First Ever Undersea Villa of Maldives

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island will soon offer the dream comes into reality by sleep with the fishes but there's nothing at all sinister about it. The incredible images show that it’s potentially going to be one of the most sought-after hotel rooms in the world. The swanky resort is opening what is believed to be the world’s first-ever undersea villa. The suite, named the Muraka, has cost $15million to build and will give guests unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean.  The Muraka undersea suite is set to open at the end of 2018.

It's a two-deck affair, with the lower deck sitting 16 feet beneath the waves. The villas has a bedroom, living space and bathroom and, of course, swathes of glass so that guests can gaze at the colorful local sea life swimming past, wherever they are in the complex. The residence was designed by architects the Crown Company and is being built by New Zealand-based MJ Murphy Limited, which specializes in aquarium technology. The undersea suite is connected to the top deck by a spiral staircase.

Moreover, on the top, guests will find a twin-size bedroom, bathroom, powder room, gym, butler’s quarters, private security quarters, integrated living room, kitchen, bar and a dining room with a deck that faces the direction of the sunset. On the other side of the villa sits a relaxation deck that faces the direction of sunrise and an infinity swimming pool. Further the upper level also contains an extra king-size bedroom and bathroom, which boasts an ocean-facing bathtub, ideal for soaking in views of the endless horizon.

On the whole, Muraka can accommodate up to nine guests. Ahmed Saleem, the chief designer of the residence, driven by our inspiration to deliver innovative and transformative experiences to our global travelers, the world’s first undersea residence inspires visitors to explore the Maldives from a completely new perspective below the surface of the sea.
