Poseidon Undersea Resort, Still A Mystery

    Poseidon Undersea Resort was designed and marketed as,  one of a kind underwater resort that will offer rooms below the sea and an experience that is unimaginable. They have promised luxuries of a five-star resort and an elite vacation. But have they delivered any of these yet?

    To everyone’s surprise, the plan has been underway for more than a decade. It was proposed to be launched by September 2008. The initial site that was proposed was located on a  private island in Fiji, a country in Oceania. The project was to be the world’s first permanent one-atmosphere sea floor structure and it was designed by L. Bruce Jones, the then president of U.S. Submarines, Inc.

    Poseidon Mystery Island was proposed for approximately 225 acres and is about a mile long. It was to be surrounded by a 5,000-acre lagoon, it boasts pristine waters that range to 90 feet in depth, replete with abundant sea life. All these figures are from their own website and nothing yet has been done, no groundwork, no plans to execute what they promised.

    This is what I found when I googled the opening date for this unrealistic resort. They had promised the underwater resort over a decade ago!!

    And this was their last update replying to a tweet on March 11, 2014. Here also they have no idea about the opening date. And to raise the capital they are asking people to buy watches. The money they will make out of watches will be used to build the supposedly ‘underwater resort’.

    And this was their last updated tweet on March 11, 2014.  I have to ask this, have you guys watched the Netflix documentary ‘Fyre’ (if you have) I now think the plan proposed in ‘Fyre’ was much more realistic!
