KEY WEST, FL. May 15, 2017 – Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel has just publically announced its intention to invite the hotel industry and prominent resort properties to partner with it and open the world’s first underwater luxury boutique hotel. Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel has also submitted a detailed business plan to the U.S. State Department and the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control, seeking approval to operate the Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel and Research Center vessel in Cuban waters.

Since it first garnered international media attention in 2015 on the first day of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel has significantly expanded its efforts and plans. The company has selected 15 ideal sites for its underwater hotels and its vital coral reef restoration, which is part of its core mission and vision. The gorgeous hotel design includes private rooms with panoramic views of exotic marine life and beautiful coral reefs, about 30 feet below sea level. Guests will have an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime experience of living inches from undersea aquatic life, while enjoying intimate privacy, personalized concierge service, and a full menu of luxurious amenities. Meanwhile the Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel is fully supported by sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology systems for underwater support and triple-redundant safety, affording ultimate peace of mind and relaxation.

As Tony Webb, Managing Director for Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel explains, “It is now time to present the full disclosure document regarding the Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel and Research Center to the hotel industry, for consideration to partake in our U.S and Cuba endeavor. We anticipate that many of our nation’s leaders will be very proud to see such a program implemented… to launch an entirely new industry of inner space undersea tourism for America and other underwater hotel host nations.” Webb, who owned and funded a space tourism company for 13 years, major sponsor for the Google Lunar X-Prize team Synergy Moon, one of only five finalist in the Google Lunar X-Prize.

Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
