Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives Rangali Island Hotel – Maldives
Ahh, the famous underwater restaurant. I remember when images of the Ithaa Undersea started floating around Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and what seemed like the entire Internet. Perhaps it is the pessimist in me, but I first thought to myself, “Wait, this has to be photoshopped.” But nope, it’s very real and a whole 16 feet below sea level. Definitely one for the bucket list.
What to order? Omg, does it matter? You are underwater! But in all seriousness, the restaurant is not all looks, it has won several awards and is lauded for its delicious and carefully crafted dishes – there is no wrong choice here.

It is easy to see why Ali Barbour’s Cave is lauded for its romantic and somewhat ~gothic vibes~. Perfectly dimmed the restaurant swoops you into an intimate and amorous space for you and a fellow beau.
Located on Diani beach makes Ali Barbour’s Cave the perfect place to end a day out in the sun – cooler, duskier and with a list of refreshing beverages on hand #VampiresRejoice. Ordering from “baba’s favorites” cocktails list will be a must. Perhaps the Pimms cocktail? Fresh mango, Malibu and madafu – a truly beautiful trifecta.

Soho House – Los Angeles, California
One of the many Houses selectively sprinkled across the world, Soho House West Hollywood is nested alongside Sunset Blvd. dazzling its guests with an amazing view of the city. However, like any other Soho House, access to the club requires a membership. The application process calls for proper headshots, references and information about your line of work *sweats in Linkedin*. Good luck!
What to order? If you’re feeling very L.A. the Matcha Sour – it’s green, kinda. 😉

One more cave for you! However, this one is dubbed, ‘The Summer Cave.’ Showcasing itself alongside a seaside cliff, the Italian restaurant soaks in plenty of natural light and presents an incredible view of the sea while you drink and dine. The locale has an abundance of seafood and pasta courses – perfect for carb-loading and soaking in salty mist.

Mozaic – Bali, Indonesia
The refreshing and tranquil dining spot – enveloped in gorgeous greenery and warm candlelight glow – will also make for an epic date night. The French inspired cuisine adds to the #romance, but dinner would not be complete without dessert and a post-meal cocktail. Although, you might have a difficult time choosing given their wide selection of libations you will no doubt find something that suits your liking. Lychee and passion martini anyone?
