Is it a hotel or a James Bond villain’s secret lair? The proposed Water Discus underwater hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, would take a room with a sea view to a whole new level.
The luxury hotel will be comprised of two main discs — one underwater, one above the surface, connected by three solid legs for support and a vertical shaft containing an elevator and stairway.
The movable underwater disc, surrounded by a coral reef and resting about 30 feet beneath the sea’s surface, will contain 21 hotel rooms, an underwater dive center and a bar.
The hotel is expected to cost between $350 million and $840 million to build.
