Crystal-clear lagoon is the star attraction at Treasure Bay Bintan, Indonesia9 August, 2017 / News
A 6.3 hectare crystal-clear lagoon forms the star attraction of Indonesia’s Treasure Bay Bintan Resort, the $3 billion tourist destination completed in 2015.
Developed by multinational water-innovation company, Crystal Lagoons, in partnership with Singapore’s Landmarks Berhad, the project offers guests the first and largest recreational clear-water body in South East Asia.
With golf courses becoming less popular, developers are looking for ways to reuse the land to create more appealing features, and water holds an irresistible attraction for every demographic and age.
“Crystal-clear lagoons can be established at a very low cost and the technology we have developed delivers crystal clear water using salt, brackish or fresh water using a fraction of the chemicals required by traditional pool filtration systems,” said Crystal Lagoons Oceania Director Germán Rocca. “Importantly they have proven to be a powerful marketing tool and led to increased premiums and densities.”
Crystal-clear lagoons use up to 100 times fewer chemical products and require just 2 per cent of the energy of conventional filtration technologies. They also consume half the fresh water of a park and up to 30 times less fresh water than a golf course.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
