Journey to the Levant
Prepare to be mesmerised: the Arabesque setting ensures that Fanditha lives up to its name. Meaning “magic” in Dhivehi, the boho-chic décor will instantly draw you in with its plush Persian rugs. Kick off your shoes, feel the sand between your toes, sink into a private cabana and delve into your very own Arabian odyssey.
A shared feast
Influenced by classic mezze from Syria, Lebanon, Morocco and beyond, order a selection of sharing plates with dips, salads and savoury pastries, before moving onto expertly seasoned, grilled meats and fishes. To be accompanied, of course, by piping hot Arabic saaj bread. Linger as the sun sets, the flickering lamps are illuminated, and the magic of Arabia comes alive.
Superb sunsets await
Some of the island’s most cinematic sunsets take place right here. Make Fanditha part of your evening ritual; arrive for our ‘magical hour’ and select one of the canopied day beds, swinging seats or oversized cushions scattered across the beach to drink in the views. Order another icy glass of rosé and an apple-flavoured shisha from our dedicated Shisha Master and allow Fanditha to put you under its spell… this is exotic island life at its most seductive.
Middle Eastern Night
Experience the true taste of Middle Eastern cuisine from the spread prepared by our Chefs. It is a great opportunity to sample classic mezze from Syria, Lebanon, Morocco and beyond.
