Deep Ocean Technology & Drydocks World discuss the Water-Discus Hotel (one of its 'discs' is fully underwater) and other futuristic projects.

His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman Drydocks World & Maritime World met with Mr. Arkadiusz Majerski, President and CEO Deep Ocean Technology and Mr. Bogdan Gutkowski president of 'Big Invest'' to discuss issues related to the Water Discus Hotel project including the designs, engineering aspects and the structures. The increased interest in the development of this futuristic project in Dubai, the UAE, other GCC countries and other key destinations around the world was also discussed.

The Water Discus Underwater Hotel comprises of a number of discs-one underwater, at a depth ranging from 10 to 30 meters and the others above the surface allowing guests to admire the depths of the ocean while still being able to make the best of resort living on the surface.

Due to its modular and unique construction design, Water Discus can be expanded and customized to suit the surroundings and client requirements. A single discus is an independent structure of approximately 1000 square meters fully equipped to ensure the very highest levels of safety and comfort. This serves as an individual module and a single component of a bigger complex. A number of such modules may be used to build a hotel complex of a size which is suitable both to the client and the individual location. Complexes can be situated anywhere in the world and each design will be tailored to suit local conditions such as shape of the coast line and ocean depth around the reef.

An interesting aspect is that in the event of changes in either environmental or economic conditions the modules can be moved to a different location, offering a unique opportunity to live underwater on a permanent basis with unlimited options to change locations. This mobility also allows for easier changes in the interior design of the hotel as any disc can be detached and replaced at any time with a new one.
