The only representation of this concept is located in Lake Malaren near the town of Vasteras in Sweden. From the shores of Lake Malaren, the Utter Inn appears like a bright red gardening shack stuck improbably in the middle of the lake. The visible section includes a kitchenette and a little dining area surrounded by an outdoor terrace.

1) Jules’ Undersea Lodge (Florida)

This American hotel is located in Key Largo, Florida. It is truly an innovative concept. It is the only underwater hotel in the United States of America. It is 30 feet deep on the ocean floor.

The hotel is named after the famous novelist Jules Verne, who authored 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. Scuba certification is required for entrance as the front door of the hotel is located 6.4 meters under water.

The hotel also offers a scuba diving school. Visitors who are not certified divers will have to go through a three hours crash course. The facility was originally built in the early 1970s as a groundbreaking research lab off the coast of Puerto Rico.

Many celebrities like John Fishman of Phish, former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Steve Taylor of Aerosmith have enjoyed their stay in this hotel.
