The Age of the Aquarium

The Age of the Aquarium

A freshwater aquarium in multiple levels throughout our tropical garden connects the restaurant with the leisure room.

The water of the 15 meter long pond holds almost 500 fishes of various species.

The highest level, a 2 meters high platform constructed above the heating installation of the building, features a series of small artificial islands we refer to as “Little Dubai”. They are made of concrete and topped with a layer of beach sand.

Our guests now can hop from island to island until they reach one of those onto which we attached rotary design seats. This makes for a unique sitting corner.

Having a drink on a high level island, while your feet are getting a foot spa treatment by hundreds of small fish sipping on your toes and heels, you’re surrounded by tropical birds and plants, ambient reflections of subtle lighting, and the caustics and acoustics of water are all around you…

If you ever get any closer to complete relaxation, there’s probably no coming back.
