Top 5 Coolest Underwater Places

5. Hotel Conrad Rangali Island Maldives

If you are planning for that ultimate honeymoon whose memories are to be etched into your minds forever, here comes the award winning Hotel Conrad Rangali Island Maldives with its exciting honeymoon- suite for all you newlyweds.

Being one of the finest hotels in the world it already swaggers of having several luxurious villas, striking beach villas and marvelous spa water villas. But the honeymoon suite is something that will sure make you fall for it. After all, who wouldn’t love to spend a night underneath the sea with panoramic views of the marine life?
4. Poseidon Undersea Resort

Giving the phrase “Under the sea” a whole new meaning, the Poseidon Undersea Resort($15,000 and up) lets you rest underneath the waves in a room made mostly of acrylic glass. Located in Fiji, the resort offers guests private plane transportation from a Fijian airport to the Poseidon Mystery Island, where they’ll enjoy a week’s stay — including two nights in the underwater hotel, with a three-passenger Triton 1000 submarine at their disposal. With a coral reef to explore, beach bungalows for above-sea level accommodations, an underwater library, wedding chapel, restaurants, and more, it’s an out-of-this-world experience just 40 feet below the surface.
3. Red Sea Star Restaurant

The Red Sea Star has been receiving extensive coverage throughout the world since its establishment, especially because of the unique concept it was based on, its exceptional construction process, its fascinating interior design and the fact that it is a “green” project, which contributes profoundly to the preservation of the coral reef surrounding it.
The Red Sea Star was constructed by first line experts using special resources and equipment imported from all around the world. The underwater floor of the complex is shaped like a star, displaying a fascinating marine-world interior design admired throughout the world. The underwater floor functions as an observatory, in which the underwater restaurant and bar are located.
The Red Sea Star enables you to “sense the sea” through a “dry diving experience” and to discover the magnificent and exciting underwater world of the Red Sea. A breathtaking view of hundreds of various tropical sea creatures in the colorful coral garden is seen through 62 panoramic amorphous windows surrounding the observatory, located five meters below the sea level.

2. Jules’ Underwater Lodge

What began as La Chalupa Research Laboratory in Key Largo, Florida, is now Jules’ Undersea Lodge (though it still has the fully operational Marine Lab). To enter the lodge, guest must dive down 21 feet through the Emerald Lagoon with trained professionals leading the way. Located five feet above the bottom of the Mangrove lagoon, the lodge has a common room to keep guests entertained, as well as a fully stocked kitchen, dining area and communication center.
1. Grenada’s Underwater Sculpture Park

Meet the first Sculpture Park in Grenada. Located at Molinere Bay, the original sculptures were designed by British sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor, who is working on a similar project in the waters around Cancun. Officials say the sculptures have had a positive impact on the underwater ecosystem by allowing for the creation of artificial reefs. Snorkelling or diving in the Sculpture Park is considered a ‘must do’ by many visitors to Grenada.
