Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my first dip into the blogging trench, started out of my curiosity to know what actually is a blog. I try to put here my readings from various sources; books, blogs, sites. I also grab stuff from here & there and try to showcase it in my own style here. If you'd like my scribblings, please subscribe to my full text RSS feeds.

Currently I am experimenting a few new features on my blog, like Peekaboo and Post Summary; the reason for the slight distortion you see. I am hoping to frame up these soon, please bear with me!

Dining at a world class hotel is a passé. Doing it underwater is in. It is definitely going to catch up a craze for everyone who dreams.

The below picturs are from the Ithaa Undersea Resturant – the world’s first and only aquarium style restaurant. This restaurant is located 5 metres below sea level and is owned by the Hilton Group. In a spectacular setting on the Indian Ocean, the Hilton Maldives Resort & Spa is the ultimate romantic destination offering sophisticated barefoot luxury: stunning tropical islands surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty and sparkling ocean. It is indeed a marvel at 360° views of reef and marine life, sip champagne cocktails and sample Maldivian-Western fusion cuisine at this spectacular restaurant.

And as if this were not sufficient, guess what!!! Lodging underwater is next. Naaah, is it possible? Yes it is indeed. A couple of resorts are being decked up which would serve as the world's first underwater resorts.
