Relax! It’s too hot to do anything else, except perhaps to decide whether to order from a menu of fresh salads, burgers, wood-fired pizza or pick up a choice cut of eye fillet or lamb loin to be grilled by yourself under the shade of a coconut grove, pausing briefly for a sip of your favourite beverage, chatting to fellow sun loungers with grillers. Opens from 11:00am to 10:30pm.
The Sunset Deck & Bar holds true to its name as it serves as the best place on the resort to enjoy an unhindered view of a dramatic, bold, Maldivian sunset, while sipping on your favourite drink.
