Wine and Dine

Swarna translates to ‘gold’ in Sanskrit. True to its name, the restaurant is exclusive in its décor and ambience. Set in a lush garden with open-air dining cabanas, Swarna creatively interprets traditional Indian recipes to create a unique dining experience. 

Recognized as the “Best Indian Cuisine in Asia” by the World Luxury Restaurant Awards in 2016 and 2017, the restaurant’s menu features hand-picked ingredients from around the world. The signature Swarna Thali represents a journey through the rich heritage of Indian cuisine, all served on an oversized copper plate. 

For its 2nd anniversary, the ‘Gold at Swarna’ menu was launched – an exquisite dining experience including such rare luxuries as Iranian caviar, known for its delicate taste, black summer truffles, picked for their distinctive aroma, as well as Khasi lamb from Jaipur in Rajasthan. The lavish meal ends in a golden dessert truffle, infused with dark chocolate. Gold in edible form is added to each course, such as the gold-coated Himalayan pink salt or rose gold-coated lamb patty.

Explore the resort’s stunning house reef from the comfort of a semi-submarine. The first of its kind in the Maldives, the service will take you on a journey to explore the resort’s marine eco-system. The upper body of the vessel remains above the sea surface at all times while the bottom section is 1.3 metres below the water. The large windows of the underwater hull allow you to enjoy spectacular views of the underwater ecosystem, creating the illusion of a real submarine dive.

The semi-submersible vessel takes excursions along the resort’s house reef several times a day. A night-excursion is available as well to explore the unique night-time wonders around Jumeirah Vittaveli. As opposed to a snorkelling excursion, the guide will be able to point out marine creatures to all attending guests and explain their characteristics. After dark, guests can admire the entirely different underwater world that unfolds when the sun sets. They might see minuscule polyps on the coral reefs come to life and feed on surrounding plankton, or be able to observe eels, stingrays and sharks.

Our semi-submarine seats 12 guests and is available for group or private excursions.

Flyboarding is a fun and exhilarating water sport that combines a Jet Ski turbine with a wakeboard, enabling you to fly above the ocean or dive under like a dolphin. Our experienced instructors will ensure your safety and give you tips on how to start flying as soon as possible. Once you’re up in the air, tricks like 360 degree flips and swirls will come easy to you.

Open daily and inviting children of all ages, our fully equipped Kids Club and Teen Lounge offers a variety of services and facilities for children. It has its own children’s pool and games room complete with a host of recreational and educational activities conducted by a personable and attentive team.

Yoga is a science that has been practiced for thousands of years. It consists of ancient theories, observations and principles about the connection between the mind and body, a connection which has been proven by modern medicine.

The soothing views of the sea and the tranquil ambience of the island makes Talise Spa at Jumeirah Vittaveli the perfect place to start practicing yoga. Yoga is therapeutic and it helps you to become more aware of your body’s posture, alignment and patterns of movement. It makes the body more flexible and helps you relax even in the midst of a stressful environment. This is one of the foremost reasons why people want to start practicing Yoga – to feel fitter, be more energetic and find inner peace.

We offer complimentary morning and sunset group yoga classes for in-house guests on a regular basis. Our yoga guru is also available for private one-on-one sessions with the guests who wish to explore different aspects of these yoga practices.

Our spa team makes their own organic coconut oil in Maldives. This Maldivian-style homemade coconut oil is 100% pure and is harvested from coconuts that grow naturally on the island of Vittaveli. We use this organic oil in our signature treatments and it is also available for purchase in the spa boutique.

Join us every Friday at our Maldivian night at Samsara, where the Talise team shows you how pure coconut oil is produced in the traditional way. You will also get to sample the coconut oil during the different stages of this process.

The pure organic coconut oil is beneficial in many ways including the following:

  • Haircare – Coconut oil is one of the best natural conditioners for your hair. Besides aiding the re-growth of damaged hair, it also helps in healthy growth of hair by providing a shiny coating.
  • Skincare – Coconut oil is an excellent hydrating massage oil as it acts as an effective moisturiser on all types of skins including dry skin. Coconut oil is a safe solution for nourishing dry and flaky skin.
