It’s a perpetual conundrum that draws us in as much as it terrifies us. So much so that we’ll seek out the 9 best underwater hotels just to sleep closer to this enchanting vixen.

Niyama, Maldives

Subsix is the first club constructed completely underwater, in a testament to how foolish, dangerous, and remarkable human beings can be.

2

Atlantis The Palm, Dubai

Split between full resort enjoyment for the true tourist, and a 1,500 room hotel, what makes it most notable are its watery suites sitting beneath the waves where you can stare out into the Ambassador lagoon.

The Manta Resort, Pemba Island, Zanzibar

There’s no shortage of garden rooms and relaxing getaways attached to the Manta Resort.

4

Resort World Sentosa, Singapore

The suites are devised as two-story townhouses that let you view the 40,000 varieties of fish, but also has an upper level devoted to land-lubber living, complete with Jacuzzis and other standard five-star pampering.

5

Utter Inn, Västerås, Sweden
