Crystal Lagoons opens a new project in Ecuador8 June, 2022 / News
Ecuador is home to one of the 10 lagoons developed with Crystal Lagoons® sustainable technology that will open in Latin America in 2022, in countries such as Argentina, Mexico, Paraguay, Colombia and the Dominican Republic. Specifically in Ecuador, the multinational water innovation company is developing the Karibao Resort Town project, in Engabao, in association with Pronobis.
The project is a macro real estate development, whose central piece will be a 5-acre crystalline lagoon in the first stage and 2,5 acre additional in the second phase.
“Crystalline lagoons in real estate projects have proven to be very successful, even during the pandemic. In fact, globally speaking, there has been an unprecedented increase in sales of developments with lagoons powered by Crystal Lagoons® technology. Those have seen an increase of more than 200% in their value per square meter as well as other benefits,” said Jean Pierre Juanchich, Crystal Lagoons regional director for Latin America.
Currently, Crystal Lagoons has more than 1,000 projects worldwide at different stages of development and negotiation in 60 countries. After revolutionizing the real estate sector for 10 years, the firm began a new corporate stage, revolutionizing cities with Public Access Lagoons™ projects, also known as PAL™ projects.
PAL™ projects: Beach life everywhere
It is exactly these types of resorts, which do not form part of private development and which are open to the public for a fee, that Crystal Lagoons wants to develop in Ecuador. For that reason, it is choosing the best partners to promote these projects.
“There is a lot of potential in Ecuador for PAL™ projects. These resorts could transform the lives of millions of Ecuadorians by bringing a small piece of the ocean to their doorsteps both in coastal cities and inland areas of the country. This will prevent them from having to take a car or a plane to go to the beach, which will result in a reduction in their environmental impact,” said Juanchich.
The PAL™ developments are large crystalline lagoons surrounded by white sandy beaches and attractive spaces for fairs, launches, food halls, weddings, concerts on multiple beach stages, terraces, domes, gastronomy, retail outlets, amphitheaters and shows, making them the meeting point of the 21st century. In addition, thanks to Crystal Lagoons new Hot Reef™ technology, the bathing areas maintain a temperature of 28°C, providing low-cost and sustainable optimal conditions throughout the year.
