A marine style retreat lets you sleep underwater
23 August 2016
The Floating Seahorse, launched by the Kleindienst Group, is a unique underwater accommodation opportunity featuring rooms under the sea!
The Floating Seahorse is a truly unique underwater product which is the first of its kind in the world. In real terms, The Floating Seahorse is a marine style retreat (essentially a boat without propulsion) which has its own plot in the Arabian Gulf. To be located only a short boat ride from the coast of Dubai, each individual Floating Seahorse will boast three levels, one underwater, one at sea level and an upper deck. The master bedroom and bathroom will be totally submerged underwater and will command breathtaking views of the surrounding coral reef and marine life. The sea level accommodation will boast floor to ceiling windows, uninterrupted sea views, a fully-fitted kitchen with a dining area, an open plan living area and when the glass façade opens the sun deck becomes an extension of the living space. The upper deck is the perfect place for alfresco dining and relaxation and features an informal bed, a mini bar, a kitchenette and a beautiful glass-bottomed Jacuzzi. The deck can be converted into a winter bedroom which can be enclosed with retractable drapes. The Floating Seahorse has been designed and developed by leading European architects for Kleindienst Group’s iconic island project, located just 4km from the coast of Dubai.
Many dream about living close to marine life and underwater living and Kleindienst Group is thrilled to be making it a reality for the privileged few in the diverse and innovative city of Dubai. The estimated completion date for The Floating Seahorse is the end of 2016.
Kleindienst has recently announced the launch of The Signature Edition, a new icon now in the making in the UAE.
Inspired by the very best of Emirati culture and lifestyle and leading European designs, The Signature Edition of The Floating Seahorse has been developed especially for families with guests, groups and children of all ages. To ensure an authentic European experience, a team of experienced architects and interior designers have created The Signature Edition which is an impressive and unique fusion between Europe and the Emirates in a truly contemporary style to offer versatility, comfort and luxury marine style living in the Arabian Gulf.
Offering four flexi living/sleeping areas, The Signature Edition accommodates up to eight adults and eight children and provides excellent versatility whereby each level can be adapted to suit individual needs as and when required. Each unit can also be customised to ensure the ultimate in privacy by fully enclosing the outdoor areas on the sea level and upper level. When not enclosed, these outdoor areas can be used for alfresco entertaining all-year-round thanks to the introduction of climate controlled technology and innovation.
Each Signature Edition Floating Seahorse spans 4,004 square feet across three levels and will be home to unique special features, state-of-the-art technology and smart home automation.
The eight main rooms include a Sky Majlis and Sky Bedroom on the upper level and a Sea Family Room and Sea Bedroom on the sea level. The totally submerged level features an Underwater Ladies Room and Master Bedroom, A Coral Entertainment Room and a Coral Guest Bedroom. During the daytime all rooms can be used to serve various purposes and by night, they can be transformed into luxury sleeping accommodation.
The underwater level will boast two totally submerged en-suite underwater bedrooms with a view to the surrounding coral garden and marine life from the master bedroom. The living areas in the underwater level alone will span 861 square feet and the coral garden will exceed 600 square feet in size.
Designed, engineered and built in the UAE, 40 Signature Edition Floating Seahorses are now under production and are currently priced at approximately £2.4M.
