This Luxury Underwater Hotel Is An Architectural Marvel

Inspired by Star Trek Enterprise and Jacques Cousteau, an underwater hotel is set to be constructed in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Deep Ocean Technology secured the patent back in 2011, and the futuristic hotel will comprise a large, disc-shaped enclosure, which can be lowered into submersion or raised into the open air as required. The patented technology includes a ballast tank for each enclosure, so that they can be detached in the case of an emergency such as a tsunami.
