Velaa Private Island unveils redesigned Tavaru with new Teppanyaki menu
Velaa Private Island has unveiled a new look for its boutique Tavaru restaurant along with a new menu.
Tavaru, housed within the tallest building on the island overlooking its lagoon, has been given a new look. Along with the redesign of the restaurant comes a brand new menu celebrating Teppanyaki grill cuisine.
In an announcement, Velaa said Tavaru’s reopening reflects the resort’s aim to perfect its gastronomic experiences. With three independent Teppan grills, groups of different sizes will enjoy a private show by talented chefs, it added.
According to Velaa, Tavaru’s newly implemented lunchtime Bento Box concept pays tribute to the expertise of its chefs, with their mastery, craft and innovation for cultivating bold, creative sharing dishes in a modern light showcased through their extraordinary skill on the Teppanyaki grill plate. Bento Boxes encourage diners to once again rekindle their love for gastronomy by presenting traditional, time-honoured flavours in a fresh and contemporary way, it said.
“Touch the stars as you settle down to dinner… Watch the theatre of our talented chefs from a front-row seat as they slice, dice, season and create bespoke menus with particular flair and finesse right under your nose aside the sizzling hot iron plates of the Teppanyaki grill,” the announcement read.
“Enjoy the 360º view over Velaa while enjoying your favourite Bentobox, come and explore all our options!”
Tucked away within the collection of islands that form the northern Noonu atoll, Velaa Private Island is elegantly positioned to overlook enchanting vistas of a cerulean ocean. Its name derived from generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch; it is comprised of 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. The resort also includes a Romantic Pool Residence which can only be reached by boat.
At Velaa Private Island, all details have been considered: each villa comes with a personal butler, all services offered can be tailored to personal specifications. Attention to detail everywhere is also impeccable: stone pavements from the desert in Jordan, Indonesian flowerpots, luxury wood panelling from Borneo, and glimmering Italian marble.
Named one of the world’s Top Five Best Hotels and more recently the ‘Best Wedding Hotel in the Maldives’, Velaa Private Island offers endless exclusive opportunities. These unique offerings include the Maldives’ first and only snow room, the largest and most extensive wine collection in the region, one of the few Maldivian resorts with a private submarine, an extraordinary kids’ club conceptualised as the world’s ideal kids’ club by the owner’s seven-year-old daughter, and the only resort in Asia with a My Blend by Clarins spa.
Personalising and tailoring the entirety of the island depending on specific requirements, there is no limit to ensure the ultimate experience. Guests can sit back in the knowledge that the island’s highly trained and dedicated butlers will cater to each and every whim. Whether it is watching a spectacular fireworks display within the Maldivian night sky, dancing into the early hours with an Al fresco live music event, stepping aboard the island’s private yacht for a glamorous sunset cruise or enjoying a private, open air cinema night, anything is possible. Other interactive activities perfect for private groups include gourmet cooking classes with one of the resort’s chefs or wine tasting within the Maldives’ largest wine cellar.
For those looking to get involved in some Indian Ocean adventure, Velaa’s new high-tech water toys including the hover board, jetpack and fly board serve as the definitive adrenaline rush. While discovering the wonders beneath the island’s welcoming waters, guests can learn to dive or simply snorkel the coral rainbow.
