I couldn’t help share this information, just in case you’re traveling in the Maldives. The concept of this restaurant gives a whole new meaning to “watch what you eat!”
Ithaa, very unique restaurant, at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort, should be under your radar if you enjoy exotic eateries with a sea motif. Sixteen feet below sea level, the seven-table restaurant with minimalist decor is tucked inside a transparent acrylic tunnel, so guests can watch sea life swimming by as they savor the Western-fusion fare (dressed-up curries and, of course, seafood—including the very black cod, legend fish, and rainbow runner you see swimming overhead). You may even be lucky enough to spot manta rays winging past. And there’s no need to worry about a Jaws 3–like aquarium collapse: The tunnel is so structurally sound that it stood up to the 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean. The space only has room for 14 people, though, so make reservations at least two weeks in advance. conradhotels1.hilton.com.
