Living in floating underwater houses surrounded by the sea and marine life? Sounds dreamy, right? Well, thanks to revolutionary thinking designers and modern engineering,  this is not just an imagination anymore. Let us introduce the Seahorse water villas from Dubai!

The Seahorse floating underwater houses in Dubai

The concept of the floating underwater houses was introduced at the Dubai International Boat Show in March 2015 by The Kleindienst Group.  In the first stage, they announced the building of the 42 villas that become part of the World Islands.

The concept received a big interest from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, The Caribbean, Sweden and Portugal. The floating underwater houses are not restricted to Dubai waters, can be designed for other destinations worldwide too. The first models are placed in the Heart of Europe project that forms the European Islands in the Dubai World Islands artificial landmark off the coast of Dubai. A new project “The Floating Underwater Houses” offers a luxurious environment to live with having a relaxing view of the underwater world even when lying on your bed.

The floating Seahorse water villas

The floating underwater houses are officially boats without propulsion. Each house has 3 luxurious levels:

  • Underwater level – bedroom and bathroom
  • Sea level – living area, kitchen and dining area
  • Upper level – minibar and jacuzzi

On the underwater level, there is an outside deck where an artificial coral reef can grow. Like this, you can have your own coral garden with shoaling fish and tiny sea creatures around! This is truly snorkeler’s dream house! This coral garden will be a protected area, where endangered species, like seahorses, can safely live and breed. This is where the name Floating “Seahorse” Villas comes. After the success of the first stage, the company launched the Signature Edition Seahorse villas. With 3 fully personalized levels and more than 4000 square ft space, the new models will meet the needs of families with kids and bigger groups.
