If typical hotels aren’t exciting enough for you and you’re looking for something more enchanting, try an entirely different sort of hotel: a hotel underwater. Look through the glass and into the sea for a magical time. Here are some of the world’s most beautiful underwater hotels.
Atlantis the Palm (Dubai)
On the man-made island of Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, you’ll find Atlantis the Palm. Their underwater suites are the definition of luxury, with windows that reach from floor to ceiling for your gazing pleasure. The two suites are named after Roman gods of the ocean, Neptune and Poseidon – and, with their twenty-four-hour room service, you can dine like a god yourself. If you want to venture from your room, Atlantis the Palm has two award-winning underwater restaurants.
Lovers Deep Submarine
Are you interested in the most expensive hotel stay in the world? If so, Lovers Deep Submarine is for you. Submerged deep in the Caribbean Sea, you and your paramour will feel like you’ve left the world behind as you look into the clear, crystal-blue water. A personal butler will be at your beck and call, offering you a specialty menu that includes caviar and oysters. All you have to do is pay $292,000 a night.
Conrad Rangali Island Resort (The Maldives)
At Rangali Island Resort, you can look out on the Indian ocean from your deck on the upper level of your suite and look into the Indian ocean from the lower level. The resort’s spa is made up of charming tiki hut rooms with glass floors so you can watch fish flitting around in the water beneath you while you get a massage of a lifetime. Each suite has a gym, a kitchen, and a bar – as well as quarters for butlers and security. You might even see sharks swim by while relaxing in bed, but don’t let that scare you.
The Manta Resort (Zanzibar, Tanzania)
If you want a rooftop where you can gaze up at the stars before you go to sleep in a room surrounded by the sights under the ocean, the underwater room at the Manta Resort in Zanzibar might be for you. This resort isn’t merely underwater – it’s floating, which allows for a magical view of thousands of tropical fish swimming by. When you’re on the rooftop deck, you will also have a startlingly beautiful view of the African coastline.
Resort World Sentosa (Singapore)
If you get the ocean suite at Resort World Sentosa, you can relax in a hot tub on the above-ground deck before heading down to your underwater suite. When you look into the Singapore Strait through your window, you could see any of the fifteen-thousand species of native fish. Resort World Sentosa isn’t just a place to relax though. The resort also contains the Trick Eye Museum, which is famous for its optical art, a casino, and several amusement parks.
