    This restaurant is singular. But it is also quite famous in Maldives, and not really "Off the Path". This Explo is a too commercial!

Ithaa – The first underwater restaurant of its kind in the world, set five metres below sea level, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef, is the only all-glass undersea restaurant in the world.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience offers views of endless marine life swimming around while being served a combination of western cuisine fused with Maldivian flavours from a carefully selected degustation menu.

My experience, Explo description: 

The first ever all-glass underwater restaurant in the world opened on April 15, 2005 at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort and Spa (formerly the Hilton Rangali Island is an amazing underwater restaurant called Ithaa, meaning Pearl in the local Dhivehi language. The underwater restaurant is very exclusive, seating only 14 people. The dining is a contemporary fusion of Maldivian cuisine with western and Asian influences.

The Ithaa underwater restaurant is built 16 feet (5 metres) below the waves of the Indian Ocean, and is housed under a transparent acrylic ceiling, through which guests can see the ocean and its creatures. The aquarium-style tunnel gives diners 270-degree views of the aquatic panorama.

The underwater restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, and the prices range from $120 to $250. Ithaa is one of the Conrad Maldives’ nine restaurants, all of which serve spectacular dishes from a variety of cuisines. The food at Ithaa Underwater Restaurant is perhaps a little more basic than at the resort’s other restaurants, but here you are paying for the experience and the location rather than the food.

The most commonly-sighted creatures from the underwater restaurant are the Giant Moray Eel, Stingray and a wide variety of reef-dwelling fish. The restaurant actually feeds the fish close by the restaurant, so it’s no wonder there are always fish bumbling around.

Dine 16 feet below sea level at Ithaa, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island's unique undersea restaurant. Marvel at 270° views of reef and marine life, sip champagne cocktails and sample Maldivian-Western fusion cuisine at this spectacular Maldives venue – the world’s first all-glass, undersea restaurant.

Immerse in the pleasures of the pristine Ithaa underwater restaurant of its kind in the world. Discover the exotic views of endless marine life swimming around while being served a combination of western cuisine fused with Maldivian flavours from a carefully selected degustation menu.
