While just about any part of the Maldives are dazzling and remarkable, a few place within the magical atolls stand out even for paradise.
There are dozens of enchanting ways to enjoy a meal in the Maldives – on the beach with the water lapping at your toes, on a deserted spit of sand in the middle of the ocean – but perhaps none so distinctive and ‘Maldivian’ as the Conrad Maldives Rangali’s Ithaa underwater restaurant.
“Dine 16 feet below sea level at Ithaa, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island’s unique undersea restaurant. Marvel at 180° views of reef and marine life, sip champagne cocktails and sample Maldivian-Western fusion cuisine at this spectacular Maldives venue – the world’s first all-glass, undersea restaurant.”

People often ask when the best time of year to go to the Maldives is for the best weather. As you can see from the chart above, provided courtesy of Hayes & Jarvis Maldives catalogue, there really is no bad time of year. January through April is the sunniest and driest, but we have visited all year round and have always found the weather consistently brilliant. As you can see from the temperature chart (orange bars), the air temperature average varies a total of 4 degrees between 84 and 88 degree Fahrenheit (29 to 31 degree Celsuis).
One of the luxuries of the distinctive Maldive turquoise lagoons and colourful reefs is the very comfortable water temperature. It makes snorkelling and swimming especially comfortable and reduces the equipment fuss for diving as often one can dive in just a swimsuit and no wetsuit. However, the water temperature does vary a bit more from a low of 75 to a high of 81 Fahrenheit (24 to 27 degrees Celsuis).
