WHEN THE FISHING BOATS COME IN
As a native of Ceylon I have been on the Maldives for a long time. I originally wanted to become a football player, but then decided to train as a cook. I’ve worked at various resorts in the Maldives, but Finolhu with its long beaches is unique. I especially like the fact that the fishermen come several times a week and offer us the best the sea has to offer, such as snapper, mackerel and jobfish, which live mainly in reefs and are extremely tasty. Fish dishes are the special feature of our cuisine!

Luxury means a wealth of choice. In Finolhu you can choose between four different restaurants, depending on your mood. Our chef has created a unique concept for each of them, but what they all have in common is a fine blend of craftsmanship, individuality and an international style that appeals to everyone. The freshness of the products is particularly important to him and his team.
It’s quite possible that you’ll experience a spectacle here as early as breakfast time – for example when a group of dolphins takes centre stage. At the Baa Baa Diner you’ve got a front-row seat. Located right by the sea, our diner is the culinary centre of Finolhu. In the morning, at lunchtime and in the evening international dishes are freshly prepared at various sections of the buffet. A wide selection of dishes delights vegans, vegetarians, fish fans and meat lovers alike. On various evenings our chef and his team serve typical country specialities: Italian, Asian, Middle Eastern or South American. Really delicious! Check out the menu and the beverage menu.
Breakfast: 7.30 am – 10.30 am
Lunch: 12.30 pm – 2.30 pm
Dinner: 7.30 pm – 10.30 pm
This is our fine-dining restaurant. At Kanusan the culinary focus is Asian. The restaurant is located right in the Indian Ocean and can be reached via a short wooden jetty. It has its own bar where you can enjoy an aperitif while you get in the mood for dinner. And you can do this either on the outside veranda or inside the restaurant, which is atmospherically showcased with dimmed light. A place for romantics, where anything can happen while you enjoy the finest sushi or a sublime interpretation of a larb gai. A marriage proposal, for example. And for those who already have this behind them, the menu also includes a honeymoon dinner! Have also a look at the menu, the kids menu, and beverage menu.
Dinner: 7.30 pm – 10.30 pm
At the BaaHaa Grill our chefs take you on a culinary trip to North Africa. A sensuous feast for the palate, for the nose and even for the ears, when the sound of the fresh meat sizzling on the table mixes with the lapping of the waves. Maghreb spices such as cardamom, cumin, nutmeg, cinnamon and turmeric unfold an all-round feeling of wellbeing – for example in a tajine or delicious mezze dishes containing fish, meat and vegetables – and perhaps the best humus outside Tunisia and Morocco. Please check out the menu, the kids menu and the beverage menu.
Dinner: 7.30 pm – 10.30 pm
Down to earth food
Just a minute. Doesn’t this little Crab Shack, appealingly crafted out of wooden planks, remind us of our dream of living on a deserted island? Those who stroll from the main island across the sandbank will reach it in about 20 minutes – a great walk. In the morning to welcome the day in peace and quiet with a coffee and a croissant. At lunchtime to enjoy prawns accompanied by a glass of wine. In the evening to watch the setting sun with a drink and a few snacks … and to experience once again what happiness feels like! Please check out our menu, kids menu and beverage menu.
Lunch: 12.30 pm – 3.30 pm
calling the tune
This is where it all happens. If you want to hear laid-back sounds you can enjoy the music here from early in the morning until late in the evening. Exotic cocktails to the beats of top DJs? Off to the Beach Bar! Pool parties inspired by the slogan “White nights? Off to the Beach Bar! A marriage proposal on our upper deck directly under the starry sky? Off to the Beach Bar. Performances by world-class artists? Off to the Beach Bar. Or just lying in a hammock and letting the music flow over you? Off to the Beach Bar.” Yes, as you’ve probably noticed, the Beach Bar is the unmistakable heart of the resort. It gives Finolhu a further unmistakable feature among the resorts in the Maldives – it’s as if this bar comes with a touch of Ibiza and Mykonos. In its indoor and air-conditioned section film classics and international sporting events are shown live – after all, there are events you enjoy sharing with other people. Have a look at the snack menu and the beverage menu.
Beach Bar: 10.00 am – 1.00 am
Beach Club: 10.00 am – 6.00 pm
Quick and easy snacks
Wherever your journey takes you in Finolhu, you’ll always pass by the Milk Bar. What could be more convenient? A milkshake after a game of tennis. A protein drink after your workout or an espresso when you take a break. Our Milk Bartender is looking forward to your visit!
