The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island takes luxury suite to a new level, 20 ft beneath the sea
Ever wanted to sleep 20 feet below the waves of the Indian Ocean but instead of falling asleep to the TV, how about thousands of silver fish surrounded by a colorful coral reef while encased in clear glass tube? The dream is a reality, if you have some cash. In the Maldives, in a semicircular translucent tube that turns royal blue as the sun sets. This glass cocoon is puts new meaning in waterfront real estate and ocean view dining.
The suite at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island which is normally one of the worlds most unique restaurants, can, for about a $1,000 an hour, turn into one of the most amazing bedrooms on the planet.
Upon request, the resort will transform the 12- seat restaurant into a private guest suite for one unforgettable night. Imagine lying in bed, far below the Sea, as reams of fish: sturgeon, parrot, jack, clown, and needle – swim by overhead. Picture waking up to the sight of a moray eel or sting ray gracefully gliding by or an ancient sea turtle making its rounds. According to the hotel, guests occasionally see sharks and manta rays too. The restaurant offers breathtaking views and ‘fusion Maldivian cuisine and rumor has it that over lunch the place is so bright that guests and staff have to wear sunglasses.
Naturally, such an opportunity comes at a price about $15,000 a night! That rate includes a private champagne dinner as well as breakfast in bed. Does this sound transcendent? Scary? Claustrophobic? Absolutely thrilling? Do you think you’d be able to sleep a wink? Would it matter?
You Should Know Before You Go: The special suite is available for only one night of a guest’s stay and arrangements must be made prior to arrival. Available to only one set of guests at a time.
