Maldives Restaurants & Dining
18 July, 2022
Year-round warmth and beautiful beaches in the Maldives can have you dreaming of a drink long before happy hour. When it comes to fulfilling tropical fantasies, Kandolhu is the perfect place to escape with a drink in hand.
Poised at the waterfront, Vilu Bar is a prime spot to get your fix anytime from its extensive list of classic sippers and their inventive spins. Among the crowd favourites are Peach and Basil Smash, Kandolhu Sangria, Mango, Thyme & Cracked Black Pepper, Orange & Cinnamon Mojito, and Coral Reef Colada.
Imbibe in sensational cocktails according to your mood or let the bartenders surprise you with their concoctions. Try crafted blends such as the Port with Love, a signature creation by head bartender Deshan. It is a ruby red mixture of Portuguese port wine, Spanish gin, and chocolate bitters.
As the hip and happening place on the island, Vilu Bar also hosts special events such as movie nights under a starlit sky and cocktail soirees that gaze towards the expanse of the beach.
Sit back as you sip a tipple or two and admire the views at Kandolhu.
Bring the flavours of the tropics to your home with this tasty recipe that’s reminiscent of the island paradise.
