Dubai is known for its extravagant development projects, like the indoor ski resorts, rotating skyscrapers and “miracle gardens,” to name just a few.

The newest project, “The Floating Seahorse,” is exceptionally lavish: it’s a floating home with underwater rooms.

These villas will cost approximately 1.8 million dollars.This apartment complex will consist of 42 villas, each of which will offer 1,700 square feet of floor area over 3 levels, with the lower level being under water.

The upper level will have a shower, kitchenette, mini bar, and Jacuzzi, and will feature a glass floor.

And finally the submerged lower level will house the master bedroom and bathroom — with glass windows, of course!

Each level is equipped with floor to ceiling windows that offer amazing views of marine life. It truly is like having your own personal aquarium.

The Floating Seahorse villas will be part of the Kleindienst Group’s developmental project called “The Heart of Europe,” which is a group of artificial islands modelled after European design and heritage. The Heart of Europe itself is in a section called “The World,” a man-made archipelago constructed in the shape of a globe located 4 kilometers off the coast of Dubai.

Developers of the Floating Seahorse say they’ll also be creating some accommodations for seahorses and other endangered species as well. CEO Josef Kleindienst had this to say in a press release:

The Seahorse is an endangered species and we will create an artificial coral reef beneath the luxury retreats which will be a protected area in which seahorses can safely live and breed. Very soon, people will be able to see up-close and personal, the beautiful and elegant Arabian horse of the ocean – the seahorse!

The first villas will be launched at the end of 2016 and first of the owners will be able to move into their home in 2017.
