July 2012 update: food at Itha was awesome. Can’t beat caviar as a starter but the portions were huge. My favorite part was of the day was to go snorkeling with whale sharks!
We just returned from the Conrad Rangali Hilton Hotel Maldives and the Ithaa Underwater Restaurant. The resort itself was very beautiful and the staff were amazing… very friendly, helpful and accomodating.
The kids had a blast at the Ithaa underwater restaurant. They really enjoyed the experience and even though both of them had too litle sleep the night before they were bothe excited to be there. There were lots of fish. We had lunch at the restaurant and the staff allowed our large party to have the restaurant to ourselves. Normally the restaurant only seets 14 people. The steak was very good but the red snapper could have been a little better. Overall you go there to eat under the sea not for the food 🙂 The service was excellent and they had a good selection for the kids.
I would especially like to thank Shanee for arranging everything for us. I would also like to thank Ahmed for making the underwater eating experience a memorable one. Maldives Air Taxi (thanks to Ya) gave us a great deal on the sea plane charter to and from the resort. All in all it was a trip to remember.
