Kashiveli

Dine with toes in the sand at Kashiveli, which translates as “coral sands” in the local Dhivehi language. Steeped in a sense of place, Kashiveli spotlights fresh, nutritious ingredients—sourced from our organic garden and local waters—in a breezy outdoor environment. At night, the restaurant transforms into a buzzy night market, with globe-trotting flavours reimagined through locally grown produce. Guests will be transported to Bangkok, Marrakech, New Delhi and other foodie capitals — all from Gili’s idyllic island setting.

Underground wine cellar

Discover more than 500 varieties of wine from world-acclaimed and up-and-coming regions in our cavernous cellar. Our team of sommeliers will help you find the perfect bottle for the occasion—old world, new world, organic, biodynamic, or even non-alcoholic—regaling you with colourful, informative stories about the world’s most influential winemakers. Take your tasting to the next level by sampling gourmet dishes and wine pairings that have been hand-selected by our sommeliers.

By the sea

Surrounded by a tropical jungle and offering sweeping ocean views, our Japanese fine-dining restaurant is a feast of the senses.

Fini Foni

Swing by Fini Foni (which in Dhivehi means “cold sweet”) and order a popsicle or ice cream, all handmade using natural ingredients. Located by the pool and a stone’s throw from the tennis court, it’s the perfect place for a pick-me-up, a mouth-watering snack, or a hand-crafted cocktail

Over Water Bar

Standing on stilts above the lagoon, the Overwater Bar is the place to enjoy a light lunch, sunset cocktails, or a seafood dinner—with a side of panoramic sea views. Vegetables and herbs are plucked daily from our garden and the fresh catch is reeled in every morning. As sunset turns the sky afire, the Overwater Bar becomes a favourite gathering spot to watch the sun slip below the horizon with a tropical cocktail in hand.

Organic Garden

Taste the freshness of homegrown rocket and beach lettuce, chiles, basil, morning glory, fennel, pomegranates, bananas, and more, all grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Our chefs can prepare a garden-fresh meal amid the fruit and vegetable crops, with a comfortable lounge area and fire pit for post-meal relaxation.

Private Dining Experience

Discover the pleasure of the unexpected by opting for a private dinner hosted in different locations around the island. From a beachside barbeque with live music to a blindfolded “Dining for the Senses” experience, guests can customize the meal to their tastes and preferences. Or, let our team surprise you, whisking you away to a surprise location where you’ll enjoy our chef’s culinary creations in a dreamy setting
