A thriving new nightclub in the Southeast Asian island nation of the Maldives does not offer your typical experience. This nightclub is almost 20 feet underwater, surrounded by beautiful fish and stunning coral reefs. The club combines pounding bass with gorgeous marine life.
It is known as Subsix, and it is easily the first of its kind. The club is located 500 meters offshore of the island resort of Nyama, which rests in the Dhaalu Atoll, roughly 40 minutes from the capital city of Malé if you travel by seaplane.
At the club, guests will be treated to the performances of talented DJs while drinking their favorite cocktails. But if they look outside the glass windows, they will see snapper fish, sea anemones and schools of fish swimming by. The club also features disco lights and glowsticks everywhere.
Needless to say, it’s a trippy experience that you can’t find anywhere else.
The club first opened in 2010, when it was constructed on land. It was then carefully reconstructed by marine biologists in a coral reef garden. The reef is still thriving, while the nightclub is extremely popular.
A sea life theme is maintained throughout the club. It features pendants that resemble sea urchins hanging from the ceiling, shell lighting strands that create the simulation of rolling waves and barstools that portrayed sea creatures. All of this was achieved while maintaining a modern a sleek nightclub design. People say that the club is as glamorous as any other club in trendy parts of New York and London.
Plus, it’s certainly more unique.
The club keeps the partying going entirely through the night. It does not shut down until the very last guest wants to call it an evening and they take a 15 minute ride on a shuttle boat back to the island. Typically, the party goes until sunrise.
The success of the club will most certainly continue into the future. It’s not easy to find a place where you can put your dance moves on display while surrounded by sharks and stingrays at three o’clock in the morning.
