Crystal Lagoons® Reveals Major Project Steps from Disney World, Orlando

***The complex, which will feature Orlando’s first Conrad hotel, reinforces the presence of the multinational innovation company in the hospitality industry.

More than 10,000 rooms will surround the lagoon powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology anchoring the new project that the multinational innovation company is developing in the United States. The location will be developed just steps from Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort, in the heart of Orlando, the nation’s most visited destination with 75 million tourists a year.

The resort will be transformed into one of Florida’s biggest tourism projects, changing the paradigm of vacation developments offering world-class resort and hotel standards, while consolidating Crystal Lagoons presence in the hospitality and entertainment industry. Although Orlando already possesses all kinds of infrastructure imaginable, it does not offer an idyllic beach life, which can be resolved by the multinational innovation company’s technology and concept.

Known as Evermore Orlando Resort, the project will be anchored by an immense crystalline lagoon, extensive beaches and Orlando’s first Conrad hotel (Hilton’s luxury brand), with 433 rooms. In addition, there will be a varied offer of houses, villas and apartments. The complex will feature an 18-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, one of the world’s best golfers. The first phase of the project will open in 2023.

“Crystal Lagoons offers a new standard for tourism and entertainment with extremely attractive returns. This has been identified by the hotel sector, when verifying that when a beach is incorporated in inland areas, its rates increase by up to 200% compared to hotels without bodies of water. Hilton, one of the main hotel chains, understood it that way and decided to make a qualitative leap compared to the existing offer in one of the most touristic areas in the US and the world”, explains Ivan Manzur, Senior VP of Sales, Crystal Lagoons US Corp. of Crystal Lagoons US.

Currently, the United States is the main market for Crystal Lagoons operations with more than 221 projects in different stages of development and negotiation, among which are Sole Mia, Balmoral, Windsong Ranch, Lake Nona, Section 31, Southshore Bay, Mirada, Avenir, Sierra Vista. In addition, the company is expanding its successful Public Access Lagoons™ projects offering ticketed-entry, also known as PAL™ projects, in Florida and Texas, and important master agreements such as the one signed with Epic for 16 developments in different geographical areas.

“We are holding advanced negotiations with investment funds and leading malls in Florida, California, South and North Carolina, Texas, Arizona and Oklahoma for additional master agreements, which now represent 90% of the firm’s contracts,” adds Manzur.

PAL projects become the most beautiful places in the city. There are models with more or less infrastructure and the most complete ones have spaces for roadshows, launches, food-halls, weddings, and even concerts that can be set-up on beaches, terraces, under domes, as well as an array of cuisines, retail, amphitheaters and shows.

Several international media highlighted that the hotel sector is undergoing a real transformation thanks to the incorporation of innovative technologies. One of the technologies highlighted was precisely Crystal Lagoons, in parallel with process automation and artificial intelligence.

The sustainability of the multinational innovation company was key to being considered within these trends. “Currently, many travelers are seeking accommodations that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. Places like the AVA Resort Cancun, with its artificial lagoon of crystal-clear waters powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology, are examples of accommodations that stand out for their commitment to sustainability,” explains the Spanish portal 24 Matins.

The turquoise-colored body of water provides ideal conditions for sailing, swimming, kayaking, or relaxing, and thanks to state-of-the-art technology, it consumes 33 times less water than an 18-hole golf course, 40% less water than a park of the same size, and only 2% of the energy of a conventional pool.

After transforming the real estate industry and the urban entertainment landscape with its innovative Public Access Lagoons™ projects, the multinational innovation company is now generating a new revolution, this time in the hotel sector.

Recognizing the transformative value of Crystal Lagoons® technology, leading global hotel chains such as Marriott, Radisson, Conrad, Hyatt Regency, and AVA Resort itself, have incorporated this amenity as a centerpiece in their projects.

“Every hotel project incorporating a Crystal Lagoons amenity becomes the most attractive destination in the area. These bodies of water change the paradigm of vacation developments with world-class hotel and resort standards”, explains Iván Manzur, Senior Vice President of Sales at Crystal Lagoons US Corp.

The multinational water innovation company already has developments of this kind, in which crystalline lagoons are the differentiating factor in the United States, Mexico, Indonesia, Romania, and Uruguay, among other countries.

“The crystalline lagoons achieve unprecedented results, such as bringing a beach lifestyle to Orlando—an entertainment option it didn’t have—or, counterintuitively, replacing the sea in iconic tourist destinations like Cancun,” emphasizes Jean Pierre Juanchich, Global Business Director of Crystal Lagoons.

The Crystal Lagoons project in Thailand, Blue Tree, located in the heart of Phuket, just 4 kilometers from the coast, has recently inaugurated the Beach Club MuMu Clubhouse, a new landmark in this iconic tourist destination, adding even more fun and entertainment. This new space becomes a meeting point in the surroundings of Phuket’s largest artificial lagoon and the first in Asia under the innovative Public Access Lagoons™ model, globally recognized as a “must-visit” in the region.

This PAL™ development with Crystal Lagoons® technology has set a new standard in public meeting and entertainment spaces, establishing itself as the top amenity in Thailand. With 4.2 acres of turquoise water oasis, surrounded by white sandy beaches, a private peninsula, restaurants, and a poolside bar, it offers the perfect setting to enjoy a dynamic beach experience 24 hours a day and a calendar full of activities throughout the year.

During the day, the Beach Club offers a relaxed atmosphere where visitors can enjoy various gastronomic offerings, art, culture, and activities, from beach yoga to water sports. The place comes alive at night with nightclubs, special events, concerts, and themed parties featuring live music, special guests, and renowned DJs.

Crystal Lagoons PAL™ projects are transforming and enriching urban life by offering new entertainment destinations not limited exclusively to residents of private real estate developments with crystalline lagoons. These developments are positively impacting the lives of millions of people, bringing a piece of the ocean to the city center and making it accessible just steps from their homes.

The monumental crystalline lagoons with Crystal Lagoons® technology have established themselves as the most attractive and esteemed amenity worldwide. Not only are they year-round entertainment centers, but they also stand out for their aesthetic value and contribution to landscape architecture. Their design harmoniously integrates with the natural environment, becoming a distinctive element that enhances the visual quality and experience of the project.

These bodies of water offer multifunctional recreational spaces, with trails, resting areas, playgrounds, and access to water activities. With over 125 activities in the lagoon and its surroundings, they become ideal venues to host various events, including large-scale ones like Aquathlons.

An example is the iconic tourist destination of Phuket, Thailand, which welcomes over 38 million visitors worldwide each year. Here, the Crystal Lagoons project Blue Tree, showcasing the first crystalline lagoon developed under the Public Access Lagoons™ model in Asia, has established itself as the new entertainment hub in the region and is a magnet for hosting world-class events, concerts, and themed parties, offering a variety of experiences for all lifestyles, from water slides to water parks. Recently, it was the venue for the country’s beauty pageant, Miss Thailand.

This PAL™ development is the jewel of the Blue Tree project. It spans 4.2 acres, is surrounded by white sandy beaches, and features a private peninsula, restaurants, and a pool bar. It is a massive recreational area with turquoise waters under the concept of an entertaining beach. Among the activities offered are Slip N Fly, water slides, Cliff Jumping & Rock Climbing, splash zones, and a water playground for adults and children.
