Not content with having the world’s tallest hotel, Dubai is expected to take hospitality to new heights with its own ‘moon’ soon – an ultra-luxurious hotel themed around the celestial body, which costs US$5 billion (approx. S$7.02 billion). Here is all that we know about this massive project.
The massive moon-shaped destination resort is being designed by the Canadian company, Moon World Resorts Inc, and will reach a height of 735 feet. Expect the otherworldly destination to be built within as soon as 48 months.

The resort is aimed at adding to the many luxury and tourist attractions already present in the city, including the Dubai Mall and Atlantis Palm Jumeriah. This new resort is expected to bring in about 2.5 million guests annually.
Moon in Dubai is one of the many themed hotels in the gilded city that’s expected to give a further boost to the city’s economy, in sectors of hospitality, entertainment, attractions, education, technology, environment and space tourism, Michael R. Henderson, Co-Founder, Moon World Resorts Inc, told Arabian Business. The property – spread over 10 acres– will feature a wellness centre, nightclub, residences that include 300 private sky villas and hotel rooms.
The place will also be surrounded by a ‘lunar surface’, and will include a lunar colony, too. This will allow a place of exploration for those looking for affordable access to space tourism. Owners of the sky villas will also become members of an exclusive private club at the resort, the report added.
