Restaurants

Velassaru is known for its incredible wining and dining. With five restaurants and two bars, each exuding their own individual style and experience it really is hard to choose which one, or stay for seven nights and try out each one once then return to your favourites! If you fancy toes in the sand on the edge of the lagoon, with a specular sunset then SAND is for you. Or if you are after a Japanese meal with a twist, try Tepanyaki where you will be seated over water eating exciting bits of sushi and sashimi. Or true to our name we always recommend Turquoise to experience Continental and Asian influences in a relaxed yet intimate setting.
