Safe swimmable crystalline lagoon will be centerpiece of The Resort at Diamante
Diamante Cabo San Lucas (Diamante), a 1,500 acre private oceanfront community with 1.5 miles of Pacific coastline has announced plans to build an 11-plus acre swimmable salt-water lagoon.
The lagoon will be designed by Crystal Lagoons, a company with a patented technology that allows them to build crystal clear lagoons of unlimited size anywhere in the world.
The work on the Lagoon has already begun and the entire construction process is expected to be completed within a year. The lagoon will be the central feature of The Resort at Diamante and will include private beach cabanas, expansive beach areas and several waterfront Vacation Club residences. The Resort will encompass 80 acres of the 1500 acre property and will also offer a state-of-the-art Health Club and Spa facility, a beach club, a palapa bar, and a village complex with retail stores and restaurants. The Resort will also include a series of family-friendly amenities including a kid’s camp, arcade, water-park and water-based activity center and a walking, running and biking trail.
“Crystal Lagoons is an innovative company with a great-track record of developing large, clean, and safe swimmable lagoons at top resorts around the world,” said Diamante CEO Ken Jowdy. “Creating a unique recreational family lagoon as a complement to our spectacular oceanfront and dunes will heighten the Diamante experience,” said Jowdy.
Water sports like sailing, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking will also be part of the recreational lagoon activities.
The technology created by Crystal Lagoons (patented in more than 160 countries), allows them to use significantly less chemicals and energy compared to traditional pool systems and enables them to maintain and construct crystal clear lagoons of unlimited size with very low construction and maintenance costs. Currently, Crystal Lagoons has 180 lagoon projects in 45 countries on five continents.
“Diamante is a perfect setting for one of our renowned lagoons, as the lagoon will enhance the tropical beach environment at Diamante by adding an incredible recreational amenity to the Resort,” said Felipe Pascual, Commercial Director of Crystal Lagoons.
Pascual stated that with conventional pool technologies, crystalline lagoons of this size are neither technologically nor economically viable.
“It’s clear that the Diamante team is focused on finding amenities that are environmentally friendly,” said Pascual. “Our proven technology and process will allow Diamante to create a lagoon that will enhance the environment and be economically feasible,” he said.
Surrounding the lagoon at the Resort will be multiple two bedroom/three bath units and nine Bungalows with four bedrooms/four and a half baths. Owners and their guests will also have access to a new championship Resort golf course with construction planned to start in the fall of 2012. The Resort course will complement Diamante’s first course, Diamante Dunes, which is ranked #58 in the world by Golf Magazine.
