Kurumba Maldives is delighted to announce the reopening of its signature restaurant Thila, the aim of which is to discover and create a cuisine with a touch of the Maldives and an experience that invokes a sense of exploration and discovery.
Formerly the ‘Ocean Grill’; Thila, in the local language, Dhivehi, means ‘reef’ and with this in mind, the restaurant celebrates contemporary interior design, with a feel of the Indian Ocean. The restaurant is constructed from distinctive materials such as lava stone, ceramic, travertine tiles and natural woods with blue finishings to compliment the nearby azure waters and cerulean skies.
The composition of Thila has been enhanced to allow unforgettable experiences for guests, with dining available on the beach front terrace, first floor dining balcony, an overwater open-air deck or set amongst the waterside palm trees, with your feet in the sand, each of these areas has its own remarkable views, looking out onto the Indian Ocean.
The two-storey restaurant boasts high ceilings under a traditional Maldivian palm thatched roof. With unique features such as a pond with a glass walkway and private dining areas, the impressive bar with sea views and an open display kitchen, exudes an airy and relaxed atmosphere.
Premium Breakfast is served seven days a week, from 8am until 11am. Guests can enjoy sitting at the water’s edge and savouring à la carte hot main dishes, coffee, fresh juices and free flow of champagne. Thila is open for dinner seven days a week, from 7pm until 9.30pm. The core of the menu is fresh, quality seafood, prime meat, and products that speak for themselves.
As vibrant as the underwater reefs of the Maldives, Thila offers a chic vibe, complimented with a striking modern interior, chilled ambience and a creative menu. The perfect venue for a truly romantic dinner under the stars, a refreshing and luxurious breakfast, or for savouring fresh cocktails and fiery Maldivian sunsets, by the sea.About Kurumba Maldives.
