California: Following its success in Dubai, the Los Angeles based Dynamic Reef developer, Reef Worlds, are reported to be interested in building underwater tourism and new sustainable habitat sites in Oman.
According to a recent report in Abu Dhabi media, "coral content in Arabian Gulf reefs has declined by up to 50 per cent, posing a threat to fish stocks and marine habitats."
The underwater tourism design company will be considering a completely revolutionary tourism site for Oman, designed to capture the $3 billion dive and tourism market.
The site would be created to look like an ancient Lost City and can quickly become a focus for dive and snorkel tourism and habitat creation in the region.
European and US clientele
"Oman needs to attract underwater tourism to the region. Dynamic Reefs are designed for both tourism and the environment; this is how you attract valued European and US clientele," Dave Taylor told reporters.
Reef Worlds has plans to expand across the world with forward thinking waterfront resort developers from Dubai to the Philippines in places where tourism and regional habitat could get a boost.
"The Reef Worlds brand is all about sustainability and the creation of new habitat while at the same time adding instant tourism revenue and excitement to waterfront resorts," said Dave Taylor, who is a Director of Development for Reef Worlds.
"We will work with carefully selected resort partners on unique underwater habitat projects that directly support our clients' sustainability and revenue goals," Taylor added.
It's an open secret in the waterfront resort community that over the past 40 years, resorts have considered little beyond the high tide mark. With the help of Reef Worlds design teams, they are rediscovering acres of property, client engagement, and new sources of revenue. At the intersection of art, science, and the environment is Reef Worlds. When a unique team of film and television designers, dive site developers, and marine biologists came together, they dreamt of a better way to experience the undersea realm. The result was Reef Worlds.
