Dubai continues to be a leader when it comes to innovative, luxury resorts, and if their Water Discus Underwater Hotel is any indication, Dubai shows no signs of slowing down.
The hotel gains its name from the building construction, which sees one disc above water, and one below. The top structure is connected to the bottom half with five solid legs, and includes a vertical shaft that has been outfitted with a lift and stairways for guests to explore the underwater portion of the hotel. The project was designed by the team at Deep Ocean Technology (DOT), and has won the group multiple technology and innovation awards. Before you get too excited, it’s worth noting that the hotel is just a concept at this point in time. But, judging from some of the existing structures in the area, we would count on seeing something similar to this in the coming years.
