For once, it's an opportunity to sleep with the fishes that doesn't mean you end up like a character in a mob movie.
The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has opened the world's first-ever underwater hotel residence.
More than just a room or a suite (this is the Maldives, after all, so luxury is the name of the game), 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.
In addition to a bed, shower and the other typical components of a hotel room, the Muraka takes it to another level with a private gym, a bar, an infinity pool, butler's quarters, an ocean-facing bathtub and most importantly an underwater bedroom with unparalleled views of the ocean.
The top floor, which is above the water, has a "relaxation deck" where you can sun yourself.
The price tag? A cool $50,000 per night, although you can't actually book the Muraka for single night stays -- it's only accessible via a four-night, $200,000 package that includes a personal chef for all meals and the use of a private boat.
Bonus: Those who book this insane package get automatic Hilton Diamond status.
The Muraka isn't the first underwater venture at the hotel. The property is home to Ithaa, an underwater five-star restaurant.
