In addition to the underwater bedroom, the villa has an infinity pool, ocean-view bathtub, private gym and two docks.
The villa can accommodate up to 9 people, and the rate includes a 24-hour butler and personal chef. Before the pandemic, renting a villa at The Muraka cost about € 40,000 per day for at least four days, but now the price for this luxury vacation has halved.
The Ithaa Undersea Restaurant at 5 meters depth was previously recognized as the world's most beautiful restaurant, which is not surprising, because it is the first all-glass underwater restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the coral reefs, so you can watch colorful fish.
