Besides holding the prestigious honour of being one of the first luxury resorts in the Maldives, Kanuhura Resort & Spa has also become famed for its large selection of restaurants, boasting ten delectable restaurants and bars. For many travellers who rank exquisite culinary experiences as high on their must-have-list, Kanuhura is the first choice.

A Mano - All Day Dining

Designed with the aesthetic of local market food stalls, A Mano All Day Dining restaurant offers an impressive selection of pan-Asian and international cuisine. Enjoy the theatrical experience of visiting the different cooking stations and choose from exotic local dishes, hearty home-style roasts, healthy salads, delicious pastas and tempting desserts.

Bottega - Italian Cuisine

There are few people in this world who don’t enjoy a classic Italian pizza or pasta. Bottega brings guests a blend of original and authentic flavours from selected regions in Italy, set against the tropical backdrop of the island. Whether you’re dining as part of a group or as a couple, Bottega will cater to your needs while showcasing the very best in Italian cuisine.

Fogo - Brazilian Cuisine

Open for dinner and occasionally lunch, Fogo offers a delectable array of grilled meats and seafood in a relaxed candle-lit, Brazilian-style setting. Dinner can be enjoyed under the stars overlooking the beachside.

Dhoni - Floating Restaurant

One of the island’s most unique culinary offerings, Dhoni allows guests to enjoy the ultimate champagne, caviar and oyster experience on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni. Preceded by a spectacular sunset cruise, the elegance of the Dhoni and the atmosphere of the ocean is only improved by a tempting barbeque and the selection of fine champagne and wines.

Drift - Jehunuhura Island Grill

Drift brings another exclusive, unique dining experience to guests of Kanuhura. Located on Jehunuhura, the resort’s own private island, Drift is a grill restaurant and getaway all in one, allowing guests the opportunity to indulge in expertly grilled food with the ocean lapping at the shore just a few metres away.

Dagas - Maldivian Fusion Cuisine

Dagas is named after the mythical tree at the end of the world where, according to Maldivian folklore, seafarer Bodu Niyami Kalefanu sailed in search of the prized tuna fish. Keeping to its tradition, Dagas offers a culinary interpretation of the many rich cultures of the Maldives, which is also reflected in its décor and meats and seafood are grilled in front of guests.

Cowry Club - Infinity Pool Bar

Choose from local and international cocktails all crafted by the resident expert mixologist. We recommend opting for the more exotical Maldivian cocktails while soaking up some sultry jazz and the vibrant Brazilian Bossa Nova beats.


The Deli is one of Kanuhura’s most underrated gems. Refreshing ice creams will delight guests who’ve been basking in the sun and a selection of sandwiches and freshly baked pastries and cakes are sure to tempt guests at tea time. The variety of exotic teas and freshly brewed coffees complete the experience of the relaxed, casual setting, but if you’re looking to explore the island instead, the Deli can prepare a beautiful picnic basket for you upon request.

Iru - Sunset Beach Lounge

The Iru lounge is conceptualised to offer an array of experiences throughout the day and into the evening; low table seating for picnics, swings at the bar, tents to lounge in, games tables and beach rocking chairs all ensure that guests are comfortable and catered to from the moment they settle down. It is the perfect spot to marvel at the mesmerising Maldivian sunset while enjoying lounge music and exotic cocktails, along with a DJ on selected evenings.

Chef’s Herbs Garden

As the name suggests, this restaurant is set in a beautiful herb garden, where a selection of herbal infusions can be prepared upon request. Exquisitely prepared dishes are all made using the finest, freshest herbs, and culinary enthusiasts will delight in the opportunity to attend interactive cookery classes.
