I rarely suffer from insomnia, but last night, I was wide awake.
And yet, even as I lie there, eyes wide open, I was not inspired to spend the night amongst the fishes.
The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Hotel is celebrating its fifth anniversary by transforming its underwater restaurant into an exclusive suite for two. Tired of traditional hotel rooms? Sleep instead under the waters of the Indian Ocean…and 125mm thick glass walls.
Lie in bed, sip champagne and watch the sea life swim above your head before retiring for the night. Then enjoy breakfast in bed in the morning.
I know this is supposed to sound ideal — and the photos are lovely — but I get claustrophobic at the mere thought of all that water rushing above my head.
Breathtaking? Yes! My breath…as the glass walls shatter, and the waves come crashing in and sweep me away.
This isn’t an idyllic vacation. It’s the premise for the next disaster picture…and I’m the unsuspecting tourist who meets her tragic end.
Yep. Still not sleepy.
