Unique Aquarium – Hotel creates Hi-Tech aquariums


Is this a hotel you would like to stay in? A five star luxury hotel with three large Hi-Tech aquariums – two in the lobby and one in the seafood restaurant where 4000 fish are housed, from clownfish to sharks.

The Hotel Burj Al Arab is already considered one of the most luxurious hotels in the world. It has added to its renowned reputation by improving and recently renovating it’s aquariums. A recent article by Trade Arabia discussed the changes done to the aquarium and the technology and manpower that stands behind it:

The recently re-opened aquarium also boasts of some of the most technically advanced underwater lighting, new artificial coral reefs and improved filtration systems.

The fish tanks at the Dubai hotel are a captivating attraction for both guests and local visitors, with the resident marine biologists being highly commended for their great efforts in looking after its stock.

Going beyond the standards usually found in commercial aquariums, Burj Al Arab has its own aquatic quarantine facilities, ensuring the fish were kept in a perfect condition during the three-month refurbishment.

The amazing structure of the hotel in Dubai is made to look like a sail and includes all the amenities that a well heeled guest could ever want or demand.  Such services include private butlers, access to the fleet of Rolls Royce vehicles and a reception desk on every floor so you don’t need to make much effort to get service.

These Hi Tech Aquariums House lots of species

The aquariums are designed to look like natural reefs, but the construction materials of these Hi-tech aquariums were all artificial so no reef systems were damaged during the construction.

“No live coral was used in the tank and the habitat was created to imitate natural coral reefs,” he stated.

The ultimate undersea habitat for over 4,000 fish, such as Zebra and Bamboo sharks, Clown Fish, as well as Yellow and Blue Tang, was created by Pangea Rocks in close collaboration with the aquarists’ team to finalise the project.

It took months to refurbish these High tech aquariums with their new look, and it seems the response to the efforts has been well worth it.
