Ladies and gentlemen, I present The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates:
Currently under construction in Dubai, Hydropolis is the world’s first luxury underwater hotel. It will include three elements: the land station, where guests will be welcomed, the connecting tunnel, which will transport people by train to the main area of the hotel, and the 220 suites within the submarine leisure complex. It is one of the largest contemporary construction projects in the world, covering an area of 260 hectares, about the size of London’s Hyde Park.
“Hydropolis is not a project; it’s a passion,” enthuses Joachim Hauser, the developer and designer of the hotel.
The estimated cost of the hotel is £300 million, and it’s set to open in December 2007. Come one, come all!
