There’s reason why I live near the sea. I love the water, the sand, the sun, and yes, the seafood. I also have deep appreciation for fine art and craftsmanship. So when the newest hotel in our collection – Royal Blues Hotel, in Deerfield Beach, Florida – married a stunning saltwater aquarium with artful décor – I was over-the-moon excited. The aquarium is mounted above the heads of Chanson Restaurant’s diners and also visible to swimmers outside in the hotel’s terrace pool.
Creating – and installing – this aquatic art form was no small feat, as witnessed tonight (October 31), on the popular TV show, Tanked. A synopsis of the show: “Wayde and Brett head to the Royal Blues Hotel in Florida to build a 1,500 gallon tank into the restaurant ceiling that would also be visible from the pool.” The show airs at 10 p.m. on Animal Planet. Perfect non-scary viewing this Halloween night.
