Underwater Dining

Have you ever imagined having dinner 15 feet below sea level?

While most restaurants opt for paintings or wall decor, Ithaa Undersea Restaurant in the Maldives has gone above and beyond (or should I say below and beyond). Nestled deep down in the Indian Ocean, surrounded by stunning coral reefs and encased in clear acrylic, this little jewel is the first underwater restaurant of its kind. Guests can sample the contemporary fusion Maldivian cuisine with western and asian influences while enjoying the 270 degrees of panoramic undersea views. Moray eels and blue-faced angelfish are among some of the creatures that glide through the lagoon around you while dinner is being served.

This restaurant can only be reached by a wooden walkway from a nearby over-water restaurant located within the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. I'm assuming one must make reservations well in advance as the restaurant only seats 14 people at a time. So when that average ocean view just isn't cutting it, one can always escape into the deep blue sea without even getting wet. I haven't been to the Maldives yet, but it's been added to my travel list today.
