The centerpiece of a stunning five acre dive and snorkel tourism Lost World off the coast of Dubai is The Pearl of Dubai. Individual artificial reef sculptures are set with cast bronze elements adding a unique facet to artificial reef design for tourism. Overall site design includes a main temple that doubles as a dive training area, snorkel reefs incorporating artificial reef habitat for declining Hamour (Ephinephelus chlorostigma) in the region, in partnership with Abu Dhabi.

Projected completion date 2020.

Artificial resort tourism reef design for our ongoing resort hotel project, Gods of the Maya. Our client has a denuded house reef in front of their 500 room hotel and needs a new and exciting revenue center for their hotel guests. This property also works with cruise lines and has periodic beach congestion. We designed three separate dive training centers within the resort site for additional revenue streams and two snorkel trails. Natural reef enhancements are made throughout the project with the addition of an orphan coral transplant program and artificial reef coral farm paid for by enhanced revenues from the site.

Projected completion date late 2018.

Admittedly, not an artificial reef but one of our biggest design projects of 2016. The challenge we faced was in designing a Lost World inside an aquarium filled with sharks and rays. We envisioned a space that also doubles as a broadcast center for the Qatar World Cup in 2022. Design began at the central broadcast hub underwater and encompassed both a wet environment for divers and scuba enthusiasts in the aquarium and dry environment inside.

Pushing the boundaries of interactive spaces for tourism is a hallmark of this project concept. Aquarium interactivity is just beginning to realize its full potential. Land based mega aquariums can divert tourism from coastlines, after all why would a guest want to fly 3000 miles to scuba, when a more interactive and exciting themed choice is a just short drive away?

Project in design for 2018.

Shark Research Center


Conservation and education inspired tourism with sharks

Our latest and most innovative client project yet features a solar and wind powered shark research and education center for resort hotels. Our completely unique client design transforms unused waterfront space allowing guests to interact safely with enclosed shark species while providing ongoing shark research. 

The Shark Research Center is branded and integrated with the resort property and adheres to best animal husbandry and environmental standards. Periodically released animals are tracked with satellite tags. Real-time tracking data is made available to shark researchers and hotel guests via unique smartphone app design, creating a proprietary level of interactivity and shark education awareness with your valued guests.

The Shark Research Center offers a viable alternative to cetacean encounter spaces and offers both a high revenue return for our resort clients along with a uniquely designed education and research base for regional NGO/Marine partnerships. Sharks as apex predators showcase the health of reef systems and are amazing ambassadors for education and awareness. 

Resort design trends are continuing to evolve, with a focus on making the most out of spaces to optimize every inch of footage in a way that exceeds the needs of your guests. Reef Worlds creates a stage where guests can act out their vacations. 

Discover our shark encounter expertise, then imagine an underwater Lost City on your property....populated with sharks.

Let's build the ultimate tourism experience together!
