Restaurants & bars

Maakanaa 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 Aqua – the overwater restaurant which features a modern European and Asian fusion à la carte menu.

Thila, the intimate Japanese restaurant, features 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 two guests at a time are invited to share in a starlit dining experience under the palm trees of the tropical garden. 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, Faru offers freshly caught seafood and fresh lobster under the moonlight. There’s also Veli – a beach bar serving up light bites and tropical cocktails.
