DIN­ING by DE­SIGN

DestinAsian - - DISPATCHES | JOURNAL -

Trav­el­ing gour­mands will be spoilt for choice at The Res­i­dence by Cenizaro’s Mal­di­vian re­sorts. Des­ti­na­tion din­ing is part of the ap­peal at The Res­i­dence Mal­dives at Fal­hu­maa­fushi by Cenizaro, lo­cated on a pri­vate is­land in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll. Fresh seafood and grilled meats – paired with fine wines – are the fo­cus at The Fal­hu­maa, po­si­tioned above the house reef at the end of a jetty. An­other stand­out is beach­front bistro The Din­ing Room, which dishes up a va­ri­ety of in­ter­na­tional and In­dian Ocean cui­sine made with a con­tem­po­rary twist. The Beach Bar, mean­while, of­fers light meals and re­fresh­ing is­land- style drinks by day along with tapas af­ter dark. For some­thing even more in­dul­gent, opt for an in-villa float­ing break­fast en­joyed in the pri­vacy and com­fort of your pri­vate plunge pool. Over on neigh­bor­ing Dhig­u­rah Is­land, and linked to Fal­hu­maa­fushi Is­land by a bridge, The Res­i­dence by Cenizaro’s se­cond Mal­di­vian prop­erty is slated to open next year with 173 spa­cious vil­las im­mersed in na­ture. Each villa has been built with the finest lo­cal ma­te­ri­als, mar­ry­ing tra­di­tional Mal­di­vian ar­chi­tec­ture with mod­ern de­sign and con­ve­niences. Else­where on Dhig­u­rah, sump­tu­ous lo­cal spe­cial­ties and bold Asian fla­vors prom­ise to ex­cite the palate. Sig­na­ture ocean-fac­ing restau­rant Li Bai will spe­cial­ize in Can­tonese fare, while sun­down­ers can be en­joyed along­side shar­ing plates at ocean­front venue Long Is­land or tapas and Mediter­ranean cui­sine at the beach- club eatery Café del Sol.
