Looking for a unique dining experience? Perhaps underwater is the way to go! Maldives has just become home to the world’s largest underwater restaurant. Don’t get too excited, it only accommodates 30 people, but that’s huge when you consider the fact that underwater restaurants usually seat only about 10-12 diners.
The restaurant will be a part of the Hurawalhi Island Resort located on Lhaviyani Atoll.
The dome was designed by MJ Murphy, a New Zealand based architecture firm and constructed by another New Zealand company called Fitzroy Engineering.
The 410-tonne restaurant measures 22.5 meters in length and took 10 months to build. Diners will take a spiral staircase from a hut o access the restaurant. Since the dining space has no kitchen (food is prepared on shore and sent underwater through a dumbwaiter) the venue will be customizable especially for wedding receptions. A sea loving couple can even have it turned into a honeymoon suite!
The resort and restaurant will be open to guests from August 2016 onwards.
