Restaurants & bars

The main restaurant for Beach Bungalow guests, Maakeyn offers buffet-style dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lunch might consist of pizza and pasta, or a barbecue grill where the catch of the day and a selection of meats are cooked to perfection. There’ll also be a choice of local dishes and themed dinners. The resort recommends that Water Villa guests book in advance to dine here.

The main dining venue for Water Villa guests is Thari, the overwater restaurant, which features a modern European and Asian fusion à la carte menu.

Thila, the intimate Japanese restaurant, offers a live show cooking experience, where specialist chefs prepare fresh sushi and cook a selection of seafood and meats on the teppanyaki grill.

The Maldivian corner, Farivalhu, offers cultural dining, where guests are invited to share in a starlit dining experience under the palm trees on the beach. You’ll help prepare traditional Maldivian dishes which will then be served in the open by the Maldivian chefs.


For a romantic dinner on the beach, Kakuni offers freshly caught seafood and fresh lobster under the moonlight. There’s also Boli – a beach bar serving up light bites and tropical cocktails.

From January to April, Diamonds Athuruga hosts the exclusive 'Dining with the Stars' experience. Each week during these months, the island hosts a different star chef from the renowned Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe. Members of the 'JRE' will create dedicated à la carte menus. All guests staying between January and April will receive a complimentary cooking lesson and Water Villa guests can also enjoy a free six-course gala dinner (available at extra cost to Beach Bungalow guests).
