    Default Dubai Water Discus Underwater Hotel - $120 million

    Home to some of the most beautiful and progressive architecture in the entire world, Dubai will soon see the construction of a hotel with submerged, underwater rooms that offer unparalleled views of the Persian Gulf. Conceived by designers Deep Ocean Technology and dubbed the Water Discus Hotel, the building will be the first of several in the emirate and will feature an underwater section of 21 rooms, a dive center and bar up to 10 meters below the sea’s surface. A unique lighting system will illuminate the scene outside the submerged rooms’ windows while macro photography will also allows guests to zoom in on the surroundings for a better view. With the above-water portions of the hotel suspended high enough to avoid tsunamis and flooding, the underwater disc is engineered to surface in the event of a storm or other danger.

    In an attempt to give travelers better—or at least closer—ocean views, Dubai-based construction company Drydocks World and Swiss consulting, engineering, and brokerage firm BIG InvestConsult will build the Water Discus Hotel, a luxury underwater hotel in Dubai.

    Poland’s Deep Ocean Technology designed the hotel, surrounded by a coral reef, to have 21 two-person rooms with huge windows and an underwater diving center. Rooms will be as deep as 10 meters below the surface, and diving training will be offered. The hotel can also rotate. A large disc-shaped structure above the water will have a spa, garden, and upper-terrace swimming pool—presumably for guests at an underwater hotel who don’t actually want to be in the ocean.

    This seems very Bond-ish to me. I'd stay there, but I'd have to dress like a secret agent to get the full effect of it.
