Seaside Finolhu’s Crab Shack wins Global Luxury Beachside Restaurant at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards
Best Luxury Hotels in Baa Atoll
18 Nov, 2020
Seaside Finolhu’s Crab Shack restaurant has been awarded a globaly win for best luxury beachside restaurant at the 2020 World Luxury Restaurant Awards.
After the resort’s elaborate transformation earning its place as a proud member of the exclusive Design Hotels portfolio, this recognition is another grand achievement for Seaside Finolhu.
Crab Shack’s charm has been impressing international celebrities such as English model and actress, Cara Delevigne sharing in an interview with Conde Nast Traveller in April 2020 that Crab Shack is her absolute favourite place to feast recalling her experience when she stayed in the resort back in 2018.
Crab Shack is described as a rustic seafood restaurant that offers a real toes-in-the-sand dining experience on a secluded stretch of beach.
Seaside Finolhu’s General Manager, Marc Reader said, “We’re so honoured and proud to receive this marvellous achievement for Crab Shack. We love our Crab Shack and our guests over the years have been captivated by this restaurant, including international celebrities. The dining experience here is absolutely fascinating; the laid-back vibe creates an ideal space to enjoy the island life while savouring your favourite seafood and wine as you admire the beautiful vista. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our guests and friends who voted for us.”
Located on the opposite side of Seaside Finolhu’s marvellous sandbank, Crab Shack can be reached by an immersive 7-minute traditional dhoni ride or a 20-minute walk along the beach. The restaurant transports diners to another world where guests can indulge in mouthwatering seafood in the rustic ambience of the open-fronted wooden shack while gazing out across the azure waters of the lagoon.
While Finolhu recently completed an extensive transformation process that will accentuate its image as a design-led luxury destination, the resort has also introduced new names and concepts for its dining outlets. Seaside Finolhu’s all-day dining restaurant now goes by the name of Beach Kitchen. Serving international fare during the day, Beach Kitchen also brings the resort’s culinary journey concept to life with destination-themed dining experiences each evening. The Arabian Grill serves up an exotic mélange of flavours from across the Middle East and North Africa with a highlight on freshly grilled fishes. The resort’s fine-dining restaurant has retained the name Kanusan but improved into a much more sophisticated ambience with a must-try live sushi corner. The Beach Club features the new library offering a relaxing spot to lounge on and the Beach Bar serving well-crafted drinks. For guests looking to grab a drink, the new Milk LAB serves a selection of refreshing milkshakes, protein drinks and fresh coffee.

Best Experience: Couples, Family, Beaches, Activities, Nightlife
Located in the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa Atoll, Finolhu came about as a reaction to the more familiar Maldives island. One of the newest resorts in the Maldives, Finolhu was born out of a desire to bring a fresh wave to the uninhabited island experience. Forget the images of the quiet Maldives paradise: here, fiery dancers, acrobats, world-famous DJs and top-class barmen keep the guests on tiptoe (starting from their bed). The retro atmosphere is the resort's main inspiring force that puts a fun stay at the heart of everything it offers. This cool island playground shakes things up with a fun and fresh spin on Maldivian luxury. The island boasts the longest (1.8 km) sandbank of all the famous Maldivian resort islands - expect to spend a lot of time explorering it. A long beach should not disappoint you either; beach club with retro cinema and old-school arcade; spa with fitness centre and beach gym; tennis courts; watersports; four restaurants; old-school tuck shop. In rooms: TV, iPod dock, DVD player, desk, air-conditioning, minibar, black-out curtain, Neal's Yard Remedies bath products. Read Full Review...
