Experience a whole new experience by dining in the first-ever undersea restaurant in the world!
The first-ever undersea restaurant in the world has been introduced at the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. Ithaa (which is pronounced “eet-ha” and means “pearl” in the language of the Maldives, Dhivehi) sits five meters below the waves of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by a vibrant coral reef and encased in clear acrylic, offering diners 270 degrees of panoramic underwater views.

This innovative restaurant is the first of its kind in the world, and is part of a US $5 million re-build of Rangalifinolhu Island, one of the twin islands that make up Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. This re-build includes the construction of 79 of the most luxurious beach villas in the country as well as the Spa Village, a self-contained, over-water “resort-within-a-resort” consisting of a spa, restaurant and 21 villas.
Update: The World's First Underwater Bar and Restaurant is the Red Sea Star - built in the waters of the Red Sea, seventy meters off the shore of Eilat.

i did some research on this for a project and infact it IS the first ever undersea restaurant which is made from ALL GLASS. The other restaurant in Israel is not made from all glass. it just has glass windows.
