Dining

KASHIVELI

Located directly on the beach and open for breakfast and dinner, Kashiveli embodies locally-sourced, nutritious ingredients and vibrant flavours through a marriage of land and ocean. Breakfasts celebrate the region’s wide variety of fresh tropical fruits with an ever-changing array of smoothies, juices and fresh fruit plates made to order, as well as traditionally Maldivian offerings such as Mas Huni and international favourites. Four evenings per week see the beach and overwater bar transformed with a buzzing market experience, with the Asian Street Market, Mediterranean Spice Souk, Passage to India and Maldivian Seafood Grill nights.

BY THE SEA

Engulfed by Gili's tropical jungle and offering sweeping ocean views, this intimate restaurant presents a Japanese fine-dining feast that is an affair to remember. Enjoy exquisite sushi, sashimi and specialties from seasonal tasting menus and interact with a highly skilled teppanyaki chef as he puts on a show. By The Sea’s extensive sake list is sure to impress, and if you need any guidance the resort's knowledgeable sommeliers know what to suggest.

OVERWATER BAR

Standing on stilts in the lagoon, the Overwater Bar floats in a dreamy landscape and offers breathtaking, uninterrupted sea views. At lunchtime, find salads fresh from the organic garden, Mediterranean dishes, the catch of the day and daily chef’s special. For a healthier option, consider the light yet nutritional and substantial dish from Hari’s super food menu. Come sunset, it’s where you’ll want to be with a coconut martini in hand, relishing the balmy evening breeze.

UNDERGROUND WINE CELLAR

A unique underground wine cellar that is home to a wide range of wines from around the world, a cosy space to learn more about wines with the team of knowledgeable sommeliers. Gili's cavernous cellar hides at the bottom of a flight of glass stairs and was designed around a huge piece of driftwood that was once swept ashore. It houses more than 500 varieties of wine from numerous international regions.

DIVING

Delve into the Maldives’ theatrical underwater world with Ocean Paradise Dive Centre – a PADI-certified outlet operating at Gili Lankanfushi. Multilingual expert instructors run day and night dives and courses for all levels. As the 9th most environmentally responsible dive centre in Asia, the team takes environmental practices seriously – you can even join a science dive and collect data for the likes of SharkWatch and the Manta Trust. For those who have never dived before, try a Discover Scuba Diving session, which takes just three hours to complete.
