A stunning new underwater villa is set to make its debut in the Maldives this month, offering guests a breathtaking experience whilst immersed in the wonders of a diverse marine eco-system below the Indian Ocean.

Owned by Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton, the innovative luxury resort is situated on the pristine Rangali Island, and offers four fully-customisable options for guests to create a meaningful and personalised journey in the Maldives.

The suite, named The Muraka, has cost $15m to build, giving guests an unprecedented view into the colourful wonders of one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Guest rooms hold two deck levels, with the lower deck sitting 16ft underwater. The spacious and illuminated rooms have bedroom, living room, and bathroom, with glass panels giving its occupants incredible views of local sea life swimming around them.

On the top deck, guests will be treated to a twin-size bedroom, bathroom, gym, butler’s quarters, kitchen, bar, a dining room with a deck that faces out into the sunset, and private security quarters as well.

Costing £38,000 a night, the residence is designed by architects the Crown Company, and experts in aquarium technology, New Zealand-based M J Murphy Ltd, built the villa.

The Muraka offers a collection of four experience menus, available exclusively to those staying at the resort. Tailored to the unique desires of different travellers with experiences ranging from adventure, food, and entertainment, to wellness, culture, and sustainability, the menus are labelled The Wanderers, The Flavours, The Soul, and The Thrill.

Guests who book at The Muraka will work with a dedicated reservations team to curate their own journey, borrowing inspiration from the four menus to ultimately create a meaningful and personalised journey in the Maldives and immerse themselves in a variety of transcendent experiences above and below the surface of the ocean.

“As the first-of-its-kind residence with dynamic accommodations both above and below the surface of the water, The Muraka is an extraordinary vehicle for a truly immersive journey into nature which cannot be found anywhere else in the world,” said Stefano Ruzza, general manager of Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.

“Through a variety of curated and captivating offerings, we will maximise the potential of this incredible residence to bring unique travel experiences to our valued guests.”
