Polish architectural and deep-sea engineering company Deep Ocean Technology has inked a deal with Ridgewood Hotels and Suites Pvt. Ltd. to build its futuristic part-underwater Water Discus Hotel just off the shore of Kuredhivaru Island in the Maldives.

The Water Discus Hotel will be based on the same two disc concept slated for Dubai that we reported on last year. The upper part of the structure will allow guests to take advantage of all that the local climate has to offer, while the submerged disc will offer the chance to relax with the marine life of the Indian Ocean.

It will to be located next to ZEN Resort, Kuredhivaru Island, Noonu Atoll. In a press statement, Deep Ocean Technology cited the popularity of water-based activities in the region, such as the Huvafen Fushi underwater spa, as an indication of an existing market for such ventures.

There's no word as to an expected opening time, or even when construction will commence, but the company did report that it is to begin the design stage immediately.

It would be disconcerting to open your eyes after a session of torrid fornication to see a skindiver hovering above you taking photos
