4. Manta Ray Treehouse

A exclusive dining experience can be found at the newly opened Joali Maldives. Guests at the Manta Ray Treehouse dine among the trees in spaces made from natural materials to mimic two of the giant underwater beauties. Each restaurant seats up to eight people and serves Maldivian cuisine that includes local classics including tuna with chilli and lime, fish curry, and native lobster.

5. Tai

One of COMO Maalifushi’s culinary options for visitors is oceanside dining at Tai. It translates as “red snapper” in Japanese, and it’s a sustainable fish that’s eaten with several others in their sunken sushi bar. Signature dishes include partially-grilled aburi rolls with ocean trout or Wagyu, as well as toothfish saikyoyaki (marinated in white miso). One exclusive aspect at Tai is the nightly presence of Aki-san, a 1.5-meter-winged stingray who swims next to the restaurant at sunset and loves being served premium sashimi.
