When all this while you have lived above the ocean; how about living amidst it!
Yes, it is indeed possible. And, in what beauteous fashion. Conrad Maldives has been dedicating their time and hour to a new experiential venture for all you island lovers. Flashback 13 years, and Conrad was the first ever to introduce an undersea restaurant – Ithaa. Following suit, they are in the process of presenting the first ever ‘undersea residence’, by the end of 2018.
With an exclusive glimpse to the underwater world 24/7; guests staying at ‘The Muraka’, meaning “coral” in Dhivehi – local language of the Maldives, will have an intimate and immersive experience of breathtaking marine environments. Rest assured, Muraka’s guests will truly cherish unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean during their stay. Be it waking up to the sea residences floating by, or sleeping alongside the wonders of the colourful marine life.
The undersea residence is a 2-level architectural marvel comprising living spaces above the sea level and a suite under, designed for sleeping purposes. The Muraka’s undersea suite features a king size bedroom, living area, bathroom and spiral staircase that leads to the upper level living room. The undersea bedroom floor level sits five meters (16.4 feet) below sea level. The living spaces below the sea will boast of a 180-degree panoramic view of the Indian Ocean’s intricate marine life.
The Muraka’s upper level features a twin-size bedroom, bathroom, powder room, gym, butler’s quarters, private security quarters, integrated living room, kitchen, bar and dining, which features a deck that purposely faces the direction of the sunset for optimal viewing pleasure. On the opposite side of the villa, sits the relaxation deck that faces the direction of sunrise and is complete with an infinity swimming pool. The upper level also contains an additional king size bedroom and bathroom, which boasts a masterfully appointed ocean-facing bathtub; ideal for soaking in views of the endless horizon.
In total, The Muraka can accommodate up to nine guests. Isn’t it a dreamy marvel crafted into reality! The perfect space for a small gathering of friends, family and loved ones all together, living a wish piped in to a delightful reality.
With this new additional feather in the cap; Conrad Maldives will truly be able to provide a luxurious opportunity to its guests to 'experience Maldives in a true Oceanic way'.
