The Discus (2)

Deep Ocean Technology – The Water Discus Underwater Hotel

Designed by Polish company Deep Ocean Technology (DOT), The Water Discus hotel will be the world’s largest underwater hotel, located in Dubai. Guests will get the experience of being in the very heart of the underwater world day and night.

Water Discus plans to make your staying a fun experience, offering diving classes and submersible piloting, suitable even for beginners.

Water Discus Hotels will comprise two discs, an underwater and above-water one, offering guests a fantastic view of the depths of the ocean. The two parts of the structure are connected by five solid legs and a vertical shaft containing a lift and stairway.

The disc, located up to 10 meters beneath the surface of the sea, is composed of 21 hotel rooms adjacent to the underwater dive center and a bar. Each room is integrated with the underwater world as closely as possible, offering a surprisingly direct, yet safe contact with the local flora and fauna.

Special lighting system of the area around the room and the miniature underwater vehicles which can be operated from inside will allow you to take a closer look at even the most microscopic underwater creatures using macro photography.

The modular construction of the hotel will enable it to be expanded or even moved to a new location, if any changes in environmental or economic conditions may happen.
