Step Inside The Luxury Bomb Shelters Built For Billionaires

Full screen

What do you do when you’re wealthy and paranoid? You hire Vivos to build an underground survival bunker fit for royalty.

If the Ritz Carlton made doomsday shelters, they would look like this. These hideouts are designed to endure the end of the world in style, so you can kick back in luxury while the rest of humanity perishes in a nuclear explosion or zombie apocalypse

Vivos shelters are deep underground, fully self-contained complexes with more amenities that some hotels. We’re not just talking about customised living quarters and flat screen TVs – these bad boys are built with swimming pools, wine cellars, pet kennels, hydroponic gardens, gyms and medical facilities.


There’s also art, high ceilings, faux vegetation, plush carpets, leather couches and cupboards stocked with freeze-dried and canned foodstuffs. One luxurious shelter project, Vivos Indiana, is powered by two generators housed in a sound-proofed engine room. Another room contains high-grade filters that scrub incoming air of nuclear, biological and chemical particles.

As you may have guessed, Vivos doesn’t cater to jittery survivalists in tinfoil hats. The company’s customers are the cream of the crop, including a top surgeon, a colonel in the US military and a movie star. Outlasting Armageddon could cost you $3 to $5 million USD for a berth in a shared Vivos bunker. For a private facility, we can only assume you’ll be looking at significantly more.

Now you know what to get the man who has everything.
