Male’ Maldives, 15th December 2022 – Oaga Art Resort introduces a culinary journey of Maldivian experiences from theatrical dining, artisanal beers, street-style food stalls and tiffin box deliveries, these luxury dining options are far from the usual dining experiences offered in the Maldives.
Situated in North Kaafu Atoll, Oaga Art Resort is 45 minutes by speedboat from Velana International Airport in Male’. A small island with 60 villas with beach and over water options, 4 dining venues and a spa inspired by Maldivian traditional healing practices, Oaga Art Resort’s artistic and creative spaces offer an immersive experience curated by local and visiting artists, and craftsmen from the Maldives.
Kaa Kada: the main restaurant
Kaa Kada loosely translates to “Food Stalls”. This outlet takes inspiration from the ultimate comfort of food served on a busy street. Those small unassuming stalls, the taste of which you can always count on to hit home without fail. The bustling and vibrant street-style carts in this main restaurant offer oriental, South Asian, seafood, mixed grill and pasta options. Guests can watch the chefs behind the counter as they prepare the a la carte’ meals, and enjoy it in a humble and cozy island setting. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Kaa Kada are part of the all-inclusive package offered at Oaga Art Resort.
For guests looking for dining options after restaurant closing hours, the resort has one stall called “Dhankada” or “Midnight Munchies” which is open from 11pm to 6am, all days of the week. Dhankada gives a very familiar notion for anyone who enjoys late nights. Last but not least, if guests are too tired to walk to the restaurant, they can opt for the Thashibari delivery service and have their food delivered on a tricycle and in a tiffin box. The first delivery is always on the house.
Samaasaa: theatrical dining
A first in the Maldives, this specialty restaurant offers a theatrical experience bringing the guests’ dinner tables, the folktales of the Maldives. As the story unfolds scene by scene, so does the guests five-course dinner. Guests can immerse themselves in the tales of lore depicting scenes of sorcery while being served dishes such as Sihuru afterwards. The restaurant is located in the furthest corner of the island and is reminiscent of the intimacy offered by a traditional Fann’ge, a hut with palm thatchings. Pre-booking of tickets for the show are required.
Raa Baa: the main bar & pool
The vibe is always on at the main bar and pool. The bar serves a simple snack food menu which includes Japanese options such as sushi and tempura. Raa Baa recommends the guests to take a few laps in the largest hand painted mural pool in the Maldives, or join the crowd in the party pods. The pool parties are elevated with a twist of Maldivian Bodu Beru beats. Guests are offered an unlimited selection of alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages, snacks and evening high tea as part of the all-inclusive package.
Sobi Baa: the beer garden
This bar offers a carefully curated collection of artisan beers and gin from around the world. It is the ideal place to spend a tropical afternoon, and guests can experience one beer tasting for free during their stay.
