Already offering an exceptional dining experience with the highest restaurant-to-room-ratio in the Maldives, stylish 30-villa boutique resort Kandolhu Maldives is proud to announce the opening of its fifth restaurant, Mexican and Peruvian street food offering Ata-Roa.

Serving up authentic, simple and light street food with classic and unique takes on ceviche and tacos, the mouth-watering menu was created by Executive Chef Mickaël Farina – inspired by his recent trek across South America.

Open every day bar Wednesdays, Ata-Roa offers guests intimate service and authentic execution using the finest ingredients with a focus on local produce. Located on the Noovilu Sports jetty, guests are invited to sit down grill-side to watch their food being prepared by the skilled team whilst enjoying a gentle sea breeze and beautiful ocean views. Alternatively they can order their selections take-out style and head back to their villa to enjoy.

The menu includes:
• Red snapper tacos
• Yellowfin tuna ceviche
• Delicious vegetarian options
• Chocolate chilli churros
• Mexican beer and craft mescal and pisco cocktails.

The design and branding of Ata-Roa draws inspiration from the joyful “Day of the Dead” Mexican festivities, and the ancient Peruvian Nazca Lines. The space will also be used as a pop-up location for various food-related events, including Spanish wine and Basque pintxo nights, and exclusive degustations with Chef Mickaël.

Renowned as a stylish small resort with only 30 villas, Kandolhu Maldives strives to continually innovate with fresh ideas, offering a paradise retreat for their ever-growing repeat guest and new visitors alike.

A small lush island and a sanctuary of tranquillity and beauty, Kandolhu Maldives is ringed by an intricate, pristine coral garden, renowned amongst snorkelers and divers as one of the best in the Maldives. Intimate and tiny, encircled with white sand and surrounded by pure turquoise ocean, this haven of peacefulness is located in the heart of the Maldives, in North Ari Atoll, just a 20 minute seaplane flight from the airport, which feels a world away.

Though designed to 5 star levels, the resort puts a great focus on giving its guests an ‘island experience’ instead of a typical hotel stay. Petite and perfectly formed, this island offers a real Maldivian experience where guests are enveloped in luxury.
