Deep Ocean Technology, a Polish team of scientists and engineers, has unveiled plans for an underwater luxury hotel in Dubai. The ‘Water Discus Hotel’ will be comprised of an above-ground ‘disc’ as well as an underwater ‘disc.’ The above-ground disc will feature an exotic garden, restaurant, spa, swimming pool, and helipad while the underwater disc will house 21 guest rooms, a diving center, and a bar.

The underwater disc, which will be 10 meters (~33 feet) below the water level, promises guests a unique experience; perhaps the most luxurious amenity will be the panoramic views of a coral reef, giving guests the opportunity to come as close as possible to reef and the surrounding sea creatures without getting wet. Special lighting in the rooms and remote controlled underwater vehicles that guests can control from their rooms ‘will allow [guests] to take a closer look at even the most microscopic underwater creatures using macro photography.’

For those wanting to get a little bit closer to the marine life (and wet), guests will be able to dive the reef or explore the area with ‘underwater tourist vehicles’- the hotel will even offer training courses for those interested in diving.

Deep Ocean Technology on the promise of the ‘Water Discus Hotel:’

Top-rated resorts offering luxurious conditions and amenities have become the new standard for active leisure. A wide selection of luxury hotels can be found in virtually every part of the world. But Water Discus offers much more. We bring you a de luxe hotel combined with a real marine adventure and breathtaking views found only in the heart of the ocean.

Scroll through pictures of the ‘Water Discus Hotel’ and start planning your underwater vacation:
