Have you ever wanted to snooze on the ocean floor? If so, The Water Discus Underwater Hotel in Dubai has just the thing for you. Designed by Polish firm Deep Ocean Technology, the 21 suite hotel consists of two discs, one above water and one below, connected by five legs and a vertical shaft containing a lift and stairway. The submerged lower disc, which is at a depth of 33 feet, will have a diving facility, underwater dining and will also have what can only be described as the ultimate wet bar. Dubai, an area known for it’s super-modern structures is no stranger to having out-of-this-world architecture and this Jetson’esque lodging expands on the area’s reputation by fitting right in. Imagine soaking in the view from your hotel room and ┬áinstead of the normal surface dweller view, you have the infinite blue of the sea, with all it’s ocean life instead. ┬áIf and when The Water Discus opens up, you can bet it will truly be a spectacle to behold.
