Image exploring the ocean's depths in luxury. That's the aim of yet another spectacular hotel design out of Dubai.
The building company Drydocks World has signed a contract with Swiss firm BIG InvestConsult to develop underwater hotels across the region including the "Water Discus Hotel" in Dubai, reports news.au.com.
The plans for the Water Discus Hotels will include two spaceship-like buildings - an underwater and above-water one -- connected by three legs and a vertical shaft containing a elevator and stairway. The hotel is designed with 21 rooms, a dive center and a bar, all 32 feet below the surface of the ocean. Each guest room will feature special lighting, creating optimal light for guests to photograph the sea life around them, it is reported.
To get the real sea experience, guests will be able to operate miniature vehicles from inside their rooms that will take blown-up photographs of the surrounding sea creatures.
Deep Ocean Technology is the company behind the technology.
“Today, the advent of new technology made the heart of the ocean a setting not only for diving, but also for luxurious holidays," a BIG InvestConsult spokesperson said.
"Now the innovative concept of Water Discus Hotels makes it all possible.”
Dubai is also home to the “The World” - an estimated $18 billion reproduction of the Earth made out of islands and the Burj Khalifa, which is the world’s tallest building.
