This unique feature is made possible through complete glazing and offers spectacular views into the underwater world. This can be seen in the stunning coral reef of Hainan Island off the southern coast of China, where the first of the luxurious hotels is being built. With its tropical location, impressive natural scenery and rapidly developing tourist infrastructure, Hainan offers the ideal conditions for such an endeavour.

The hotel’s land station is where the reception, lounge and technical infrastructure are located. Once arriving, guests can comfortably board a boat shuttle to the underwater hotel itself. The concept is conceived around hotels that are first built on land at a shipyard and then anchored underground on site. This way, the Hydropolis underwater hotels are always in the most desired underwater locations, ensuring an unforgettable holiday.
