suites called “Jelly-fish” with underwater viewing decks looking upon an
artificial reef bed. A relaxation room will sit at the very top of the
suite at 5.6 meters above sea levels and at 3.5 meters above sea levels
the sleeping quarters and bathrooms will be. At 1.4 meters the area is
for daytime use with a kitchen and bathroom and heading below deck and
semi submerged at 0.8 above sea level the guest rooms and bathrooms will
