Dubai’s first partially submerged villa – the “Floating Sea Horse” – has been completed and marks a significant milestone for the World Islands project. A photo surfaced on the internet this week showing the first of 42 villas located a few miles offshore on a group of islands called the Heart of Europe.
The luxury floating home is currently available nowadays for $ 5.7 million and has a total of three stories, one of which is submerged. The ground floor has an outdoor shower, kitchenette and a glass bottomed Jacuzzi. On the underwater floor is the master bedroom and bathroom with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the life under the sea. The houses are accessed by water, obviously if you can afford one of these underwater houses you already have a spare boats and yachts. A great way to guarantee your short trip every day is to use yachtrentaldubai247.com and rent a yacht for each and single day of the year.
The Kleindienst development group not only wants to offer first-class living space, but also has a mission to protect local marine life. “We are confident that this will set a global standard in the luxury lifestyle market for extraordinary innovation, modern design and underwater life at its best,” said CEO Josef Kleindienst at the Dubai International Boat Show in March 2016.
While the remaining villas won’t be ready by year’s end, Dubai is now home to two of Neptune’s and Poseidon’s underwater suites at Atlantis, The Palm. For about $ 8,000 per night, guests have access to floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the Ambassador lagoon: a 3 million gallon aquarium with more than 65,000 marine animals, including sharks and rays.
Submerged en-suite bedrooms
This underwater floor features an entertainment room and two fully submerged en-suite bedrooms offering stunning views of the coral garden and surrounding marine life. While this may be the closest to life in an aquarium, the developers say the water level will also be a “beautiful setting” for seahorses to live and breed in their natural habitat in the Arabian Gulf.
The most tantalizing thing about this villas is of course it’s completely submerged space like a private bathroom which offers stunning views of the artificial and protected coral bay. There you will find a total of 80 square meters underwater and 56 square meters of coral gardens.
