About a year ago we published a 4-part review of the fantastic Conrad Maldives written by one of our regular commentors.
The resort was already quite impressive but has now invested a further $15 million to offer guests the opportunity to sleep underwater.
From later this year guests will be able to book the underwater residence called Muraka (coral). The Muraka will have two floors of which the lower one sits five metres below sea level featuring a 180-degree dome for panoramic views of the marine life.
The upper level will have a further two bedrooms, bathroom, gym, butler’s and private security quarters, a living room, kitchen and a deck facing the direction of the sunset. If you prefer sunrise, there is a further deck by the infinity pool facing the other direction.
