With a project construction cost of $105 million, a pioneering submarine designer by the name of Bruce Jones, honed his skills for the construction of a undersea hotel. Located on the Poseidon Mystery Island in Fiji, this Poseidon Undersea Resort is surrounded by 5,000-acre lagoon, and goes straight 1,200 squares feet under the sea to offer an enigmatic submarine view.

Poseidon, the first underwater resort in the world, boasts magnificent coral reefs where you can literally immerse yourself. It features twenty-two 550 sq ft large underwater guest rooms, a 3,000 sq ft rotating restaurant, a bar, a conference room, a library, a wedding chapel, a spa and a 1,200 sq ft luxury suit called the “Nautilus”. These all combined makes this multifaceted resort the largest underwater accommodation around the world.

Spending a night in the most expensive suit of the Poseidon Undersea Resort will cost you $15,000! According to the Poseidon Resorts website, “the first 1,000 guests will have their names permanently inscribed on two monuments – one on the island, and one on the floor of the lagoon.”

Why should you seek a hotel on the Moon, when lunar hotels built right here on the Earth can provide you the same sensations? If Heerim Architects have their way, the world will see a new breathtaking futuristic hotel design that will come into reality in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku.

The hotel complex will feature two “lunar inspired” projects, the Hotel Full Moon and the Hotel Crescent; one of these is very similar to the Death Star from the Star Wars sagas and the other is proposed as its counterpoint. Facing the Full Moon Bay, the Hotel Crescent will be a curving arch resembling a curved moon, while the Hotel Full Moon will face the Caspian Sea and appear as a broad disc with circular edges and a hole in one of the top corners.

Hotel Full Moon itself is a 150 meter high, 35 story luxury complex with 382 large rooms. Hotel Crescent concealed by its arched facade will stand out as Full Moon’s counterpoint. The two luxury complexes will be connected by three tall residential buildings, and the overall design and architecture of this bizarre futuristic hotel is just amazing!

The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel in Dubai is one of the largest modern construction projects in the world. Covering an area of about 260 hectares, it will include 220 suits submerged 66-feet under water. A self acclaimed 10 star hotel will be located below the surface of the Persian Gulf. The major attractions of the hotel include a shopping mall, a ballroom, a cinema hall, islands, villas and restaurants.

With the design, the hotel architects Joachim Hauser and Professor Roland Dieterle endeavor to deliver the serene beauty of the limpid ocean in its true colors. An estimated cost of $500-million has been put forward for the completion of this project.

The Hydropolis, being located in one of the most ultra-luxurious city, is being promoted as one of the most extravagant tourist spots in the world. A night in a luxury hotel in Hydropolis Underwater is priced at $5,500 per person.

4. The Lunatic Hotel, Moon

The Lunatic Hotel is a very futuristic concept hotel that is expected to take its real shape by 2050. Hans-Jurgen Rombaut’s design will take guests through special towers on the moon where they will experience low gravity; these joys of low gravity will serve well with the spectacular views from the hotel sprinkled with an alien feeling for the guests.

Lunatic Hotel will stand out as a one-of-a-kind luxurious hotel as it is one of the most bizarre, arduous and expensive concepts for a hotel. Comprised of two 160 meters high slanting towers, it will host its guests in its own “habitation capsules”, where they can enjoy the low-gravity games. 50-cms thick hull made of Moon rock and additional layers holding water will protect the hotel’s inhabitants from extreme temperature, harmful cosmic rays, fell solar particles and the harsh lunar environment overall.

Colossal amount of water and steel will have to transported to the moon for this project. According to Rombaut, the dream project is feasible, and the existing materials and ore in the moon can comfortably support most of the building materials of the Lunatic Hotel. A real lunar village (!) will soon follow this project, if the whole concept comes out successful. Let’s hope it does.
