Jules Undersea Lodge - Dive into Luxury
You go all over the world to travel and have different experiences. The norm would be to stay in the hotel, and then travel out to experience your holiday. What if even your stay in a hotel itself was a unique experience?
You go all over the world to travel and have different experiences. The norm would be to stay in the hotel, and then travel out to experience your holiday. What if even your stay in a hotel itself was a unique experience? This would mean every second of your holiday, is experienced to the fullest. This is where the Jules Undersea Lodge comes to serve you.
When guests visit Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida, they discover that the name is no marketing gimmick. Just to enter the Lodge, one must actually scuba dive 21 feet beneath the surface of the sea. Jules’ really is underwater. Diving through the tropical mangrove habitat of the Emerald Lagoon and approaching the world’s only underwater hotel is quite an experience. Even from the outside, Jules’ big 42 inch round windows cast a warm invitation to come in and stay a while, relax and get to know the underwater world that so few of us have even visited.

The mangrove lagoon in which Jules’ is located is a natural nursery area for many reef fish. Tropical angelfish, parrotfish, barracuda, and snappers peek in the windows of the habitat, while anemones, sponges, oysters and feather duster worms seem to cover every inch of this underwater world. Guests of the Lodge explore their marine environment with scuba gear provided by Jules’ Undersea Lodge and are given an unlimited supply of tanks.
Guests sometimes describe their visit to inner space as the most incredible experience of their lives. One couple decided on a career change after visiting Jules’ Undersea Lodge, and they now operate Aquanauts’ Dive Shop. Another couple named their baby after Jules’, when they later discovered their recently conceived child had accompanied them in their wonderful adventure in undersea living. Who knows what may be in store for you.

The entire structure of Jules Undersea Lodge is underwater, sitting up on legs approximately five feet off the bottom of the protected lagoon. The Lodge is filled with compressed air, which prevents the water from rising and flooding the rooms. A five by seven foot “moon pool” entrance in the floor of the building makes entering the hotel much like surfacing through a small swimming pool.
Divers find themselves in the wet room, the center of three compartments that make up the underwater living quarters. The wet room, as the name implies, is where divers leave their gear, enjoy a quick hot shower and towel-off before entering the rest of the living area.
Waking up to view a pair of angelfish looking in your bedroom window is a moment you’ll never forget…
Designed for comfort, the air-conditioned living space has two private bedrooms and a common room. The eight by twenty foot common room is a multi-purpose room providing the galley, dining and entertainment areas. But the main focus of attention is the big 42 inch round window that graces each room. Waking up to view a pair of angelfish looking in your bedroom window is a moment you’ll never forget.
Although the experience of a habitat saturation dive is definitely high tech diving, even guests who have never scuba dived before can stay in Jules’ Undersea Lodge. A pleasant three-hour class acquaints non-certified divers with the equipment and simple procedures necessary to comfortably dive in the company of the Lodge’s dive instructors. The Lodge also offers complete dive certification in just three days, as well as a full complement of advanced and specialty dive training.
The staff of Jules’ Undersea Lodge remains on duty 24 hours a day to provide whatever services the quests may need. The Lodge’s luxury packages include the services of a “mer-chef” who scuba dives down to the hotel to prepare and serve a gourmet dinner for the guests. Late night snacks can even include the underwater delivery of a pizza from a local shop.
Jules’ Undersea Lodge has been featured on “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous”, in “Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Issue”, in countless magazines and newspapers, and on every major television network in the world.
For the first time in history an authentic underwater research habitat is open to the average person–sport divers and even those who have never before dived.
