New Hurawalhi Island Resort to open in Maldives with largest undersea glass restaurant

Lavish holiday living keeps on growing in the Maldives with the opening of a brand new resort in Hurawalhi Island. In only days, the stunning property will begin receiving guests and offering opulence in each detail and careful dedication in every service. Set to open on 1st December, the Hurawahli Island Resort boasts 90 luxury villas, including 60 over-sea accommodations and 30 lodgings on the beach, as well as a PADI dive centre and a spa.

Its most astounding feature, however, comes in the form of a peculiar dining venue: the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant. Named the 5.8 Restaurant, due to the fact that it sits 5.8 metres below the surface of the Indian Ocean, this facility will serve delicious meals in a privileged ambiance. Once they’ve enjoyed this unique experience, guests will have the opportunity to select other wonderful food and beverage options within the resort. From the Aquarium Restaurant and the Teppanyaki Grill to the more informal Canneli Restaurant and Coco Bar, visitors will be spoilt for choice. For a more romantic and intimate ambiance, beachfront dining is also available.

Luxury wasn’t the only concern in mind when designing the Hurawahli Island Resort in the Maldives. Utmost respect for its flora and fauna was a priority when building these eco-friendly facilities. With solar panels that supply up to 30% of the island’s energy needs and its own water bottling plant that eliminates the need for plastic bottles, the resort innovates in ecological measures.

The island’s wildlife is also carefully protected. The marine conservation group, Manta Trust, is collaborating with the island in order to preserve aquatic life and provide guided educational dives and snorkelling trips. Manta Trust is also responsible for preserving the habitats of Hurawahli’s magnificent animals, given the fact that it constitutes a nesting site for green turtles and a breeding ground for manta rays.

The new resort is another gem situated in one of the Maldives’ numerous paradise-like islands. Set in the Pacific Ocean, to the south of India, the Maldives comprise 1199 islands, grouped in 22 different atolls. The stunning scenery and untouched nature of its small islets draw the attention of over 600,000 tourists which come to visit each year.
