Planet Ocean Underwater Hotel Invites Hotel Industry Investment Participation in World's First Undersea Boutique Hotels

The state-of-the-art luxury hotel and marine research center plans include an exciting U.S.-Cuba collaborative venture and coral reef restoration project.

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. Now he and a team of internationally-renowned experts are focused on making the first fully self-contained and affordable luxury underwater hotel on the planet.

Hotel Group Meetings: Blue Skies Ahead
After a decade of sacrifice and struggle, it seems that hotels and meeting planners have every reason to be optimistic about the group meeting business going forward. By every industry benchmark and measure, 2017 is shaping up to be a record year, which means more meetings in more locations for more attendees. And though no one in the industry is complaining about this rosy outlook, the strong demand is increasing competition among meeting planners across the board – for the most desirable locations, for the best hotels, for the most creative experiences, for the most talented chefs, and for the best technology available. Because of this robust demand, hotels are in the driver’s seat and they are flexing their collective muscles. Even though over 100,000 new rooms were added last year, hotel rates are expected to rise by a minimum of 4.0%, and they are also charging fees on amenities that were often gratis in the past. In addition, hotels are offering shorter lead times on booking commitments, forcing planners to sign contracts earlier than in past years. Planners are having to work more quickly and to commit farther in advance to secure key properties. Planners are also having to meet increased attendee expectations. They no longer are content with a trade show and a few dinners; they want an experience. Planners need to find ways to create a meaningful experience to ensure that attendees walk away with an impactful memory. This kind of experiential learning can generate a deeper emotional connection, which can ultimately result in increased brand recognition, client retention, and incremental sales. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group business and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
