If you’ve ever dreamt of being like Ariel and living under the sea, now’s your chance to make your fantasy a reality. The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island recently announced what they believe to be the world’s first underwater villa. They’re calling the stunning locale Muraka, or “coral” in Dhivehi (the local language of the Maldives), and it’s projected to sit 16 feet and four inches below the surface of the ocean. You’re sure to feel truly immersed in the blue waters and bustling ocean life.

The undersea abode is designed to be a two-level structure that will straddle the waterline. Residents will sleep under the ocean’s surface in a suite that features a king-size bedroom and bathroom, as well as a living area for relaxation. Above the water, lead by a spiral staircase, Muraka will have a bevy of amenities that speak to its high-end, luxury living; the features include another bedroom, bathroom, powder room, gym, butler’s quarters, security quarters, second living room, kitchen, bar, and a deck for your viewing pleasure.
Envisioned as a curved acrylic dome, the project will be completed by the end of 2018. Once done, it will be available at a starting rate of $50,000 a night. The villa will be fit to accommodate nine people.
This isn’t the first underwater venture that Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has created. In the mid-2000s, they opened Ithaa, the world’s first undersea restaurant.
Known for its underseas living, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has just announced their plans for a new underwater villa.
Called Muraka, they believe it to be the world’s first underwater residence.
Once completed in 2018, guests can sleep below water or enjoy the views above the sea.
