Sleeping under the sea is a rare treat for us land dwellers. Luckily, a new wave of underwater hotels and suites in places like Bali, Pemba Island in Tanzania and the Atlantis The Palm in Dubai are letting lucky patrons sleep under the sea.
Atlantis The Palm in Dubai gained notoriety this week when it was visited by Khloe Kardashian. The famous reality star posted photos of her stay in the luxurious underwater suite, posing next to a stingray. The Palm has two such underwater suites — appropriately called Poseidon and Neptune — but it’ll take some serious star power to stay there. Typically, the rooms go for about $8,200 a night.
According to the hotel’s website, the three-story suites come with living rooms, dining rooms and even feature a bathroom with floor-to-ceiling views of an underwater lagoon that hosts 65,000 creatures. Also included? Gold-filled soap and a 24-hour butler to fulfill your every whim.
If you’re into more of a long-term stay under the surface, check out Dubai’s partially submerged “Floating Seahorse” homes. Residents will sleep with views of sea turtles (and yes, seahorses), with panoramic underwater views from their bedrooms.
