Hydropolis: The World's First Luxury Underwater Hotel in Dubai.

Dubai is building the world's first luxury underwater hotel called Hydropolis:

"Hydropolis is not a project; it's a passion," enthuses Joachim Hauser, the developer and designer of the hotel. His futuristic vision is about to take shape 20m below the surface of the Arabian Gulf, just off the Jumeirah Beach coastline in Dubai. The £300 million, 220-suite hotel is due to open at the end of 2007 and will incorporate a host of innovations that will take it far beyond the original blueprint for an underwater complex worthy of Jules Verne.

If it's happening in Dubai, it doesn't surprise me. They're resculpting the shoreline to look like date palms and maps of the world, and planting weird skyscrapers everywhere. In less than ten years the city has literally been transformed from a sunburnt desert oasis into a sort of global superVegas!

Here, take a look:
