This Luxury Maldives Resort Is Opening The First Underwater Hotel In The World

A luxury Maldives resort is going to take the sleeping under-the-sea phenomenon to a new level.


Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is constructing a $15 million two-story hotel villa, part of which will sit 16.4 feet below the Indian Ocean.


The property, considered to be the first undersea residence in the world, is under construction in the South Asian island country and is to be completed in November.


Named the Muraka — or “coral” in the Maldives’ local language Dhivehi — it aims to provide guests who travel here with an “intimate and immersive experience of one of the Earth’s most breathtaking marine environments.”


There is a gym, a bar, an infinity pool, butler’s quarters, an ocean-facing bathtub and most significantly an underwater bedroom floor with incredible looks of the ocean.

Connected to the upper level via a spiral staircase, this undersea suite section is going to be made up of a huge bedroom, living room, and bathroom.


The top level that also has a sunrise-facing deck to relax on measures 550 square meters, while the undersea sections occupy an area of 102 square meters.


Conrad Maldives Rangali Island’s general manager Stefano Ruzza, said: “We are excited to present Muraka’s unique sleeping under the sea experience to our future guests, providing them with an extraordinary seascape of the Maldives from an entirely new perspective.”



The Muraka can accommodate up to nine guests, is being erected by underwater design specialists M.J. Murphy Ltd.


It marks Conrad Hotels & Resorts’ second venture in underwater architecture and technology — the first being the Ithaa underwater restaurant, which launched at the same resort already 13 years ago and was constructed by the same New Zealand-based design consultancy.


The villa was designed like Ithaa, with a curved acrylic dome possessing a 180-degree panoramic view of the encircling marine life.



Guests can spend a night under the sea at hotels such as the Manta Resort on Pemba Island, which boasts a three-level underwater room and Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, which has rooms with windows facing a gigantic aquarium.


Resort World Sentosas in Singapore also offers two-story ocean suites overlooking an aquarium. Nevertheless, the Muraka is thought to be the first underwater “residence” and surely the most technologically advanced.


Ahmed Saleem, the chief architect and designer of the submerged residence, said: “Through our rich history of being a trailblazer in innovative luxury hospitality, we are proud to remain at the forefront of cutting-edge design, technology, and architecture.”


Located on two private islands joined by a footbridge in the Alif Dhaal Atoll, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is home to 12 award-winning restaurants and bars, including Ithaa, and two spas as well.


Conrad Hotels & Resorts is the first international hotel brand to enter the Maldivian market when the resort launched as Hilton Maldives Resort and Spa in 1997.
