Kai
An exquisite range of far Eastern and Asian delicacies awaits in this gem of a restaurant hidden away amid tropical greenery. Open for dinner each evening, diners can choose from extensive sushi and sashimi list made from the freshest local seafood as well as classic interpretations of regional Asian specialties from China, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The décor, with its calm reflecting pools and typical Japanese-inspired architecture, sets the scene for a memorable evening of fine dining.
Open for Dinner on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (19h00 – 22h00).

Mizu
The word Teppanyaki is derived from “Teppan” meaning iron hot plate and “Yaki” which means to grill or fry. That is exactly what you’ll experience at Mizu: The chef will prepare the most delicious fish, meat, and vegetarian dishes as you watch him skillfully cook in front of you with precision.
Add to this the use of top-quality ingredients, an extensive choice of sakes and wines, and the characteristic of sitting between the ocean and the tropical Ayada Maldives.
Reservations are required (closed on Tuesdays).

Ile de Joie
Lovers of the finer things in life will adore this tiny over-water open-air cheese and wine bar over the lagoon. Truly an ‘island of joy’, this is home to the island’s fine wines cellar where oenophiles will enjoy perusing the eclectic wine list.
The collection of specialty imported, hand-selected cheeses make this the perfect venue for open-air pre or post dinner relaxation over a fine cigar from the well-stocked humidor.
Open for Drinks and Snacks (18h00 – 23h00).

The Ottoman Lounge
This far-flung outpost of the Ottoman empire graces the island with fine Turkish teas and coffee presented in the traditional manner in filigree silver- service. Enjoy the unique experience of sipping authentically brewed Turkish coffee and specialty teas in a lounge with low seating, as inspired by a traditional café in Turkey.
This welcoming lounge is a perfect spot for a private meeting or a relaxed drink with friends.
For a soothing afternoon ritual look no further than the chef’s modern interpretation of afternoon tea. In the evenings, a choice of aromatic shisha water pipes (narghile) adds elegance.
The décor, with its sand-floor and thatched roof with carved wooden furniture, lends itself to photographic interest, especially in the evening when the ‘chandelier’ of hundreds of tiny Turkish style lanterns light up the lounge.
Open for Drinks (15h00 – 18h00).

Sea Salt
Feel the magic of the Maldives at our mouthwatering beach BBQ held under a carpet of stars where you can feast on freshly grilled meat and seafood.
Ideally situated on our Zero Degree Beach with golden sand, amazing sunshine, and a gentle sea breeze, this is the perfect place to savor food from the grill with your feet in the surf, a true delight!
Open on Tuesdays (19h20 – 22h00).

Zero Degree
Zero Degree restaurant and bar is where you’ll find poolside dining at its finest: a simple yet wide menu of international dishes that addresses all cravings from crisp fresh salads to European, Asian, and middle eastern dishes.
Guests can choose to dine barefoot in the water, under a thatched roof, in one of the poolside cabanas swathed in fabric, or of course for the ultimate sun lovers, the sunbeds by the pool. At night, thanks to its incredible LED lighting display, the pool transforms into a myriad of tiny stars, reflecting the incredible night skies for an unforgettable midnight swim.
At this time the bar becomes the social place to be, with live music, DJ, and special events such as open-air movies enjoyed in the pool while the bartenders work their magic from an enticing list of cocktails and guests dance the night away.
Open for Drinks (from 12h00) and Lunch (12h00 – 18h00).
