Tea under the seaMaldives
Take dining to a whole new level at Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, the world's first all-glass underwater restaurant. One of 12 restaurants at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort, it's located five metres below the surface and has panoramic views of the surrounding coral gardens.
Wrap up (the aquatic tunnel can get chilly) and munch through the tasting menu while schools of clownfish dart just beyond the glass. Dine at night on the six-course prix fixe menu featuring contemporary European cuisine and watch as bigger fish and predators arrive. Just try to ignore that Patagonian toothfish eyeing you off – you’re probably eating his cousin.
It goes without saying that dining at an underwater restaurant puts a huge dent in your wallet (US$320 a person for dinner), but the consensus? You won’t regret it.
