Ithaa Undersea Restaurant

Dining at Ithaa, the first underwater restaurant in the world, is an experience that people would find hard to forget and get over.
Ithaa, which means mother-of-pearl in Dhivehi, is the very first undersea restaurant in the world located 5 metres below sea level at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.The 5-by-9-metre mostly acrylic structure has a capacity of 14 people and is encased in R-Cast acrylic with a transparent roof offering a 270° panoramic underwater view. The restaurant was designed and constructed by M.J. Murphy Ltd. - a design consultancy based in New Zealand - and was opened on April 15, 2005. Food served in the restaurant has evolved over the years and is now best described as contemporary European with Asian influences.
