Sleep With The Fishes: Underwater Hotels

By Francis Yupangco 7 years agoNo Comments

These hotels take sleeping with the fishes to a new level. The Manta Resort, recently opened this year in Pemba Island, Zanzibar, it is a stunning property that features rooms located 1300 below the Indian Reef, giving hotel guests the amazing views of it’s rich coral reef. The island is very remote, with the website advising that although the island does contain dirt roads, the only sensible way to arrive is charter flights. And at this point, if you are spending the nights watching the coral reefs from your bed, you might as well through in the charter flight. For approximately $1500/night, you can check into the underwater bedroom. Spotlights are located outside of the underwater bedroom windows, to attract marine life. Not all underwater hotels have to be tropical destinations, on the other side of the World, you can check into the Utter Inn in Sweden. A charming red room in the center of a Lake. Visitors are taken to their hotel room on an inflatable raft. The bedroom windows also feature panoramic views. Once you are in your hotel room, you can’t leave until you are picked up the next morning, so make sure you pack well. Interestingly enough, both of these amazing properties were created by Swedish artist Mikael Genberg, who has opened Genberg Underwater Hotels, with the goal of creating a series of underwater properties. MORE
