Best Resorts for Vegetarians in the Maldives
31 July, 2021
In response to the growing, health-conscious, and ethically-minded guest profile, Kuredu Island Resort & Spa launches a new menu inspired by ‘produce-to-plate’ ethos.
As part of its culinary offerings, the vibrant Kuredu Island, located in the pristine Lhaviyani Atoll, has introduced a new seafood and plant-based menu at its sea-facing restaurant, Beach Shack.
Executive Sous Chef Marek Koucky, inspired by his culinary training in Mexico and travels around the world, and his talented team, have crafted a delightful menu that stays true to ‘produce-to-plate’ ethos. It features specially selected produce of the region, locally sourced seafood, and a daily harvest from Kuredu’s expansive greenhouse and organic garden, bursting with fresh vegetables, fragrant herbs, and aromatic spices.
The new à la carte menu offers a flavourful selection of seafood delights, with signature dishes including Jumbo Crab with spiced bisque, chicken wing, charred pineapple, and tapioca cracker and Lobster Medallions with young coconut, red curry, and pearl barley risotto.
Health-conscious and ethically-minded guests can enjoy tucking into a luscious array of inventive vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free selections. Chef’s recommendations include Pumpkin Veloute served with mushrooms, smoked almonds, and truffle oil and Grilled Artichokes with marinated artichoke hearts, asparagus, and mustard seeds. All the plates are visually appetising, delicious, and elevated with a locally inspired twist.
Complementing the refined dining experience are freshly-baked bread with special ‘seaweed’ butter, served before dinner service begins and a hand-picked selection of premium wines from Kuredu’s very own wine cellar.
Sweet treats include Chocolate Rocky Road, Vegan Coconut Panna Cotta, and a Selection of Sorbets.
Tasting menus are also on offer to provide diners with the opportunity to sample six carefully selected courses from the new seafood & vegan menu.
Guests are invited to dine healthily and organically, whether sea-facing or on the beach under the stars and explore the exquisite flavours of the Maldives and the Indian Ocean.
Beach Shack is available for dinner, on request with 24 hours prior notice. To learn more, please visit: Beach Shack Restaurant at Kuredu
Kuredu Island Resort & Spa
Best Experience: Couples, Families, Diving, Value, All Inclusive
The most popopular with divers, Kuredu Island Resort & Spa situated on the north reef of Lhaviyani Atoll, an area known for its unrivalled beauty and tropical marine life. With established, laid-back vibe the resort offers guests the ultimate luxury island retreat and is one of the larger islands in the Maldives.
Originally opened in 1989, the island was packed with fun-loving young people that was big on diving and Kuredu offered its guests over-water Sangu villas. After the island's east end has been added modern 'O' beach villas, and really private Sultan Villas took a place in the heart of Kuredu. It’s loaded with restaurants and bars (14 in total) and has plenty of space for large amenities like a soccer field, golf course, two spas, and three pools. Kuredu isn’t as intimate as some smaller resorts, and it’s a pricey, 45-minute flight from Male. Still, affordable rooms and impressive food make Kuredu an outstanding overall value; travelers will be hard-pressed to find a better upscale resort especially one offering all-inclusive packages that include alcohol at these rates.
