Maldives: World's first underwater villa is crazier than our dreams

Got $50,000 to spend but can't think of anything? We suggest you spend a night in the world's most happening villa in the Maldives. Read more to dive into the details.

Did you ever think how sleeping in the ocean felt like? Think no more, visit the Conrad Maldives Rangali luxury resort to experience the world's first underwater bedroom with a view.

Like never seen before, this submerged haven definitely is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity. So why not seize it?

Coral haven

Rangali Island always has innovation at heart. They were the first ones to perch villas above the ocean and the first to explore living beneath the sea; something which has since become Maldive's signature, making it on several influencers' profiles on Instagram.

Basically, you can lounge or even have a bath amongst the fishes, stingrays, sea turtles, and sharks watching you.

Eco-friendly aquarium

Coupled with innovation, Conrad Maldives keeps in mind that over half a billion people's livelihood depends on reefs, for food, income, and protection.

As an eco-friendly approach, the hotel employs marine scientists to guarantee that the submerged villa has the least possible impact on the coral in the area. The Muraka, which means ‘coral’ in Dhivehi, is a steel, concrete, and acrylic building designed keeping biota in mind.

This is important as a night in this unique spot in the world (and perfect for a Jaws session) comes at a cost. You'll have to pay a whopping $50,000 for an unforgettable underwater experience. And if your wallet still doesn't allow you to splurge, we'll let you dream in front of the sublime photos of this extraordinary hotel. You can book a night at the villa here.
