Just when we thought we'd seen everything, Deep Ocean Technology signs a contractor to build the Water Discus Underwater Hotel, a luxury complex planned for Dubai (naturally) that features several discs both above and below water.
Twenty-one suites are slated for the lower disc, and all will provide up-close-and-personal encounters with the marine environment. The complex's other amenities will include a helicopter pad, a rooftop garden, an above-ground swimming pool, restaurants, a spa, and a recreational center.
Out of concern for marine life, DOT says that each disc is sized according to local conditions, and can be relocated if "any changes in the environmental or economic conditions occur."
No word on when construction will begin.
