If you’re dying to sleep with the fishes, here’s how to do it

Who needs a TV when you’re 5m underwater?

Conrad Maldives Rangali island resort will debut the world’s first underwater hotel rooms later this year. The resort also boasts the first successful underwater restaurant, Ithaa.
The undersea residence, named Muraka (meaning coral), will sit about 5m underwater, burrowed between sand and coral in the Indian Ocean. It features a sweeping curved dome, similar to that of Ithaa, allowing Muraka’s residents “to sleep alongside the wonders of the abundant and colourful marine life that inhabit the sea”.The undersea suite includes a king-size bedroom, living area, bathroom, and a spiral staircase which leads to an upper level living room which has twin-size bedrooms, a bathroom, powder room, gym, butler’s quarters, private security quarters and an integrated kitchen and dining room.
In total, Muraka can accommodate up to nine guests.
