the fact is that above 5 it's not official. it's just called 6 or 7 as it's better than 5, but is still listed as 5

i've reread the article and it is said hydropolis rooms are 7-star level, that means, it's officially listed as a 5, but would a 7 if there was this classification

If it turns out that the project has been cancelled, all the old forumers from SSP UAE owe me a gift, because I predicted it from the very start.

I'll update my Amazon wishlist..

if you don't get response then you might consider to go and check that place yourself when you're in dubai

maybe there's some activity at the land station?

Hmm.. that thing in the red box in the picture is where there's a construction board for it, and there's another board near the coast. I never thought why there was one inland, but is that where the entrance to a tunnel is?

I presumed people would go by boat and enter from the surface? Never paid much attention to the detail of the design since it looked like a balloon half floating in water.

Looks like a giant foot spa or jacuzzi.

I wouldn't be surprised if during contruction it collapsed and some people drowned, then they cancelled it and hid it from the media. And the architect ran away with the money.

If al-Ghurair is behind it, anything is possible. Did you know his privately owned school, Dubai National, has had a huge canteen that has pigeons flying everywhere in it and grey concrete on the floor, and the walls are grey and wires are sticking out. Has been like that for more than five or six years since it opened. And in the gym, huge metal planks fall from the roof suddenly. There's no fire protection and the gym burnt down also. The place is a disaster.
