The Maldives is set to become home to the world’s largest underwater restaurant, with the opening of a luxury, five-star, adults-only resort. When the Hurawalhi Island Resort opens this November, one of its attractions will be the “5.8” undersea restaurant named after its watery location: The unusual dining destination is set 5.8 meters (i.e. 18 feet) below a lagoon. To visit the restaurant, guests enter a little hut on the jetty and climb down a spiral staircase.
The restaurant, which seats up to 16, will allow diners to take in their marine surroundings through a transparent, domed ceiling as they enjoy a multi-course tasting menu.
Overseeing the resort’s cuisine is executive chef Shannon Batten, a New Zealander who has cooked for Bill Clinton, the British royals, Rod Stewart, Bob Geldof, Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, and foreign heads of state.
Delicate and delicious dishes plus blue undersea views make you the memorable experience. If you are going to Maldives with your darling, remember to visit there.
