What better way to follow up yesterday's story on the latest Space Hotel with an update on the progress of another ambitious category of hotels? Underwater Hotels!

Fortunately for you adventure-seekers, underwater hotels seem to be more "do-able" than Space Hotels. While Istanbul, Dubai and the Bahamas have still not opened their planned underwater hotels, we have seen an underwater suite open at the Conrad Maldives.

We discovered this place way back in 2003 and it looks like not much has changed since then or since the hotel first opened (as evidenced by this photo found on their website.)
