Los Angeles-based Reef Worlds are designing the world’s largest sustainable underwater tourism site in Dubai and others across the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The underwater tourism design company has recently completed designing a revolutionary five-acre tourism site that will allow select waterfront resort development partners the ability to capture a global $3bn dive and snorkel market.
The unique site is being designed to look like an ancient Lost City. Reef Worlds entertainment team have designed for blockbuster movies like Avatar and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Once opened, the ‘Pearl of Dubai’ will quickly become a focus for international dive/snorkel tourism and habitat creation in the region. It is estimated that globally resorts currently own over 200,000 square miles of unused or underused waterfront space and Reef Worlds are enhancing those spaces one iconic development at a time.
“The UAE has a unique tourism problem that we address,” says Dave Taylor, director of development for Reef Worlds. “When one considers Dubai and the region, scuba diving and underwater exploration is not on the top ten list, and yet it is almost everywhere else in the world.”
The company has plans to expand with waterfront resort developments from Dubai to the Philippines in places where tourism and regional habitat could use an immediate boost.
“The Reef Worlds brand is all about sustainability and the creation of new habitat while at the same time adding instant tourism revenue and excitement to waterfront resorts.
“We will work with carefully selected resort partners on unique underwater habitat projects that directly support our clients’ sustainability and revenue goals.” Taylor added.
