Want to be lulled into sleep by the sound of water? These resorts give new meaning to the term "sea view". Some are docked on water, others are mobile and some partly submerged in the water. Here are five of the most amazing floating hotels in the world:

Floating in the middle of a lake is Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur, Indiaas reported in CNN. A spectral white mansion in the middle of the lake, it was made into a backdrop for a movie. Guests are brought by private jetty and they are greeted with champagne and attendants with umbrellas to escort them inside. There are 66 rooms and 17 suites all with views of the lake. A special sightseeing tour of Udaipur City can be arranged onboard a vintage 1948 Jaguar.

The Manta Resort is is located on Pemba Island off Tanzania and Zanzibar's mainland. The watertight room is located 250 meters off shore in a federally protected zone in the Indian Ocean. It has a Swedish-designed underwater bedroom which was seven years in the making. It has glass walls and submerged 13 feet, offering views to hundreds of marine species. The structure attracts fish and spotlights attract octopus and squid. It is perfect for romantics, with its views of corals and dancing sea slugs.

Good Hotel London in the UK is located in London's Royal Victoria Docks where it will stay for the next 5 years. It has 148 rooms and has a rooftop terrace garden with the view of the river Thames. The rooms have dark walls and solid raw-wood furniture which are paired with fabrics in neutral tones. The hotel was opened only late last year. It was a former detention center for illegal immigrants.

Located off Seine, The Urban Hotel in Paris is near the Gare d'Austerlitz and is moored at the foot of the Austerlitz station. One can take a swim in the onboard pool or enjoy tapas and cocktails in the bar. The rooms are designed around the famous Paris sunset. The hotel was launched only June last year.

The Diving Hotel: Elite Diving Agency's Liveaboard is located in the Maldives. One can scuba dive, search for whale sharks, swim with mantas or be pampered at the spa.Different from the usual bungalows on the beach in maldives, it is a diving boat converted into a hotel. It sails on to another location on the second week, so one has to know the schedule beforehand.
