Novel dining experiences
Exclusive and utterly romantic dinners shared with your soulmate are sure to be remembered for the rest of time and at Kanuhura, there are a variety of exceptional options when it comes to where to set your special evening. From amongst fragrant herbs in the Chef’s Garden to seaside experiences, there’s something for everyone. One of our favourites, however, has to be a “dig-in dinner” where a table and seats are dug into the sand—a “sunken table” if you will—and which is then surrounded by candles and lights. You can appreciate a specially prepared dinner on the beach to the sound of the sea and under the stars—it’s nothing short of magical.
Sunsets at Iru Beach
There’s something wondrous and mesmerising about watching a sunset, especially when you are surrounded by pristine tropical surrounds of a highly sought after destination. While a sunset Dhoni Cruise is highly recommended, simply watching a sunset from the dreamy shores of Iru Beach is just as special.
Iru Beach is believed by many to be the best place from which to watch the Maldivian sunset and the experience is complemented by vibey music, gypset decor (think boho-inspired swings and teepees) and an unbelievable variety of classic and signature cocktails that will have you coming back for more. Savour the incredible quality time with your beloved as you soak up this sensational experience in paradise—this is the beauty of island living.
