The Water Discus Hotel, where sleeping with the fishes is a promise rather than a threat
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.
Global holding company Dubai World has set its shipbuilding arm the task of making this hotel reality. Time to start saving for that dream underwater holiday. deepoceantechnology.com
