Dining

Relish

a complete culinary experience

The resort’s restaurants are well-catered to eating and drinking pleasures. Dr. Ali’s leads the restaurant selection with three distinctive living rooms that focus on fine cuisine from the Indian Ocean, the South China Sea and the Arabian Gulf. For quality café dining during the day and refined Western fare in the evening, Javvu will delight guests. And if you seek an exceptional Maldives dining experience, find it as you lunch aboard a luxury yacht while cruising on the equator.

Dine by Design

Discover new dining experiences in some of the resort’s most secret locations. Be it a torch lit dinner under the banyan trees of the resort’s jungle, a spa dinner in the privacy of a meditation pavilion overlooking the ocean, a romantic in-villa evening or a dinner of local ingredients freshly prepared in the Chef’s Garden, our culinary team will help create a memorable experience.
