Like we needed anymore reason to head to Maldives, you can now stay in underwater villas at the Conrad. Yes, your luxury island getaway just got a cherry on the top. By Japleen Kaur

The resort is already well known for giving people a stay that they’ll always remember. The property had an underwater restaurant Ithaa, but now guests can actually live in the midst of marine life, and yes, undersea. The Muraka is around 17 feet below sea level, and that means literally sleeping with water all around you. No kidding.

For a whooping Rs 3,608,750 for a night, you can live life the royal way. The price might be on the higher side, but hey, it comes with its benefits too! Think dedicated private staff, chef, butler, massage therapists; plus you’re flown in a private jet from the airport or you may choose a speedboat that’ll be at your service for as long as you’re there.

The villa is essentially a duplex with two levels — the upper one faces the ocean, and the sundeck comes with a gorgeous view. The lower level is when you enter the mermaid world with top-to-bottom glass walls for you to be able to really enjoy and live with the undersea life.  Water babies sure have found their dream space.

Muraka means ‘coral’ in their local language, and there couldn’t be a better name for this spot. In fact, the villa was made in Singapore, and then shipped to Maldives. Talk about the hard work that went behind it. With marine biologists on board with the project, there has been no harm caused to marine life.

When you think Maldives, you think Conrad. And that’s because the hotel was the first to have rooms on stilts, and then the first to have a restaurant under the sea. They are habitual to breaking records, and we can’t wait to see what’s next!
