Underwater Hotel

Post  Hephaestion on Sat Mar 01, 2008 11:53 pm

Visitors to Istanbul will soon have a chance to view the most spectacular ocean views on the planet. A seven floor, seven-star hotel is being built underwater on what was formerly a tobacco factory. There will be exhibition halls, and restaurants, and all rooms will be sea facing.

This isnít the first such underwater hotel complex in the world. That honor goes to the $500 million Poseidon Hotel which is currently being built off Fiji. The Istanbul hotel differs in that it is being built under the city center, which should make for an interesting experience.

The hotelís inauguration is set to coincide with the cityís taking over from Linz, Austria as the Cultural Capital of Europe in 2010.



Poseidon Inn - rather Fish Bowl Inn!!! Laughing

As Michelle says, looks amazing but I don't think I could stay there....too claustrophic for me. And imagine if the glass cracked! Shocked

Not too keen on it as Earthquakes are a frequent part of life in Istanbul,
but I'm really excited too as I may get the chance to stay there!

I had heard about istanbul and the cultural centre thing, but didn't realise it could be 'offical'..greta news too.

Itīs far too claustraphobic for me, I would have to sleep with an oxygen tank strapped to my back.

Night time scenario: I can imagine in the middle of the night desperate to spend a penny - turning on the bedtime table lamp and behold - JAWS is staring right at you! affraid

But it could be a great honeymoon hotel for couples looking for something different - boy are they going to get it.
