIS IS A AWSOME IDEA I WOULD LOVE 2 VISIT AND STAY 4 MY HONEYMOON NEXT YR BUT I CANT AFFORD 1500 A NIGHT IM JUST A REGULAR PERSON NOT RICH AT ALL BUT THERE IS NO WAY MAYBE ILL JUST HAVE 2 SCUBA DIVE INSTEAD :( I HOPE THE PRICES GO DOWN SO I COULD AFFORD THIS ONE DAY I WOULD LOVE 2 GO!!!!!

Mermina Gil says on September 22nd, 2008 at 9:25 pm:

Do these hotels offer pet boarding? I have a catfish….

Person says on October 1st, 2008 at 2:11 am:

Wow! That so SO cool! I WISH WISH WISH I could go there… but $15,000 per person is just crazy! Maybe $1000 per person. Poseidon is my favorite! I’m going to get a job at Poseidon… then you an avoid the prices! Maybe in the future prices will go down, too.

shelby s says on October 8th, 2008 at 3:17 pm:

this would be a wonderful stay and i think that me and my friend would love thins im thinking on taking a trip and right now this will be my first choice

jake says on October 18th, 2008 at 11:14 pm:

its so flippen cool iv e free dived for 4 years i wish it is cheap

connor says on October 30th, 2008 at 11:23 am:

this look cool if it did exist i will come over and give it a try and so will world

The SiCness says on November 1st, 2008 at 8:38 am:

cool…il be one of the first persons to check-in to that hotel with my family…i won’t mind the price for such a spectacular experience!.

ice says on November 3rd, 2008 at 8:32 am:

the most unbeleivable place.. absuletly this place will be the first trip with my familly…cool!!!

igie mahardika says on November 7th, 2008 at 7:42 am:

great imagination…..hope it will be coming true….can’t wait to stay a view nite there….

Tyler Lamb says on November 12th, 2008 at 6:38 pm:

This is a very clever idea! I hope this will become true in my generation.

jenna says on November 12th, 2008 at 9:24 pm:

OMG!! this is so totally awesome, when i grow up i want to go to these hotels!!! make more; and in a shark free area :P

tanya says on November 12th, 2008 at 9:26 pm:

Looks fun.

Kati says on November 13th, 2008 at 1:17 pm:

I was very perplexed about how it would be possible to have a hotel underwater. After looking at the pictures, I think it looks like it would be an amzing experiance. 1,500 dollars a night is well worth the experiance, but a little steep for most people….

milly rocks101 says on November 14th, 2008 at 1:24 am:

i will be going in the near futre

Steve in NC says on November 14th, 2008 at 1:36 am:

This is a must do adventure. Even at $1500 per night I think I will do it. This would be an experience of a lifetime. I don’t think I will do much sleeping though on the night I am there. Will be way too exciting to sleep!

oliver says on November 20th, 2008 at 7:49 pm:

WOW! wish it was cheaper but ill go when i can with some friends when im older

Lark says on November 25th, 2008 at 7:36 am:

Honestly some really cool architectural work going into these structures. It would be incredible to be able to stay in one of these hotels, given the opportunity. The sights underwater are truly unique, to be able to stay under there for such times would be amazing.

As far as the dangers go, I just have to dispute a few of Chris’ statements.

First, problems such as trash / human waste / reclaimed water are going to be handled much in the same way. Physics doesn’t suddenly break underwater, plumbing still works. Also it’s not like they’re completely removed from civilization, at depths of only 40′ or 66” underwater, they’re obviously close to the coast line.

Second, the structures topside are going to take far more damage from hurricanes or typhoons. Also there are warnings for things like that, funds may be reimbursed while the facility is vacated.

Third, evacuations wouldn’t require pressurization chambers at all. You seem to forget your own statement that the entire facility is pressurized. Since nitrogen only accumulates in your tissue while under pressure (then expands when the pressure is released) there will be no nitrogen to worry about off gassing.

Forth, far as buoyancy and the manner in which they’re securing their structure to the sea floor… That’s why they’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars on it. They’re paying engineers for this to be possible, and they’ve actually gone to school.

Fifth, whale sharks really don’t move very fast, as people dive with them constantly. I don’t think a <5 mph collision with a whale shark will pose a terrible threat, considering the type of structural integrity they’re going to be aiming for.

Sixth, as far as leaks occurring, I can only hope they’ll have emergency air (not oxygen, because you’ll send people into convulsions at that depth from oxygen toxicity) available and a means to seal parts of the structure while making it possible to escape to the surface.

Seventh, the deeper you go the longer you have to wait to come up. But not because you’ll explode. As stated before you’ll have a large amount of nitrogen (an inert gas) built up in your tissue, and as you come up the pressure lessens and allows that gas to expand. You simply have to come up a bit at a time to allow it to expand and exit your system.

Eighth, you will not explode from the inside out. Ever. Unless you eat pop rocks and drink soda. The reason for this myth is that air compresses under water. So when you take that last breath of air at 66′ (equal to 3 atmospheres) it WILL expand on your way back up. If you hold your breath, your lungs will burst as the air expands to 3 times its original volume, and you will be dead. Thankfully the quick fix to this is to open your mouth and say “aaah” as you swim up. The air will expand and you’ll be able to do that the whole way as you get “more air” on your way; it’s actually pretty cool. However your ears will be uncomfortable due to the fast pressure change, that’s about it.

Not trying to market for them or anything, it’s just a really cool idea, and an amazing environment and I hate to see people who don’t know what they’re talking about go ranting about how horrible something is.

Maya Rowley says on November 25th, 2008 at 5:05 pm:

I really want to go to this amazing under water hotel in the futre!

Tony says on December 11th, 2008 at 2:23 pm:

To support Lark on his bashing/correcting of Chris. “Metalugist”? And where did you go to school? I’m glad a “metalugist” has so much knowledge about being underwater. Your an idiot. You do now know what you are talking about. Go away.

kassyxoxo says on January 5th, 2009 at 10:26 pm:

how much is this per night?

Cheska says on January 13th, 2009 at 11:04 am:

Wow! I wanna go there and try their rooms. I think it’s very comfortable and you will also enjoy the view…and…and…OMG !! Just try it, I think it’s really cool.

Parcero says on February 16th, 2009 at 2:20 am:

What?? What if a couple wants to have sex? You can see everything!

Indra says on February 17th, 2009 at 8:14 am:

wow its very nice hotel , i think if the hotel located @ indonesia area for example Bali or Bunaken is the best choice

Adrienne Rose says on March 3rd, 2009 at 7:41 pm:

It seems as though they would make more money if the cost is lower- that way more families would be able to visit – and the amount of families playing would probably make up for the cost of the rich people that are playing…
just a thought.

Tina says on March 6th, 2009 at 12:22 am:

I’m only sixteen and i dont know much about how this is being built but i do know a lot for my age about what lark is talking about and I agree with his comment. Anyways, I really would love to experience something like this one day. I have had my scuba diving license for two years now and I think getting it was the best decision I have ever made. I got a 96 on it too. I love the ocean without a doubt. I hope that we dont start building these everywhere in the ocean though, that would just be stupid..but im not worried about it, i think everything will be okay. Overall we should just be reasonable…i think its an amazing idea that just shouldn’t be taken out of control in the future! I WILL GO SOMEDAY, no matter what.

michelle says on March 19th, 2009 at 5:22 am:

im really amazed by this kind of hotel
i’m curious of the construction of this hotel
i know its hard
but worth it

teresa says on March 31st, 2009 at 12:01 am:

i love the hotel but why cant it cost much less?
i mean some people would love to stay in one
but they just cant afford it. so why cant you give everyone a chance
to get a lifetime experience?

teresa says on March 31st, 2009 at 12:03 am:

i love it
i wish i could go

teresa says on March 31st, 2009 at 12:04 am:

but thats not fair.
i would love to go but it
costs alot

the1ndonly says on April 1st, 2009 at 5:42 am:

i love this!!!! i wish i could go with my honey to a hotel like this one but the price is too expensive they should drop it a little because only stars would be the ones to enjoy such a wonderful experience like this one this is sooo cooolllll BUT PLEASE DROP THE PRICES i would really like to go to it but none of us that left a message has that kind of money unless we win the lottery….. :)

arlene says on April 3rd, 2009 at 2:24 pm:

that is so cool

hannah says on April 6th, 2009 at 4:59 pm:

ah! I stayed in one last week, guys it was so cool!
i got to stay for a weekend, but i wish I could’ve stayed longer:)
aren’t you jealous:P

caleb mulhearn says on April 9th, 2009 at 6:54 am:

where are the hotels?

Maddie says on April 10th, 2009 at 2:58 pm:

does it have sharks

who says on April 12th, 2009 at 5:31 am:

i can just imagine scrooge sitting on his clean underwater hotel bed counting gold coins and marveling over human progress, when this stoic sea creature sails by his window.
the sea creature snaps their neck on the window and drifts away.
deep down he knows that the real way to enjoy sea life is not from a spa hotel but he keeps counting his gold coins and he earned them after all right?

Bob Marley says on April 21st, 2009 at 8:46 am:

Whats with the green water, its like totaly ewwwwwww!
Love Bob Marley :) xxxxxxxxxxxx

Bubble Head says on April 25th, 2009 at 9:11 pm:

Anyone that has ever slept underwater will tell you that $1500 is cheep for that kind of sleep. The thing I miss the most about living underwater is the sleep, $1500 for 24 hours underwater that I would probably sleep 16 hours of, when does this place open?

Oh yeah and to all that say that it isn’t possible to live underwater, or have a hotel underwater, I would like to point out that the US Navy has been housing people underwater for over 50 years and with a really good track record for a company that has a tendency to have it’s people get shot at.

If you bothered to look at the video of the Poseidon Hotel you would see that it is not really a closed environment, but always connected to the surface at both ends of the hallway. As for the Jules Lodge, it has been in business sense 1986 so I think they have a grip on maintaining the building by now.

Also for those complaining about the rates to have a once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget without having to join the military and go through a year of rigorous training and testing before you get near the water, you should know that the Jules Lodge is only $375 per person per night with all the dive time you want included.

Personally as a retired US Navy submariner I have no problem putting down the cash. It’s not like I would be spending a week at the hotel in Figi, probably just spend a week in Fiji but just one night underwater. As for the Jules Lodge off the coast of FL, I might consider two or more nights in a row there, like I said, if you never slept underwater you just would not understand.

If being underwater isn’t your thing, don’t bash people that are into being underwater, it is a far less strange obsession than some others. I saw Hello Down There as a kid and that was it, I was going to live underwater some day if only for a week!

Chicken Little says on May 1st, 2009 at 3:49 pm:

if the Ritz made an underwater hotel,i would be there. Sure they’re not affordable to everyone, but if they were, do you have any idea what brands of degenerates would end up there? I think the prices are fair, the hotels have to keep these giant things maitanenced, up to date, and but all the equipment for there guest. Sorry if you cant afford it but its just the way things work. Save up a little money and maybe you can stay a while.

I also agree with the fact that we are invading the marin habitat. But when you think about it, learning to live in extreme invironments could be essential for the survival of the human race. Next step, outer space. XD
cant waittt. ~ a very wise 12 year olddd~ XD

miley cyruz says on May 16th, 2009 at 10:04 pm:

i would like to go there for a month but infortaly it way too much!

Channel says on May 22nd, 2009 at 8:38 pm:

I love the idea of an underwater hotel, but honestly we have and are invading the land of the animals above the surface why are we going to invade the land of the animals below the surface. Shuma why would we stick everyone down there? this is destroying our marine life!! This is a very dangerous idea, but very intriguing.

Ocean Front Hotels says on May 27th, 2009 at 9:02 pm:

Out of all these Hydrophilis,Dubai definitely looks the best,but actually it is either suspended or canceled.
There is no construction going on for the Hydropolis.
As with most of the Dubai projects, it was a big hype
that never went past the drawings.
No contracts were awarded.

dj says on May 29th, 2009 at 3:43 am:

this is So cool, i just found it, but oh my god this is mad as.
i am a writer, and ive been going through a period of writers block, but this just gave me a great idea…..

mad, as………….ive always wanted to stay in a hotel UNDER the sea…cant wait till its opened…!!

Eduardo Gonzalez says on June 2nd, 2009 at 12:12 am:

This really annoyed me to the point beyond belief. I read ONE comment that agreed with me. Have we not done enough damage on land and now he ocean? Believe me, those coral reefs will not make it for your stupid eyes to see. I mean this is so devestaing!! Life as we know it is doomed if this keeps up. We should protest!! I will, actually. All of those poor animals will have to suffer for our greedy desires. Ugh, this really pushes my buttons.

Drake says on June 12th, 2009 at 12:50 am:

It’s like Bioshock’s Rapture but for real!

Sandeep N says on June 16th, 2009 at 10:13 am:

Its really mind boggling thing that there are hotels underwater.And the pictures are really relieving the facts just amazing no other words.

... says on June 18th, 2009 at 9:51 pm:

Okay we’re already using up all the land do we really need to start destroying the ocean too? Plus if global warming doesn’t stop sea levels will rise and that hotel Hydropolis will become fully submerged in water. These hotels do look nice, but they also look like another disaster waiting to happen. It’s just sad that we aren’t doing anything to fix are planet, we’re just destroying it further.

Hotelier says on June 19th, 2009 at 10:50 pm:

That would be an amazing experience to stay under water however the project called hydro polis was cancelled and that is not happening in dubai any more!
But we can try the other four from your great list!

Jehzeel Laurente says on June 20th, 2009 at 12:18 pm:

geezz.. I wish I cud visit at least one underwater hotel before i die… :)

mnbcjmc says on July 21st, 2009 at 5:29 pm:

omg,amazing underwater hotels!! i have never seen these hotels before. staying under water would be an amazing experience! I wish I could stay in one of these hotels in lifetime!

unity says on August 3rd, 2009 at 6:35 am:

i wish i could go there

Luke Alexander says on August 5th, 2009 at 4:14 pm:

This is something I would want to experience too. But, with the price and mycurrent position it would just be an imagination.

ferry tuhumury says on August 10th, 2009 at 10:51 am:

I’ll be there

nicole says on August 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am:

this is an amazing idea i would very much love to stay in an a place like this it would defnitley be the best thing in my life i cant imagine nething better the price makes sense but i feel like they could go down and the more ppl that know about it the more money they will make because believe me 97%of the ppl in this world would love to stay underwater

lovesprobono says on August 21st, 2009 at 9:56 pm:

What’s with all these comments that the hotels should make the rooms cheaper so EVERYONE can afford it….LMAO!!!! These hotels are businesses not charities!! Besides, the price to build this type of structure is more than you can phathom, not to mention cost of overhead is a lot more than a normal hotel. Wake up!! This is the real world!!!!

nicole says on August 22nd, 2009 at 12:45 am:

that is a good idea..but there has to be a really good way to get out if anything happens. and it doesnt really destory there habbiates, it does yes but it also gives it more because the build or whatever can be used for its home also

Rebecca says on August 30th, 2009 at 7:53 pm:

One day the earth will be so hot that we will no longer be able to live on the surface without burning up. Imagine how much cheaper it will be to live under water. I’m sure electricy won’t be nearly as bad. Instead of going to the ocean, you’ll be taking a trip to the land. LOL. what the future holds. isn’t it interesting. we’re just so close. that video looked like something in the far far future. and jsut think. they are currently(or already) built it.

Lara says on August 31st, 2009 at 5:23 am:

There’s one in Key Largo FL. I think it’s $275 a person per night or something like that. I think you dive down to your room with a dry bag for your things. It’s really not THAT expensive for what is being offered. Personally after checking out the pictures, which are amazing, I still think I’d be way too claustrophobic for it. I’ll just stick to the dive boat and a nice view on land.

I LOVE YOUR HOTEL SO MUCH I WISH I COULD STAY THERE LOVE YOUR HOLTEL SO MUCH

Rama says on December 7th, 2009 at 1:30 pm:

I always dream weird things, I mean wish to do. I want to have aquarium house. My house surrounded by aquarium also I want to build a huge shopping centre at my home land. I have it in imagination like an apple at the bottom but there will be hole in the middle. There will be shops in a twirling kind of design then aquarium in the hole. I am not a millionaire yet but this is my dream. I wanted to build a hotel in airplane because I felt very sick during travel and surprisingly some company is actually building hotel in an old aeroplane or jet of some kind.

UNDER WATER REBEL says on December 10th, 2009 at 9:14 pm:

i love it’s awsome. (not to happy about the price ) but still its kind of cool.it would be a great idea if they had shows on the top part of Hydropolis like dolphin and killer wales shows different music bands and artises and even cooler jet ski races. A UNDER WATER golf cource would be cool and under water tennis court basketball court and soccer field all connected togethr in a huge deep sea sports arena.

Matthew says on December 15th, 2009 at 2:20 am:

This looks pretty cool with an amazing display,comfortable rooms and best of all you can finally say you were actually “sleepin’ with da fishes!”And I hope it doesn’t cost much!

*anonymous says on December 30th, 2009 at 3:59 am:

i would love to stay in one of them but when i looked to see the price on the website, it was under construction. so as i was reading some of peoples comments, they were saying $15,000 a night!?!? that is outragous. i understand that it was like a bajilion dollors to make it but not a lot of people are that rich. i dont know about the economy where other people live is but the economy here is really bad. so they might not get as much buisness. make the prices cheaper and more people will go. more people will go and they will make the money faster.

ur mom says on December 30th, 2009 at 4:13 am:

nxt ther gna make hotels n like the air or outr space. tht wud b sooo kewl!

Nick says on January 12th, 2010 at 10:15 pm:

I think that the hotel is a good idea , and personally I don’t think sharks and/or stingrays will attack , since if you researched the information , the hotel would only – possibly destroy or destruct it with heavy duty explosives. Although it is invading their natural habitat , they clearly don’t think that they notice the fact that their habitat is becoming smaller , as they certainly do not notice submarines and other underwater advancements that we have , and that means they shouldn’t attack .

slytheringirl1995 says on January 16th, 2010 at 12:13 pm:

Wow, these hotels seem great! But I noticed that most of the people commenting are discussing the prices of the resorts and are not at all concerned about the safety! Honestly people! I mean, I’m sure they’re extremely well-made and everything but bad things happen, right? First example that came to mind? The R.M.S Titanic.

amy says on January 18th, 2010 at 10:38 am:

wow that is like so amazng , i would love to go there some day!!!.

omg!!!!!!! i would want to go to Poseidon or Hydropolis but i prefer Hydropolis because Poseidon is $15,000 a nighthow crazy is that i thought it was probaly like $12,000 per peson can you lower it in the future

Sophia D says on March 7th, 2010 at 7:36 pm:

this is ridiculous! why in the world would someone want to create an under water hotel??? by doing this you would be destroying the natural habitat that people would be paying to see! not only would the ecosystems be destroyed but the water would be polluted. think of all the bath rooms, garbage, and oil used to make one of these hotels so successful! we should be trying to prevent things like this… not promote it.

Sophia D says on March 7th, 2010 at 8:29 pm:

dont go im begging you

balise chevrolet says on March 8th, 2010 at 8:37 pm:

You may be approached by beggars in Kuta, Legian or Ubud – typically a woman with one or more young children. Pause and they might literally latch on.

hotel princess says on March 9th, 2010 at 8:30 am:

it’s so cool and amazing. Lots of people would like to stay in a hotel like this but it’s too expensive. Maybe you could lower the price so everyone can experience wonderful sight and hotel. I think that price can help support charities. More power!

Jambi Arbi says on July 13th, 2010 at 4:31 pm:

Dear All ‘
The design is not feasible, not practical engineeringly. The uptrust force is much greater than the down trust load. The whole hotel, will crack and people will get drown within 3 minutes
. Please to all of you, there will a more practical engineering design for the underwater hotel. The place will be in Malaysia, now the project is on going test in-order to sustain feasible and more safe engineeringly design for human habitants. Please remember my name. Jambi Arbi. And the price is very much cheaper . The name of the hotel will be known as KOTA LAUT. Few scientists and experts and including me, are working on the project. Only about that, I could convey the message. Please be patient and hear the news soon. Bye

umlajeup says on July 13th, 2010 at 10:23 pm:

Even though the natural ecosystem will be disrupted during construction,the hotels would actually become part of the ecosystem and everything would balance, no harm, no foul.As for the ignorant ones who don’t have a clue, what do you honestly think people are going to open their windows and just throw out their garbage, and for the bathroom it’s called plumbing, in underground mines(which I’ve been to 9000′ below surface) have bathrooms that actually work. so instead of people complaining maybe they should do some research. It’s called the internet, look it up

lala says on July 20th, 2010 at 4:47 pm:

i think that everything is perfect ,, except for the price.,.. even though it is underwater not alot of people will be able to afford it except those who are well wealthy, leaving no chance for the others to explore the new idea.. people with low income will have to save their life earnigns just to stay at least three days to a week.. i know its expensive to create this sort of idea for a hotel but the people who are on land make alot of money for the prices they give at their hotels.. why not have the same price as on land so everyone can have the experience

I agree with some of these people!!! Although it would be amazing to visit you would be destroying many different ecosystems and habitats for many different sea creatures!!!! I don’t think that this would be a good idea because humans are lazy and people aren’t going to waste money on something like a proper way to dispose of trash and oil and sewege produced by something like an underwater hotel!!!! They are just gonna do what everybody else does!! Dispose of it in the water!!! How that for a 13 year old!!!:D

For all u babies whining about how its going to ruin the enviroment just get over it. There is plenty of ocean to go around, I mean whats the point of life if not to experience amzing things like this.
And for everyone saying the hotel should be as cheap as regular hotels, its a nice idea but get real, first things first the investors want their $ back which is like half a billion, and honestly if u invested in it would u want to wait 10 times longer b/c the rates r super cheap. Plus the hotel is underwater with submarine tours I could be wrong but Im going to guess that the maintanence is a lil more than land hotels. Afterall they cant very well operate at a loss or just break even can they?

John Potts And family says on September 19th, 2010 at 4:23 pm:

We loved the adventure we experenced. Were from the U.S.A. National Park New Jersey . Just to see my famaily with all those smiles, Well it was well worth The 8 days we spent at the Poseidon Undersea Resort, Its well worth it. You have to do do it to see what i’m talking about.. God Bless you all…….

guythatsays says on September 27th, 2010 at 3:27 pm:

to all of the eco nuts out there… did you ever stop to consider that you would actualy be creating eco habitate by putting these structures down there? ie: the navy sinks ships off the coast so that SHARKS and STRINGRAYS (omg do you realy think a stingray will attack you? no offense to steve irwin but he was doing something stupid at the time and he knew it. thats why he never blamed the stingray when he died…) and any other fish may HAVE a habbitate to live in. not only that why would we not move off of the coasts and into the waters around the land masses? what is it? something like 2/3 of the earth is covered in water and most of that is uninhabbited… and this isnt even specific to the deep parts of the ocean… it isnt like it is on land ware the whole thing is covered in greenary its more like a dessert… life is here and thier but it is most definatly not EVERYWARE… another thing… i agree that the prices could be brought down a little bit but i dont think they should ever be brought down to the point of a “normal” hotel… and even if they were i would be waving a cardboard sign outside saying “your all ganna die” with the prices of these hotels you have to remember that they are maintaining the equipment excetera. so do you realy want a cut rate price on that? now i understand the idea of wanting something that is a little more in the commin man range… i would want that to as the closest that most divers will get to these places is a brochure… and to think bringing a diver here that hasnt been certified or hasnt experienced night diving and showing them the ever changing fast paced enviroment that is the ocean would be amazing. however these disigns just wouldnt allow for inexpensive dive hotels for one reason: upkeep. if they came up with a hotel that could keep the place limited on the needs such as having a stove so that you can cook what you catch, and mayb a commin lodge so you can meat up with every1 but other then that ammenities are kept to a baer minimum then it may become more affordable but other then that i might not even trust the hotel… if 95% says its trustworthy and they didnt have any problems that would still mean 5% did and these hotels are in a sichuation ware they need a 100 of 100 or else.

I would love to visite a place like dis but on the seeing of things is like only the super rich can get their. Because the is too high for just one night. At least they do thing about the price so that even the common man can have a prlivage to see such wonder should not be for the rich alone. So that at the end we all would have a gist to tell God about our-experince. Oh! Let u will be don so that i would be able to visite a sit like dis. And kudo to the enginer for the beautiful work.

Chris Warren says on February 21st, 2011 at 5:04 pm:

The Florida Keys is closer to the United States. Dubai and Fuji will cost extra for travel outside the US. Poseidon is not 15k per night. The package is split up between the above ground and underwater locations. You’re looking at a full week of excitement and adventure. Renting a yacht for a week is a minimum average of at least 35k. Daytona Beach is from $45 to $185 per night. So, just what ever fits your budget.

Very interesting and beautiful. Too bad it cost more than i make in a month for one night, the price is just flat out ridiculous! Sorry places like this will never get to experience someone who would truely appreciate an opportunity to stay there. In the end the rich will have nothing!

Stayed a night at Jules Undersea Lodge in 2006. It was really cool. Only problem was that a hurricane had just blown through and there was zero visibility in the lagoon – so no opportunity to go out scuba diving once we had arrived and not much to see through the viewing windows but an unforgettable experience never the less. The other hotels being planned and built are underwater but don’t give the same experience as you don’t have to swim down to them – a bit like going to an aquarium. Paul, England

Rich people get everything, underwater hotels, tickets to the space station, and private islands. I get a gray cubicle and motel 6. For some reason I bought the guidance counselor lie to get an education and a good job. An entire life wasted helping rich people get richer and my raises don’t even cover cost of living adjustment. I am actually poorer than I was twenty years ago.

Thanks for rubbing this in my face though. Appreciate it

Poseidon Undersea Resort was never built. My boyfriend and I wanted to go, but it does NOT exist. Try to book it… you will see!

I agree with their price if you know you can’t afford it don’t go. I like fancy hotels and at 15g a person I like knowing my valuables are safe and I’m getting my money’s worth maybe this will make more people value getting a education to be able to afford the finer things in life….I’m just stating facts. I love it!!!

I wish I could go to Hydropolis for vacation with my Grammie and Grandpa and with Crampy and Lammie and my sister (Lumpy) and my dog (Floppy).

Margaret says on June 24th, 2013 at 8:33 am:

Where the hell is everyone getting the idea that these places coast 15g a night? Lol I saw 1500, that’s a big difference lol also, everyone complaining about rye price! I can’t afford it either, but COME ON, it’s underwater! What do you expect! Ever look at hotel prices in new York, Paris or London? As forstructyral and water level concerns….uh yea… I’m pretty sure they’ve already figured all that out lol … One more thing.. The one in Dubai does not exist, and the one in Fiji has been only talking about taking reservations for years now….the one in FL looks like a dump… Even if fisman stayed there ;p

Except for the Hilton in the Maldives that has an underwater restaurant, all of these are bogus. None of them are open and the photos are fake. Until they actually open their doors, don’t hold your breathe
