Imagine having a bedroom window that glows deep green with light filtered through a mangrove lagoon, and stepping out of the main entrance of your hotel straight into a diving area of the most incredible biodiversity. Formerly a research laboratory, positioned for easy access to the edge of the continental shelf near the coast of Puerto Rico, Jules' Undersea Lodge now provides the most full-on diving holiday possible. If they so desire, guests can spend every day exploring the marine surroundings, and have unlimited access to air tanks and equipment. Parrotfish, barracuda and angelfish thrive in these warm waters and even the outer walls of the lodge itself are clothed in a living blanket of colourful anemones, shells and sponges.

Jules Undersea Lodge

The Jules Undersea Lodge is an ex-underwater research facility that has been converted into a hotel with two bedrooms, a common room and a kitchenette. In each room there is a large window from which you can observe the anemones, sponges, oysters and feather duster worms go about their everyday business, completely oblivious of your presence. The only thing is that to get to the hotel, you have to dive almost six and a half metres under the surface of the lagoon. For experienced scuba divers this is a real treat as once down in the hotel, the owners offer as much oxygen as you need for diving from the hotel and exploring the surrounding marine life. Beginners, however, will have to take a course at the accompanying diving centre before they can even check in.
