One of the most astounding undersea restaurants, Ithaa, is located at the Hilton Maldives Resort and Spa at Rangalifinolhu, Maldives. With a capacity of about fourteen people, the Ithaa undersea restaurant is in fact the first underwater restaurant of the world that offers a fine transparent acrylic roof providing a 270 degree outstanding view to the guests. The entire innovation as well as the creation of the restaurant was done by New Zealand’s popular design consultancy, MJ Murphy Ltd.
If you are in Ithaa, give a sparkling start to your meal with a refreshing cocktail. You can always enjoy the cocktail on the specially arranged deck of the restaurant.

The outstanding views of the colorful fish and the sharks around the reef will simply stir your senses.
The acrylic tunnel located within the premises of the restaurant was designed first for the largest aquarium tunnel of the world known as Kuala Lumpur National Science Centre. About five million dollars were spent to construct this beautiful undersea restaurant, Ithaa. Today, the restaurant rests about five meters below the sea level and stands at quite a secured position under the sea.
