Dubai’s Futuristic Underwater Hotel

Would you stay in an hotel submerged below sea level? The architectural innovators over at Deep Ocean Technology have a conceptual design that is set to change the hotel industry and the vacationing experience in the Middle East. The Water Discus Underwater Hotel is designed as a modern and aquatic alternative to the mundane hotels found on land.

The grand structure features several discs both above and below water. The central tower adjoins a saucer-shaped space approximately five to seven meters above sea level with another mobile one that is generally stationed about ten meters underwater. The lower deck has the ability to resurface above water in the event of an emergency, which is demonstrated in the project's promo reel. Otherwise, guests can enjoy one of the twenty-one suites in the lower disc that offers comfort with the additional visual benefit of the natural marine environment. Other amenities of this luxurious hotel complex include a helicopter pad, a rooftop garden, an above-ground swimming pool, restaurants, a spa, and a recreational center.

Be sure to check out the video, below, that gives a glimpse of what it's like staying in one of the underwater rooms.
