SUBSIX, the stunning underwater restaurant and Bar at Niyama Maldives
Originally opened as a night club, the first underwater clubbing spot in the world at this time, Subsix is located nearly 20 feet ( 6 meters ) below the Indian Ocean.
It is now an underwater playground opened for lunches, special events and parties.
Guests reach Subsix via speedboat, skipping over the reef to its 500-metre offshore location.
Upon arrival, the underwater revellers descend a dramatic three-tier staircase.
Overhead, Italian-designed abstract chandeliers illuminate the descent like shining coral or white stars sparkling through the sea’s surface. Brancusi cabinetry and mirrors line the path.
Located more than 500 meters off-shore Niyama main island, Subsix is only accessible by boat from the resort.
Subsix was revamped in 2014 and is visually outstanding.
Decorated around the sea theme, everything reflects the ocean.
Coral-like chandeliers, ocean blue lighting, mirrors reflecting the surrounding marine life, anemone-inspired chairs massage guests with rubber fingers, capiz shell ceiling arrangements remind of undersea jungle…the all space is almost entirely tricking our senses.
In the centre of the room, a huge clam-inspired bar strikes an imposing form, its fibreglass shell glowing with Subsix’s mood lighting that shifts throughout the day from pure white mornings to a lavender dinner setting to late-night blues.
SUBSIX Underwater Bar is an immersion into aquatic life
Among the many activities hosted by Subsix, marine biologist-led immersions into aquatic life give guests an expert’s insight into the rich environment and its secrets. Other highlighted activities in the restyled venue include subaquatic lunches, gourmet dinners, weddings, hosted events, wine tastings, a weekly Glow Party and DJ nights carrying on the tradition of its birth as a pioneer-of-the-deep club.
Underwater Glow Parties are organised each Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 9:00 pm.
