Australian T3 - - RADAR -

Dubai IS AL­READY THE HOME OF the world’s most lux­u­ri­ous ho­tel, the Burj Al Arab, and if Pol­ish com­pany Deep Ocean Tech­nol­ogy has its way it will be the lo­ca­tion of the world’s first un­der­wa­ter ho­tel, too.

The Wa­ter Dis­cus looks like Stromberg’s Spy Who Loved Me lair, mi­nus the shark tank, with two gi­ant discs – one above and one be­low the waves – sup­ported by legs drilled into the seabed. The sub­merged disc con­tains 22 sound-proofed rooms with ocean views at 10m deep (light doesn’t pen­e­trate be­low 15m deep), plus an un­der­wa­ter bar and dive cen­tre.
