Maldives is already one of the most unusual and magical holiday destinations in the world, particularly as home to about two-thirds of the world's overwater bungalows.
But for those who want to take the sea-life observation one step further than watching through a glass panel in your bungalow floor, you can dine at the world's first undersea restaurant at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort.
Open since 2005, the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant is made of all glass and has 180-degree views of the magnificent tropical sea and plant life.
There are only 14 seats and 7 tables so it's wise to take advantage of the fact that you can make a reservation starting two weeks before you arrive, considering that the resort has 150 villas and rooms.
The cuisine is Maldivian-Western fusion with a seasonal menu, and it's open for lunch and dinner daily. Dress is “smart” and children under 12 aren't allowed to dine at the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant at all.
