A 735ft man made moon is coming to Dubai

Who needs to fly to the moon when you can just make your own for $5bn?

Dubai is looking to launch a $5bn moon-shaped resort designed by Canadian architectural company, Moon World Resorts Inc. The resort, which will reach heights of 735 feet, has been designed to be built within 48 months and is expected to rein in over 2.5 million guests annually.

Now, besides being a cool gimmick, you’re probably wondering what a gigantic man-made moon has to offer. Well, it turns out quite a lot, actually. Moon is set to include a wellness centre, nightclub, space tourism, and hospitality which are all set to add to the Emirates economy. The resort will be surrounded by a 10-acre lunar surface that includes an authentic “lunar colony” which is expected to enable guests to experience affordable space tourism on the ground.

Not only a flashy resort, Moon will also be a hub for space agencies and their astronauts. There will also be 300 private residential “sky villas” available for purchase, the owners of which will also become members of an exclusive private club. 

Moon World Resorts are expected to licence three more Moon resorts across the world, with one in each of the following regions of North America, Europe and Asia.
