Finolhu’s Kanusan crowned best Asian Fusion restaurant in Indian Ocean
Kanusan restaurant at Finolhu Maldives has been crowned the best Asian Fusion restaurant in Indian Ocean.
The continental award was presented to the restaurant at the 2018 World Luxury Restaurant Awards Gala held at the Galgorm Resort and Spa on July 14.
Located on the tip of island with sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, Finolhu’s premium dining venue of Kanusan spans two dining areas: a relaxed indoor dining space, and an open lower deck which encapsulates the archetypal Maldivian experience of being surrounded by the sights and sounds of the sea.
Centred around a stunning duck oven, Kanusan’s open kitchen puts its cuisine centre stage, embracing the theatricality of its Asian spirit. Classic favourites such as Mandarin roasted duck and Larb Gai are given a refreshing Kanusan twist, while newly created unique signature dishes include steamed snapper and lobster, black truffle roast duck and sliced blue abalone in Kanusan sauce.
Seating up to 60 guests, Kanusan also features a vibrant overwater bar area.
Just 30 minutes by speedboat from sister resort Amilla Fushi in the Maldives’ only UESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa atoll, Finolhu is a stylish and eclectic retreat with a buzzy bon-vivant vibe and a refreshing, retro-inspired burst of fun for the region. Bringing toes-in-the-sand relaxation to fun-loving beach-erati alongside the best DJs, live acts and most fabulously chic parties in the Maldives.
Finolhu’s 125 villas come on the ocean, the lagoon or by the beach, with or without pool in either one or two bedroom options being the ultimate island experience for chic couples, fun-loving families and gatherings of friends alike.
