The Water Discus Hotel is expected to be Dubai’s premier hotel, displaying a true combination of Art and Technology. This hotel is expected to go above and beyond the expected standards of hotels all over the world. It will boast two different layers; one above the waters and the other beneath it, which will make it possible for customers to literally sleep with the fishes. The construction of this hotel has opened an avenue for a whole new era of hotels and with the pending completion of Water Discus, hoteliers who never thought this vision possible is now looking at it similarly to a transmission rebuild; a possibility no one thought was needed but greatly accepted once the first one was completed.
