Underwater Hotel

16 posts in this topic

What you guys think?

Deep Ocean Technology is the latest to show off a design with what it is calling the Water Discus Hotel proposed for Dubai.

The top level ? 5-6 metres above the surface ? will contain the hotel's lobby, a spa, a restaurant, seawater swimming pools, and a garden ? and all hotel rooms will have windows opening onto the reefs, with specialised lighting to illuminate what's outside.

Our safety measures include a monitoring system integrated with an international earthquake and weather warning system. The hotel is monitored by numerous video cameras and remotely operated underwater vehicles, which are positioned in appropriate places around the complex.

Do you think this will happen?

What is the point of this?

A bit like having time-share units on the Moon.

Time you arrive, be time to leave.

Well, you are sleeping, then you are floating and then probably ready to drown as someone left a door or window open.

Or could be better, you are being ripped to shreds by a hungry shark.

Damn now that might be a nice place but like he said before would have to be careful and not open a window! ;)

The portion above water looks a lot like the Jetsons' home, but cooler.

Unless there is another glass outside that will activate only on night time.

It only takes a few seconds to go down an elevator? How deep you think the water is there? Not much.

Why would the windows OPEN up to let water in. You are not making sense. It would be cool to have lights out side your window to see coral life swimming by. I would want to stay there.

I make as much sense as an underwater hotel.

This could be neat, for a day... But I think people would get bored of it rather quickly... Once the cool factor wore off, why would you be down there?

And that evacuation system concerns me greatly. It has a LOT of opportunity for failure...
