    If you are a traveller and have the penchant for luxury, you can now stay at the world's first ever underwater villa in the Maldives.

    The two-story villa is located around 16 feet below the Indian Ocean, and has been named 'Muraka', which, in the local Dhivehi language, means coral, reports CNN.

    Muraka is a part of the Conrad Maldives Rangali island resort.

    Muraka has taken luxury a notch higher, as the villa boasts of a private gym, a bar, an infinity pool, butler's quarters, an ocean-facing bathtub and an underwater bedroom with uninterrupted views of the ocean.



    The underwater bedroom.
    The top floor of the villa, which is situated above the water, has a typical deck where one can soak up the sun.

    In order to avail this unbelievable piece of luxury, you will have shell out USD 50,000 (Rs 36.67 lakh) per night. The only catch is that one has to book it for a minimum of four nights.

    If someone plans to opt the USD 2,00,000 (Rs 1.46 crore) package, a personal chef and a private boat would be an added amenity.

    The wash and bath area offers a stunning view of the underwater life in the Indian Ocean.

    Although, Muraka isn't the first underwater concept since the resort already has an underwater five-star restaurant named 'Ithaa'.

    Like Ithaa, Muraka too is connected to the rest of the resort by a jetty.

    The villa is secluded since the initial idea was to not disturb several non-aquatic life forms.

    The villa was built in Singapore on land and was brought into the Maldives with the help of a special purpose ship.



    The two-level suite gives you views of the outer and under-sea.

    The whole structure was then lowered into the water and was put into place with the help of concrete pylons which would eventually help to keep it steady from rough waves or high tides.
