Underwater hotel opens this month

Dubai gets all the cool stuff. If it isn't the world's tallest hotel, or a building inspired by an iPod, it's a hotel that is underwater. The Hydropolis Undersea Resort will open its doors this month, offering guests 220 rooms of scenic underwater views. Located in the Arabian Gulf, the hotel sits approximately 60 feet underwater, and has a roof that can open for special events. Obviously the roof is located above water, or that would a real problem for those inside.

Trains connect guests from dry land to the hotel, and while staying at the luxurious Hydropolis Undersea Resorts guests can shop in the mall, dine at island restaurants, or watch a movie in the state of the art theater. Best of all you can sleep sound knowing you are protected by the hotel's very own missile defense system.
