Tropical Islands Resort. The largest indoor tropical pool in the world, located in Krausnick, Germany. (Opened in 2004). Cargolifter-Werfthalle, the former airship hanger holds 55 million cubic meters of indoor space.
As we saw in the last post… artificial waves, a yellow Lamborghini and about a dozen Russian supermodels running around at Al Ain Surf Park Wadi Adventure. In the middle of the UAE desert, we find “Paradise”. A mash-up of environment, color, nature and exoticism. The word is built of two extremes pushed against one another. Whether this manifests as a pristine tropical pool hidden between sand dunes, or equally, a sand dune standing alone in the middle of a pristine tropical ocean (palm trees in tow). Today, this concept of “paradise” appears to be popularly man-made. Something where nature appears indoors, and exists as a playground plopped within a suspiciously familiar landscape. If we’re already constructing and accepting our own escape, does that mean there is nothing left to explore?
