coconut oil-making in the maldives

11 January, 2024

Live like a local: Sun Siyam Iru Veli embarked on a captivating journey into the heart of Maldivian heritage, honouring tradition and culture through a mesmerising coconut oil-making event. Guests found themselves immersed in an enchanting experience, personally partaking in the age-old art of coconut oil extraction—a beautiful exploration that unveiled the rich cultural tapestry of the Maldives. 

This activity was a fantastic display of local customs, with skilled artisans demonstrating the intricate art of husking coconuts, expertly grating coconut flesh, and skillfully cooking coconut oil. Guests were invited to join in the process, gaining hands-on experience and a deeper appreciation for the time-honoured techniques involved in producing this versatile and beneficial oil.

The Sun Siyam Iru Veli team spared no effort to ensure that this educational and enjoyable activity became a regular occurrence. Attendees were treated to a delightful array of coconut-based drinks and snacks, providing a refreshing taste of Maldivian culinary traditions. The atmosphere was filled with joy as guests immersed themselves in the local culture, savouring the flavours and embracing the communal spirit of the occasion. 

Engaging in coconut oil making at Sun Siyam Iru Veli served as a unique opportunity for guests to learn about the numerous health benefits associated with coconut oil. In addition to its culinary uses, attendees gained insights into the holistic advantages of incorporating coconut oil into their daily lives, both in cooking and as part of a skincare routine. 

Sun Siyam Iru Veli remains committed to offering guests not only a luxurious stay but also an authentic and enriching experience that celebrates the beauty of Maldivian culture. The coconut oil-making activity set the stage for a regular immersion into Maldivian tradition, relaxation, and the warmth of traditional Maldivian hospitality.
