Jules Undersea Lodge



Jules Undersea Lodge

The Jules Undersea Lodge in Key Largo Florida was just recently among the top ten most remote places to stay. When it comes to getting away from it all, this motel is true to that as it requires guests to scuba dive down twenty-one feet through a lagoon for entrance.

Forbes puts Jules Undersea Lodge among The World's Most Remote Hotels list they unveiled just recently. Most other undersea hotels require walking down to them somehow, but not Jules, which requires scuba diving to the former underwater research lab in Key Largo. Apparently the accomodations are pretty slick, although the amount of space for you and the rest of your group isn't too vast.

Other exclusive get away spots include Kokopelli's Cave just outside of Farmington, N.M., Arctic Hotel in Greenland, and The Garvault Hotel in the Scottish Highlands. If you want to get away might as well stay deep underground, embedded in ice, or as far away as possible from the rest of civilization.

The official website for Jules Undersea Lodge features a blueprint of the underwater motel including bedrooms, common room, and of course a "wet room." They offer several different packages for overnight stays which range from $375 to $475 per night. A stay includes all dive gear, a gourmet dinner prepared by the "mer-chef" and breakfast in the morning. The term "sleeping with the fishes" has a whole new meaning now!

Besides being pricey to stay at these places, they offer an isolation factor that most Hiltons, Best Westerns and Holiday Inns don't. Being completely underwater and able to look at the sea life, or 70 feet underground in a cave is definitely one way to get away from the rest of the world!

Looks like an illustration and inland lagoons in the keys can be quite green and nasty looking compared to the outer blue water.

The picture is from a resort called Poseidon.
