A plant-based diet has many benefits, for your own health and that of our planet, and at Hurawalhi Maldives you will be spoiled for choice with our imaginative meat-free dining. It may be that you are vegetarian or vegan, or that you simply consciously choose to have meat-free days, either way, you’ll find the culinary creations inspiring and even the steadfast meat-eaters will find themselves straying away from their carnivorous tendencies (but don’t worry your tastes are very well looked after too)!
The health benefits of a plant-based diet are much-publicized and are said to include having a positive impact on life expectancy, improving the circulatory and nervous systems as well reducing the likelihood of type 2 diabetes and cancer. Reducing consumption of meat is great news for the planet too – leading to less greenhouse gases released, less land and water needed to rear livestock which in turn means fewer habitats and species being lost.
But what about the taste? A popular myth is that if you don’t eat meat, you’ll be faced with dull alternatives but the culinary world has come a long way since the options of nut roast or vegetable lasagne were all you could find on menus. With your health and that of the environment in mind, much of the produce at Hurawalhi’s restaurants is homegrown. A wide assortment of vegetables, fruit and herbs are as fresh and organic as they could possibly get, making your dishes taste amazing! Make the most of the flavours and the freshness by choosing from the sumptuous buffets at Canneli Restaurant where 30% of the fayre is vegetarian, and having selected dishes cooked to your liking at the enticing live stations.
We pride ourselves also on our range of vegetarian and vegan dishes as well as a variety of super-foods that help you maintain a healthy lifestyle when on holiday. A fine-dining vegan experience under the ocean awaits at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, a gourmet take on popular junk food at JFK will find you not knowing where to begin when choosing between the plant-based culinary creations available. More imaginative meat-free dining is available at Kashibo too, the place where Asian street food is taken to another level.
