Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live underwater? If you answered yes, wonder no more! Dubai's latest endeavor is a partially submerged hotel shaped like a discus. The building company, Drydocks World, has signed a contract with the Swiss firm BIG InvestConsult to develop underwater hotels across the region including the "Water Discus Hotel" in Dubai.
The hotel "discs" are to be located up to 10m below the surface and will include 21 guest rooms as well as an underwater dive centre and bar. Guests will have the ability to utilize mobile electronics allowing them to take photographs of the sea life they experience all from the comfort of their own rooms!
Water Discus Hotels are comprised of two discs; one underwater and one above water. The two parts of the structure will be connected by three legs and a vertical shaft containing a lift and stairway. This combination allows guests to admire the depths of the ocean while making the most of the warm climate.
The Water Discus Hotel project opens many new fields of development for hotel and tourism sector, housing and city sector in the coastal off-shore areas, as well as new opportunities for ecology support by creation of new underwater ecosystems and activities on underwater world.
