New Divine Eyes heated eye masks help ease tired eyes, headaches and stress

The natural ingredients in the new Divine Eyes masks gently heat up as they come into contact with the air and remain warm for up to 25 minutes. The effect, combined with the lavender scent the masks are infused with, speeds up the feeling of relaxation and make them a great takeaway spa retail item.

Underwater hotel project for Dubai

BY Kath Hudson

Plans are moving forward on a futuristic underwater hotel project in Dubai, which will allow guests to sleep with fish swimming outside their bedroom windows.

The Water Discus Hotel will have 21 submerged rooms, as well as 30 above the surface, a dive centre, luxury spa, two restaurants, a swimming pool and a helipad.

According to Bogdan Gutkowski, CEO of Big Invest, which is one of the partners in the project, the design concepts are now being finalised, talks are ongoing with investors and he is confident the project will happen.

“This project is unique, so we don’t have a routine to follow, but we are moving forward into new areas,” he says. “We are partnering with a Polish firm, DOT Ltd, which has a unique and patented technology for building an underwater hotel.”

Gutkowski added that the hotel could open as early as 2015.
