Dubai: Underwater Luxury Hotel Planned

The Middle Eastern United Arab Emirate city of Dubai, awash in oil riches, is becoming what may eventually be a combination of Las Vegas and a Disney theme park. It’s already full of luxury casino hotels and can boast of the skyscraper Bruj Khalifa, the planet’s tallest building.

Dubai also features “The World”, an island chain of beach resorts that resembles a map of the earth as seen from space. Now in the plans is an extensive hotel that will be partially 30 feet under the ocean water. Because of its proposed flying saucer spaceship shape, it’s will be known as Water Discus Hotel. 

With personal video cameras and the hotel’s advanced graphic technologies, hotel guests will be surrounded by both real and virtual sea creatures of the Persian Gulf. For more information about plans and progress of the hotel project, go to dubai.com.
