Plans for a Dubai hotel that is half submerged in the ocean are the most outlandish we’ve ever seen

Design firm Deep Ocean Technology has caused quite a stir this week. Their plans for a Dubai hotel that is half submerged in the ocean are the most outlandish we’ve ever seen.

The two-disc complex has been dubbed the ‘Water Discus Hotel’. With one disc suspended high above the ocean surface, and another submerged deep underwater, the hotel will give a whole new meaning to seeing another side of the world.

Naturally, the hotel is marked to set new standards in luxury, while offering the pinnacle in maritime adventures – namely diving.

Deep Ocean Technology are also at pains to emphasize the safety measures built into its design. Looking like something from a sci-fi or Bond film, its designers are keen for it to avoid becoming the star of a disaster film anytime soon.

Dubai has materialized some incredible construction projects before – think, the tallest building on the planet in the Burj Khalifa, and the monstrous private islands project The World. Let’s just say, we’re not holding our breath on this one becoming a reality – though we really hope it does!

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
