By Thia Shi Min, 24 Jun 2013
The Maldives may be swallowed up by rising sea levels in the future, but the architects at Deep Ocean Technology will build an underwater hotel to house its inhabitants.
Called ‘The Water Discus’, this futuristic hotel has two circular discs which will house its 22 rooms, along with a restaurant, spas and lounges.
The structure above ground will be connected to the structure below via a staircase and an elevator, where a bar and a diving center will also be located.
The underwater section is also weighed down by water, and can surface for emergencies and inspections.
