The Manta Resort Underwater Hotel Room in Zanzibar, Africa, is not your usual peaceful hotel. It’s so much more.
The rooms at the resort feature a rooftop deck, living space, bathroom / dining areas on the middle floor, and then… a fully-submersed lower level lined with windows for viewing the marine life. There is room service as everywhere else – only you will have to wait a little.
Depending on the season, you can book a one-night stay for as low as $1,000.
It is stunning, indeed. But this is not the only place offering an underwater room.
5. Lovers Deep Submarine Hotel
One night at Lovers Deep costs $150,000. This makes it the one of the most expensive hotel rooms both on land or underwater. For this price, however, you get a private chef / butler, speedboat transfers, helicopter transfers, beach landing, a two-person shower, and – sure enough – a champagne-soaked breakfast.
4. Hydropolis Dubai
The Hydropolis is not completed yet. But once they open, they will have 220 underwater suites covering an area of 260 hectares. This is the area equivalent to Hyde Park in London.
The hotel design was created by Joachim Hauser and Professor Roland Dieterle, and is planned to be composed of three segments: a land station, a connecting train, and the underwater hotel.

1. Jules Undersea Lodge
If you want to reach the entrance of Jules Undersea Lodge, you will have to dive 21-feet. This means going through a 3-hour instructional crash course if you are not an experienced diver.
You may not believe it, but the Jules als has room service. And you can even order pizza.
