Dubai – already home to the world’s biggest indoor theme park and on the way to opening the world’s longest zip line – is getting another jaw-dropping attraction: an underwater luxury vessel resort.

Opening in 2020, The Floating Venice will offer an “authentic Venetian experience” in the Middle East. The floating resort — that’s technically classified as a boat — will have an underwater deck with accommodations as well as restaurants, bars, and shops.

Above the sea, the Italian-inspired design includes rising domes that resemble structures like the Basilica San Marco, as well as gondolas, glass-bottom (well, acrylic-bottom) pools, and 12 floating beaches.
