The first Poseidon Undersea Resort will be based on a private island in Fiji that has an existing resort, airstrip and infrastructure. The 225 acre island is surrounded by a 5000 acre lagoon that is 90 feet deep and has 200 feet of visibility in a protected environment. The setting is truly remarkable. The resort will have 48 luxury beach-front bungalows of 1500 square feet, each with private plunge pools. Other amenities include a nine-hole executive golf course, tennis courts, two fabulous spas, one with underwater treatment rooms; a health club, three restaurants, two bars, a marina, dive center, water sports pavilion and submarine base.

The underwater portion of the resort will be situated in 13 meters (40 feet) of water and will be linked to land with two piers providing access to two elevators. The underwater facilities will include 24 luxury staterooms, a large restaurant and bar/lounge, a library, conference room, wedding chapel, underwater spa, and the Nautilus Suite which is an ultra-luxury accommodation with stunning undersea views that would impress even Capt. Nemo. Guests will only be able to book for week-long stays which will include two nights underwater, four nights in a luxury beach bungalow and the opportunity to learn to pilot your own private submarine in our pristine coral lagoon. All meals and drinks are included with the exception of specialty wines and liquors. Also included are all water sports, diving and most other activities as well as transportation to and from Fiji’s international airport aboard one of our luxury private aricraft.

We expect to begin taking reservations in mid-November, 2006 at a rate of $15,000 per person, per week. We have thousands of people signed up to be informed as to when they can make reservations and we expect to sell out the entire first year very quickly.

Site selection for subsequent resort locations is dependent on the physical characteristics of the site (e.g. water quality, marine life, sea floor depth and composition, etc.), available infrastructure (e.g power, water, airport proximity, etc.) and the tourist market (demographics, capture ratio, etc.).

We have also developed an autonomous version of the resort that can be placed offshore and would be accessible only by boat, helicopter or submarine.
Upon completion of the first resort U.S. Submarine Engineering will be offering custom built private undersea residences.
