Sleep Underwater In Dubai's 'Floating Seahorse' Homes

Are floating homes the new overwater bungalows?

Sure, we know overwater bungalows are on any travel-lover's wish list, but how about underwater bungalows? Dubai's newest "floating villas" feature an underwater master bedroom with 360-degree views of the ocean and extra care in making sure the neighbors are happy too. Part of the "Floating Seahorse" initiative is creating housing for sea critters: "We will create an artificial coral reef beneath the luxury retreats," said real estate agency Kleindienst CEO Josef Kleindienst, in a press release. "[It] will be a protected area in which seahorses can safely live and breed."

Take a look at some of the renderings of the Floating Seahorse and get more info on these homes here.
