Ithaa Undersea Restaurant

Man is drawn to the sea. Perhaps, because it’s the last great unexplored territory on Earth. Perhaps because of the endless varieties of life that are so different than what we find on land. Whatever the case, the world is mostly ocean and we are ever drawn to its shores.

In the Republic of Maldives on the Island of Rangalifinolhu there’s a beautiful white sand resort that offers top of the line services and accommodations. Among their many attractions is a very special restaurant, one that rests at the bottom of the sea.

Well, okay, only 16 feet but it’s still one of the most fascinating and amazing places you can go to get maldivian lobster carpaccio and poached quail egg. I guess I should mention that’s it’s a pretty classy establishment. The menu, however fancy, is one of the less interesting things about the place, the atmosphere is where it’s at. Just take a look for yourself.

Ithaa won the “the most beautiful restaurant in the world” honor handed out by the New York Daily News in 2014
The building was actually constructed in Singapore and “sunk” to its current position with the help of 85 tonnes of sand ballast.
Due to pressures placed on its structure, Ithaa is expected to last only 20 years before breaking down.
The word Ithaa means mother-of pearl in Dhivehi.
Meals here are pretty expensive starting at $130 and going up to $500 or more.


Missed a spot.

Dining at this establishment is truly an unforgettable experience. The venue is also available for private parties and weddings.
