Looking for a romantic getaway and a once in a lifetime experience for dinner? How about an underwater restaurant? The Hilton Maldives Resort has opened the first undersee restaurant, which essentially means that you're the one in the glass tank, and the fish get to watch YOU. It's also great if you want to experience a coral reef without swimming amongst sharks.

From HospitalityNet:
The Maldives | 15 April marks the day that the first ever all-glass undersea restaurant in the world opens its doors for business at the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. Ithaa* will sit 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.

“We have used aquarium technology to put diners face-to-face with the stunning underwater environment of the Maldives”, says Carsten Schieck, General Manager of Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa. “Our guests always comment on being blown away by the colour, clarity, and beauty of the underwater world in the Maldives, so it seemed the perfect idea to build a restaurant where diners can experience fine cuisine and take time to enjoy the views â€" without ever getting their feet wet.” (Hospitality Net)
