Underwater Hotels: Challenges

There are many environmental issues involved with the construction of underwater hotels like a recycling of the wastes from the underwater hotels before dumping it into the sea or ocean. Removal of all the rocks, corals, seaweeds for the construction of underwater hotels disturbs the ecosystem of that marine region. The huge underwater hotel constructions are a threat to endangered marine species whether it be flora or fauna. Lights from these hotels create strange sleeping habits for marine animals. Food sources and habitats of marine animals are disturbed. Being a threat to the ocean life, underwater hotels are not sustainable development projects. Many investors are withdrawing their money from the ongoing underwater hotel projects. The cost of developing underwater hotels is exorbitant. Underwater, hotels require ultra-modern architecture with most advanced technology to build. Therefore their construction is expensive as well as time-consuming.
