Luxury Maldivian destination Amillia Fushi and sister resort Finolhu have won a trio of awards at the annual World Luxury Restaurant Awards.

Amilla Fushi’s signature over-water restaurant Feeling Koi (pictured below) was presented with the regional awards for Best Luxury Waterside Restaurant and Best Japanese Cuisine in the Indian Ocean, while Finolhu’s Kanusan was named the Maldives’ Best Asian Fusion Restaurant.

So are these the finest restaurants in the Maldives?

The casual Feeling Koi infuses Izakaya-style dining with Latin style. The restaurant embraces Japanese minimalist design, with a private open-air dining room and open deck seating by the water’s edge.

There’s an open kitchen and climate controlled Sake library, including Feeling Koi’s own private label collection.

Finolhu’s premium dining venue Kanusan (above) offers an indoor dining space, and an open lower deck.  Centred around a duck oven, Kanusan’s open kitchen adds theatrics.

“The restaurant embraces Japanese minimalist design, with a private open-air dining room and open deck seating by the water’s edge.”

Located in the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa Atoll, the resorts can be reached by either seaplane,  30 minutes from Velana (Malé) International Airport, or by a 20 minute flight to Dharavandhoo Domestic Airport in Baa Atoll followed by a short speedboat ride.

Held at the Galgorm Resort & Spa in Northern Ireland, the World Luxury Restaurant Awards recognise culinary excellence and memorable experiences, with 84 categories at national, regional and global levels.
