How do you like to dine with fishes all around you? It sounds good to me! You can do it at the world’s first all-glass undersea restaurant in Hilton Maldives.
The Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa has recently opened the Ithaa Undersea restaurant, which is indeed underwater. A blogger at Table of Malcontents seemed rather disgusted at the prospect of dining in an establishment where there were fish swimming around everywhere, but personally I think it’d be pretty cool. The cuisine is described as “Maldivian-Western fusion,” which sounds good to me as long as there’s some tasty calamari on the menu.
The Ithaa Restaurant sits 15 feet below the Indian Ocean, surrounded by the beautiful coral reef. It is encased in clear acrylic, offering diners 270 degrees of panoramic underwater views. The restaurant is reached by a wooden walkway from the nearby over-water Sunset Grill Restaurant, and seats just 14 people for an exclusive dining experience.
