Mirihi Island Resort’s Muraka restaurant defends Wine Spectator Award of Excellence
Mirihi Island Resort’s Muraka restaurant has received the Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator magazine for another year.
The overwater Muraka restaurant carries outstanding list of more than 300 carefully selected wines from all corners of the world. The fine dining restaurant’s deck is the perfect spot on Mirihi to enjoy an apéro while watching the dazzling sunset over the Indian Ocean.
Wine Spectator’s Restaurant Awards recognise restaurants whose wine lists offer interesting selections, are appropriate to their cuisine and appeal to a wide range of wine lovers.
To qualify for an award, a wine list must present complete, accurate information, including vintages and appellations for all selections. Complete producer names and correct spellings are mandatory, and the overall presentation of the list is also considered.
Lists that meet these requirements are judged for one of three awards: Award of Excellence, Best of Award of Excellence, and the Grand Award.
The wine lists which are conferred the Award of Excellence typically offer at least 90 selections. They feature a well-chosen assortment of quality producers, along with a thematic match to the menu in both price and style. Whether compact or extensive, focused or diverse, these lists deliver sufficient choice to satisfy discerning wine lovers.
Located in the South Ari Atoll, Mirihi Island is an intimate resort with only 37 rooms, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere with friendly staff. Guests will immediately feel at ease in the safe and beautiful environment. With sand covered floors throughout much of the hotel, guests can relax upon arrival where they will be encouraged to abandon their shoes and enjoy their stay barefoot with the powder-soft sand between their toes.
Travellers looking to socialise and meet like-minded people can book sunset sailing trips, whale shark safaris, diving trips, visits to local islands, sessions tasting the most comprehensive selection of fine rum in the whole of the Indian Ocean, and can enjoy complimentary weekly beach cinemas, board games, table tennis, football and more.
Alternatively, guests can enjoy some time away from it all in their private water or beach villa, on a secluded beach or while enjoying a pampering spa treatment.
