Dining / Resturants

Ba’theli Restaurant & Lounge

Milaidhoo is home to the first restaurant in the Maldives that specialises in gourmet local island cuisine, featuring dishes inspired by the Maldivian Spice Route. Named after the ancient wooden sailing vessels that brought spices and knowledge of other countries to the islands, Ba’theli by the Reef is one of the few fine-dining restaurants in the world that encourages its diners to come barefoot. Ba’theli’s architecture reflects its heritage, built to resemble three boats that are supported by pillars so it appears to be floating by the reef in the lagoon.

The story of Ba’theli boats began over 5,000 years ago when the Maldives was a key port of call for trading vessels sailing from Indonesia and India to Arabia with cargoes of cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, cloves, ginger and pepper. The Maldivian islanders bartered coconuts, sun-dried fish, cordage, cowrie shells and sails woven from coconut fibre for spices, rice, ceramics and silks. These locally-made cargo boats, or Ba’theli in the Maldivian language, collected these goods and sailed throughout the archipelago trading them, spreading knowledge about different lands, their customs and cuisine.

The menu created by the chef at Ba’theli by the Reef features dishes that originated in the Maldives, adapted for a gourmet palate. As in traditional Maldivian dishes, cooking techniques and ingredients come from around the Indian Ocean, India, Sri Lanka, and Southeast Asia. The restaurant concept is part of the Milaidhoo ethos to offer guests a very Maldivian holiday with a real sense of island life; the dining experience is truly island inspired, based on the culture, tradition and history of this destination.

To us, in villa dining means the creation of a magical experience for our guests in the privacy of their own accommodation, 24 hours a day. The menu includes a carefully curated selection of dishes designed to please and satisfy a craving for something different; our chefs make it just right.
