The sci-fi styled Water Discus underwater luxury hotel, in Dubai, will house 21 two-guest rooms, and sit about 33 feet (10 m) below the sea.
Water Discus Hotel consists of two parts, the underwater and the above-water.
This combination will allow guests to admire the underwater view while making the most of the mild climate.
A large central shaft connects the two parts of the structure containing a lift and stairway.
Three adjustable columns add further support to the above-surface portion of the structure.
The construction will come from the collaboration of Drydocks World and BIG InvestConsult AG representing Polish firm Deep Ocean Technology (DOT).
“Water Discus Hotel project opens many new fields of development for the 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 protection. Additionally we would like to create here in the UAE the international environmental programme and centre of the Underwater World Protection – with Water Discus Hotel as a laboratory tool for oceans and seas environment protection and research.” Bogdan Gutkowski, President of BIG INVEST Group, said.
