The dream travel destination is here! Sleep with sharks, dine with wishes, and witness the majestic beauty of the ocean.
Are you somebody who is obsessed with oceans, fishes, sharks and basically everything marine? Have you ever wished you could see the ocean from inside and witness its full glory? Well, now you can! The world's first ever underwater fully-functional hotel is here and it is everything you have ever dreamt of! The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has officially opened up world's first hotel submerged in waters. A two-story luxurious villa exists more than 16 feet underwater which allows you to sleep underwater with fishes floating around you and eat while under the ocean. Let's dive in, shall we?
The underwater villa called 'the Muraka' which roughly translates to 'coral' in the Maldives is loaded with world-class amenities, greatest technology, private bars, underwater gym, a pool, a tanning deck and literally everything you can possibly imagine. All THAT under the surface of water surrounded by fisheries and magnificent corals. Plus, there is also a five-star restaurant for you to satisfy your hunger.
“The completion of The Muraka is a personal lifetime achievement,” said Ahmed Saleem, chief architect and designer of the residence, in a statement. “After years in the making, my team and I are proud to officially present The Muraka residence and its accompanying Maldivian experience to worldly travelers who crave the extraordinary.” Now, the world's first such wonder is surely wonderful and quite pricey but hey, it is totally worth it!
About $50,000 for a night, there is also a private holiday package available which you can avail for $200,000 which will allow you to stay in the luxury hotel for four nights, along with your own private chef, private ship and a diamond upgrade to the best suite in the hotel. So, if you have been saving up for your dream holiday, this is it. This is possibly the best way you can spend your hard earned money on.
And, just in case you have a slight fear of sleeping underwater and only wish to eat at the restaurant and not actually stay in the hotel, there are rooms specifically built for people like you, over the surface of the water which are equally good as well and come attached with the prettiest swimming pool ever. The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has now become one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world and people are loving it.
"Truly amazing place and experience - we stayed there about 10 days under the Hilton Honors program and must say this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Travel worked well - were expected in the airport and guided to waterplane desk and lounge. Stayed one our in lounge - very relaxing place and a good time to take a shower. Airplane flight is a special experience. Airplane docks directly in the resort so no additional transfer," a person reviewed the hotel on Trip Advisor. "Nice family resort, where you get fantastic rooms, service, and nice food. Lots of sports activities, fantastic service. Very nice pool area. Big hotel, but not crowded. Perfect spot for swimming with the whale sharks. We saw turtles two," added another. Go check out the underwater hotel here.
