海景晚宴已够令人难以抗拒，哪么海底盛宴是否更夢寐以求? 说的正是置于清澈的印度洋，位于海面下16英尺深的世界首个全玻璃海底餐厅—— Ithaa。Ithaa包揽了2017年世界豪华餐厅中的三项全球奖，其名望无庸置疑。此餐厅位处马尔代夫伦格里岛的康莱德酒店，途步至酒店外的码头尽處，再沿着螺旋阶梯而下，迎面而來就是一群珊瑚礁。（没错! 你所看到的是真的珊瑚礁。）这条观光小路感觉不错吧？菜单以新派欧洲菜式为主，只此一家。以奢华食材入饌，包括其六道菜肴套餐及較輕盈的四道菜肴午餐中所用的鱼子酱和鹅肝。
Often when we travel, hotels are just a place where we rest our heads at night. We might choose a hotel based on its proximity to all the prime food spots, but rarely ever would we select one purely for the restaurants on-site.
We wouldn’t dream of complaining about an ocean-front view, but underwater? Now we’re talking. 16ft below sea level, right in the middle of the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean, you’ll find Ithaa, the world’s first-ever all-glass undersea restaurant. This place recently bagged three Global Awards at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2017, and it’s not hard to see why. Located in the Conrad Maldives Hotel, Rangali Island, to get there diners can walk along towards the end of the jetty, whereupon you’d descend down a spiral staircase toward a coral reef below. (Yes, an actual coral reef.) How’s that for a scenic route? The menu here is contemporary European and feels every bit as exclusive as the 14-cover location. Expect more luxurious touches like caviar and foie gras for the six-course dinner set menu, and slightly lighter fare for the four-course lunch.
Go on; treat yourself to a 180-degree panoramic view of the surrounding coral gardens and an endless parade of marine life–snorkels optional. You’ll probably find yourself thinking that things really are better under the sea.
