Klein­di­enst Group has an­nounced The Float­ing Venice, the world's first un­der­wa­ter lux­ury ves­sel re­sort at Ci­tyscape Global. Val­ued at 2.5Bn AED (US$680m USD), The Float­ing Venice will be lo­cated in The World is­lands, 4km off­shore from Dubai.

The re­sort has a ca­pac­ity of up to 3,000 guests, with ac­com­mo­da­tion, restau­rants and recre­ation split over four decks, one of which is un­der­wa­ter.

Guests will ar­rive by boat, sea­plane or he­li­copter to the main Pi­azza San Marco where they can check-in at the un­der­wa­ter lobby be­fore a gon­dola im­ported from Venice trans­ports guests to one of the 414 be­spoke cab­ins or 24 pools.

The site will con­tain 12 float­ing beaches, over 400,000 sqft of corals, 12 restau­rants and bars (three of which are un­der­wa­ter) and the world’s first un­der­wa­ter spa. Fes­ti­vals such as Car­ni­vale di Venezia, Bin­nale di Venezia and Festa del Ren­den­tore will bring to mind an­cient Venice.

Con­structed from a mix­ture of con­crete for the un­der­wa­ter sec­tions and marine light­weight ma­te­ri­als for the up­per decks, The Float­ing Venice is de­signed to have a life­span of at least 100 years.

Con­struc­tion is sched­uled to be­gin in Q1 2018 with com­ple­tion by Q4 2020.

Josef Klein­di­enst, chair­man, said: "As a de­vel­oper our vi­sion sup­ports and aligns with Dubai's am­bi­tion to be a lead­ing global des­ti­na­tion and home of in­no­va­tion as the world's most for­ward­think­ing city. I am ex­tremely ex­cited and proud of The Float­ing Venice.

Our aim is to en­hance the land­scape of real es­tate and hos­pi­tal­ity and de­liver a new iconic ex­pe­ri­ence.

The Float­ing Venice is the epit­ome of this in­no­va­tion and spirit, the world's first lux­ury un­der­wa­ter ves­sel re­sort.”
