Food, Drink and Entertainment
1 OAK BEACH CLUB
Day or night, the 1 OAK BEACH CLUB is the place to be and the heart of the Finolhu gastronomic experience. Pick a spot poolside or on the beach and start the day with a leisurely long breakfast, grazing from the live cooking stations at the Baa Baa Beach Diner; hang out for chilled tunes and exotic cocktails from the world-class mixologists behind the decks and the bar; or come out to play as nightfall draws the crowds to the magnetic two-storey Bar.
Fish & Crab Shack
Like a mirage made real, the Fish & Crab Shack is an oasis of rustic chic deliciousness halfway along Finolhu’s stunning one-kilometre sandbar. Swim, stroll out across the sands, or take a Dhoni ride across the lagoon to while away a perfect afternoon: a long lunch under the coconut trees, swimming in the crystal blue lagoon and playing on the pristine white sand.
Bringing magical Maghreb flavours to the Maldives, the boutique-style Baahaa Grill restaurant will celebrate the legendary spice blends of pre-Moorish North Africa, where a town’s finest spice sellers were as famous as its rulers. Starting with mezze, this is a spice odyssey of mixes, rubs and marinades from Ras el Hanout to Baharat and Adwiya, where select cuts are spiced and grilled to perfection.
Finolhu’s old-school tuck shop, tantalisingly located on the corner where The Cove, THUNDERBALL on Palm Beach and the tennis courts meet. Milk Bar’s treats range from guilt-free to carefree, drawing a mix of peckish racketeers, gym bunnies, spa junkies and roaming guests to its shaded and indoor seating. Healthy drinks include amazing smoothies, juices, and Bodyism Shakes, while recharging snacks include fresh wraps and smashed avocado and acai bowls. ‘Naughty’ treats include ice creams and chocolates, amazing coffees, cool beers and wine by the glass.
The Cove Club
The Cove Club is a chilled out retro revival area of 60’s and 70’s where massage, movement and chill is medicinal and the fun glamorous side of this period is at play Stripping the spa concept back to the simple truths of wellness, movement and sound therapy, The Cove offers a calm, unintimidating haven in which to drop and anchor and just relax. Ten chandelier-lit treatment ‘Divans’ - each celebrating an iconic beauty of the 60s - are complimented by a fitness centre, yoga pavilion and outdoor ‘Palm Beach gym’. The island’s natural environment is the inspiration for fitness activities at The Cove, from capoeira and paddle boarding to ballet and kickboxing, while the facilities will also include a relaxation area overlooking the sunset, steam/sauna, wellness areas, salon and retail pavilion.
Nowhere on earth is the sea as captivating as it is here, lapping at the shores of Finolhu. The breathtaking waters of the Indian Ocean surrounding this pristine island offer endless opportunities to discover and explore a magnificent underwater world that lies beneath the glittering surface. This environment is so rich in marine life that the area was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2011, largely due to the population of majestic Manta Rays that visit Hanifaru during the southwest monsoon (usually between June and October).
