“Texas’ largest crystalline lagoon makes a splash with new floating cabanas”. This is the title of the article published by the Houston Culturemap portal and which was one of the most-read stories of the year.
And it is that the Crystal Lagoons amenities always attract attention and this time the new floating cabanas that were implemented in the lagoon at Lago Mar project in Texas captured the readers of Houston Culturemap.
According to the editor, “As we look back at the most-read stories of 2021, we can see how eager readers were to get away. After months and months of staying home, Dallasites were ready to get vaxxed up and jet off to someplace spectacular as a sparkling lagoon”.
The crystalline lagoon at Lago Mar is the longest Crystal Lagoons amenity in the United States with 12-acre of pure turquoise water. It spans more than a quarter mile from end to end and has more than a mile of shoreline.
This crystalline lagoon has been enormously successful, even in these Covid times. The project sells around US$ 50,000 in tickets daily. Despite health safety measures, and even with restricted access and reduced capacity, it receives 1,200 visitors, and tickets sell out weeks in advance. The number of visitors is expected to increase exponentially with the new Hot Reef™ and dome technology.
The United States is currently the main market for Crystal Lagoons® globally, with 221 projects in different development and negotiation stages, and Texas is the “star” state, with 70 projects, whose highlights include Windsong Ranch, Balmoral and Leander Springs.
This state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly technology, used to power both lagoons, requires up to 100 times less chemicals than conventional swimming pool or drinking water treatment technologies, and consume only 2% of the energy needed by conventional swimming pool filtration systems.
The construction costs for a lagoon with Crystal Lagoons technology are very low, even lower than those of a park of the same size. Operating costs are also very low, due to the efficient use of safe additives and energy, with a 1-hectare lagoon consuming just 50% of the water required for a park of the same size. An average lagoon consumes approximately 30 times less than a golf course.
