Overview

Similar to an oil platform, this hotel will be two-levels "with a superstructure containing common areas such as the lobby, restaurant, gym and helipad, while a second underwater pod has the 21 suites, a bar and a dive center. The two sections are connected by a shaft with stairs and an elevator.
