Underwater Room
Live Out Your Most Unique Tropical Fantasies with a Stay at an Underwater Suite
Jake Kilroy
by Jake Kilroy

 

We’ve all dreamed about life under the sea. Catchy Disney songs aside, we’ve grown up fantasizing about holding our breaths longer—or simply being able to breathe like a fish—so we could stay the cool wilderness of an underwater world. Such a power would give us the opportunity to explore deep sea caves, witness existence in the depths of the ocean, behold some of the most colorful wildlife on the planet, and meditate in an expansive, noiseless, and relaxing space. This week’s #BirthdayBucketList is about finally making good on that wild hope.

At The Manta Resort on Tanzania’s Pemba Island, you get the closest you ever will to your wish. Here, you can stay underwater for hours, days, or weeks! That's because off the coast is a breathtaking underwater room of windows with a very soft bed in it. Turquoise waves roll around the Swedish-engineered floating structure just above the reef floor, and you get to be a part of it. You get to live underwater without having to worry about oxygen levels. Simply put, it’s the hotel room we’ve always dreamed of, ever since we were kids.

"Some places stay with you forever. When wildlife photographer Nina and her Sebastian asked me to shoot their wedding in Masai Mara in Kenya, I didn’t know this land would touch me so deeply. It sung to me in a way I didn’t know possible, found new chords and played on strings I didn’t know I had inside me. The setting was like no other." - Jonas Peterson, photographer.

If you were glued to the television for this past Sunday night’s VMAs, you saw Taylor Swift debut the video for her new song “Wildest Dreams." Since the debut it is already under fire for being a racially insensitive "fantasy" depiction of colonial Africa. The "Wildest Dreamsvideo was Directed by Joseph Kahn, and captures an old Hollywood Hemingway vibe. Featuring Taylor (of course) and Scott Eastwood (son of famous actor Clint Eastwood), the video tells a story between Swift and Eastwood, who both play 1940s-era movie stars.

The video has already been viewed almost 21 million times, and apart from the buzz and controversy, there is no denying the stunning film location. So where was Taylors highly controversial video shot?
