Vibes is the ideal poolside dining restaurant during your stay at Lily. Each day after the kids had a full morning at the Kids Club and a fun snorkel in the ocean we headed to vibes for a casual and ambient lunch. The tables offer ocean and pool views and the lively atmosphere was perfect for our lunchtime mood. The delicious menu is full of comfort food to fill your appetites after a busy morning of swimming and beach activities. We loved the fresh seafood options and juicy burger and the kids were always pleased with their wood fired pizzas. Pair your meal with a fresh juice or crisp glass of white wine to truly unwind during your holiday.

Lily Maa

One of the best buffets we’ve had in the Maldives, Lily Maa offers a grand spread at breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. The sprawling restaurant incorporates indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the majestic turquoise blue waters, set beneath shady palm trees and surrounded by a relaxed ambiance. We loved the variety of fare from fresh pasta stations and wood fired pizzas to made to order sushi and mouthwatering BBQ fish. The themes change each day showing off the chef’s skill and ensuring your tastebuds are never bored even if you are staying for a longer period. We highly recommend trying the local job fish or grouper freshly barbecued after you select it from the ice display and save room for their extremely impressive cheese selection. A variety of wine is available on the all inclusive and you can even start your meal with a celebratory glass of champagne to truly enjoy your luxurious holiday.

Turquoise D’Aqua

Turquoise D’Aqua is the ultimate romantic spot for a memorable dinner under the stars during your stay at Lily. The adults only venue ensures you’ll have a quiet and romantic evening and the staff are always ensuring you have an enjoyable dining experience. We loved the Mediterranean inspired menu full of seafood, juicy steaks, and indulgent desserts. Grab a cocktail beside the pool before you move to your table and ask for wine recommendations to pair with your meal. If you’re looking for a one of a kind experience make a special request to dine in the unique and impressive tent or a the friendly staff can arrange a special table set up in a private area on the pool deck. The options are endless and Lily’s amazing team are always on hand to ensure you have a trip of a lifetime.

Delve into mouthwatering Indian and Thai fare at Lily’s a la carte dining restaurant. Tamarind is stunningly set over the water giving views of the starry sky. The beautifully lit tables are ideal for date nights and you might even be lucky enough to spot a few reef sharks during your meal.  Table service is efficient and friendly and staff are quick to recommend specialities or suggest the best wine pairing with your meal.  We loved the leisurely pace of our delicious three course dinner and had the opportunity to sample several Indian specialities using fresh ingredients. A perfect family night out or ambient date night if you’re craving a break from the buffet during your stay at Lily.
