Beyond cool. Another reason to visit lucious Lhaviyani atoll is the new luxury resort Hurawalhi with its underwater restaurant. The resort is conveniently situated between lively Kuredu and laid back Komandoo, making for perfect holiday combinations with short transfer. This video will give you an idea of the mad project of building an under water restaurant in New Zeeland, transporting it to the Maldives and getting it in place under water. I mean...? Really? ;-)
Hurawalhi Island Resort & Spa, Maldives, will be a resort masterpiece in many ways, with the 5.8 underwater restaurant being downright sensational and alone worth the trip. The resort is still in its development phase, but one thing is certain: Hurawalhi is gaining world-wide attention.
It has taken a fair amount of ambition, optimism and dedication to decide to have the world’s largest underwater restaurant built, and it has taken our contractor even more ingenuity to build it exactly as imagined. After 10 months of hard work, the 400 ton megastructure left New Zealand where it was built, and is now on its way to the Maldives, travelling here by cargo ship.
The restaurant will sit 5.8 meters below the lagoon, with guests entering it via a staircase from a little hut on the jetty. Engineers and divers will help us lower this 18 m x 5 m phenomenon and place it on steel piles that we constructed in 2015.
I will try this babe out for myself in February 2017. :-)
