Mythological gods are thought to have arrived on earth through the stem of the lotus flower – and tomorrow’s visitors to Lotus Island will arrive via a graceful causeway. The lotus symbolizes peace and inclusiveness, and the narrative of inner peace and outer exploration begins with a heart of calm water punctuated by a fountain of dances, and surrounded by cultural amenities and a graceful esplanade that ends at a conference center and cruise terminal.
Visitors explore theme parks and sandy beaches, and residents chose from a variety of lifestyles. Each petal has a resort at its end and represents some aspect of adventure: Turbulence and its White Whale Hotel; Happiness and its Dolphin Hotel and Water Park; Health and its Sea Turtle Hotel and Wellness Center; Fantasy and its Sea Horse Hotel and Kid’s Theme Park; Romance and its Starfish Hotel and floating villas; Adventure and its Shark Hotel and Youth Theme Park; and Mystery and its Stingray Hotel accessible only by water taxi.
Visitors will also pass by celebrity islands and a LOHAS (Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability) low-carbon island, and another island that, along with a necklace of turbines, is dedicated to the harvesting of wave and wind energy. Forward-thinking design and the timeless values associated with the lotus will ensure Lotus Island of an enduring and iconic legacy.
