The first underwater hotel in the world opened in the Maldives
Luxury residences in the ocean, as well as transparent ceilings and walls are amazing.
In the Maldives, opened the first hotel in the world, which is located at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. The international company Crown built the underwater residence and spent $ 15 million on its project. The hotel is called Muraka, which in translation from the local language Dhivehi means “coral”.
The hotel is equipped with all the necessary attributes of the luxury hotel sector: individual gyms, swimming pools, spa areas with oceanic trace elements.
But most of all, the presence of bedrooms with transparent walls and ceilings, through which one can closely observe the life of the inhabitants of the underwater world, is striking.
Building a hotel helped New Zealand engineers who are versed in aquarium technology. The building itself consists of two levels - surface and underwater, located at a five-meter depth. Under the water are the bedroom, living room and bathroom. The walls of the villa are made of glass so that guests can observe the underwater life of the Indian Ocean.
On the upper level of the villa there is a home gym, a butler room, security rooms, as well as a living room, kitchen, bar and dining room opening onto the terrace. In total, Muraka can accommodate up to nine guests. One night under water will cost guests 50 thousand dollars.
