Dream Island Dinner with Your Toes in the Sand
Tapping into the ubiquitous soft sand, fiery sunsets and the flavourful staples of Maldivian cuisine, the divine veli dinner (veli stands for sand in Dhivehi language) allows you to fully succumb to the marvels of the Maldives while being seated at a luxuriously decorated table dug into the powdery sand.
The pleasant feeling of scrunching sand with your toes is complemented with your taste buds receiving their fair share of excitement: some of the delectable dishes on Executive Chef Warren Moore’s menu include sesame-seared Maldivian ahi tuna with chiffonade cucumber salad, sesame oil, ginger dressing, orange segments, avocado pearls and crispy seaweed, and banana tempura, coconut shaving nougat and Gru Kiru boakiba in a shell of coconut.
The tone of the evening is further set by the lapping of the waves against Dream Island and Maldivian breeze gently flickering the torches at this magic, one-of-a-kind celebration of fine dining, Hurawalhi style.
The Dream Island Veli Dinner is a group dining event, with the sand arrangement sitting about 10 guests, making it suitable for both solo travellers, couples, as well as larger parties of guests.
