This luxury Maldives resort now offers a unique underwater dining experience

The underwater restaurant at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas

Eating at an underwater restaurant may sound like something straight out of a James Bond movie, but that’s exactly what’s on the menu at the Anantara Kihavah Maldives villa complex.

The luxury resort is offering the opportunity to dine beneath the waves in this chic restaurant, said to be home to the world’s first underwater wine cellar. 

The extraordinary eatery is located six metres below the surface of the Indian ocean, surrounded by a thriving reef. Occupancy is limited to six couples, or twelve adults, per sitting. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views, giving diners a chance to enjoy exotic marine life up close.

Sleeping with the fishes is generally not recommended. Eating with them is something different entirely.

So what do you get when you book a table? Your evening adventure begins with a champagne aperitif, before a set seven-course menu of gastronomic delights. We’re told the menu has been carefully curated by the resort’s Executive Chef to include an exciting new take on contemporary global cuisine.

Guests can also choose to have their dinner paired with a selection of wines, hand-picked by the resort’s resident Wine Guru. 

Given that the resort’s wine list features 450 labels from both renowned and more obscure wine regions, this sounds like an eminently sensible idea.

So how much will this glamorous repast set you back?

The novel experience is priced at $395 per person, plus an additional fee of $195 for the wine pairing.

Private pools and outdoor living areas with stunning views of the ocean come as standard. Each villa also boasts a personal butler to help with any needs or requests.

The Maldives is known for its crystal clear waters and coral reefs, and the resort offers guests the opportunity to explore these natural wonders through activities such as snorkelling and scuba diving.

Located near several dive sites, the island is a popular choice for diving enthusiasts.
