 Who needs a penthouse in the clouds when you can have the ocean all to yourself? A new hotel off the coast of Tanzania is now letting its guests drift at sea in a luxurious self-contained room.

The Manta Resort’s underwater “room” floats near Pemba Island in the Indian Ocean. For $750 a night, guests are dropped off at the half-submerged structure where they can sunbathe on deck before plunging four meters below the surface to the bedroom, according to the New York Daily News.

The Swedish firm Genberg Underwater Hotels designed the suite, which is only the latest underwater novelty to open of late. Recently, Polish developers unveiled plans to build a futuristic luxury hotel in the Maldives that will feature a lower deck that sinks 30-meters below the surface. [NYDN]Christopher Cameron
