Dubai is known for its outrageous design plans, but the Water Discus Hotel, formally announced last week, could be the wildest thing to come to the city in years.According to Deep Ocean Technology, the company behind the design, the hotel will consist of two sets of discs—one above water and one below.
The underwater disc, located up to 10 meters below the surface, will contain 21 hotel rooms, as well as an underwater dive centre and bar. The surface disc will house a restaurant, spa, and recreation area.
Building company Drydocks World signed a contract with Swiss firm BIG InvestConsult to develop the Water Discus Hotel in Dubai and other underwater hotels in the region last Thursday. No cost estimate or opening date has been announced.
