Velassaru Maldives revamps Turquoise all-day dining restaurant
Velassaru Maldives has revamped its Turquoise restaurant.
Following a two-week refurbishment, the all-day dining restaurant now sports a fresh new look, created by Olive Garden Interior Design, the same team behind the resort’s Vela buffet restaurant and Fen Bar.
Choosing materials that resonate the resort’s brand identity, Turquoise is now a vibrant and modern all-day dining venue with a warm and airy atmosphere that feels like you have stepped into a chic garden. While the accent shiplap walls and the copper and resin lamps around the restaurant allow the design to blend in with both outlets, Interior Design Specialist Mei Kheng Leong designed the restaurant’s interior by bringing the outdoor and natural elements in.
“The revamped restaurant has kept its laid-back vibe and diners can still enjoy the uninterrupted views of the infinity pool from the expansive outdoor deck,” an announcement by the resort read.
Along with the refurbishment comes a new menu, which includes fabulous new burgers and revised dessert options.
Owned and operated by leading local hotel group Universal Resorts, Velassaru is located in South Male Atoll and accessible by a short 25-minute speedboat ride from the main Velana International Airport.
Velassaru offers luxurious beachfront and overwater accommodation with uninterrupted ocean views. Featuring wooden ceilings and floors for a tropical atmosphere, the contemporary-styled villas and bungalows offer chic serenity.
A wide variety of international specialities are offered at Velassaru’s five restaurants, including fresh contemporary seafood, Japanese, international and grill pan Indian options. The two beach bars serve cocktails and wines.
Guests can enjoy relaxing spa treatments in overwater pavilions, or hop on a Maldivian boat and watch the crew demonstrate traditional fishing methods. Other resort facilities include a fitness centre, tennis court and infinity pool with the view of the beach and the ocean.
