The world's largest overwater villa has just opened in the Maldives.

On the second floor, there's a dining room with a fully stocked fridge to keep you satisfied at all times.

The retractable roof is over the master bedroom so guests can gaze at the stars.

If you're not really into swimming in the open sea, there's a private pool too.

For the price staying at this pad, a one-bedroom costs from £2,066 a night, while for a two-bedroom villa it's £4,117.
