In 2005, architect Ahmed Saleem deferred his dreams and settled for opening the world’s first underwater restaurant, Ithaa, at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort. At Ithaa, diners can eat five-star cuisine, five meters under the Indian Ocean, watching sharks and blue tangs swim past as they dine under an acrylic canopy. It’s an architectural marvel that would be the highlight of many designers’ resumes, but not for Mr. Saleem, as he is known around the resort. What Mr. Saleem really wanted to build was an underwater bedroom where he could spend the night dreaming under the sea and wake under the waves. This year, he finally got his dream in The Muraka, an all-glass hotel room that sits 16.5 feet under sea level.

Innovation lies at the heart of Rangali Island: The resort was the first hotelier in the Maldives to perch villas on stilts above the water, the first to open an underwater restaurant, and now they are the first to sink a residence into the briny depths. The Muraka, which translates to “coral” in the local language, Dhivehi, is made of steel, concrete, and acrylic, and designed with the local ecosystem in mind. (The hotel has marine biologists on staff to ensure that the sunken villa has minimal impact on the surrounding coral.)

The entire lower suite was built on land in Singapore, fittingly made of acrylic from Japan’s premiere aquarium manufacturer Nippura Co., and sealed with Shin Etsu Marine sealant, which was used in the construction of Ithaa Undersea Restaurant. Then the 600-ton structure was hoisted by crane onto a specialized ship that could transport it to the Maldives and moor near the reef without damaging it. It was then submerged into the ocean and held firmly in place by 10 concrete piles that ensure it will not move or shift due to a high tide or rough seas.

From there it was just a question of connecting the suite’s upper and lower levels and transforming the space from an acrylic tube into a luxurious vacation destination. That was done by Yuji Yamazaki Architecture, a Tokyo design firm, which created a seamless upstairs-downstairs space. The upper level is made of glass walls that offer views of the waves, a private jetty, infinity pool, and secluded decks. Guests can either take an elevator or follow a spiral staircase down, like Alice’s rabbit hole, to descend into a watery wonderland. There the curved ceiling, wide windows, and fish peep show bathroom make for a once-in-a-lifetime experience for anyone with mermaid dreams. Sleep with the fish, drink coffee with the coral, and some lucky residents might even glimpse turtles, stingrays, or even sharks staring disapprovingly through the glass.

Of course, once-in-a-lifetime experiences don’t come cheap. At around $50,000 night—technically, a four-night vacation package of around $200,000—the price tag for a vacation under the sea is hefty. However, it is much more than just a hotel room. Guests at The Muraka are flown in on a private seaplane that lands at their own private jetty or picked up from the main resort in a speedboat that’s theirs to use for the rest of their stay. The Muraka itself is perched out in the ocean, far from the Conrad’s beach villas and over-water bungalows, for maximum privacy. The suite comes with dedicated staff, including a butler and a chef, to facilitate round-the-clock service, and everything else from massage therapists to facialists to trainers can be arranged and included in the (hefty) price tag. Guests are also awarded Diamond Honors Hilton status after booking the suite as a little souvenir of the stay, although the experience will undoubtedly be unforgettable. conradmaldives.com

The limestone clad mansion in Bel Air owned by the late TV executive Jerry Perenchio just got a price cut.

But at $245 million, the commanding French neoclassical residence, which measures 25,000 square feet, is still the most expensive listing on the open market in the U.S.

The property, which came up for sale last year for a staggering $350 million, has long been the cream of the crop among high-end estates.

Named Chartwell, the residence was built in 1933 by Sumner Spaulding, the architect who also designed the famed Greenacres Estate in Beverly Hills and the Catalina Casino.

Chartwell was famously used as the lavish mansion inhabited by the Clampett family on The Beverly Hillbillies in the 1960s.

The main residence shares the property, which measures more than 10 acres, with elaborate gardens, fountains, expansive lawns, a 75-foot swimming pool, and a five-bedroom guesthouse designed by Wallace Neff.

The LA area holds a number of houses listed for sale at more than $100 million.

Just last week, the chairman of LA’s Olympics committee, sports executive Casey Wasserman, listed his house in Beverly Hills for $125 million.

A Beverly Hills estate once home to William Randolph Hearst returned to the market earlier this month for $135 million.

A 105,000-square-foot mega-mansion built on spec, also in Bel Air, has a ridiculous $500 million price tag, but it’s not listed on the open market.

The county record-holder for most expensive sale is held by a Malibu house sold this year for $110 million.

Chartwell is now for sale on the open market. It’s listed with Jeff Hyland, Drew Fenton, and Gary Gold of Hilton and Hyland; Jade Mills, Joyce Rey, and Alexandra Allen of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury; and Drew Gitlin and Susan Gitlin of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services.

Zoë Robinson’s I Fratellini reopened last week after a week-long refresh of its interior. Designer David Kent Richardson, in close collaboration with Robinson, led the Clayton restaurant’s subtle revamp.

Robinson is quick to point out that this is not a remodel, but rather a refresh of the restaurant’s décor. “The configuration is all the same. It’s just like putting on a new dress—it’s still you,” she says. “People feel an ownership over I Fratellini, they feel possessive of it, because it’s been there for so long. It has become an institution and I didn’t want to change things too much.”

Robinson says that with Richardson’s input—the two have been long-time friends and collaborators—choosing how to update the space without completely changing its look and feel was not difficult.

“These are things we talk about every day,” says Robinson. “It was narrowing things down, which was more difficult than anything. Keeping the integrity of the place was at the forefront.”

Seventeen years ago, Richardson and Robinson worked together to design the Italian eatery at its conception. In the interim years, the two have collaborated on Robinson’s nearby restaurants, Bar Les Freres and most recently at Billie | Jean.

Throughout the years, the duo has made small tweaks to I Fratellini’s decor. With this latest refresh they wanted a more dramatic update, without it feeling too radical. “Quite frankly, after walking in there every day for 17 years, she was tired of looking at the same old stuff,” says Richardson. He calls the revamped interior “a subtle seduction with a respectable amount of aggression.”

The changes include an introduction of Louboutin red in specific areas around the restaurant. “It’s just like the soles of those shoes. It’s just so subtle,” says the designer. The two elected to whitewash the brick walls, using a high-gloss finish on the ceiling for contrast. The woodwork has been stained a shade darker, and new, 100-pound light fixtures from Flos called Skygarden have been added.

 

“It looks pretty damn sexy. And I hate using that word,” says Richardson.

The red is also a nod to artist Pierno Fornasetti, who used the color in his artwork. Plates depicting Fornasetti’s muse, the opera singer Lina Cavalieri, adorn a wall.

The two say the refresh is subtle, but dramatic.

“I don’t want to make it sound like everything is exactly the same,” says Robinson. “But it is—intentionally so.”
