The underwater "bridal chamber" in Maldives Luxury Resort.

After retrofitting, the restaurant turned into a room specially prepared for the newlyweds.

Lying on the room bed in the hotel, you will be able to view marine creatures in the Maldives Luxury Resort. That’s not a dream. It is true. However, the cost to achieve this dream is not cheap. And the guests should afford the pay of more than $10,000 for one night.

According to the reports of British Daily Mail, one hotel which is located in the Indian Ocean resort, Conrad Maldives Luxury Resort has introduced such underwater room at the cost of a high price. It’s reported that the suit of room was constructed in the underwater Maldives near the Island Laniary. The roof was built of the transparent glass, so the guests can enjoy watching the fish sweeping near the islands. However, this room was originally a restaurant called Ithaa. To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Conrad Maldives Luxury Resort, it was converted into a suite for the newlyweds. Over there, the newlyweds can spend a romantic wedding night.

The unique character of the high price suite room also reflects in its high housing prices. At present, the hotel hasn’t given the certain price codes. If the guests are interested, they can contact the hotel / tour operator before two weeks in advance to arrange the accommodation. Currently, the most expensive room in this hotel priced $5,700 for one night. But the room is still up on the water. Therefore, we have the reason to believe that the price of this underwater suite room won’t be less than $10,000.

Show Luo treats mum & colleagues to a luxury vacation in Maldives

Taiwanese singer Show Luo treated a luxury holiday trip to Maldives with his mum and colleagues.

According to the Taiwanese media, Show treated his mother and 27 colleagues from his management company to a four-day vacation in the Maldives. The generous artiste took care of all the expenses which set him back about NT$5.13 million (approximately $120,000).
Show and his colleagues were mesmerised by the beautiful white sands and crystal-clear sea the moment they arrived in the Maldives.

The resort upgraded Show’s guest room to a 200-square-metre luxurious suite surrounded by the sea, which he shared with 6 other close friends. The suite allowed them to dive from the balcony into the sea, which made Show exclaim: “This is heaven on earth!” in amazement.
The guest rooms arranged for the rest of the group were equally impressive – each with a large bedroom, balcony and private swimming pool. They also had a special bathtub with a transparent base that allowed guests to view the fishes in the sea right beneath them.
Show competed with his colleagues in a “diving competition” every day and even made a bet with one of his colleagues that if he could dive into the sea, Show would pay for the rental fee of the snorkeling equipment.

Although the colleague was game, he lamented that he was “too unlucky” as he could not snorkel after his back was scratched by coral reefs while diving.
Besides snorkeling, Show and his mother also went parachuting from 200 metres up.
Show also treated the entire group to a dinner at an expensive underwater restaurant which allows diners to view the sea creatures while dining.
Show’s colleagues praised the artiste for his generosity and joked, “He should feel like dying when footing the bill!”

‘Look! The houses are made of Lego!’ exclaims the young boy behind me as we swoop onto the runway on Male, the capital island of the Maldives. He is not wrong - the buildings do indeed look like brightly coloured blocks, jumbled together in a concentration. It is the first, and last, built-up area I’ll see for a while.

From the skies I was greeted by polka dot islands scattered across blue water punctuated only with bright bursts of white sand surrounding lush green centres. Oft described as paradise, my first glimpse of the Maldives certainly seems on point. Childlike-glee is appropriate, whatever your age.
I find it hard to wipe the inane grin from my face as we jump onto a seaplane and take to the skies again, this time heading 320km north to Iruveli, our island destination in the Maldives’ northern-most atoll, Haa Alif.

The Real Hustle star's hubby Lee Stafford proudly posted the snap of his new missus soaking up the sun during their honeymoon on Twitter earlier this week.
Hairdresser Lee, 46, added the pic, showing Jessica lounging on a giant sofa minus her bikini top, to his page, and wrote: "Your not sunbathing topless are you?"
The happy couple, who wed just two weeks ago, have been updating their followers with numerous Twitter pics and posts since jetting off on their two-part honeymoon a fortnight ago.

Bikini babe ... Jessica-Jane Clement
Following their fairytale wedding at Belvoir Castle, in Leicestershire, the newlyweds headed to Dubai for a few days before moving on to the Maldives.
In Dubai, where topless sunbathing in public places is forbidden, former I'm A Celeb star Jessica, 28, informed her fans that she was having to keep her bikini top on.
She wrote: "Sat by the pool in sunny Dubai with my husband :) If paradise existed, this would be it. Too bad my top has to stay on though!! #ReleaseUs!"
But it was clear from Lee's sexy snap that she didn't have the same problem when she arrived at her luxury bungalow sat over the sea in the Maldives.

'I want one' ... Jessica-Jane Clement told her followers she was
 'addicted' to sea viewing hole in her room
And Lee hasn't been the only one posting bikini snaps of his wife on the web, she also added a shot of herself posing in a tiny black two-piece and wearing a belly chain.
She wrote alongside the image: "My new belly chain!! Thank you @leestaffordhair. Best husband :) x."
Another snap showed the pretty brunette sitting above the sea viewing hole in her room.

'Lobster' ... Lee Stafford needs to remember to put on a bit more sun tan lotion
And she told her followers: "I'm addicted to this sea hole thing in our room!! I want one!!"
While hubby Lee took to his Twitter page to reveal he had perhaps caught a few too many rays during their getaway.
He added a pic showing his rather red torso with the caption: "Mr Lobster Lobster.."


A Glimpse of Ancient Maldives

Loading Maldives Offers....
In the Maldivian Lounge, located on the first floor behind the Sails Bar, are several maps depicting the Maldives in historical times. Two of the maps are copperplate engravings, one with contemporary hand colouring, of the islands as a British cartographer, Robert Morden, visualised them 325 years ago.

Robert Morden (1650-1703) was a British bookseller,  publisher, and maker of maps and globes. He was among the first successful commercial map makers and specialised in maps of England. His rare map of the Maldives was accompanied with a remarkable description of the Maldives in the 17th century.

In the quaint printing style of the 17th century (where the letter “s” appears like the letter “f”) he states: “The Maldives Islands derive their name from the principal city, called Male, and Dive which signifies an island. “There are reckoned to be about 12,000, but that is supposed to be only by taking a certain number for an uncertain. They are dispersed from the north-west to the south-east, into 13 provinces, which the inhabitants call Attollons, every one of which is fenced with a bank of sand; but some of them are only sand hills, or rocks, being all of them very little, for Male, the chief, is but a league about...

“The natives are little, olive coloured and Mahumetans. their cocos are very profitable to them, for of those they make honey, sugar and milk. They eat almonds instead of bread...To preserve their wares from vermin, they build storehouses upon piles in the sea, about an 100 paces from the isles.”

Today, at Baros, those ‘storehouses upon piles’ have been superseded by luxury overwater villas, and wine comes from around the world. Many of us overlook the fascinating history of the Maldives but as the ancient maps and accounts reveal, they have intrigued and delighted visitors since time began.
