Ithaa Undersea Restaurant

Ithaa Undersea Restaurant

This is first underwater restaurant in the world. Located five meters below the sea level diners can enjoy Maldivian and western fusion cuisines here. It was constructed in Singapore and then transported to the Maldives in 2004. A dining experience at Ithaa is hard to forget, the curved all glass setting with the blue waters and shimmering fish, sharks and turtles is not something you see everyday. The prices here are obviously quite high but every dining experience here is unique and what you spend is well worth it.
