Alila Kothaifaru Maldives now offers The Shack, a secluded sandbank surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of the Maldives, as another subtle, upscale area to dine, unwind, and commemorate significant occasions.

After a five-minute boat ride from the resort, the moment you step onto the jetty, you are instantly transported to a completely different world that will take you on a luxurious adventure with unhindered views of the Indian Ocean, nestled in the house reef that begs you to jump right into its ethereal waters.

The vibrancy of an open kitchen and bar and the sensation of the ocean air provide a fantastic sense of openness and connection to the ocean for a casual eating experience on this jewel of soft powdery white sand amid the turquoise lagoon. Indulge in a daybed or swing hammock to soak in the ocean's view, boost your relaxation with a spa treatment at The Sandbank Spa by Spa Alila, or go snorkelling or scuba diving to discover the undersea world that calls just steps from the sand for even more spectacular.

Two separate visits to The Shack are offered each day, both departing from the resort's main island in a traditional Maldives dhoni. The highlight of each 4-hour day trip's set lunch or dinner menu is the Josper Charcoal Grill Experience, which includes a variety of meats and seafood acquired from regional, sustainable farmers and cooked to perfection in a Josper charcoal fire. By swiftly searing meats over charcoal at temperatures up to 500 degrees Celsius, a cooking technique that dates back thousands of years, the juices are preserved and the meat is infused with mouthwatering smokey flavours.

The Shack bar, which provides a variety of craft drinks created with natural and organic ingredients and premium spirits, is the ideal complement to this flavorful eating experience. If you want a taste of island pleasure, you must sample one of The Shack's famous blended cocktails.
