Cave Hotel Built In An Abandoned Chinese Quarry [Pics]
Slated to open in Shanghai in 2015, the building will include an extreme-sports facility, underwater restaurant, and be powered by geothermal electricity technology.
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.
