A Stunning Underwater Villa Is Coming To The Maldives This Year ⇒ Sleeping beneath sea level in an underwater villa is the latest travel experience that needs to be bumped to the top of your travel bucket list! Conrad Maldives Rangali Island revealed that they are building a new undersea residence that’s expected to open in November 2018.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island revealed that they are building a new undersea residence immersed 16.4 feet under the Indian Ocean. It’s expected to open in November 2018 and a one-night stay will cost you a whopping $50,000. The new underwater villa will be called The Muraka, which means coral in Dhivehi, the local language in the Maldives.
Designed by Ahmed Saleem, the director at Crown Company, and built by Mike Murphy from M J Murphy Ltd., a New Zealand-based company that specializes in aquarium technology, the new underwater villa will have two stories—one located above sea level and a bedroom suite designed so you can sleep under the sea.
“The world’s first undersea residence encourages guests to explore the Maldives from an entirely new perspective below the surface of the sea. Through our rich history of being a trailblazer in innovative luxury hospitality, we are proud to remain at the forefront of cutting-edge design, technology and architecture.” Saleem said in a statement.
The undersea level will provide panoramic views of the surrounding ocean from the king-size bedroom, living area and bathroom. “We are excited to present Muraka’s unique sleeping under the sea experience to our future guests, providing them with an extraordinary seascape of the Maldives from an entirely new perspective,” said Stefano Ruzza, General Manager at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.
A spiral staircase leads upstairs to the upper level where you’ll not only find a king-size bedroom, living room, kitchen and bar, but also a twin-size bedroom, bathroom, powder room, gym and dining area with a deck that is situated for optimal sunset views. There’s also room for butler’s quarters and space for a private security detail to sleep. In total, the underwater villa can accommodate up to nine guests.
The underwater hotel rooms are a first for Conrad Maldives, but they know a thing or two about building under the sea. The resort’s Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, which opened 13 years ago, is located more than 16 feet under the ocean’s surface and has views of the surrounding coral garden. Even though several other hotels around the world including Dubai’s Atlantis, the Palm, have underwater suites that look out onto aquarium, Conrad Maldives believes the Muraka will be the world’s first undersea villa.
