Worlds First Underwater Hotel Opens In The Maldives


Everyone enjoys a wonderful view, and for nature lovers, it doesn’t get much better than a hotel under the sea. When you stay at these incredible underwater hotels, you don’t need to know how to dive to experience the magic below sea level.


These exquisite and fascinating undersea hotels may be found all over the world, including the Conrad Muraka in the Maldives. Without having to leave the luxury of your hotel room, you’ll be surrounded by the finned and scaled creatures you adore.

While some are currently under construction, the majority of the hotels are open for reservations. Simply expect to pay anywhere from $250 to $225,000 every night. However, the incomparable views and bragging rights that come with sleeping with the fish are well worth it.


The Muraka is a Hilton underwater hotel on Rangali Island, which is part of the Conrad Maldives. This two-level villa, which is 16 feet below sea level and has a master bedroom and a bathroom, with floor-to-ceiling glass walls to take in the Indian Ocean’s marine life. The hotel debuted in November 2018. The word muraka means coral in Dhivehi, the indigenous language.

Guests can enjoy two bedrooms and a bathroom on the sea level, as well as an outside balcony with an infinity pool, butler service, and access to a private chef. In addition, you can hire a personal trainer and book spa treatments in your suite.

If you’re travelling with kids, the resort will make up a teepee in your undersea suite with a pillow fort and treats of your choice . A children’s club and a Junior Diving Course are also available at the resort!

The suite can accommodate up to nine people, and nightly rates start at $50,000. You can fly directly to Muraka or take a speedboat from Conrad Maldives Rangali, which you can keep for the remainder of your stay. There is also the option of renting private jet skis.

A decade ago, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island debuted its first undersea restaurant. The Ithaa (meaning “mother of pearl”) restaurant, which is also 16 feet below sea level and surrounded by coral gardens, is a first-of-its-kind establishment with set menus that include a six-course dinner.

Whilst the prices may be a little steep, you can see why people pay the big bucks for this experience. It truly would be a once in a lifetime experience!

If quirky hotels are your things then you’ll be blown away by this.
