The world’s first luxury underwater hotel – Hydropolis Underwater Hotel, Dubai, UAE

June 6, 2007 at 4:01 pm (Photo Gallery)

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 about to take shape 20m below the surface of the Arabian Gulf,
just off the Jumeirah Beach. The land belongs to His Highness General Sheikh
Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and was his last
free beach property on this stretch of coast.

Hauser plans to incorporate many different elements associated with the sea.
He views his creation as a place where those who do not dive – or do not even swim
– can experience the tranquillity and inspiration of the underwater world.
