Your holiday at Hurawalhi is booked; your summer wardrobe is updated; perhaps you even sneaked an inflatable unicorn pool floaty into your husband’s suitcase – you are all set to go to the Maldives!
Hurawalhi is a new resort, so chances are none of your friends can offer you first-hand advice on things you absolutely must do. Some advance planning, however, goes a long way, all the more so because your holiday is likely to be rather short. For you to get the most from your days on the island, Food and Beverage Manager Niklas Bernstein happily shares his personal selection of pastime activities you can tick off in a single day.
Niklas’top food and beverage experiences:
Make full use of the hush privacy of your villa and start your day off right with a continental breakfast from our in-villa dining menu.
After snorkelling with schooling bannerfish at The Wall, snag a spot by the infinity pool at Coco Bar to enjoy views of Dream Island – they are the prettiest when admired with one of Hurawalhi’s signature cocktails in hand. Niklas’ picks: Hurawalhi Fizz and Lhaviyani Cooler.
Head over to the oceanside Aquarium Restaurant for lunch. Order Blue Marlin with soba noodles, pak choi, mushrooms and ginger broth.
Spend the afternoon diving – because when at Hurawalhi…
Walk down to the Champagne Pavilion for a pre-dinner rendezvous and sip on the exclusive Devaux champagne. Keep your eyes peeled for pods of dolphins passing by.
Plan well ahead to secure your table at the first dinner seating at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant. Dining at the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant is exciting in and of itself, yet seeing the venue in both daylight and at nighttime is truly remarkable. Take this as the insider tip!
Behind Niklas’ electric blue eyes is a clever man – one who knows there is no better way to wrap up the day than with a cold San Miguel and a shisha at Coco Bar. Holding your darling in your arms while doing so of course goes without saying!
Sounds like a perfect day!
