First underwater hotel in Dubai

Back then, it was to be called Hydropolis, an ambitious hotel under the sea project in Dubai. We first heard about it in 2007/2008, before the economic downturn that knocked off several glittery Dubai projects back to the sand (or slowly back into the sea, as in the case of The World Islands and Palm Deira).

It seems that Dubai never crossed it off its to do list.

Now, the proposed construction of the Water Discus Underwater Hotel put Dubai in the news of the biggest, tallest, most spectacular and the lavish race once again.

Two parts of the structure are connected by three solid legs and a vertical shaft containing an elevator and a stairway. The elevator takes guests 32 feet below the surface of the ocean, where the 21 hotel rooms, dive center and a bar are located. It’s being reported that each guest room will have special lighting so guests can photograph the sea life around them.

The view is beautiful, just don’t open the windows. 🙂

What do you think of it? Would you stay in this hotel?

    I would really like to share a room in this superb hotel and enjoy the life underneath. Let the Almighty shower all blessings to fulfil this small dream of mine.
