The entire lower suite was built on land in Singapore, fittingly made of acrylic from Japan’s premiere aquarium manufacturer Nippura Co., and sealed with Shin Etsu Marine sealant. It was then submerged into the ocean and held firmly in place by 10 concrete piles that ensure it will not move or shift due to a high tide or rough seas.
A dark curtain was also custom-made to enable complete black-out – a feature that Saleem described as one of the most challenging aspects of the project. The team also included a fire escape, which acts as a marker of the room above water, and a panic button that triggers a signal at the main resort.
