The reefs and marine life of the Maldives are so magical that once you see tham first-hand, you’ll be forever entranced by their beauty and a holiday here wouldn’t be complete without experiences that allow you to embrace all the wonders the ocean beholds. Scuba diving and snorkelling are amazing ways to view the natural wonders of the Indian Ocean but at Hurawalhi they are not the only ways, for a truly unforgettable experience during your stay, dine at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, the world’s largest all-glass underwater dining destination.
5.8 will send your senses soaring with the exquisite culinary masterpieces of the tasting menu curated by our talented Executive Chef, Edouard Deplus, while all the time being surrounded by the ocean. Clouds of tiny silver baitfish dance with seemingly perfectly choreographed precision to avoid the hunting jack fish; an abundance of colourful fish, and maybe even a shark, turtle or ray will be grace you with their presence – be prepared for a sensory overload of the best kind imaginable.
Reservations can be made for lunch or dinner and with the limited capacity we recommend you book before you arrive using the Hurawalhi App. For an extra special treat, perhaps for a celebration or even ‘just because’, 5.8 can be exclusively reserved for the ultimate private dining experience where a bespoke menu will be designed with creativity and quality ingredients to beautifully complement the restaurant’s stunning design.
