Best Culinary Resort 2024 IN MALDIVES

22 October, 2023

After a four-year hiatus, this most exciting of dining experiences makes a come back to JA Manafaru’ island paradise. The culinary team has hired a brand new, highly skilled master chef who is set to slice, dice, and juggle before the eyes of 12 lucky resort guests three nights per week starting February 1st.

After winning the “Best Culinary Resort” award at the TTM Awards & Gala in 2023, Executive Chef Moosa Nazeer is excited to introduce The Teppanyaki Experience, offering a delectable menu starting with traditional miso soup before a selection of tempting entrées is presented, including Nori Tempura Tacos. Diners can then choose from the best seafood the Indian Ocean offers or a choice of meat from the resort’s carefully selected Ethical Meat program, including Cape Grim beef and Hazeldene’s Chicken.

JA Manafaru introduced this program in 2023 to cater to the growing demand of travellers to know where their food comes from and that animals are treated humanely during rearing.

This program is just one part of the resort’s new sustainability and wellness initiatives. One of these programs, Wellness Your Way, which launched at the resort in 2023 with a gala dinner on World Food Day, 18th November, also features in the Teppanyaki Experience. As with all six restaurants on offer at this 5-star Maldives island, there are dedicated versions of the menu catering to Vegan/Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and low-carb eating lifestyles so all guests can enjoy the live cooking action at the Teppan grill.

Chef Moosa Nazeer commented, “I am beyond thrilled to reintroduce our Teppanyaki at JA Manafaru. This was previously one of our most popular dining experiences, and we have taken a hiatus to refine and develop our offering. We can’t wait to see our guests enjoying this once again”.
