World Travel Awards Gala Ceremonies are widely regarded as the best networking opportunities in the travel industry, attended by government and industry leaders, luminaries and international print and broadcast media.
The Ithaa Undersea Restaurant claimed the award in the ‘World’s Leading Underwater Hotel Restaurant’ category after beating off competition from popular undersea restaurants in Maldives: 5.8 Undersea Restaurant at Hurawalhi Maldives, Sea at Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas, and Subsix at Niyama Private Islands Maldives.
