The amazing residence, which will be the world’s first, is currently under construction on an island in South Asia and should be ready by the end of the year.
The $15 million property will be part of the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, with a portion of the two-story villa actually resting 16.4 feet deep into the Indian Ocean. The room is called Muraka, which stands for “coral” in Dhivehi, the local language of the Maldives. It can hold up to nine people and will include a king-size bedroom, living area and bathroom, which will be connected to the top floor by a spiral staircase.
Unfortunately, but obviously, staying in the room won’t be cheap. It will cost guests $50,000 a night to enjoy this exceptional experience. While this is being promoted as the “world’s first” underwater hotel room, there have been other attempts at similar attractions.
Dubai has advertised partially underwater luxury villas that aren’t ready or available for purchase just yet. The Manta Resort on Pemba Island has a three-level underwater room. Singapore’s Resort World Sentosas has a two-story ocean suite the overlooks an aquarium, which is cool, but not technically underwater.
Even the Conrad company has a similar feature, with their Ithaa undersea restaurant, seen above. The dining establishment was opened over decade ago and definitely gives guests a preview of what the room will be like. The villa will also include a gym, a bar, an infinity pool, butler’s quarters and an ocean-facing bathtub. The floor above will have a 550-square-meter relaxation deck that faces the sunrise.
