You Put Fish in an Aquarium

You Put Fish in an Aquarium
The average everyday person works hard and makes many sacrifices to save enough money to take that once in a lifetime perfect vacation. Let's face it! You might stay in a hotel when you're on vacation, but you won't spend most your time in the hotel room!

Saw an interesting advertisement for an underwater hotel suite and this thought came to my mind?

You put fish in an aquarium. Not humans.

There are a number of reasons I find an underwater hotel suite very disturbing.

No 1: What happens if there is a tsunami? No 2: How quick could I get out in the event of an emergency? No 3: No way the hotel owner could ever convince me it's not dangerous. No 4: No way I'm sleeping a room like that by myself. That puts more than one person in danger. No 5: I can't swim! Only an idiot who can't swim would book a room in an underwater hotel!

No way I'm going to sleep in a hotel room that's underwater?

Do you agree with me?

Agree

I think underwater hotels and the places can be fun for a change. But they should not be a norm. So that way it becomes something that people try to do to make money overnight. That's something you have to understand.

Might enjoy it

I have a natural love for waters and I pretty know how to swim very ever since my childhood but I haven't had the experience of being in such kind of hotel under water. Maybe when next I visit some of the nice resorts we have here that are built under water, I would see the possibility of trying such hotel out.

Under the Sea

I do really think that it's a great idea because two thirds of our planet is covered by water. It's high time for humans to venture and conquer the seas by building cities under it. Since it's beggining to get crowded above ground because of over population then why not make some developments under water. Eventually we could have whole cities built beneath the sea.

Scary

In my opinion, the concept for such hotels is good, but I still can't remove my personal concerns regarding safety no matter how many proof there is of its safety, not to mention the price of such hotels.

I don't think it's that safe.

I do agree with your stand against the idea of this hotel. For me, having such hotel room is very scary specially if everything inside the room is made out of glass because you know we're talking about 'aquarium' here tho. I mean, what if there's a sudden earthquake? part from drowning in the water because not all people can swim, you might also die because of the glass that might stab you after it breaks because of the quake.

Disagree

It's nice

I do agree with, it's not something that is common and it is a bit unusual, but I do think there are people that would love it. I would love to stay there for a while because it would be amazing to sleep somewhere where you just look around and can see various different nautical wildlife.

New experience.

It is a completely new experience and it's definitely going to be really cool the first time you try it, I'm not too sure if it's going to be as fun the next times, however if there are a lot of underwater hotels at different locations then it might be worth giving them a try, I can see how it could become dull, just because you are not moving around too much, but it's something that should be tried.

Relaxing

I think its just another style of art to make an underwater hotel and a new experience also to travelers who spend their nights to sleep in some hotels. For me its relaxing because I love underwater view, it is only a view to give a new kind of relaxation effect to tourist or travelers.

I think it would be fine

I'm not worried about it at all - to me it's as risky as if there was a natural disaster that would occur in any hotel, such as an earthquake. I think it would be a really interesting experience and I'm sure there were a lot of design specifications that had to be checked and double checked before something like this was allowed to go ahead, so I'm confident it's okay.

I do agree with you. We are humans, not fish so why do they have to promote that kind of service or advertisement? The creator should think of great disadvantages if ever they would like to have a service like that. For me if I were their costumer, I can't relax myself as I might feel like I am not safe and scared.

Yeah you're right, it should be an ocean park, and not hotel. after a long travel, the thing we are going to do is to sleep, because for sure we are on vacation to travel and explore the particular place, and not the hotel. How are we able to enjoy this under water hotel if we are tired and about to sleep in our room? But honestly, I like the creativity of this hotel. although I agree you because I don't know how to swim also, I like the concepts, but for sure they destroy a lot of corals for that.

Well, I don't see anything wrong with people living their lives that they want to leave as long as that type of life doesn't affect the other people that are around them. This is the reason I think that having that type of hotel that is situated under the water shouldnt be a worry to me since I don't have any reason I should take a vacation under such circumstances.

However, I have this feeling that those that build such hotel suites must have considered some of the things you are having doubts about before they began making such moves as well.

I think it's reasonable to say it is a good experiment. And many business such as this do experiment. And things do happen in due time. You can see that aquarium type of hotels can be fun for the sake of hotels. But not necessary that they may have any concrete value in such case. I have found that type of approach not so good for sure.

Since i cant swim it will be very difficult for me to book a room or suite in hotel that is under the water, the under water hotel is also risky for those that can swim because if there is an emergency like tsunami it can also affect them.

I don't really know how to swim so this is a tough choice for me. I am quite interested in these underwater hotels and I feel excited whenever I see them on TV shows or documentaries. I want to try them but I think there's a very high chance that I'll be the first to die if ever there is an emergency that will occur. I can't swim but I love the sea.

That underwater hotel stay is in my bucket list. It should be a very exciting stay that I wouldn't be able to sleep. I don't think that guests would actually book a stay in an underwater hotel to sleep. The entire stay is an adventure in itself. Imagine dining under the ocean with only glass separating you from underwater creatures? I know how to swim but I'm not sure if that can help in case of extreme emergencies like a tsunami. I think, though, that an airplane ride is far riskier than staying in an underwater hotel.

in as much as I will like to agree with you,I think it about choices, because no body forces anyone to stay in a water park hotel,you only make your choice of staying in one. What ads does is to create awareness and promote thing and it will be up to individuals to either accept it or not.

I think underwater homes, motels, hotels, etc are going to be the next big wave of the future. While they won't be for everyone, there will be a select group of people who'd be willing a pretty penny to spend a week to a month living inside of an underwater structure. It's kind of like a submarine really. Except, unlike a submarine which is used as a method of transportation for military personnel, this would be for leisure purposes only.

The questions the OP has asked looks silly to me. If she is concerned about the emergency situation such as a tsunami in the underwater hotel, what would she say about the earthquakes, tornadoes, and volcanoes? Natural disasters can harm people everywhere and you never know when earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes will strike. Imagine you are living in the suit on the 100th floor and earthquake occur? do you think you will be able to fly and land on a safe zone?

People on land have survived earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, etc. If you are already underwater, what are your chances of surviving a tsunami? Especially when you can't swim? The questions may sound silly. But the idea of an underwater hotel sounds silly to me! The silly questions were the result of a silly idea.

I have never lived in extreme hotels. In our country, there is a hotel just beneath the Mount Everest. This hotel is at the highest altitude in the world. The air is so thin the hotel provides oxygen in every room. The hotel also has a medical officer who is always ready to treat high altitude sickness. The hotel is not for luxury but for the people who trek to Everest. Extreme hotels may not be liked by everyone.

I'm okay with it. I understand that it has its potential risks. But you won't be doing it on a regular basis. It's more likely people will consider going there for the fun of it. You simply have to know that there's not much we can do to predict the future. Have faith that all will be well.

Well first off, I have to say that this is quite a novel idea. I think it's cool for the people who have the guts to stay in such a hotel. That being said, as cool as it is, there is no way in seven hells that you would catch me staying at such a hotel. Ever since I was a kid, I've had an irrational fear of aquariums. Don't get me wrong, I think that they're beautiful and can be both entertaining and educational. However, any time I go to an aquarium I am incredibly uneasy the whole time because I have such little faith in the engineering. I always assume that the glass is going to break and I'll end up underwater with who knows what kind of fish. Irrational? Yes. But phobias aren't exactly voluntary or rational.

If you are adventurous by nature, you will surely like this concept. The OP is worried about situations like a tsunami when you are staying in the room under water. Life is uncertain, you can die from silly reasons. You are in extreme situations do not mean you are bound to die, you will never die until death knocks you. My grand-mother-in-law died from ant bites. Her husband died from the infections caused by throne I will be interested in living in extreme conditions.

I cannot swim, neither would I go live under the water. I would had drowned before I could see the coral nor the fishes ! Maybe the rich and famous would live under the water just to create publicity

This could be fun for people who love underwater adventure. But for me, I'm not comfortable doing it because I'm afraid of being in the place when I know there's just a little chance of getting out when something bad happens.

That sounds amazing, I definitively want to do it. We are humans, it's our nature to explore and experience something new. Is not like you are going to live there, it would be just one or two nights to experience the feeling. I know, if I consider all the possible tragedies that can happen while being there, then I wouldn't get even close. But then I think that a tragedy can happen anywhere at anytime, so life is too short to be thinking only the bad things, just see it as something exciting, different, and if you don't like it, then don't do it again, but at least you give yourself a chance to try it out.

I think that going underground and under water would be the next place man would built cities. It's really getting crowded on land and the price of realestate just keeps coming up. An alternative to this would be living under the sea or underground, let's face it, with the looming problem of overpopulation, the world as we know now is getting smaller by the minute, we need to create more space and utilizing the vast lands under the oceans to build cities in is one possible option for humankind.

Honestly, I couldn't disagree nor agree on this topic. Both side has a point. Yes, I agree on your what ifs and no one should force you to book a room that's underwater. No one knows when will unexpected phenomenon be happening and that's for sure not safe for the clients. But I think it is also good for those people who want to feel or to experience something new in their lives. Whoever created that idea of having a hotel underwater is also somehow a brilliant one because I find the idea very interesting. There's only one question that would interest people to try it, what does it feel having one night or a day resting in a room underwater. Some people will go crazy in curiosity and that might decided them to choose that hotel over the usual ones. But still, there are also a lot of people who will never tried it to ensure their safeness.
