The hotel has marine biologists on staff to ensure that the sunken villa has minimal impact on the surrounding coral. This luxury experience is quite expensive (but worth it) since it costs around $50,000 nigh. A four-night vacation package of around $200,000.

Fun fact: the entire lower suite was built on land in Singapore, fittingly made of acrylic from Japan’s premiere aquarium manufacturer Nippura Co. Then the 600-ton structure was hoisted by crane onto a specialized ship that could transport it to the Maldives and moor near the reef without damaging it. It was then submerged into the ocean and held firmly in place by 10 concrete piles that ensure it will not move or shift due to a high tide or rough seas.
