If you fancy waking up to a room submerged several feet underwater, an ongoing project on Dubai’s The World islands may just be the perfect choice.

Setting the bar higher for luxury living, a developer has just unveiled a community of floating villas to a select group of property investors in Dubai. The villas feature underwater rooms “offering magnificent views of the spectacular sea world.”

Each property initially costs a whopping Dh5 million, according to several media reports. It will be a three-level house, with a rooftop deck at the third level and a suite at the bottom floor, submerged 13 feet underwater.

It will be constructed across a 1,700-square-foot area on The World Islands and will be one of the myriad of attractions of the Heart of Europe project by developer Kleindienst Group.

A source from the office of the developer confirmed to Gulf News that a pre-launch VIP sales event took place on Saturday, but refused to divulge more details. More info
