Fiji's Underwater Hotel to Open Soon? That Sounds a Bit Fishy
The facts are getting a little more concrete on Fiji's coming underwater hotel--although to match its name, the exact location of Poseidon Resort's Mystery Island is still, well, a mystery. Press reports are pretty firm on construction beginning next month, with 24 underwater suites 40 foot down will complement beach and over water bungalows to make up the resort. Submarine engineers have been hard at work designing the suites, revolving restaurant and spa treatment rooms to give you the ultimate in live-with-the-fishes luxury--remember, they're calling it a 7-star resort.
Just when you'll be able to spend your $15,000 a week (note that only 2 of these nights will actually be spent underwater) is still a bit murky. Here at HotelChatter our last predicted completion date was mid-2008; press reports have pushed that a little to September 2008, and Poseidon's website itself mentions early 2009. We don't recommend making your reservations just yet.
