Where else but in Dubai will we see the first refrigerated Beach! For the super rich , sun worshipping will become a more comfortable experience as building gets underway for the first cool strip of sunbathing paradise. This revolutionary new beach will include a system of heat absorbing pipes built under the sand that will suck out the intense heat and giant fans designed to keep tourists cool as cucumbers in the usual 40 - 50C Dubai weather. This cool beach will keep their pedicured tootsies from burning in the normally hot scalding sand and will border the new Palazzo Versace Hotel.
The hotel, which is due to open late next year or early 2010, will be controlled by thermostats linked up to computers and feature a cooled swimming pool also. While the plans have been criticized by green groups who are infuriated by the potential impact on climate change, money speaks and when these richos demand a luxury lifestyle, they get what they want - even if its at the expense of the earths environment.
Still, a refrigerated beach? I think the concept is JUST COOL!
