Saw an interesting advertisement for an underwater hotel suite and this thought came to my mind.
** You put fish in an aquarium. Not humans. **
The average everyday person works hard and makes many sacrifices to save enough money to take that once in a lifetime perfect vacation. Let’s face it! You might stay in a hotel when you’re on vacation, but you won’t spend most your time in the hotel room!
There are a number of reasons I find an underwater hotel suite very disturbing.
No 1: What happens if there is a tsunami?
No 2: How quick could I get out in the event of an emergency?
No 3: No way the hotel owner could ever convince me it’s not dangerous.
No 4: No way I’m sleeping a room like that by myself; which, in my mind, would put another occupant in danger.
No 5: I can’t swim! Only an idiot who can’t swim would book a room in an underwater hotel!
The rooms and other parts of the hotels look luxuriously beautiful in the photographs.
That’s the only PRO I can think of. Sorry but everything else is a CON.

No way I’m going to sleep in a hotel room that’s underwater! Do you agree with my reasoning?
