Is the Conrad Maldives the resort with the underwater restaurant?

I know that I will unleash a firestorm here by saying that I don't have any pictures of Ithaa, nor did I have any interest in visitng Ithaa for $150+ for drinks... 

Looks like a cool place but not something that I would shell out $$ for - just my two cents.

 Just wondering if all the North Americans that go to MLE are freeloaders FT\DDF etc..?!!

You always hear celebrities going more to BOB then MLE!!

Just my 2 cents.

Seriously,  he scored an insane upgrade.  Just to really appreciate what he got for those of you that haven't stalked the Conrad website like me, there are only two Premier Villas in the whole resort, run about $2500-4500 a night depending on the season and the only unit above it is the Sunset Villa which runs 5-10k a night.  Can't wait to hear about the rest of the trip!

It IS amazing but if it was on the main page but then you'd have all these goofballs demanding the Conrad cook them kosher food and this upgrade and thinking they deserve compensation if they don't get them!  He was worried to even post this stuff here...

I don't think these goofballs will ever get to maldives.
