Votes are garnered through various marketing channels from guests, showcasing yet again the true value of service excellence.
Jumeirah Vittaveli repeated its success from last year’s awards with a renewed continental win for the Best Indian Cuisine in Indian Ocean for Swarna.
Swarna translates to ‘gold’ in Sanskrit, reflecting royalty and the rich heritage of Indian cuisine. The gold standard at Jumeirah Vittaveli, this impressive restaurant delights guests with creative flavours, complemented by an impressive arrangement of dishes. The restaurant comprises three open-air dining cabanas, one chef’s table, and a swing for after-dinner relaxation, all dotted throughout a Maharaja Style garden venue.
The scenic overwater venue Fenesse won two awards; a continental award for the Best French Cuisine in Indian Ocean and a regional title for the Best Ambience / Romantic Atmosphere in Indian Ocean.
Fenesse tantalises guests’ palate in an elegant yet warm setting. Featuring contemporary and classic cuisine inspired by the culinary regions of France, the dedicated team of professional chefs use only the freshest ingredients to prepare their outstanding dining menus.
Talise Spa at Vittaveli received the coveted continental title of Best Luxury Wellness Spa in Indian Ocean.
The spa is inspired by the meaning of the word ‘Vittaveli’ — vastness of space and eternal light — connecting the elements of light and space with the purity and vibration of its ingredients. These ingredients are hand-harvested by local communities using traditional farming methods to ensure healing life energy held in all living things will be honoured and handed down to guests through the unique products and treatments available at Talise Spa at Vittaveli. The spa also recently introduced Aerial Yoga and offers complimentary wellness and fitness sessions every day.
Located a short 20-minute ride on board a luxurious motorised catamaran from capital, Jumeirah Vittaveli offers unmatched diversity, subtle luxury and personalised exploration, whether you are seeking a romantic getaway or an exotic destination for your family.
