Summer is finally here. It’s time to pack up the beach towels, suntan oil and take a break from everyday life. You can go to the nearest beach whether it’s a few miles away or a few hours. Spend the next couple of days doing what you always do every summer or you can skip the same place and experience the ocean in a very different way. Instead seeing the water from the shore, go underwater. Where you’ll dine and sleep looking into the ocean and the aquatic life living there. I know, it doesn’t sound possible but at Poseidon Resort, located on a private island in Fiji, this is exactly what you’ll do.
This will be a week long excursion unlike any other. You have the opportunity of staying above and below the surface. Each offers their own beauty. Above the surface you can watch the sunset as you recline in your suite depending on which room you choose. The rooms consist of king size beds; flat-screen TV’s and marble countertops in the bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs. Above the surface you’ll have your own splash pool and below the surface you’ll be completely immersed with your own fish feeder. Either room offers complete privacy. Not too worry, unlike other underwater hotels, this one is designed so you won’t feel the effects of being under-water; it will feel as if you’re still on the surface. After you’ve checked in, the activities are limitless.
Once you’re settled in, you can relax; get that suntan you’ve been wishing for all winter long with your favorite book. Take some time in the spa to rejuvenate your body and soul. In the evening, enjoy a gourmet dinner. Take time for a wine tasting course and then get ready to explore the ocean. There are scuba diving and snorkeling excursions. Learn how to navigate your own submarine to explore the ocean. Check out the ocean reef in a two person or sixteen person submarine. Not afraid of heights? Take off and go Parasailing. Explore underwater caves and participate in the tours.
Just like any resort it also has a fitness center, library and for those who really want a once in a lifetime experience, you can get married here. Now that would be one for the photos. This vacation isn’t for everyone. It costs $15,000 per person or $30,000 per couple. I know, it’s extremely pricey, but think of the memories!
