Hurawalhi Maldives’ 5.8 Undersea restaurant hosts Michelin-starred chef Stefan Heilemann
This January, Hurawalhi Maldives added an extra tingle of excitement: from Wednesday to Sunday, the resort’s 5.8 Undersea restaurant hosted two Michelin-star chef Stefan Heilemann.
Heilemann, Executive Chef at the famed Ecco Zürich restaurant in the Atlantis by Giardino, offered diners the chance to savour top cuisine, below the ocean. Said to have the precision of a watchmaker and the curiosity of a biologist, Heilemann presented daring lunch and dinner set menus that dazzled and delighted guests, with the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant of course being the cherry on top of this remarkable dining experience.
Officially inaugurated in January 2016, the five-star Hurawalhi resort is accessible by a 40-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main airport, and offers 90 villas, including 60 Ocean Villas and 30 Beach Villas, for grown-ups who are seeking luxury and innovation. The villas are stylishly and beautifully conceived featuring soothing décor, sumptuous linens on king size beds, bleached wooden floors, and private terraces with panoramic views.
There is an ocean of delights to take in at Hurawalhi Maldives: dining at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, snuggling up with your darling under a blanket or sparkling stars on the iconic Dream Island sandbank, falling in love with the plethora of marine life on the island’s doorstep – in fact, one visit to the resort is hardly enough to experience it all.
