I thought Dubai was out of money. Hundreds of real estate projects canceled. Lavish island mega-resorts eroding into the sea as construction halts indefinitely. Thousands upon thousands of workers handed walking papers—what’s that? Dubai’s planning a garishly overdone underwater hotel big enough to make Poseidon blush? We’re back!
In what appears to be a revival of an original construction project unfortunately known as “Hydropolis”, the new hotel is being built by a company called DryDocks, which specializes in deep-sea oil rigs. Two things come to mind here. One: This could be my chance to finally sleep inside an aquarium. Two: I don’t think I want to eat fish in a restaurant while live fish stare at me from the wet side of the glass. At the very least, we can now look forward to more crazy resort ideas from Dubai.
