Dining Lifestyle

The search for a world-class dining venue with both breathtaking views and innovative dishes appears to be over with the spectacular 5.8 Undersea Restaurant that dazzles and delights its diners with a multi-course tasting extravaganza, embellished with a state-of-the-art location.

5.8, the Maldives’ trendiest dining venue, is the world’s largest all-glass, underwater restaurant. Serving both lunch and dinner at 5.8 meters under the sea, this fine dining space is both a culinary delight and visual masterpiece. Paired together, guests can satisfy their appetite and dive into a view that few restaurants in the world can afford. 

The Maldives is a tropical nation in the Indian Ocean composed of 26 atolls, which are made up of more than 1,000 coral islands. The islands are best known for their beautiful white sand beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs, housing the most exclusive and spectacular underwater life, and 5.8 Undersea Restaurant allows you to experience all the beauty that the private island of Huruvalhi has to offer.

After a scenic boat ride to the charming island, you are welcomed by a guide who will explain all the basics of this world-class restaurant. Just walk down a 41-step spiral staircase and you will be seated at 1 of just 8 tables located 18 feet beneath the sea. You are then able to enjoy a menu with an array for choices and a selection of fine wines from the cellar while marveling at the passing  marine life, an exciting show of fish floating around the gorgeous surrounding coral reef.

The enchanting experience on the Huruvalhi Island at the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant is unlike many others with surroundings that all but a few restaurants in the world can compete with.  Book your reservations early, there are only 8 seats under the sea at this incredible venue.
