World's first underwater hotel residence opens in Maldives

Conrad Maldives Rangali Muraka
The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has opened the world's first-ever underwater hotel residence.

The two-story villa is set more than 16 feet below the Indian Ocean. Its name is "Muraka," which means "coral" in the Maldives' local language Dhivehi.

The villa boasts of a private gym, a bar, an infinity pool, butler's quarters, an ocean-facing bathtub and an underwater bedroom with uninterrupted views of the ocean. The top floor of the villa, which is situated above the water, has a typical deck where one can soak up the sun.

In order to avail this unbelievable piece of luxury, you will have shell out $50,000 per night. The only catch is that one has to book it for a minimum of four nights package that includes a personal chef for all meals and the use of a private boat.

The Muraka isn't the first underwater venture at the hotel. The property is home to Ithaa, an underwater five-star restaurant.

Once the residence was lowered into the water, it was nailed into place with concrete pylons that will keep it from shifting during rough waves or at high tide.
