Dubai’s new extravagance – A luxurious underwater hotelTourism
When it comes to boast unusual architectural designs, Dubai is certainly ahead of the curve and does not have any competitors of comparable scales. It seems like that after winning the title of the tallest building in the world, skyline is passé. In order to give a whole new reason to travelers to visit Dubai, the real estate developers are planning to construct something below the earth. Tourists will explore the ocean’s depth in luxury. Yes, this is the aim of yet another spectacular underwater hotel design in Dubai.
Most of the real estate experts believe the launch of new project indicates that finally Dubai is recovering from financial crisis and returning to its heydays with such grandiose property projects. Drydocks World, a Dubai-based construction company, in coordination with BIG InvestConsult, a Swiss consulting, engineering and brokerage firm, will build Water Discus Hotel in Dubai. Deep Ocean Technology has designed the hotel, surrounded by a coral reef, to have 21 two-person rooms with huge windows and an underwater diving centre.
As per official information released by officials, the underwater hotel will be 10 metres below the surface and to explore the reef, diving training will be offered. A similar large disc-shaped structure will be above the water and will possess a spa, garden and upper terrace swimming pool, for the guests at an underwater hotel who do not want to dive in the ocean. The hotel design is inspired more by a ship design than a building, to keep the structure simple and construction cost low. The acrylic windows are the most expensive part of building that can be added or removed depending upon budget. Bear in mind, the building is not connected to the ocean floor, therefore it can be rotated. In case of emergency or for repairs, the hotel can be evacuated in 15 minutes.
Water Discus Hotel is not the first underwater hotel but it can be the first one to succeed. Hotel is as secure as possible so the travellers should not wonder, because if something goes wrong, the evacuation system that lifts the underwater hotel to the surface can really be expected to work, depending upon the requirement.
