What if the future of luxury hospitality lay below sea level? This groundbreaking idea lies at the core of the American company Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel philosophy, which recently called for investment from potential hospitality partners. As Tony Webb, Managing Director of the company, stated: “We anticipate that many of our nation’s leaders will be very proud to see such a program implemented launch an entirely new industry of inner space undersea tourism for America and other underwater hotel host nations.”

So far, some fifteen sites have been selected to welcome an underwater hotel designed by Planet Ocean. From the Maldives to Cuba and French Polynesia, these areas have been chosen for their azure and transparent waters as well as stunning coral reefs.

However, for the project to succeed, it will first need the approval of the US Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control. Then it will be time for the US firm to select potential investors before launching the production of its first prototype.

This original hospitality concept is not the only one to stand out though: other concepts are built over the water's surface, hidden behind a waterfall or completely immersed in the ocean, discover our special issue covering hotel concepts here.
