You probably want to visit the Manta Resort, a new getaway in Zanzibar — because, at the Manta Resort, you can actually get away from the getaway and stay a few hundred metres offshore in a floating hotel room. And then you can get away again in the underwater bedroom built for watching fish.

The Underwater Room is exactly what it sounds like. The tiny floating island features three levels for lucky holidaymakers. On the water level, there's space for lounging and dining, while a sun deck above makes for great tanning and even better stargazing at night.

The room's real allure is underwater where the bedroom sits 4m beneath the surface. With windows on all sides and lights to illuminate the water at night, you can peer out into the Indian Ocean and see everything from trumpet fish to octopus float by. Gives new meaning to the idea of sleeping with the fishes, huh?

This unique experience does not come cheap at $US1500 a night. But that also buys you full access to the rest of the resort on land. The exotic location is also great for scuba diving as well as safaris. But, seriously, your own floating island with an underwater bedroom? Why would you ever leave?

Oh, and in case you had any doubts about having the place to yourself, this is what it looks like on Google Maps... [PSFK via Telegraph]

    Nice... Too bad if there was some rough weather when you get there though. I can't see them letting you stay out there in rough water... erm...refund please..! :)

      I see what you mean but. if they did let you stay out there i think it would much more interesting than good weather!

    What about the toilets? When someone flushes, where does it that go to? Or would you see it floating past your bedroom window?

      The "brown fin bombers" are not edible.... :)

    I would say there's a container that still gets serviced by house keeping after your stay. Electricity and possible generator noise is more of a concern

    1500 a night US for that. is pretty fucking reasonable! would be nice

    And just down from the Somalia pirate super-highway... Great place to be alone on the ocean.
