Skylines are so passed. In an attempt to give travelers better—or at least closer—ocean views, Dubai-based construction company Drydocks World and Swiss consulting, engineering, and brokerage firm BIG Invest Consult will build the Water Discus Hotel, a luxury underwater hotel in Dubai.
Poland’s Deep Ocean Technology designed the hotel, surrounded by a coral reef, to have 21 two-person rooms with huge windows and an underwater diving center. Rooms will be as deep to 10 meters below the surface and diving training will be offered. The hotel can also rotate. A large disc-shaped structure above the water will have a spa, garden, and upper-terrace swimming pool–presumably for guests of an underwater hotel who don’t actually want to be in the ocean.
