The Residence Maldives offers a wide variety of options for fine or casual dining in any environment guests could desire, whether it be on the beach, over the water, or in their personal villa.
The Dining Room is the Residence Maldives' casual restaurant. Located on the beachfront near the lagoon, the Dining Room is a tropical bistro with plenty of outdoor and indoor seating. With its whicker seats and thatched roof, the Dining Room continues the island theme. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the Dining Room is perfect for guests who want a relaxing meal or light snack before hitting the beach and sun once again. The breakfast features an a la carte menu while lunch and dinner offers a variety of choices based on Asian and Indian ocean cuisine.
The Falhumaa is the Residence Maldives' take on fine dining, though the dress code only requires smart casual attire. Located at the end of a long pier, the Falhumaa sits over the reef, making for a wonderful dining ambiance. The walls are mostly open-air windows so guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean, along with the lovely ocean breeze. The décor of the Falhumaa matches the rest of the resort with whicker furniture, a thatched roof, and whitewashed walls. The Falhumaa does add a more elegant touch with a fine crystal chandelier, dark wood flooring, and an ambient candle light on every table. The menu features western cuisine with an emphasis on seafood and grilled meats plus a fine selection of wines from around the world.
For the ultimate in relaxed dining, nothing beats the Beach Bar. Located right next to the beach, the Beach Bar is decorated to blend in with the environment with white walls, light wood accents, and a traditional thatched roof. The Beach Bar offers a variety of island style drinks and light meals to keep guests full so they can maximize their time in the sun and sand. At night, the bar menu changes to feature a variety of tapas and signature infused spirits. The seating at the Beach Bar is the main attraction. Lounge chairs are available both on the bar deck and down on the beach next to the bar entrance. Large circle couches full of pillows and lush coaches are situated on the front porch for guests who want to take it easy. The best seats, especially for guests wishing to suntan, are the padded day beds with open tops located in the special sitting pool. Guests can get some sun while dangling their feet into the shallow pool.
For guests who want a more intimate and romantic dining experience, the Residence Maldives offers private dining in any capacity that guests can think of. Whether a dinner for two on the deck of their villa, a candlelit location on the beach, or even a meal on a private nearby island for a castaway dinner, the Residence Maldives' chefs and staff are ready and willing to put guests' dream dinner into action.
