Underwater Hotel Room At Reefsuites Has Views Of The Great Barrier Reef

Underwater Hotel Room At Reefsuites Has Views Of The Great Barrier Reef

Travel may be a little trickier than usual during the pandemic - but that won't stop us dreaming of our next adventure.

One destination going straight on our bucket list is the jaw-dropping Reefsuites, where guests can stay in stunning glass-walled rooms giving glorious underwater views of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

Offered by marine tourism agency Cruise Whitsundays, Reefsuites is Australia's first underwater accommodation on the Great Barrier Reef.

Submerged below the water on the Reefworld Pontoon, the slick suites look out on the coral bays of Hardy Reef.

From the comfort of their suite, guests can look out on the 1,500 types of fish that live in the world's largest reef system, watching as giant shoals flicker through the water and giant Groupers float by.

Travel blogger Hayley Lewis, who goes by @alovelyplanet on Instagram, captured her experience at the Reefsuites, calling it "an unforgettable night underwater".

Captioning her post "a room with a different kind of view" she wrote: "The reef certainly comes to life at night, and we were able to view some of the larger inhabitants up close, including this giant Grouper!"

"We spent hours just staring out the window watching them swim by," she added.

With rooms starting at £443 (AUD $799) pp for a double room, a stay at Reefsuites doesn't come cheap - but looking at these photos, we can see why.

There's also the option to explore the reef with resident dive masters to see reef sharks and rays.
