Immersive Underwater Restaurant Invites You to Dine Next to Spectacular Marine Life

Undersea Restaurant

The experience is a big part of fine dining. A stellar ambiance enhances the food and drink in a way that makes the entire meal one that you’ll never forget. If you’re eager to try a one-of-a-kind fine dining experience, then you’ll want to make a reservation at SEA restaurant in the Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas resort. As the name implies, you're surrounded by the ocean as you nosh—but this restaurant does it with a twist. While you feast on a menu of international classics and enjoy an extensive wine selection, you do so completely underwater.

SEA offers kaleidoscopic floor-to-ceiling windows that have a crystal-clear view of marine life. There isn’t a bad table in the place, but sitting next to the glazing will give you an up-close view of the nearby coral reefs as well as schools of colorful fish, reef sharks, stingrays, and moray eels that swim by. A mirrored ceiling makes the experience an immersive one—you’ll feel like you’re in The Little Mermaid!

SEA serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The incredible dining atmosphere makes it a splurge; breakfast starts at $200 per person while lunch and dinner start at $295. But for this locale, the price tag might actually be worth it.

SEA is an underwater restaurant in the Maldives that offers you the opportunity to dine next to stunning marine life.
