Maldives Underwater Restaurant Revamped as Temporary Yoga Studio

By Paul Joseph

A luxury Maldives resort featuring the largest underwater restaurant in the world is to transform its innovative eatery into a tranquil temporary yoga studio.

For one weekend only, the aquatic-themed dining space, where you can gaze at tropical fish as you eat, will be converted into a yoga space for a select group of guests.

The restaurant is organising the event – which is being billed as the world’s first underwater yoga event – with the help of yoga instructor Jessica Olie.

Guests are being promised “physical and mental rewards, with captivating views of fish around you as you move from one pose to the next bringing you even closer to a state of the zen-like state of mind.”

The session is suitable for beginners and experienced yoga practitioners and is priced at $120 per person. The 60-minute vinyasa flow session will also include refreshments.

Located 5.8 metres below the luxurious, adults-only, all inclusive Hurawalhi Maldives Resort, the 5.8 Underwater Restaurant is the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant.

The yoga studio session will run from 17th - 18th March.
