Sable Island sits in the middle of “The Graveyard of the Atlantic,” and has been the site of roughly 475 shipwrecks, and is home to over 400 wild horses. These horses have managed to survive on the island with only sea grass and rainwater. While it has never been permanently settled, it has been occupied by shipwrecked sailors, transported convicts and pirates. It was declared Canada’s 43rd National Park on June 20th, 2013.
The Poseidon Resort is for anyone who has always wanted to experience the life of the Little Mermaid and sleep under the deep blue sea, surrounded by beautiful rainbow fish and marine life. But you had better have a royal bank account if you wish to experience the life of the princess of the sea. A one-week stay at Poseidon will cost $30,000 per couple. Or you can go whole hog if King Poseidon really is your father and rent the whole resort for $3,000,000! Can you believe that’s actually an option?
The resort, which is currently under construction on Katafinga Island in Fiji, will feature twenty-two 550-square-foot (51 m2) guest rooms, an underwater restaurant and bar, a library, conference room, wedding chapel, spa and a 1,200-square-foot (110 m2) luxury suite.
The resort claims that it will take two years to build once they have raised enough funds, and has released a cool preview video showing renderings of the resort. Here’s what the Poseidon Undersea Resort will look like.
The first edition of Film on the Rocks Yao Noi took place on Archipelago Cinema, designed by German-born and Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren. Guests were taken by boat through the darkness of the sea to arrive on a glowing raft in the middle of the quiet waters of Nai Pi Lae lagoon on Kudu Island. Surrounded by a dramatic landscape of towering rocks emerging from the ocean, the audience experienced an atmospheric convergence of nature and cinematic narratives – primordial notions of light, sound and stories suspended in the darkness between sea and sky.
