The World's Coolest Underwater Hotel Rooms-Trip Advise


If you thought sleeping inside a giant aquarium was extraordinary, how about bedding down in the world’s largest tropical coral reef? Two new glass-walled hotel suites have opened beneath the waves of Australia's Coral Sea, offering marine lovers a window onto the myriad wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Billed as Australia’s first underwater hotel, the Reefsuites opened in December 2019 just off Hardy Reef near the Whitsundays archipelago.

The submerged suites are suspended beneath Reefworld, a permanently moored floating pontoon that lies 40 nautical miles from Airlie Beach and is managed by tour operator Cruise Whitsundays. The double bedroom suites have large reinforced glass windows with lights that can be switched on when it's dark so guests can see what lurks beneath at night. Likely sightings from the bed and bathroom include trevally, coral trout, snapper, giant maori wrasse, Queensland gropers, turtles, reef sharks and barracuda.
