Forget Waterfront, Let's Go Underwater

Remember the old movies that showed people living underwater? Or the Abyss which scared the bejeezus out of me when the platform was falling into the abyss? Or how about that Jaws movie that was underwater when the shark rammed into it?

It appears that underwater living is right around the corner, starting with hotel getaways. According to, one vacation spot is called Hydropolis and will feature 220 rooms for $1500 p/night. It's being built near Dubai in the Persian Gulf and will feature a missile defense system to protect it against terrorists. Another is the Poseidon Mystery Island off the Fiji coast set to open in mid-2008.

Wow. Maybe this is an investment to consider. Hopefully your money won't end up washed up. Here's a photo of the Poseidon Mystery Island pod from (and it looks like the photo credit on the bottom goes to Poseidon Resorts). A cool web site to visit.
