Most Popular Vegetarian Dining in Resorts in the Maldives


July, 2019

The Maldives is a top luxury holiday destination known for diving, fabulous islands, a romantic honeymoon and white sandy beaches with clear turquoise waters. The islands have all the makings of a paradise, unless you are a vegan or vegan. But plans to travel to a remote island in a country where the national cuisine revolves around fish can cause concern, since even the thought of world-class luxury does not compensate for the idea of ​​being stuck in paradise where there is nothing to eat.

But times are changing and now there are several luxury resorts in the Maldives that have perfected vegetarian luxury. In these places you will not be deceived by the salad, in fact you will be spoiled for choice, indulging your delicate tastes and marveling at your appetite, as you eat the refined food of the gods, which is cooked without the use of animal products.

This 5-star award-winning resort is our other luxury choice for vegans and vegans in the Maldives, who in 2014 wins the World Travel Awards 'Best Water Villa in the World' award, so you know what you pay for this place.

Ocean Suites sit on stilts in the lagoon and are equipped with steps that descend into the water, where you can find an amazing coral reef, hundreds of tropical fish, and even sea turtles. Each villa has an elegant private infinity pool, comfortable hammocks stretched over the water and sofas on the terrace, ideal for complete relaxation, with views of the sunset on the ocean horizon.

Luxury suites - this is certainly good, and do not want to leave the villa, where each of them offers a "live card" with a view that will live with you forever.

 ayada maldives fine dinner

But the main draw at the hotel is the food, which makes Ayada Maldives a particularly tempting offer for vegans and vegans.

All you have to do is say that you are a vegetarian. Then relax and wait, because the most amazing food will come to your table, whether these dishes are on the menu or not, the talented team of Ayada chefs will not stop until you make sure that you get real taste of vegetarian luxury in every tasty piece.

You can eat healthy salads from their 'live' salad bar, where the chef will slice freshly picked vegetables especially for you, or you can order a vegetarian homemade burger with your favorite side dish and enjoy a relaxing lunch by the pool. Perhaps you are tempted by a few authentic Balinese dishes, rich in spicy peanut sauce and sweet 'kecap manis', or you choose a dish like their 'Vegetable Stack', made up of fresh crunchy vegetables, perfectly baked, with thick tomato sauce and served on the most creamy vegetarian puree you have ever tried.
Regardless of your choice, it is unlikely that you will be disappointed with what has come to the table, as service and quality are exceptional.

Sit and admire from the Ocean Breeze restaurant at Ayada Maldives as the sun sinks in the Indian Ocean, not forgetting to order new portions of vegetarian gourmet food during one of those unforgettable evenings that you will remember with a smile upon returning home.

Try 'Puy Lentil' salad with lentils marinated with parsnips, pine nuts and lemon juice, fresh and very crisp in taste, filled with aromas of roasted parsnips and pine nuts, or enjoy Italian polenta with herbs and fried eggplant with tomatoes, decorated with quite edible flowers.
All dishes are beautifully presented and cooked with love and attention, but they taste as good as they look, with subtle and wonderful aromas that adorn every single plate.

And as a retreat, we believe that Ayada Maldives serves the most fabulously presented Turkish coffee in the resort city called Ottoman Lounge, where a small glass cup of surprisingly strong and aromatic coffee comes to you on a spectacular silver tray, raising the luxury factor by another step or two.

4 Soneva Fushi

Booking.com

Best Experience:  Crusoe Villas, the beach houses, Spa, Family Holiday, beaches

Way out in the Indian Ocean, guests at a luxury Soneva resort are participating in the ultimate farm-to-table experience — and they even get to harvest the ingredients for their own dinners. The Soneva Fushi just opened Shades of Green, its new vegetarian restaurant at the exclusive Maldives resort. The seed for the vegetarian restaurant was planted when Copenhagen-based chef Carsten Kyster visited Soneva Fushi as a guest in March 2018. Kyster has worked at the River Café and The Sugar Club in London as well as travelling and working in Southeast Asia over the last 15 years. After eating a lunch made with ingredients from Soneva Fushi’s organic garden, inspiration struck. A year later, the 20-seat Shades of Green welcomes guests for intimate, plant-based dinners.

Before dining at the new vegetarian restaurant, guests take a guided tour of the garden, learning about the herbs, fruits and vegetables while picking dinner ingredients. They gather around a fire pit for an appetizer, then move to tables set beneath fruit trees to enjoy the remaining six courses. Dinner can last late into the night. Shades of Green’s menu will change with the seasons and is based around the colours red, green and yellow. Chef Kyster blends Maldivian and other Southeast Asian cuisines with Nordic culinary techniques, such as salting, smoking, pickling and fermenting. The meal is designed to fulfill six categories: cleanse, raw, crispy, grain, fire and sweet. For example, mangosteen kombucha paired with plums, beetroot vinegar powder and shiso leaves is a cleansing dish. A fire dish contains hotter ingredients, such as leeks and pepper sauce.

Soneva Fushi is located within the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve coral reef. Guests in the 61 private villas enjoy amenities like an open-air cinema, a high-tech observatory, a glassblowing studio, private butlers and 500 different wines — and now, a vegetarian restaurant, too.
