Amazing The first underwater restaurant of its kind in the world!!!

Amazing The first underwater restaurant of its kind in the world!!!

Ithaa means “pearl” in the language of the Maldives, Dhivehi. And this pearl located within the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa in Rangali Island. It is the first ever all-glass underwater restaurant in the world, secured five meters below sea level. The dining is a contemporary fusion of Maldivian cuisine with western and Asian influences.

This first aquarium-style undersea restaurant was designed by MJ Murphy Ltd in New Zealand and constructed in Singapore with materials from the United States, then shipped to the Maldives and was opened on April 15, 2005. The Ithaa Restaurant sits 15 feet below the waves of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a coral reef and encased in clear acrylic walls and roof, similar to those used in aquarium attractions, offering diners 270-degrees of panoramic underwater views.

The award-winning Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa became Conrad Maldives Rangali Island on 18 December 2007. This is in line with Conrad’s positioning as the luxury brand within the Hilton Family, with services and facilities at this wonderful resort being even further enhanced. Meals range in cost from US$120.00 (lunch for hotel guests on Full Board meal plan) to US$250.00 (dinner for hotel guests on Bed & Breakfast meal plan).
