Atlantis Made Real

Dubai 1

If all goes well, by the end of this year, we will no longer have to read the story of Atlantis and wonder what life was like underwater. Once the Hydropolis Underwater Hotel and Resort opens off the coast of Dubai, we will have a modern taste at what the “Underworld” has to offer…

Designed by Prof. Roland Dieterle, The Hydropolis will be the world’s first underwater luxury resort. It will sit 66 feet below the surface of the Persian Gulf, right off the Jumeira Beach in Dubai. The complex, composed of three sections- The welcoming land station, connecting transport tunnel for the train, and the resort itself- will be spread over an area roughly the size of London’s Hyde Park. According to parent company, Crescent Hydropolis Resorts (via Wikipedia… The site is under construction), The resort will be a 10-star hotel. Room rates are expected to start at about 5grand per night.

Dubai has been going bananas with these resorts springing up, with sail-shaped buildings, island resorts shaped like a palm leaf, and even another that’s supposed to be modeled after the map of the world! But this underwater thing… Hmm. I’m not too sure about that yet. I know, I know… you only live once right?!? But, I would have to wait a while before I make it there. How about you?!? Would you drop that 5grand or more for an underwater adventure?!?

Stay Classick!

    I know, right?!? But I would have to give it a year or 2, so they can get all the kinks, problems, etc. Out the way…

    I really wanna go.

    However I don’t think I could sleep with the risk of the blasted ocean collapsing on me.

    What are they doing to ensure safety?
