Get Your Kicks from Textured Iridescent Surfaces? Give Me a Break

From a July 26 press release: "Jade Mountain, St Lucia has just announced that, for the first time, it is now possible for guests to experience their first taste of scuba diving within the privacy of their own sanctuaries with private infinity pools. In suite divers will be provided with custom made, rubber protected tanks to enable them to be taken into these sublime pools surfaced entirely in one-of-a-kind glass tiles, specifically designed for Jade Mountain.

"The pools' textured iridescent surface creates a magical underwater environment that lulls divers into a state of relaxation and introduces guests to the charm of diving gently. Our new in suite diving at Jade Mountain is the ultimate beginner experience. It allows guests to sample the serenity that comes with deep water diving and the thrill of being under water surrounded by no one else but your trusty instructor, without even leaving your sanctuary. . . .a trained scuba diving instructor comes directly to the guest's sanctuary to guide clients through the basics of diving, with a step by step program carried out from the comfort of their very own private pool."

The release doesn't say whether a PADI certification will be offered.
