Fresh in the Garden Restaurant – organic produce
Soneva Fushi & Six Senses Spa is one of the most luxurious resorts in the Maldives and it is not that easy to get to, even if you are living in the Maldives. First a flight to Male International Airport and after that the last 113 kilometers in a small seaplane that almost takes you all the way to Kunfunadhoo Island in Baa Atoll which is the small paradise island that is leased by Six Senses. The very last bit is in a boat to the island from a small platform called the Soneva Fushi International Airport which has to be the smallest airport in the world since it is just a small platform in the middle of the sea.
There are several restaurants to choose from with varying quality offered, but one of the best on Kunfunadhoo Island is the Fresh in the Garden Restaurant. Soneva Fushi & Six Senses Spa is very aware of Mother Nature and its aim is to reduce their carbon emissions to zero by the end of 2012 and they are already well on the way to reach that goal. The Fresh in the Garden Restaurant grows its own organic vegetables, fruits and herbs and its eco conscience is clear and present everywhere. It would have been easy to just fly in all sorts of delicacies, but the restaurant and the whole resort really make efforts to stay on the green side.
You cross a small wooden suspension bridge before you enter the Fresh in the Garden Restaurant where the majority of the tables are under the stars and set out over a banana plantation with fantastic views of the gardens and lush jungle. Dinner is served until 10.30pm, but you have better make a reservation well in advance to avoid disappointments. The à la carte menu is changed on a daily basis and you will have five choices per course, in which all the dishes will be created from organic produce. You can choose the classic beef with some added island vegetables and fruit. It does not offer the most spectacular meat you have had, but it is good. In addition you also have dishes on the menu that are health-conscious with fresh offerings as well.
Fresh in the Garden Restaurant is one of the two best restaurants at Soneva Fushi & Six Senses Spa that is one of the best island resorts available in the Maldives. Some of the restaurants do not offer the quality that matches the hefty rate per night for any of the villas you stay in and you will not go to Kunfunadhoo Island for just one night so make sure to pick the island’s best, like the Fresh in the Garden Restaurant.
