Well-heeled vacationers in the Maldives can now sleep with fishes in the world’s first-ever underwater villa. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, a resort in the South Asian island nation, unveiled its $15 million submarine project on Tuesday. The result will be a two-story hotel villa, the bottom half of which will plunge five meters (16.4 feet) under the Indian Ocean, when completed later this year. No need for wetsuits and snorkels, guests at the undersea villa—dubbed Muraka, which means coral in the local Dhivehi language—will get intimate 180-degree views of the Maldives’ diverse marine life from the comfort of a five-star hotel bed. The underwater portion is essentially an acrylic tank built into the sea floor, which encompasses a king-size bedroom, bathroom, living room and spiral staircase to the second level, according to the resort. The final prices for the suite have yet to be finalized, but the hotel estimates it will cost about $50,000 per night, says Karla Crockett, director of brand communications at Conrad Hotels & Resorts, in an email.

Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.
