To fly to the Moon without leaving the hotel: a fantastic resort for billionaires opens in the UAE
In four years, residents and visitors of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates will be able to access another luxury tourist attraction in a sophisticated and ultra-modern style called Moon World Resorts.
The bold architectural project, estimated at USD 5 billion, aims to recreate the Moon in a luxury resort, Olhar Digital writes.
The project, developed by Canadian businessmen Michael R. Henderson and Sandra G. Matthews, includes a 224-meter-high structure with a circumference of 622 meters, where guests can feel like they are on the Earth's natural satellite.
The project is aimed not only at attracting tourists on vacation, but also at holding sophisticated events and parties in an arena with a capacity of 10,000 people. According to the developers, the hotel will have about four thousand rooms.
Some of them can even be bought. "Approximately 144 luxury units will be available for purchase, each measuring 13 by 17 square meters. Owners will receive exclusive privileges through a lifetime membership in the owners' club.
"We are in the process of turning an extremely complex and bold mega-concept into a physical reality," reads another post on the official Instagram of the future resort.
"When Moon opens in about 2027, you will be able to walk on the lunar surface, exploring a truly authentic lunar colony. Yes, you're walking on the moon," the project creators announce.
The initiators of the project say that it will be "a very luxurious and modern resort, fully integrated with many of the components you are already familiar with."
One of the highlights is the structure's nighttime lighting, which will change depending on the specific phase the moon is going through. Henderson explains that the intention is to give visitors the experience of being on the Moon without leaving Earth.
According to the businessman, there is an intention to build at least four lunar tourist resorts around the world. In addition to Dubai, the resort is to be built in one country in Europe, another in North Africa, and one in North America.
