Food & drink
This is not an island where you will lack choice; in total there are seven restaurants and four bars, catering for every taste and mood.
The main restaurant, Atoll Market, has no fewer than eight different types of cuisine cooked by eight show kitchens. Choose from Asian, Italian, Japanese, Indian, the grill, the deli, the bakery and desserts. The sandy floor of the restaurant encourages a barefoot dress code and a relaxed atmosphere.
Koko Grill is a Japanese cooking station on the beach, for just 12 diners.
Mandhoo is the spa restaurant, serving European/Asian fusion food and organic wines over the water.
Over water Vilu is the fine dining restaurant, and the place to go for romantic Mediterranean meals that are matched with fine wines.
Sunset Grill is a winning combination of impossibly pretty Maldivian sunsets and grilled meat and fish.
The resort has a couple of extra special dining experiences that gourmands will not want to miss. The Wine Cellar holds 20,000 bottles and hosts dégustation dinners, with food and wine matched by the chef and sommelier, while Ithaa is a glass undersea restaurant where you can enjoy spotting fish in between the seven courses.
The bars are the place to enjoy a drink with a view or a snack, with the Sunset Bar popular for sundowners, and the Cheese and Wine Bar a great spot to explore the resort's seemingly endless wine list. The Quiet Zone has chilled out music and day beds, for a relaxing aperitif, while Rangali Bar is more lively, with musicians and events providing the entertainment.
