Hurawalhi Maldives opens new overwater Kashibo Restaurant
Hurawalhi Maldives has opened a new overwater restaurant, Kashibo Restaurant and Bar.
The contemporary Kashibo Restaurant (kashibo is Dhivehi for sea urchin) hits the spot with a picture-perfect setting and a divine dining menu in equal measure. Executive Chef Warren Moore has created a sweeping menu of traditional delicacies with a light contemporary twist that all lovers of Asian street food will undoubtedly enjoy.
At Kashibo, guests can pamper their palate with everything they love about Chinese, Thai, Indonesian and Vietnamese cuisine, amongst others, and revel in a range of seafood staples and vegetarian dishes. From zesty Vietnamese Vegetable Tacos and Balinese Buffalo Wings to Thai Lobster Tail and Chai Masala Gateau, not to forget the ever-popular Teppanyaki, lunch and dinner at Kashibo deliver a taste of Asia at its best.
An eclectic beverage menu at Kashibo Bar will entice guests with creative, Asian-inspired Martinis, cocktails and mocktails made with fresh ingredients such as watermelon, lime, ginger, lemongrass, lychee, basil and cucumber, many of which are grown on the island. After having the Chili Margarita or the Gingspresso Martini, guests can get on the shochu bandwagon by sampling the in-house mixologists’ innovative cocktails paying homage to one of Japan’s most beloved spirits.
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.
