Dubai is proud to call numerous architectural feats her own, and now, she can add the Water Discus Hotel to the roster. Designed by Depp Ocean Technology, the Water Discus Hotel will be the first of several in the emirates to feature an underwater section of 21 rooms that will bring new meaning to the phrase “Sleeping with the fish…”. The Water Discus Hotel will also feature a dive centre and a bar 10 meters deep from sea level. A special lighting system will illuminate the underwater surrounding scene for submerged rooms to ensure that patrons can get a great view of what’s happening on the other side of the glass windows. The above-water discus hotel rooms will be perched high enough above the sea level to avoid tsunamis and flooding (beside, the safest place to be during a storm will be under water). What a concept! Let’s hope that due diligence is taken to protect the surrounding nature and underwater creatures.
