Atlantis, The Palm
Top 10 Hotel Aquariums
Pacific Beach Hotel, Honolulu
Size of Aquarium: 280,000 gallons, 3 stories tall
Notable Features: Largest indoor hotel aquarium of its kind; Snuba experience for visitors
A bit of a trendsetter in the hotel aquarium category – this water wonder was constructed in 1979 – the Pacific Beach Hotel’s three-story Oceanarium still wows with over 400 fish comprising more than 70 types of Indo-Pacific marine life, from stingrays to longnose butterflyfish. A major draw here is Snuba, a combination of snorkeling and scuba diving. While comfortably breathing through a mouthpiece regulator, divers descend to a depth of 20 feet to explore the Oceanarium – no certification required! If you’d rather stay dry and observe from outside the tank, consider the Oceanarium restaurant, featuring some of the best views of the aquarium and a delectable mix of surf and turf options. www.pacificbeachhotel.com
