About geoLAGOON villages
We plan to create 4 resort villages in Québec. Each will offer double cottages that investors can buy and then rent on whatever platforms they prefer.
Rather than building a private pool and hot tub for each cottage, we decided to create a giant swimming lagoon owned and operated by a third-party corporation, which will also handle ticket sales.
The lagoon will be heated to 38°C year-round by an innovative energy ecosystem.
The geoLAGOON: a destination pool at 38°C
An attraction that aims for carbon neutrality by drawing on the infinite power of the sun and the Earth
Taking inspiration from Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, one of National Geographic’s 25 wonders of the world, we will custom build a state-of-the-art lagoon using a patented technology combining a water bath with an insulated, watertight sub-tank that stays very hot. Water from the open-air lagoon will circulate through the coils in the heated sub-tank at the flow rate required to keep it at 38°C.
Soleils Village: Woodland cottages powered mainly by solar energy
The first phase of the project involves the presale of 150 double woodland cottages. Once we have the permits, we will start construction of the lagoon, which will be built to swimming pool–level standards with no discharge into the surrounding environment, just like Iceland’s Blue Lagoon and Sky Lagoon (which are actually large pools). Depending on the location, we will either have a private water and wastewater treatment facility or connect to available municipal services.
Construction of the lagoon is conditional on the sale of the 150 Soleils Village lots, which shouldn’t be an issue judging by how well presales have been progressing in recent months.
The geoLAGOON won’t just be an aquatic attraction—it will be a showcase for geothermal and solar energy use.
The lagoon will be surrounded by 150 resort cottages clad in photovoltaic and thermal panels that will produce large amounts of energy.
The cottages will be heated with hot air by the lagoon, which will in turn be heated by geothermal, solar and biomass energy, with hydropower as a backup.
Rainwater will be collected and filtered for the water supply, and the techniques we use will significantly limit lagoon evaporation.
Our project aspires to be an international renewable energy model for carbon neutrality and self-sufficiency. The goal is to produce more energy than we consume by using geothermal, solar, and biomass energy.
We know of no other aquatic attraction in Canada with a goal as ambitious as ours: to use 100% renewable energy.
Each of the 4 resort villages and geoLAGOONs in Québec will be built on land already set aside for tourist attractions and accommodations.
We believe that geoLAGOON projects provide host communities with an opportunity to support and promote the use of renewables in the attractions industry, an energy-intensive sector where viable models of a greener, cleaner way forward are urgently needed.
In each of the 4 regions, we are offering 2 types of rental cottages, custom designed and factory built to our resort village standards and needs. We will not provide rental management services, which means that as a cottage owner, you will be free to list your property on whatever platform you see fit. Don’t want to handle it yourself? We will designate a management company that everyone can use.
There will be 2 villages near each lagoon. Lagoon Village will be home to urban-style waterfront cottages factory designed. Stay tuned for the design unveiling!
Soleils Village cottages will be in a wooded setting and arranged in circular configurations. These high-quality Scandinavian-style homes will also be factory built.
Depending on the location, you can reserve a planned lot or priority slot by providing a credit card preapproval of only $500 (which you will not be charged) and agreeing to deposit $5,000 in a notary trust account within 10 days. If the notary doesn’t receive your token payment within 10 days, your reservation will be cancelled and your unit will be released to another buyer.
The estimated price for a double woodland cottage is $819,000: The price of a lot zoned for short-term rentals on which 2 adjoining cottages can be built is currently $319,000 ($159,500 per unit). Hurry, this price may not last.
An additional amount estimated at $500,000 will be required to order a double cottage from our partner Laprise. This price may vary based on market conditions and the cost and availability of the materials and options you choose. Contact Laprise for more information.
The estimated price for a lagoon-front double cottage is between $990,000 and $1.1 million. The price of a lot zoned for short-term rentals on which 2 adjoining cottages can be built is currently $459,000 ($229,500 per unit). Hurry, this price may not last.
An additional amount estimated at between $531,000 and $641,000 will be required to order a double cottage from our partner. This price may vary based on market conditions and the cost and availability of the materials and options you choose.
