Ithaafushi – The Private Island at Waldorf Maldives - Amber lounge

17 Aug, 2021

The Maldives vacation isn’t complete without enjoying the sunset at least once. Watching the sun plunges into the Indian Ocean and then illuminate the sky with a range of reds, oranges, and purples is one of life’s great pleasures.

Sunsets over Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi seem to change on a daily basis. In the dry season, you can watch the sun go down like a brilliant illuminated ball, while in the rainy season, the clouds create a colorful palette and designs that you have to see to believe.

Here are our suggestions for the best places to see the sunset at Waldorf Astoria Maldives.

1. Shimizu

Ithaafushi – The Private Island at Waldorf Maldives

A celebration of modern Japanese cuisine with contemporary Japanese design, Shimizu focuses on serving locally sourced lobster and fish. Boasting a contemporary design, the striking over-water structure made from bamboo, was designed to mimic an ocean wave. Shimizu, which means clear water in Japanese, is a nod to the gentle waves below, while the restaurant’s long wooden pathway is reminiscent of the entryway of a traditional Japanese sanctuary.

The menu meanwhile, was created with global influences in mind by chef Andrei Palm and his team of chefs, who together have a combined 55 years of experience in high-end Japanese restaurants.

Hailing from South Africa, Nepal, Indonesia and the Philippines, each chef has incorporated flavours from their native countries into the artistry of dishes served.

Elsewhere, Shimizu’s sake sommelier Abdhulla Saeed helps guests navigate the extensive sake selection, as well as the collection of Japanese whiskeys on hand. Offering a flight of sake, Saeed will take guests on a journey through Japanese flavors and help guests learn more about the beverages on offer.

2. Terra
