The world’s largest overwater villas have been unveiled in Soneva Fushi, located in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa atoll in Maldives.

The one-bedroom and two-bedroom overwater villas were opened on Friday in the luxury resort.

The eight suites, called ‘Water Room’s boast floors lined with glass panels allowing consumers to enjoy the spectacular view of corals and vibrant fish. The large one-bedroom suites measure 6,286 square feet and the two-bedroom villas measure 9,224 square feet, boasting private outdoors bathtubs, sun loungers by the pools, exciting waterslides, retractable roofs and artsy wooden porches. These water slides are also featured in Soneva Jani of the luxury resort chain.

The one-bedroom water villas cost up to USD 2,626 per night and the two-bedroom villas are worth USD 5,332 per night.

Following unveiling, the suites are open for booking.

The property is also home to multiple restaurants including a chocolate room, a kids club, a scuba-diving reef as well as tennis courts and the largest outdoor movie screen in the Indian Ocean region.

Maldives reopened borders for international travel on July 15, a little over three months since halting issuance of on-arrival visas on March 27. The island nation has been welcoming tourists under the guideline that they remain in the pre-booked destination throughout their stay. So far, over 16,000 tourists have arrived in the island nation since border reopening.
