A patent for an underwater hotel “Planet Ocean” – the first entirely underwater hotel in the world – has recently received approval from the US Patent Office and Trademark (United States Patent and Trademark Office, USPTO).
Is still not known where this unusual facility to be built, but as a potential location mentioned Bahamas, Hawaii, Egypt and Malaysia. The hotel is technically classified as a ship because it can move through the water using electromagnetic propulsion technology, which means that it can be protected from the onslaught of the hurricane by using its own energy.
Guests will enjoy in 12 functional 18′ x 12′ underwater guest rooms complete with neptune size bed, bath, furniture, refrigerator, internet, and audio/visual entertainment centers. The aqua pod type views will constantly astound and entertain the guests with spectacular multi-dimensional vistas of underwater features, aquatic life, and surface light through sweeping, crystal clear acrylic wall and ceiling viewing panels. The panoramic views of the surrounding environment will be in constant flux as the passing sun and moon cast ever changing shadows and reflections on the underwater features, and aquatic life moves gracefully around them.
The hotel will be built eight and a half meters below the sea surface, and the cost of the project is estimated at $20 million.
