As the Maldives is a chain of coral islands, it is no surprise that fish plays an important part in Maldives food. A favourable position on ancient maritime routes brought traders from different cultures and each has left their mark on food in the Maldives.
More recently, Maldives food has been influenced by the growth of the tourism industry and the selection of food in all Maldives resorts ranks amongst the finest available internationally, both in quality and variety.
Traditional Maldives food has a strong emphasis on fish, in particular tuna. Contact with other cultures introduced new spices and seasonings to food in the Maldives. Typical Maldives food dishes include fish soup or curry and rice, with strong influences from Sri Lanka and Kerala featuring coconut, lime and chilli.
As a luxury tourist destination, the variety of food in all Maldives resorts is truly international with Thai, Indian, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Italian, and French restaurants, to name just a few. Every visitor will be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting food in the Maldives.
