No need to fly to the moon to play among the stars, you just need to fly to Dubai. A new luxury, moon-themed resort is set to open in the United Arab Emirates city, making dreams of space tourism a little more accessible.
Aptly named Moon Dubai, the resort will include a giant, hyper-realistic spherical moon with 4,000 hotel suites inside. Underneath the moon will be a three-storey circular podium filled with dining and entertainment venues including a promenade, nightclub, beach club, restaurants, wellness centre, theatre, lounges and meeting rooms.
Moon will also have about 300 private boutique residences that will be available for purchase. Each will be around 2,000 square feet and comes with a lifetime membership to Moon.
To truly feel like you’re in space, the resort will offer space-themed attractions, such as the Lunar Colony—a lunar surface simulation where guests can experience walking on the surface of the moon. There will also be hop-on-hop-off rover taxis available for visitors exploring the Colony.
“It will be a fully integrated, contemporary, luxurious destination resort encompassing a unique signature attraction,” Moon co-founder Michael R Henderson says.
