Hurawalhi Maldives’ 5.8 undersea restaurant

Maldives’ trendiest undersea restaurant will turn into a perfect venue to host a major yoga event

Set on an enchanting private island surrounded by a beautiful lagoon and long stretches of white sandy beach, the 5.8 Underwater Restaurant (19-feet beneath the lagoon) in Hurawalhi Maldives, offers both panoramic views of its tropical marine underworld, and inviting guests to enjoy what is said to be a world-class tasting menu and a selection of fine wines from its cellar.

Other gastronomy experience in Hurawalhi includes dining options, such as A’la Carte Menu at the Coco Bar and Pool, In-Villa Dining (24 hour service) and Candlelight Beach Dinners and Chef’s Table. In addition, the underwater restaurant will also turn into a yoga venue for privileged yogis.

Organised by the Montreal-based yoga apparel company, it has previously held yoga events at prestigious landmarks around the world, such as the Eiffel Tower, Central Park in New York, The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, and Montreal’s Olympic Stadium.

The 5.8 Undersea Restaurant to serve as the picturesque milieu of serenity for participants to engage in yoga event, surely is the first-of-its-kind under the sea. Suitable for yogis of all levels, from beginner to intermediate and advanced, the classes will take place on March 17 at $120.

What to expect: Vinyasa flow yoga class

The goal of the vinyasa flow class will be to “improve flexibility, boost muscle strength, power up the immune system and produce an inner calm.” Conducted by yoga instructor Jessica Olie in a one-hour class, “participants will engage in a unique session performing downward dogs and, perhaps, the fish or dolphin pose, surrounded by schools of colorful, tropical fish swimming in a liquid azure sky.”

However, if the Maldives is slightly out of reach, you might want to keep tabs on the Lole White Tour which organises yoga tours globally in unexpected places.
