The Hydropolis Underwater Hotel and Resort, designed by Professor Roland Dieterle, is planned to be the world’s first underwater luxury resort. Located 66 ft underwater in the Persian Gulf, there are reported talks with the Disney Corporation to hold an underwater production of the Little Mermaid in the hotel’s lobby. Seems fitting, doesn’t it?

4. The Lunatic Hotel

This hotel is truly futuristic in that it is not projected to be completed until 2050. Steel and water will have to  be launched to the moon for this endeavor, but its designer, Hans-Jurgen Rombaut, claims that the existing minerals and ores on the moon can supply a majority of building materials. The most interesting feature? Guests will supposedly be able to experience low-gravity in specially designed towers.

While still being designed, the Aperion Hotel would be the second self-awarded 7 star hotel in Dubai. With a jungle theme in the 350 luxury apartment suites, the futuristic hotel includes a private lagoon, beaches, restaurants, cinemas, shopping, an art gallery, spas, and conference facilities.

A flying hotel equal to two football fields in the air would be able to accommodate 250 passenders and would travel at a speed of 174 miles per hour. The airship would provide tourists with a host of amenities including a casino, restaurants, and staterooms. In short, this hotel would be similar to a cruise liner in the air.

1. The Inflatable Space Hotel

This space hotel has a much sooner expected completion date of 2015. The Commercial Space Station Skywalker is an inflatable hotel to be located – where else? – in space! This hotel comes fully equipped for other future technology like space yachts and moon cruisers, and not to mention an estimated $1 million a night price tag.

These concept hotels may be in design and even some prototypes, however, for now some of these science fiction beauties are likely to stay just that for a while longer, fiction.
