Explore sea life from the comfort of your room or take a dive with a submersible tourist vehicle at this new luxury resort.

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.’
