Huvafen Fushi – underwater spa

If you are looking for a hydrating body wrap, you can’t beat one that’s below the waves. This underwater haven at Huvafen Fushi offers an array of soothing treatments designed to help you wash your cares away. Once you have chosen your favourite treatment, you can just leave your therapist to work their magic and then watch the marine life swim by outside the spa’s underwater window.

Anantara Kihavah Villas – underwater wine cave

You may be on a tropical island, but it doesn’t mean that you need to leave those little luxuries behind. Anantara Kihavah Villas' underwater wine cave found within the SEA restaurant features 275 labels from 15 countries, including vintages from Argentina, Australia as well as those from the Rhone Valley and Bordeaux. If you don’t wish to be disturbed, you can ask for a private wine tasting session where the resort’s sommelier will take you on a journey through the vineyards.

Why count sheep when you want to go to sleep when you can count turtles, parrot fish and manta rays? The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is home to the first underwater hotel room. At the end of a long pier you will find the chic and sleek Muraka villa. Split over two levels, you’ll find a bedroom, lounge, dining room, sundeck and pool above the waterline and a second bedroom beneath the waves.
