The Rooftop Deck & Bar is the best place in the resort to enjoy an unhindered view of a dramatic, bold, Maldivian sunset, while sipping your favourite drink. Choose from our extensive bar menu featuring cocktails, mocktails, beer and wine, while taking in the 360-degree panoramic views of our idyllic island and the Indian Ocean. The Rooftop Deck & Bar also offers Shisha (hubbly bubbly) in a variety of tempting flavours.
As our resort's signature dining destination, The Kitchen provides a feast for your senses. Watch our skilled chefs artfully prepare your scrumptious dishes right before your eyes, adding a touch of theatre to your dining adventure. Enjoy fresh seafood and international favourites just steps from the beach, while you relish calming views of the azure sea.
Feast on international and local delights from sunup to sundown at our all day buffet restaurant. With spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and the swimming pool, the Kandooma Cafe offers flavours for every palate. Savour tropical island fruits and freshly baked pastries to complement your meal. Choose from indoor or al fresco seating for a unique dining experience.
This casual and inviting venue is located a few steps away from the tranquil ocean, the pristine beach and the resort swimming pool. Situated on the main beach, BAR-Aveli Beach Bar is one of the preferred locations to watch a dazzling Maldivian sunset. Our open-air beach bar complete with high bar stools and bean bags, invites the fresh sea breeze in, while you treat yourself to island cocktails carefully crafted by our mixologists and light snacks that’ll perfectly complement your beverage.
Relax! It’s too hot to do anything else, except perhaps to decide whether to order from a menu of fresh salads, burgers and wood-fired pizza or pick up a choice cut of eye fillet or lamb loin for a DIY BBQ under the shade of a coconut grove, pausing briefly for a sip of your favourite beverage and chatting to fellow grillers. Open from 11:00am to 10:30pm.
