Crystal Lagoons (Will Soon) Bring the Beach lifestyle to Orlando

Crystal Lagoons, the multinational water innovation company that has taken Caribbean beach life to places all over the world, will now bring turquoise waters, white sand beaches and aquatic sports to Orlando. As announced by Iván Manzur, Crystal Lagoons Corporate Senior VP of Sales, a master agreement has been consolidated between the company and renowned hospitality asset manager ADËLON Capital for the development of at least five PAL™ (Public Access Lagoons™) projects, accessible to the public through a ticket.

Named the “World’s Top Amenity,” Crystal Lagoons® offers fun and safe environments for swimming and water sports. The turquoise, Caribbean-style lagoons will open across Orlando, in Lake, Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Sumter Counties, and be accessible to the public. (Credit: Crystal Lagoons)

The first project is expected to open as early as 2023 and all PAL complexes planned for Orlando will not only offer idyllic beach life and entertainment, but also hotels, multifamily developments, stores, restaurants, wedding areas, conferences, concerts and many more. The developments will be located across Orlando, in Lake, Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Sumter Counties.

“This important partnership with such a respected developer represents a new landmark for Crystal Lagoons® in a region that is ideal for our globally known lagoons. We chose Orlando because we believe this iconic central Florida city can be revolutionized by our crystalline waters, which have been lauded in the press as being at the ‘helm’ of the amenity craze,” Manzur said. “This agreement confirms that PAL projects are the future of our business. Investors are interested because of their cost effectiveness, safety, low risk and stability facing health and economic concerns brought by Covid,” added Manzur.

Jonathan Cohen, ADËLON Capital founder and co-chairman remarks, “We are very happy with our strategic alliance with Crystal Lagoons, one of the world’s most innovative companies. With their technology, we will bring Orlando the only thing it is lacking: a beach lifestyle.”

Named the “World’s Top Amenity,” Crystal Lagoons offers fun and safe environments for swimming and water sports, such as paddle boarding, kayaking and sailing.
