Back in the day when you used to go on school excursion to the aquarium, the best part would often be the shark tunnel. The underwater tunnel would leave you in awe, your young brain unable to comprehend the epic creatures that were swimming just above. If memories of those moments have stuck with you, here’s a chance to experience it all again.
Ithaa Undersea Restaurant in the Maldives takes the tunnel experience and flips it on it’s head. Instead of a bland aquarium, you can now dine in complete luxury with your potential dinner floating just outside. Sitting five metres below the surface of the crystal blue sea, the European styled restaurant offers 180-degree views of the colourful environment surrounding it. With the six course set lunch and dinner menus featuring everything from lobster to foie gras, it’s a great way to take in the depths. They also do excellent mid-morning cocktails, perfect for numbing the fear of sharks.
