Dining with Nemo in the Maldives

The Maldives is a true world class diving destination. There are literally hundreds of amazing dive sites, pristine reefs and unbelievable variety of marine life, to explore on your luxury yacht charter Maldives. But you don’t have to be a diver to enjoy the underwater views in the Maldives; there are several 5 star resorts that have underwater restaurants, where you can watch the turtles, sharks and angelfish as they glide past! All in all, an incredible experience.


The world’s first undersea restaurant was opened in 2005 at the Conrad Hotel Rangali, about 100 km north of Male. The restaurant name is Ithaa, which means “mother of pearl” in the Maldivian language, and this all-glass structure sits 5 metres below the ocean surface, offering a 270-degree panoramic view of the clear blue Maldivian waters.
