Construction is underway for a hotel resort that will be built into a 100 meter high rocky cave. Aesthetics and functionality of the superplex resort will include a waterfall pouring from a 19 story hotel, 400 rooms, conference facilities, floors submerged beneath water, and an underwater restaurant.


To help guests stay active, the complex will offer rock-climbing, bungee jumping, swimming and water sports.


Designed by architecture firm Atkins, the facility will also utilize geothermal technology to generate electricity and lighting.
