10 Years of underwater dining in the Maldives!

Inspiring Travel Company | 21 Apr, 2015

At the Inspiring Travel Company we cater for the kind of travellers who have journeyed the globe and seen it all. But even the most established members of the jet set can’t fail to be impressed by Ithaa Undersea Restaurant at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island

A world first, this restaurant is sunk into the seabed five metres under the Indian Ocean, which surrounds diners on every side. This unique position makes Ithaa one of the most exclusive dining experiences on the planet. 

Last week the architectural marvel celebrated its 10th birthday and, of course, they celebrated in style. For the first time the renowned Château Margaux wine estate hosted an exclusive sommelier dinner beneath the waves. This vineyard, which dates back to the 17th century, is famous for its exquisite and expensive wines. With one 1787 bottle famously selling for $225,000, it’s not difficult to see why Ithaa chose Château Margaux to share in their birthday celebrations. 

But you didn’t need a table at the restaurant to join the party. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island (@ConradMaldives) hosted a live Twitter Chat to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the restaurant’s opening. Using #IthaaTurns10 visitors from around the world posted photos of their own Ithaa memories, with these pictures really capturing the magic of the place. Couples enjoy a romantic dinner during their luxury Maldives honeymoon and children stand open-jawed at the transparent walls of the restaurant, just metres from basking sharks. Search the hashtag on Twitter now to see for yourself. 

If all this talk of Ithaa has whet your appetite for luxury dining in the Maldives then you may be interested to know that it is just one of the seven exceptional restaurants that the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island boasts, meaning you can enjoy a different dining experience every day of the week here.
