Property Under The Sea

On land, real estate developers have to compete for space, so it makes sense they occasionally turn to unchartered territory like the ocean. Over the last decade, a number of hotels and restaurants around the world have made a splash by locating a few leagues under the sea. Costly to build, they can charge a pretty penny, but promise to provide an exclusive and truly special experience.

Adventurers looking for trips off the beaten path can choose their underwater comfort level from a handful of options. Four different hotels I like are: the cozy chambers of Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida (also a research lab); an underwater room at the floating Utter Inn near Stockholm, Sweden; eight suites at the floating Reefworld off the Great Barrier Reef in Australia; and the luxury, six-star Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort. Granted that last property is a Hilton hotel built on the water, it does feature a fine-dining restaurant below the surface with panoramic views.

If it turns out our efforts to create a colony on the moon fall through, I vote we continue build a city under the sea.
