Poseidon Undersea Resort

Poseidon Undersea Resort
I've heard of undersea habitats. What's the difference between the Poseidon Resort and an undersea habitat? A typical undersea habitat is basically a research facility for divers. Occupants are exposed to the pressure of the ocean corresponding to the depth of the habitat, so they are subject to certain physiological restrictions and often require decompression. The Poseidon Undersea Resort is completely different; like a submarine, the pressure inside the structure never changes from surface pressure regardless of depth. Guests can enter the resort, stay as long as they like, and relax as if they were in their living rooms at home. How much will it cost? The Poseidon Undersea Resort will be the only place where you can spend a night underwater on the sea floor with a spectacular view. What makes the undersea suites so special? About 70% of the exterior surface of the suite is transparent acrylic making the undersea views panoramic. With all that transparent acrylic, what about privacy?
