hurawalhi island resort opens with world’s largest underwater restaurant

The luxurious Hurawalhi Island Resort is now open to holidaymakers visiting the Maldives and holds the record for the world’s largest undersea restaurant.


Guests can enjoy a sensational under-the-sea dining experience. This alone is well worth a trip to the spectacular resort, which is just 40 minutes by seaplane from the main island of Male.


This eco-friendly resort offers guests a choice of 90 upscale villas including 60 Ocean Villas and 30 Beach Villas. The property has a series of sustainable features including solar panels, a weather bottling plant and hot water recovery.


The onsite Marine Biology Centre allows guests to learn about the surrounding ocean’s marine life, coral reefs and conservation projects in special workshops. The facility is led by a resident marine biologist and runs in partnership with Prodivers Maldives. The resort also collaborates with marine conservation and education specialists, WiseOceans, on research projects.
