New Beach Suites

11 September, 2021

Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences has just enhanced their repertoire even further by opening another food and beverage venue on the island - East restaurant.

The Maldives may famously have a policy of just one resort per private island, but that doesn’t have to mean guests run out of new things to try. In fact, as one of the largest and most spacious private island resorts in the Maldives, Amilla Maldives has a host of dining and drinking options available - so guests can try a different venue every night of the week.

The brand new South Indian eaterie at Amilla features a tandoori hut, which was built in the sand between East and the lazy poolside breakfast restaurant, Fresh. The tandoori hut enables Amilla’s chefs to bake crispy authentic naan and the tenderest tandoori meats.

Highlights of East’s menu includes traditional entrees such as seafood samosa, vegetable pakora and vada salad as well as a host of fish and seafood curries. The curries are served thali-style on a beautiful hammered copper platter. Each one is accompanied by an array of side dishes such as rice, soup, pickles and raita. 

These fragrant delights are complimented by desserts that put a fresh twist on traditional South Indian desserts. The Chef recommends trying the mango kulfi with pistachio. 

Guests following special diets do not have to miss out on eating at this new restaurant either. Amilla’s groundbreaking ‘Wellness Your Way’ programme includes bespoke options for vegan/vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and keto/paleo/low-carb diets.

Besides East, Amilla also offers a contemporary overwater restaurant, ‘Feeling Koi’; an Italian Grill, Barolo Grill, casual beachside dining at Emperor Beach Club; breezy breakfasts at Fresh, woodfire pizza at Joe’s Pizza; cocktails and snacks at Baa Bar; beachside drinks accompanied by DJ beats at the Sunset Bar; private destination dining; the Cellar Door wine tasting and charcuterie treats; floating breakfasts; room service and visiting chef pop-ups. 

The five star Maldives resort is located in Baa Atoll, just 20 minutes by seaplane from the international airport and only 15 minutes by speedboat from world-famous Hanifaru Bay manta snorkeling hotspot.

Amilla Fushi

Conrad Maldives Rangali Island

Best Experience:  Family, Couples, Dining, Diving, Spa

Featuring more flexible approach to tropical island luxury, Amilla Fushi offers a luxurious 'island home' for both couples and families in the Maldives. Younger, hipper, with a fresh and contemporary accomodation, the resort has so much to offer, from high design and inventive dining options, to stylish villas and amazing snorkelling and diving. Located in the Baa atoll, UNESCO Biosphere reserve, this might just be the most family friendly resort in the Maldives. Family villas have been designed to ensure that both the parent’s and children’s bedrooms are in the same building. The villas are very spacious, and unlike many two bedroom options you might find elsewhere, the second bedrooms are large and so also work very well for families with older children. The Sultan's Village kids’ club at Amilla Fushi is terrific – all palm tree swings, finger painting and beach games – teens can play billiards and X-Box, and all childcare, including baby-sitting, is complimentary. There is also a children's pool and beach club close by if parents wish to relax in close proximity to the Kids Club. In 2018, Amilla Fushi has been recognised as the leading family resort in Maldives. Read Full Review...
