Ithaa, the undersea restaurant
Conrad Maldives Rangali, is an elegant luxury resort set on two beautiful islands separated by the crystal clear ocean and a bridge. The two idyllic islands are crowded by natural rich greenery and tall palm trees swaying in the wing. You will spot elegance in every corner of this luxury resort and an astonishing hidden underwater beauty. Conrad is one of the best dive resorts in Maldives because of its intoxicating underwater attractions. What makes this resort more exciting is Ithaa, the undersea restaurant.
Ithaa was opened in 2005 and means ‘mother of pearl’ in the Maldivian language, Dhivehi. This undersea restaurant was designed and constructed by a design consultancy based in New Zealand called M.J. Murphy Ltd. The roof is transparent and curved with 180-degree panoramic underwater view and is encased in R-Cast acrylic, located 16 feet beneath sea level. To enter the world’s first undersea glass restaurant which has room for 14 people altogether, guests will have to walk down a spiral staircase set on the end of a jetty in a thatched pavilion. Ithaa, the undersea restaurant offers only lunch and dinner which guests can enjoy while spotting beautiful sea creatures such as sting rays, sharks, groupers, turtles, cichlids, white fish and tropical fishes.
This romantic restaurant set underwater will be an experience of a lifetime, especially for those who hasn’t gone scuba diving. Apart from Ithaa, the undersea restaurant which is first of its kind, Conrad Maldives Rangali was also the first resort to build a wine cellar underground, the first resort to create a cheese bar and the first resort to invite world-class chefs and winemakers. Other innovative ideas by this luxury resort includes a three person submarine and the first swimming pool suspended directly over the ocean in Maldives.
Conrad Maldives Rangali provides special holiday offers and all-inclusive packages for a cheap yet luxury vacation in Maldives.
