Conrad Hotels & Resorts has announced the official debut of THE MURAKA this month at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.  A triumph of modern design and technology, the incredible residence delivers a truly transformative journey suited to amaze the most sophisticated explorers across the globe – and it’s now taking bookings.
No ordinary hotel room, guests can now check-in to the world’s first undersea villa. The first of its kind, this two-level residence features seamless living both above and below the ocean.

Ahmed Saleem, a Director at Crown Company and chief architect and designer of the residence told FOUR. “After years in the making, my team and I are proud to officially present THE MURAKA residence and its accompanying Maldivian experience to worldly travelers who crave the extraordinary.”

THE MURAKA features four curated menu suggestions, which come packed with exclusive experiences tailored to varying desires of today’s travelers. Defining the core ethos of THE MURAKA journey these experience menus – The Wanderers, The Flavors, The Soul and The Thrill – complement the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore one of the world’s most breathtaking natural environments from an entirely new perspective.

All guests who stay at the residence will have their own devoted butlers, who are dedicated to hyper-personalization and attention. Available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week, these butlers deliver exceptional service and stand out as ambassadors of Conrad Maldives Rangali Island as they guide guests through their own unique Maldivian journey.

Beyond that, they are equipped with the ability to educate guests about the options available in THE MURAKA and in the Maldives. Whether it’s a question of passion culture, environment or adventure, these butlers aim to cater to every whim.

Among the new enhancements being made at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, the property is also now welcoming guests to stay at the newly redeveloped Deluxe Beach Villas. Designed by MURAKA’s design collaborator Yuji Yamazaki, the Deluxe Beach Villas are a celebration of the natural environment and continue to be one of the resort’s most popular villa categories. With a new design that is focused on creating a space that invites and inspires, the resort has invested an impressive US $8.3 million in redeveloping its 42 award-winning Deluxe Beach Villas, which also launch this month.
