Our idea of a romantic dinner has always been that of enjoying a meal with candlelight, setting the tone for a really lovely and memorable evening. A view of the moon and the stars plus the rustle of the waves splashing on the shore can truly make for a wonderful dinner for two. But if youre already tired of such a setup, why not try enjoying your meal with your loved one with the fabulous creatures of the sea bearing witness to the love you have for each other? Well, dont don your wetsuit yet as well first brief you on the worlds 3 best underwater restaurants.
Its an underwater restaurant made accessible only to the super-rich, the popular, and the politically- and socially-influential personalities of the world. This is the Al Mahara, a lavish, extravagant, and truly luxurious underwater restaurant located in the waters nourishing the shores of Dubai. It is rightfully one of the planets most expensive fine dining establishments as it is part of the equally luxurious and high-end Burj Al Arab Jumeriah Hotel.
It is amazing what architects and engineers can do to create an oasis in the desert, complete with fish-scaled walls, highly-extravagant interior design, coral-inspired lighting, floor-to-ceiling aquarium, and even clam shell seating in gold. The Al Mahara is now helmed by Michelin Star chef Nathan Outlaw. His scallops with charred lime is a must-try.
When one speaks of the islands of Maldives, it automatically conjures images of pristine beaches and super-calm blue waters lined with off-white sand and palm trees. You wont get this view if you dine at the Sea located at the Anantara Kihava Villas. What youll get is an amazing view of the Maldivean deep, complete with corals and colorful fishes that will make you feel like youre eating inside an aquarium with the fishes essentially on the outside looking in.
The architecture of the Sea offers you a full 360-degree view of the waters below the surface of this part of Maldives complete with a mirrored ceiling to give you such a surrealistic yet truly memorable experience. On the menu is red mullet fillet that has been elegantly wrapped in lobster carpaccio. The poached lobster medallion is also worthy of ones gustatory cravings.
