The multinational water innovation company, Crystal Lagoons® currently revolutionizing the entertainment industry with its Public Access Lagoons™, also known as PAL™, first began building amenities in the real estate world, forever changing the paradigm of “location, location, location”. One of the firm’s most emblematic projects, San Alfonso del Mar, in Chile continues to capture the attention of international press, on this occasion The Irish Examiner.
The firm has developed and patented state-of-the-art technology that allows crystalline lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at low costs, offering an idyllic beach lifestyle anywhere in the world. This pioneering concept led the firm to the San Alfonso del Mar lagoon being certified as the Guinness World Record as the largest crystalline lagoon on the planet, a title that it kept until another lagoon by the company, in Egypt (Sharm El Sheik) took the award. It is currently the largest crystalline lagoon in the world.
The San Alfonso del Mar project includes a 20-acre crystalline lagoon, equivalent to 6,000 traditional pools, made possible only thanks to the technology created by the company, which has been patented in more than 190 countries. According to the Irish Examiner, this lagoon is ideal for water sports fanatics.
The most important advantages offered by Crystal Lagoons technology are its low construction and maintenance costs, the use of any type of water source and its low water consumption.
The sustainable technology developed and patented by Crystal Lagoons has become the “world’s top amenity” and has improved the lives of millions of people around the world.
The extraordinary advantages offered by this technology, its low construction and maintenance costs and its sustainable properties, have allowed Crystal Lagoons today to have a portfolio of more than 600 projects in different stages of operation, planning, design and construction in more than 60 countries.
The construction costs of a lagoon with Crystal Lagoons technology are very low, even lower than those of a park of the same size. Furthermore, the operating costs are very low, due to the efficient use of additives and energy. This revolutionary technology also stands out for its low water consumption, since it operates in a closed circuit, and it only needs to replace the water that is lost through evaporation. In comparison, a 1-hectare lagoon consumes only 50% of the water required to maintain a park of the same size, and an average-sized lagoon consumes about 30 times less than a golf course.
