RESTAURANTS & BARS
Food and drinks at The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives are inspired by the bounty and beauty of the Indian ocean and regional tropics, and guided by The Standard’s commitment to authenticity. We weave special ingredients throughout our menus, some grown on our own agricultural island, and we offer both local and global cuisines that respond to the stunning landscape and ecosystem. We invite our guests to discover new flavors with us, while also indulging in many hotel classics – dishes that are familiar and comforting to our diverse, sophisticated and well-traveled clientele.
Our authentic Maldivian Restaurant, GUDUGUDA is the first of its kind in the Maldives.
We feature traditional celebratory food, cooked by Maldivian “aunties”, the women who carry on the tradition of this remarkable cuisine. Guduguda is the Dhivehi (the local Maldivian language) noun for a special water pipe, and also describes the activity of relaxing and conversing while enjoying it, which we invite you to enjoy in our adjoining lounge. You can dine in the traditional Maldivian style, low on the floor on cushions indoors and out, surrounded by rustic furniture and decorations. Enjoy flavorful coconut curries with carefully selected fresh herbs and spices, delicate and aromatic rice dishes, fresh fruits and vegetables, and perfectly cooked flat breads.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner at KULA restaurant, our all-day dining spot, is a bountiful and casual affair in a breezy and bright dining room. Kula means “colors” in Dhivehi and a colorful menu is exactly what we feature – you can enjoy authentic American, European, Mediterranean, and Asian cuisines, cooked by our diverse culinary team that hales from around the globe. They love what they cook – and we know you will too.
For a feet-in-the-sand casual and supremely fun dining experience, swing by our BBQ SHAK, where fresh seafood and meats are grilled to perfection over coconut shell charcoal, and offered with a variety of house-made sauces, specially paired with each dish. There is no pretense here – just great vibe, beach and reggae inspired music, and lots of great flavors to try. Our friendly servers take your order table side from where you can see our chefs grilling your selections to order, the ocean sits just to your other side.
Head to JOOS CAFÉ for the perfect breezy and shady place to hang your hat. Come in for your daily smoothie, coffee or pastry ritual – we offer savory and sweet breakfasts, and perfectly light but satisfying lunches with fresh salads, wraps and sandwiches. Meals can be served table side, around our plush lounge chairs and tables, or even by the pool. Our indoor lounge areas are lined with a library of vintage books and magazines, some of which explore the history and culture of the Maldives, as well as surfing, underwater exploration, and information about the natural ecosystem. Grab a book, or tune out the world to crank out a few last-minute emails before your go truly offline to relax.
For an indulgent and playful afternoon, TODIS BAR is the spot. Located just off the pool deck, we serve luxurious bar favorites like burgers n’ fries that are universally loved – but with a local culinary twist. And don’t forget to order a drink featuring “toddy,” a special Maldivian coconut nectar you simply have to try. For the kid in us all, you can head over to the custom-made 3D ping pong tables to sip and play at the same time.
BERU BAR serves world-class cocktails and bar snacks as the sun starts to set behind our over-water club. Warm red lights and an oversized disco ball activate the room whilst DJs spin irresistible global beats, drawing everyone to the glass dance floor to move with the waves and sea creatures below.
TONIC is our swim-up wellness bar perched on the edge of the adults-only, over-ocean pool at The Standard Spa, Maldives. Our mixologists collaborate with herbalists to create flavorful cocktails and non-alcoholic tonics and elixirs made from herbs and plants with medicinal benefits.
