Itís Baack... New Underwater Hotel in Dubai Announced (Again!)
Well, call us eternally optimistic, but once again itís been announced that an underwater hotel is to be built off the coast of Dubai and we hope, that this time, itís for real.
Designed by Poland-based firm, Deep Ocean Technology, the ďWater Discus HotelĒ is space-age good. Two discs comprise the main part of the hotel, connected by three vertical legs and a shaft that holds the elevator and stairs. One disc rises above the water and the other is submerged below.
Above water, the hotel contains the lobby, restaurant, spa and pools, and below are 21 luxurious rooms, a dive center and a bar, giving a whole new meaning to the term ďwet bar.Ē
Completion dates have not yet been announced, nor anticipated room rates, but we'll keep you posted. Or maybe not. We wouldn't be surprised if this planned hotel also floats away in the deep dark unknown.
