FAQs

Do you have to be a SCUBA diver to stay at the Poseidon Undersea Resort?

No. Access is simple: Guests will enter the Poseidon Undersea Resort through an elevator at the end of a pier. Additionally there is no difference between the pressure inside the resort and the atmospheric pressure at the surface, so anyone can enjoy the resort. Plus the interior is completely air-conditioned and humidity controlled.

I've heard of undersea habitats. What's the difference between the Poseidon Resort and an undersea habitat?

A typical undersea habitat is basically a research facility for divers. Occupants are exposed to the pressure of the ocean corresponding to the depth of the habitat, so they are subject to certain physiological restrictions and often require decompression. The Poseidon Undersea Resort is completely different; like a submarine, the pressure inside the structure never changes from surface pressure regardless of depth. Guests can enter the resort, stay as long as they like, and relax as if they were in their living rooms at home.

What makes the Poseidon Undersea Resort so unique?

Ours will be the world's first permanent one-atmosphere sea floor structure and the world's first true undersea resort. Guests will enjoy five-star luxury accommodations, all with stunning views of the underwater world.

How much will it cost?

The Poseidon Undersea Resort will be the only place where you can spend a night underwater on the sea floor with a spectacular view. The "once in a lifetime" experience will be worth every penny. See our Rates & Reservations section for more information.


What makes the undersea suites so special?

About 70% of the exterior surface of the suite is transparent acrylic making the undersea views panoramic. Outside of the sitting area of each suite will be a private artificial reef that will be the home for unique varieties of marine life. Each suite will also have its own underwater lights controllable from an inside switch and an external fish feeder (limited use per 24 hours) as well. Guests will be able to push a button and feed the fish outside.The level of luxury in the suites themselves will be unsurpassed with the finest fabrics, woods and fixtures. Each suite has a large jacuzzi tub with fabulous views of the sea floor as well. 


With all that transparent acrylic, what about privacy?

The suites are set up with a reflective film so that it is nearly impossible to see into them during the day. At night, guests will be able to opaque sections of the viewports to increase their privacy.


What will the restaurant be like?

The world’s first sea floor restaurant will provide spectacular viewing. The restaurant will seat 64, and the bar, 36. Cuisine will be strictly five-star with an eclectic selection of some of the world’s best dishes prepared by Master chefs and served by skilled, personable and attentive waiters and waitresses.


What is the resort’s most spectacular feature?

That is a very difficult question to answer as different aspects of the resort impact people in different ways. Certainly just being able to relax in a spacious undersea environment is incredibly peaceful and unique.


What other amenities are available?

The Poseidon resort will also have a library/lounge/conference  room exclusively for the use of its patrons. There are also two undersea spa treatment rooms and an undersea wedding chapel. One of the most interesting activities will be the opportunity to learn to pilot a 3-passenger submersible. Your personal pilot will teach you and your companion the skills necessary to explore Poseidon’s unique lagoon.

On shore the resort will have a reception area, restaurant and lounge, swimming pool, luxury spa and hydrotherapy center, gift shop and tennis courts as well as a nine-hole golf course and a marina. There will also be a dive shop with recompression chamber. The resort will have a private plane to fly guests to and from Nadi International Airport on the main island of Viti Levu. From there non-stop flights are available to several international destinations including Auckland, Sydney, Vancouver and Los Angeles. 


How safe is the resort?

The resort is built to rigid safety requirements with high levels of structural integrity, large safety factors and fully redundant fail-safe systems. Each room is completely isolated from the central hall and other rooms with a double pressure proof door system and independent emergency life support systems.

Tourist submarines carry approximately one million passengers each year and have a perfect safety record making them statistically the world’s safest form of transportation. The engineers at U.S. Submarines have incorporated many of the same safety systems found in tourist subs into the Poseidon Undersea Resort.


Will the resort be open to the public?

Anyone can make a reservation to stay at the resort. At this time  the intention is that the resort facility will only be accessible to  resort guests, so non-guests will not be permitted on the island. Guests in the on-shore bungalows will have access to the underwater facilities.




ABOUT US

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM L. BRUCE JONES

There is something magical, mystical and uniquely captivating about the prospect of living under the sea. So many of us as youngsters immersed ourselves in the books of Jules Verne or sat, wide-eyed and mesmerized, as we watched Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

I was fortunate enough to live an incredibly unique life. As a child my playgrounds varied from the deck of a jack-up rig in the Persian Gulf to the wheelhouse of a tug boat in the South China Sea.By the time I was 18 I had been diving for nine years and had thousands of sea miles in my wake, always encouraged by parents who taught me that anything was possible.

Poseidon is a vision that I have carried in my mind for decades and was made possible by two things, 1) the connections and experience derived from being self-employed in the civil submarine business for 19 years, and, 2) most importantly, the incredible group of people that have shouldered the burden and responsibility of making Poseidon a reality.

Poseidon is the world’s first significant, permanent and habitable one-atmosphere sea-floor structure. To me, this is absolutely the most surprising aspect of the Poseidon project — the fact that nothing like it has ever been done before.

With my very best regards and continued thanks,

L. Bruce Jones

Would love to try this! Undersea vacations are our favorite. A little concerned about the 1mm thickness and burning capabilities of acrylic. A good leak damage plan information however might have me putting in a call to our travel agent. Looking forward to learning more about the science and safety behind the pleasures of the deep. Thank you.

Your website doesn't include the location of the resort anywhere... perhaps it would be important to include that.

This is a little sketchy. You don't have the location of the resort, and you guys have been predicted to open up 7 years from now..? Sort of seems like a scam. Well I hope you guys can prove me wrong.

I live in Fiji, and know for fact that no work has been done on this proposed Resort. I hope no one is making payments for reservations yet. It should be a worthwhile experience once it becomes a reality.

I'd hesitate to say it's a scam when there's no money changing hands, but it is definitely odd to have so little to show for what sounds like it'd be a huge project

It sure is bs. The ain't nothing going on with this project at all. Bruce spent all the money he got traveling with his family.

They should stop this marketing.... It is unethical and wrong.

Damn that is really unfortunate that who ever was funding this or who ever was building this fucked off and let the idea go down the shitter! Hopefully if they don't get the ball rolling soon, somebody else gets it done! It is an incredible idea that IF done right could be a green, efficient, luxurious hotel like no other! You could sustain energy with the water and find a way to make water filters that catch pollution? You could almost make this a positive impact on marine wildlife!
