Live Your Best Life with These Top 5 Underwater Hotels
Updated: May 23
If an untraditional vacation is on your bucket list, check out these five unfathomable underwater hotels ready to take your adventuring to new depths.
Dubai – Atlantis The Palm
We begin our underwater excursion in the luxurious land of Dubai. If you know anything about Dubai, you know it's lavish. The Palm is a manmade island located in the United Arab Emirates. Aptly named the Neptune and Poseidon, these suites look out into the resort's aquarium, where 65,000 aquatic animals live among the ruins of the lost city of Atlantis. Depending on your suite, you will be able to view parts of the Arabian Sea. Serenity is an understatement.
Maldives – Subsix at Per Aquum Niyama
We fly over to the Maldives in South Asia. Subsix, was at one point, considered the only underwater nightclub and has expanded to include the moniker of an underwater "playground." Located within the superb Niyama resort, Subsix is situated 1,650 feet out in the ocean and twenty feet below the waterline, and it is accessible to anyone. From private Champagne breakfasts, intimate subaquatic lunches, wedding blessings to wine tastings, themed evenings, and club nights, you can chill out and enjoy the good life. Or you can dance the night away in this incredible underwater club while looking into the depths of the Indian Ocean. The underwater menu is one that will make your stay even more memorable.
Berlin – Atrium Bar at Radisson Blu
At this unique Radisson location, you can enjoy a room with an aquatic view as well as an impressive bar scene at the Atrium. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the Radisson Blu has many room types to choose from. You can enjoy a welcoming stay with stunning city views as your backdrop. One of their suites even has a breathtaking view of the historic Berlin Cathedral.
Fiji - Poseidon Undersea Resorts
This undersea resort is what dreams are made of. Poseidon Mystery Island is 225 acres and is encompassed by a 5,000-acre lagoon. You have many activities to select from during your stay. You can maneuver a Triton submarine, scuba dive in pristine waters, and even have an unforgettable wedding underwater. The resort's 25 suites will be located forty feet under the sea in an off-shore lagoon, and boast wall-to-ceiling windows and underwater lights, promising eye-popping views of multi-colored marine life. You'll need to register to receive notifications for room bookings when they become available. Once open, they will only take 7,200 reservations a year.
Zanzibar, Pemba Island – The Manta Resort
Elevated and crafted along an idyllic island beach, Zanzibar's Manta Resort offers privacy, romance, adventure, and water sports on East Africa's most beautiful island sanctuary. While the resort has some gorgeous seafront villas and garden rooms, it is especially famous for its underwater room, a private floating island with a bedroom 13 feet below the surface. A personal favorite, the Manta resort provides an underwater experience that includes solidarity and an enchanting firsthand view of some of the Earth's most beautiful coral.
No matter your decision, these underwater options will give you an experience that you will never forget.
