One of the world’s top tourist destinations, Phuket, in Thailand, has a new attraction. It consists of the first amenity in Asia to function under the Public Access Lagoons™ business model, also known as PAL™, which can be found at Blue Tree Phuket.
Sanook website highlighted the project, writing an extensive piece on it. The publication points out Crystal Lagoons® technology that powers the 4-acre lagoon, surrounded by white sand beaches, water based games for children and adrenalin-rushing activities for adults, including a Slip N Fly, a water slide, cliff jumping & rock climbing and splash zones.
“This is a beautiful water park. The 17.000 square meters of pure, turquoise waters contrast with the floating white clouds in the sky. You can just sit and relax, enjoy the atmosphere, and fill your holidays with joy,” reads the article.
According to Michael Ayling, Director at Blue Tree Phuket, “the tourism market in Phuket has changed over the course of the last 10 years. Today we are seeing a high demand for attractions located far from the coast that are of interest of local Thai families.”
Thanks to the crystalline lagoon, Blue Tree Phuket is set to receive 1.5 million visitors in its first year, mainly from China, Russia, Australia, Germany, South Korea and France, adding to the 38 million tourists that Thailand receives every year.
Cristián Lehuedé, Director Executive at Crystal Lagoons, explains that “having revolutionized the real-estate sector for 10 years, the company has expanded into the new phase with Public Access Lagoons™ projects, revolutionizing cities with projects that require low investment and maintenance costs, provide short term return on investments and that can be intensively used. In fact, they represent 80% of the firm’s contracts as they can develop urban hubs that can be converted into the meeting point of the XXI century.”
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
