The Muraka Underwater Hotel

Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter, under the sea. But don’t just take it from me–or The Little Mermaid–simply take a look at this one-of-a-kind underwater hotel room, by Conrad Hotels and Resorts.

Called “Muraka”–which means “coral” in Dhivehi, the language spoken in the Maldives–this submarine suite anchors itself 16 feet below the ocean surface. Equipped with a king-sized bedroom, a living room area, a bathroom, and even a second floor, this glimmering sea-villa is reminiscent of an Atlantean palace. If you choose to shell out the $50,000 a night that Conrad Hotels charges for such an amenity, you will be submerged in a glass-walled enclosure, swathed by the kaleidoscopic ocean. Your wallpaper will be the schools of vibrant fish that swim past. When the lights go out, your night sky will be the phosphorescent and biolumescent aquatic life, glowing like stars overhead. Chief architect of the underwater enclosure Ahmed Saleem designed “Muraka” with relaxation and solitude in mind–and the possibility of scoping a completely new perspective of the Maldives. Touting itself as the first hotel of its kind, this vacation residence is in a league of its own.

Purchase: $50,000
