Every little girl has dreamed of being a mermaid and living in an underwater palace. While it’s not possible to do a reverse Little Mermaid and swap our legs for a fishtail, these luxury homes in Dubai are the closest we can get to those dreams.
These ultra-futuristic holiday homes in Dubai float in the middle of the sea, tethered to a man-made island two-and-a-half miles away from Dubai’s coasts. Not exactly the most accessible properties, but the fact that you can only reach them by seaplane, boat, or jetski just adds to their exclusivity.
Called the Floating Seahorses, these villas boast panoramic views of the sea and glass-bottomed jacuzzis. But each property’s coolest feature is its underwater master bedroom, which comes complete with an en-suite bathroom and a 500-foot man-made coral garden just outside the window.

The Arabian Gulf is full of seahorses, which is why the development was named after them. Homeowners and their guests will be able to see actual seahorses swimming in the water, and can join them by just diving in.
Of course, these villas come at quite a price tag. If you’ve got a few million dollars that you don’t know what to do with, you’re in luck. reports that the larger versions of the villas will cost up to around $12 million each. If you haven’t got that much lying around, maybe you can opt for the smaller $2.8 million version.
The Floating Seahorse homes are part of a man-made chain of islands called The Heart of Europe.
