Plans for the Poseidon Resort Mystery Island, an all-suite hotel forty feet below water, seem to be progressing well. Sebastian’s words of wisdom certainly stuck with us, and we agree that it’s better down where it’s wetter under the sea. We hope to be able to join our fishy friends in this underwater, bubble-shaped hotel soon. According to an article by Design-Milk, "the company has completed all of the necessary design and engineering for the subsea structures and is currently working to secure the capital necessary to begin construction," which is expected to take about 2 years to complete. The plans for this hotel include 25 suites, a spa, a restaurant, wedding chapel, and the opportunity to pilot one of four 3-passenger personal submarines!
