Colombo Dockyard built Underwater Restaurant has been successfully commissioned at the super luxury tourist resort, ‘YOU AND ME by Cocoon Maldives’, in the beautiful Uthuru Maafaru Islands in the Republic of Maldives.

This Underwater Restaurant will give a magical, extraordinary and an exquisite dining experience under the clear blue sea, while enjoying the view of beautiful fish and marine life in the natural under water surroundings.

The first ever construction of an Underwater Restaurant structure by Colombo Dockyard shows the capability and versatility of Colombo Dockyard, to cater to clients varying requirements; from complex commercial vessels to exquisite, customized requirements in the hospitality industry.
