‘Pearl of Dubai’ A Waterpark For Every Diver
The Pearl of Dubai, set in the shallow waters of The World Islands development off the coast of Dubai, has been modelled after the mythical lost city of Atlantis and inspired by the look of the Hollywood films Pirates of the Caribbean and Avatar, according to Reef Worlds, the Los Angeles-based underwater tourism design company developing the project.
The underwater tourism design company has recently completed designing a completely revolutionary five acre tourism site that will allow select waterfront resort development partners the ability to capture a slice of the global $3 billion dive and snorkel market.
- Guests can explore the Pearl Of Dubai attraction by scuba-diving and snorkling
- The five acre development will be designed to look like an ancient Lost City
- It will be located in the shallow waters of The World Islands development
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 company believes that “Pearl of Dubai” will quickly become a focus for international dive/snorkel tourism and habitat creation in the region. It estimated that, globally, resorts currently own over 200,000 square miles of unused or underused waterfront space and Reef Worlds is 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 developers 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,” said Taylor.
“We will work with carefully selected resort partners on unique underwater habitat projects that directly support our clients’ sustainability and revenue goals,” Taylor added.
An opening date has yet to be announced.
