Crystal Lagoons develops project in Indonesia27 October, 2014 / News
Crystal Lagoons Corp., the patented technology developer of giant crystalline lagoons, is expanding its global presence in key South-East Asia markets with the Q4 2014 development of a 6.3-hectare project on the Indonesian island of Bintan.
Located at the heart of the Treasure Bay Bintan project, which is currently under development by leading Singaporean developer Landmarks Berhad, the 338-hectare mixed-use community will feature a sparkling crystalline lagoon as the leisure centerpiece of its Southern Precinct district.
The Southern Precinct will be home to a collection of hotels, restaurants, leisure clubs and retail destinations. They will all be sited around the 6.3-hectare lagoon and complementing the high-end Northern Precinct, home to spa facilities by US operator Canyon Ranch and a varied entertainment and leisure offering.
“This will be a first-of-its-kind tourism project not only for Indonesia, but for South-East Asia, and with infrastructure investment and the tourism dollar supporting economic growth in key regional markets, we add further value to the tourism proposition of a destination through the application of our revolutionary technology in order to create unique leisure-centric destinations that appeal to a global audience,” said Kevin P Morgan, CEO, Crystal Lagoons.
Crystal Lagoons will also incorporate a number of interactive attractions within its crystalline water playground to provide a diverse range of experiences for keen water sport enthusiasts and families alike.
“As well as being a cost-effective build and operational model that enables tourism destinations to work towards meeting long term sustainability goals, it is important that we also continue to evolve the product and deliver on our ‘high quality fun’ promise. Our Treasure Bay Bintan lagoon will also offer two thrilling adrenaline-fuelled activities with a bungee jumping platform and cable water ski facility,” remarked Morgan.
