Transcending mere landscaping, the design of artificial lagoons and lakes in a tourist resort or real estate development is something that enhances the surroundings and can accommodate a wide range of activities. These additions increase the value of urban spaces, tourist resorts and any large real estate development by adding a natural element that accentuates architectural beauty.

Not only do artificial lakes and lagoons provide an idyllic place to swim, but water sports like kayaking, rowing and even sailing in small recreational boats are usually possible on these large-scale bodies of water.

What is the difference between an artificial lake and lagoon?

An artificial lagoon, an innovative solution designed to recreate a stunning seascape, is trending strong in the hotel, public and real estate industries.

These oases can be adapted to a range of sizes and uses by harnessing the special technology Fluidra has developed. These well-defined spaces are an extremely versatile solution that make it possible to include multiple concepts in a single design.

An artificial lake, on the other hand, is a large body that provides a fresh, ornamental touch to outdoor areas.

What are artificial lakes used for?

Tourist resorts use artificial lagoons or lakes to enhance guest relaxation and comfort, offering a range of water sports like kayaking, rowing and even sailing in small recreational boats. A variety of different recreational activities can also be developed for all types of audiences to create a unique concept.

What value do artificial lagoons bring to the business and/or user?

Artificial lagoons are a high-value aquatic addition that offers a host of advantages to any project.

Authors Leitch and Hovde argue that aquatic ecosystems can be valued from four perspectives:

  • Values for the owner: Values provided by the facility’s products and services, for example, aquatic plants, water, etc.
  • Values for users: Values like enjoyment and water quality.
  • Values for the region: Values related to ROI.
  • Values for society: The sum of the value for the users and the value for the owner.

All of these values are met when it comes to artificial lagoons like those that can be built in tourist resorts and real estate developments.

They benefit the property, the users that enjoy them, the region and society in general.
