World's first refrigerated beach cools your toes

Recommended Posts


Dubai's new Palazzo Versace luxury hotel is going to be the first in the world to artificially cool the sand on its beach. A system of coolant-filled pipes buried under the sand will absorb heat. Working with giant fans that blow a cool, faux sea breeze, the system will do constant battle with the eggs-over-easy 122°F heat common in the Persian Gulf emirate. The plan, says hotel founder Soheil Abedian, is to keep the sand cool enough to lie on, adding that "this is the kind of luxury that top people want."

It isn't exactly the most environmentally friendly approach to luxury — you'd have to go to nearby Abu Dhabi for a greener lifestyle — but what did you expect from the country bringing you the world's largest fake wind turbine?

Isn't Dubai in a real estate crisis right now? But people still have this much money to lavishly spend to massively cool a beach? :crazy:
