Food, Drink and Entertainment

Main Restaurant

The Main Restaurant is a charming coconut-thatched building located on the southern side of the island. You can run your toes through the sand of the traditional Maldivian sandy floor as you enjoy your meal. At the Main Restaurant you can discover a range of tasty international buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our team of skilful and friendly chefs man the live cooking stations and are ready to whip up a dish tailored to your personal taste such as fresh pasta sauces or breakfast eggs just the way you like them.

Open daily until after midnight, The Main Bar serves alcoholic beverages including wine, beer, spirits, cocktails from 10am onwards while you can enjoy juices and carbonated drinks from 7am.

This is also the venue to visit in case you want to check your emails as it’s also our Wi-Fi hotspot.


Bathala is one of the most famous and legendary diving resorts in the Maldives. The resort has been providing guests with access to some of the most incredible dive sites in the country for more than a quarter of a century. The glorious house reef is a treasure-trove of wonders. Each time you dive it from any one of the six access points you’ll see something new, from sleeping nurse sharks hiding in a cave to a tiny and intricately detailed nudibranch resting on a rock. Shoals of reef fish of every colour of the rainbow create a technicolour spectacle, moray eels proudly peer out from holes and grey reef sharks cruise around the stunning coral reef. Some guests stay for one week and find enough to thrill them on the house reef alone. The Werner Lau Dive Centre is fully-equipped with a range of modern equipment and we provide daily diving excursions including half-day and full-day trips. Our team of welcoming dive staff are multilingual and highly professional.
