Restaurants in Maldives – A treat for the senses!

The clear blue Indian Ocean, the sun kissed islands, the inviting beaches, the abundance of marine life and the stunning coral reefs sum up the natural beauty of the Maldives. Resorts, spas, fine cuisine and Pina coladas by the water are what make a relaxing holiday. Step out of your high heels and into your flip flops, or forget footwear altogether and embrace the powdery white sand beneath your feet. If you are a foodie, Kurumba Maldives was made for you! The hotel boasts over ten different dining settings and even classes in preparing local cuisine and cocktail making.

The local cuisine, much like all other aspects of Maldivian life, is centered heavily around the ocean. The bountiful seas that surround the islands are brimming with marine life, which makes for a thriving fishing industry. Commonly found fish like skipjack tuna, yellowfin tuna, bigeye scad, wahoo and mahi-mahi make their way to dining tables all across the country and are even exported. Fish dishes prepared with local spices and flavours also feature on every restaurant menu. Many local preparations also incorporate coconut that grows freely along the shores. Maldivian food is heavily influenced by Sri Lankan and South Indian as well as Arabic and Oriental cuisines.

Restaurants in the Maldives go beyond delectable food, many apply an awe inspiring theme and aim to create a unique ambience. Many hotels have bars and restaurants that offer overwater dining experiences and barbeques on the beach. A few even have underwater restaurants. Currently under construction, on Lhaviyani Atol, is the largest undersea restaurant in the world. The structure comprises of an acrylic dome on a steel structure. Once completed a spiral staircase will lead down into the twenty four seater restaurant which can even be converted into a stunning wedding venue. The grand opening is scheduled for August 2016.
