    Even mermaids need tech support.

    It's a hotel built around a central dive tank. The whole concept is based around divers not having to leave the hotel.

    HOLY CRAP I did not realize how big that tank was until I saw the diver.

    wohoahaoaa I just found this thread, this is awesome!
    The hotel aquarium is my favorite, it's in my bucket list.

    I don't know when you mers plan on starting this project (if it happens) but I'm planning to become an architect and doing properties featuring water (pools, ponds, waterfalls, etc.).
    Though I'm barely just a rising senior in highschool so thats a dream in the distant future <XD

    Nyx, since this one is in our backyard, imagine what we could have done with this old quarry in Winston-Salem.

    Mer-Resort Planning Committee

    I am only 14years old so I don't have tons of money but I would donate $100 dollars to this project and I would contribute many hours of time designing the pool (I am very good at design) in hopes of getting reduced price vacation paradise, if it is ever decided on 😔. Personally I like the property that visionarybri has with a pool that looks natural and has waterfalls on one side with a secret passage through them to get to an indoor cave pool. I think we should have a swim up poolside bar so Mers can eat and drink and socialize without having to remove their tails.

    This is what we should design it is a swim-up bar inside of a cave pool:

    Here is a picture of what the outside should look like:

    I also like the idea of a pool-side fire so we can warm up during nighttime swims.

    This is what the waterfall passage to the cave could look like:

    We should also have a fireplace by the water to warm up during nighttime swims:

    I defiantly like the previously mentioned number of people to unlimited number of Mers, and I think making it a tourist destination is a great way to generate income.

    I can just picture Mers perched atop this beautiful waterfall:

    These two pools have nice little spots to put on tails:

    I think this would be a great way to keep the pools filtered. It costs the same as a normal pool AND is environmentally friendly!:

    We could also have a small waterfall ledge that we slid off of and into the water:

    If we want a more modern yet still natural theme this would work in a larger scale:

    I also like the varying depths and outcroppings in this pool.

    If the people in charge of this project like Marlin and Visionarybri want my help designing the resort please private message me, or comment.

    Just wanted to let you know, that some of the Faeries of Faeriecon and the other fairy festivals around the country have been expressing interest in building a fairy town or community, and several seemed interested in my suggestion for a submerged section for the merfolk and water sprites.

    Also, children's fun pools with varying depths, water guns shaped like spouting whales and the like, and other games and waterpark-style attractions would be a nice touch as well.

    I was just talking to a friend about this very idea that I would implement if I was rich.

    maybe when spa castle poconos opens in NYS we can get them to have a mer weekend?

    It's a cool idea, but going to take a lot of work and a lot of money. I think equity financing is the only way this will happen. Financing this will be difficult. Which shareholders will supervise the hotel? Where demographically, would this hotel take place that's cheap enough and has a bunch of recreational mermaids interested in visiting? broadening it into a fantasy-based hotel is a good idea. Get more customers of interest that way. If you guys are serious about this. Start a business plan together and figure out who wants to be the shareholders and who merely wants to help fund it. (Shareholders means owners) we should research the things that are inspiring this idea like the Radisson blu hotel.

    Disney will be building a little bit of Pandora at Animal Kingdom.



    Next door, Universal Studios has Hogwarts and is building Hogsmead.

    Whose to say a faerie/mermaid kingdom wouldn't work as well? Perhaps tie in with The Hobbit and/or Once Upon a Time?

    If you guys can pull this off, I'll seriously have to consider moving to the US

    Honestly, I so love this amgh. If I could put some funds together, I'd TOTALLY contribute to this. I also agree that Southern US would be a good idea as far as swimming weather goes.

    This. This is exactly what we need to do. If we're going to be serious about doing this, we need a plan. It's a buyer's market right now, but opening up anything to the general public as a hotel or resort probably isn't the best financial idea. We need to put it near a city that's thriving, in a place that doesn't have horrible weather, and is at the best location for everyone to get to. Texas is a good idea climate wise, but when you think about how spread-out we all are, somewhere in the southern plains/midwest area would probably be better. We would need to have a manager and staff, and accountants and architects and marine scientists. The money it will cost to pull something like this off will be astronomical, especially in this economy, so my suggestion is we start small. Perhaps purchase a small camp-like area that already has a natural swimming area and won't need too much work, and find some way to make money outside of the mer community. We're also going to need a project manager, someone who runs the whole thing, as bouncing ideas off of all of us will take too long. Wait for the economy to turn back up before attempting anything major, but get the land and other supplies now. We can make this happen, but if we're ever going to do that, we need to stop fantasizing pool ideas (no matter how awesome said ideas are) and start planning a business. In reality, that's what this is going to be.

    I like that the land in Texas is cheap, but what about insurance wise? Depending on the area we would have to think about hurricanes and such. I have no idea on prices for insurance there. Just thinking ahead.
    An area people like to vacation in and that already makes a lot of money during summer/winter is a good idea.
    The connecting indoor outdoor poolis a great idea love the waterfall, but people would need to be able to see to the other side so that they do not bump into eachother. Also the opening would have to be very large.
