Restaurants & bars
The three main restaurants – Haruge, Malaafaiy and Farivalhu – are buffet style, and you’ll automatically be allocated one of these depending on where your villa is located. If you choose Full Board or All Inclusive, this is what’s included.
We recommend upgrading to Select All Inclusive to get the full choice of à la carte restaurants. At the heart of the island, Duniye serves up ‘fine dining world cuisine’ and fantastic wines. Siam Garden offers Thai cuisine with views of the lush vegetation outside. Tandoor Mahal is a traditional Indian restaurant, and Palm serves up Mediterranean dishes under a canopy of palms. For fresh seafood, The Reef – newly reopened and now overwater – sits at the tip of the island.
There’s also the all-day Island Coffee Shop, a popular Island Barbecue on the beach and seven bars around the island ranging from a pool bar to a wine and cigar lounge. You’ll love drinking fruity cocktails while perched on a comfy beanbag with your toes in the sand at the Sand Bar, and the views from the Laguna Bar’s outdoor deck at sunset are stunning.
Never one to rest on its excellent reputation, the resort also introduced some cool new drinking and dining options in 2016. Inguru serves up light bites during the day and Asian-fusion dishes for dinner, while Kobe offers an intimate overwater teppanyaki dining experience. Looking out to the Indian Ocean, the Champagne Loft focuses on a wide range of Champagnes, sparkling wines and white spirits.
It's worth noting that children need to be over 6 to dine at Kobe, Duniye, Island Barbecue, The Reef and Inguru.

Diving here is particularly impressive, with the Rasdhoo Atoll featuring more than 20 sites that can be reached in just five to 45 minutes. Dive sites vary between channels, walls, reefs, thilas and even a couple of wrecks.
The marine life is diverse and abundant, including different types of sharks (and you will see sharks on almost every dive), eagle rays, stingrays, manta rays (November to April), turtles, barracuda, tuna, Napoleons, morays, schools of jacks and trevally, leaf fish and even the occasional whale shark.
Rasdhoo Divers operates a dive school on the island (PADI/SSI). The multi-lingual team offers an excellent diving experience for both beginners and advanced divers.
The dive program for certified divers includes early morning dawn dive at Shark Point, morning and afternoon dives, night dives, half-day and full-day safaris.
