Vegan Friendly Luxury Resorts in the Maldives
Amilla Fushi is situated in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll and oozes style with its ultra modern villas. A vegan menu (launched mid 2019) offers multiple vegan options and is available throughout the resort, the chefs are also happy to adjust dishes on the other menus to make them vegan friendly. Expect over water villas with endless sea views and sunsets to write home about. They also run an excellent excursion to swim with manatas at Hanifaru Bay, a memorable experience that’s sure to impress.

Atmosphere Kanifushi is a premium all-inclusive resort and home to the first vegetarian restaurant in the Maldives called Just Veg. Expect towering tall palm trees, fine white sand, crystal clear turquoise ocean and superbly appointed villas with their own beach access. It’s hard not to love this place with the carefree vibes, flowing vegan food and drinks and a typical Maldivian picture postcard landscape.

Having won awards including ‘World’s Leading Water Villa Resort’ you know you’re in for a treat when you check in here. The over water villas are truly exquisite; we had a see through section of flooring in our living room that allowed us to watch the fish swimming below. We had wall to ceiling glass doors which opened out on to the most perfect view (and a pool and steps down to the ocean). Combine all this with a chef team that really know how to cater for vegans, offering food from around the globe and you get a perfect recipe for a very special trip indeed.

OBLU SELECT at Sangeli
Following on from the success of Just Veg at Atmosphere Kanifushi, Atmosphere Hotels and Resorts included Simply Veg as one of the dining options at OBLU SELECT at Sangeli. Simply Veg is a pure vegetarian restaurant with a stunning location and plenty of vegan options available. It’s not just the vegan food you’ll love here, the convenient location (just a short speedboat ride from Male), the selection of beach or over water villas and the ‘Premium All Inclusive’ concept make this a great choice in the Maldives.

Six Senses Laamu
As you would expect from this luxury brand sustainbility is high on their agenda and this means plenty of plant based food. You can expect your accomodation to be of the highest standard, the service to be exemplary and the vegan food to be creative, nutritious and delicious. Ok, maybe the complimentary ice cream and chocolate isn’t the healthiest of options but you’re on holiday right?

Recognised by many as one of the finest resorts in the world, Soneva Fushi is outstanding on so many levels, truly showing us all that luxury travel can be environmentally friendly and good for your health all at the same time. 2019 saw Soneva Fushi take their plant based offerings to a whole new level with the opening of Shades of Green, the first and only 100% vegan restaurant in the Maldives. Check in here for that authentic desert island hideaway experience with a twist of laid back vegan luxury.

Overnight in Malé?
If your international flight means you need to spend a night in Male or you just want to explore a more local side of life, then a short visit to Malé offers an interesting new side to your Maldivian beach escape. Get a glimpse of real life in the Maldives, see some historic sights, visit local markets, check out the beach in the heart of town and meet some of the friendliest people on the planet.
Sala Boutique Hotel offers guests a chance to stay right in the centre of Malé and is the perfect place to stay; they have a Thai restaurant onsite and are able to adapt dishes for vegan guests too. We also enjoyed a tasty vegan pizza with no cheese at Pizza Mia which really hit the spot after hours of wandering the streets; be warned though, you will not be able to wash your pizza down with an ice cold beer though as Male is a ‘dry’ island where alcohol is not available…
