For luxury travelers looking for a unique experience, we’ve got a trend for you — underwater hotel rooms. Each of these fancy shmancy hotels charges big bucks to let you sleep with the fishes. Looking for unique accommodation but don’t want to shell out the cash? Don’t worry, we’ve got a little something for you too.
The Manta Resort (Zanzibar)
Where You’ll Sleep: 13 feet below the Indian Ocean
What It’ll Cost You: $1,500 per night
Voted: The Ultimate In Privacy
Hop on a boat on the coast of Zanzibar and take the short ride out to this three story floating cabin in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The roof of your private home makes a great deck for sunbathing (not to mention the perfect platform for jumping into the ocean), and your outdoor living room is ideal for enjoying the wine and 4 course meal you’ll be served. The real kicker? When it’s time for bed, the waves will rock you to sleep.
The Atlantis, The Palm (Dubai)
Where You’ll Sleep: Smack dab in the middle of an aquarium
What It’ll Cost You: $8,200 per night
Voted: Most Likely To Run Into Kim Kardashian
At this 5-star resort that happens to be one of Kim K’s stomping grounds, you’ll wash your hands with 24-carat gold infused soap, drink hundreds of dollars worth of Dom Perignon, and make use of your impressively well-equipped 24 hour butler service (they can accommodate your every whim — seriously, a guest once asked for a camel?!). During the day you can scuba dive the resort’s aquarium and take a peek into your room to check on your camel.
Lovers Deep (Caribbean Islands)
Where You’ll (Err) Sleep: In a soundproof submarine
What It’ll Cost You: $290,000 per night
If you’re looking for a romantic getaway that’s equal parts unique, cheesy and expensive, the Lovers Deep submarine is probably for you. The primary focus of this deep sea dive is to allow guests to join the “Mile Low Club.” The crew sets the mood with champagne, rose petals strewn on the bed, and a private chef that serves up a meal of oysters, caviar and dark chocolate. A Barry White CD is also available upon request (yeah, we wish we were kidding too).
Resort World Sentosa (Singapore)
Where You’ll Sleep: Amongst 80,000 sea animals of 800 different species
What It’ll Cost You: $1,300 per night
Voted: Most Affordable
With floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on the world’s largest aquarium, this spot is perfect for people who have always wanted to scuba dive but are afraid to take the plunge. At feeding time, dim the lights and lift the curtain to watch schools of fish swarm just inches from your window. Afterwards, head to the second floor to take a relaxing dip in your private outdoor jacuzzi.
