Karibao Resort Town will opening crystalline lagoon

The project developed in Ecuador by Crystal Lagoons in association with Pronobis, Karibao Resort Town, located in Engabao, is about to inaugurate its great attraction: the 5-acre crystalline lagoon developed with Crystal Lagoons® sustainable technology.

It is a macro real estate development, which also includes a second lagoon, of 2,5-acre, in the second phase of the complex. Thanks to the large body of turquoise water and white sand beaches, the residents of the project will experience the idyllic beach life and will be able to practice swimming and water sports in a safe environment.

Crystalline lagoons in real estate projects have proven to be very successful, even during the pandemic. In fact, globally speaking, there has been an unprecedented increase in sales of developments with lagoons powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology. Those have seen an increase of more than 200% in their value per square meter as well as other benefits,” said Jean Pierre Juanchich, Crystal Lagoons regional director for Latin America.

Currently, Crystal Lagoons has more than 1,000 projects worldwide at different stages of development and negotiation in 60 countries. After revolutionizing the real estate sector for 10 years, the firm began a new corporate stage, revolutionizing cities with Public Access Lagoons™ projects, also known as PAL™ projects.

PAL™ projects: Beach life everywhere

It is exactly these types of resorts, which do not form part of private development and which are open to the public for a fee, that Crystal Lagoons wants to develop in Ecuador. For that reason, it is choosing the best partners to promote these projects.

“There is a lot of potential in Ecuador for PAL™ projects. These resorts could transform the lives of millions of Ecuadorians by bringing a small piece of the ocean to their doorsteps both in coastal cities and inland areas of the country. This will prevent them from having to take a car or a plane to go to the beach, which will result in a reduction in their environmental impact,” said Juanchich.

The PAL™ developments are large crystalline lagoons surrounded by white sandy beaches and attractive spaces for fairs, launches, food halls, weddings, concerts on multiple beach stages, terraces, domes, gastronomy, retail outlets, amphitheaters and shows, making them the meeting point of the 21st century. In addition, thanks to Crystal Lagoons new Hot Reef™ technology, the bathing areas maintain a temperature of 28°C, providing low-cost and sustainable optimal conditions throughout the year.

Around the world, the concept and technology of Crystal Lagoons® have become the leading sales attraction, positively impacting its commercial success. Despite the credit and real estate challenges in the current economic conditions, Crystal Lagoons projects continue to defy the market with very impressive sales figures, particularly in the United States. The rankings from real estate consulting firms RCLCO and John Burns on the best-selling master-planned communities once again demonstrated that crystalline lagoons are a powerful purchasing driver. SunterraMiradaWindsong Ranch, and Epperson secured prominent positions in 2023.

These projects ranked among the top 50 best-selling communitiesFlorida leads the ranking within the list, representing close to 40% of the sales for all top-ranked developments, followed by Texas with 37%. In both states, Crystal Lagoons has a significant presence.

In Texas, Sunterra stands out as a project that, even though the crystalline lagoon has not been built yet, serves as a commercial driver within the community, generating sales rates higher than the average, with a significant increase of 63% compared to 2022. This placed it 3rd nationally in both rankings, further boosting the strong performance of Houston, the top-selling metropolitan area in the country. Sunterra’s positive sales results had already been recorded in previous reports.

With the largest amenity powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology in the United States, Mirada in Florida, inaugurated in 2023, sets another record. With an 89% increase in sales, it ranks 17th. Its 15 acres of turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are a buying trigger.

Another notable project in Texas is Windsong Ranch, which has consistently set sales records, ranking 29th in the John Burns ranking. The project has also been nationally awarded as “Master Planned Community of the Year,” among other recognitions.

On the other hand, Epperson in Florida also ranked prominently in both studies, a commercial trend registered since its inauguration as a real estate project. The interest it generated was so significant that it had to be opened to the Public Access Lagoons™ model, also known as PAL™ developments.

The United States is the main operation of Crystal Lagoons worldwide, and it has more than 275 projects at different stages of development and negotiation. Among the most important are Mirada, Sole Mia, Balmoral, Windsong Ranch, Beachwalk, Southshore Bay, Aqua, among others.

Memorial Day celebrations became unforgettable family events at the Lago Mar project, which has the largest crystalline lagoon in Texas powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology. This year, the monumental 12-acre artificial lagoon set the stage for a day filled with water activities, live music, and gastronomy, providing an idyllic beach environment to honor fallen heroes.”

Lago Mar, in the heart of Texas and developed under the Public Access Lagoons° model, also known as PAL° complexes, has made an unprecedented impact since its inception. This project has transformed the lifestyle thanks to Crystal Lagoons® technology, which has become the region’s epicenter of family entertainment, fun, and aquatic life.

The success of this initiative is undeniable. It has positioned Lagoonfest Texas as the preferred summer destination and set a record by hosting the most significant number of floating cabins in North America, totaling 22. Furthermore, it’s a project that experiences explosive visitation. Last year, the Lagoon welcomed over 80,000 visitors from all states.

The crystalline lagoon marks a milestone. It is equivalent to 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools, spans over half a kilometer from end to end, and offers white sandy beaches extending over a kilometer and a half. It is nearly six times larger than the first crystalline lagoon in that state, Balmoral. Crystal Lagoons developed both projects in association with Land Tejas
