The Greenhouse

Eating, with its deeply local roots, has always been central to our physical, social and even spiritual existence, but never have we been more conscious of the ways in which our food is produced and consumed. Our 430m2 greenhouse is one of the Maldives' largest state-of-the-art hydroponic farms that has been purposely designed to promote sustainable farming and consumption. The Greenhouse is a blueprint for the resort's food menus and provides a physical link between the plate and the Executive Chef's mindset - one not just occupied with creating beautiful food, but with the origins of the ingredients used.

Maldives is generally hot and sunny all year around with an average temperature of 25 and 31 degrees Celsius during the day. Being a tropical country, there is no season without rain but we rather have a less rainy season and a rainier season. You can expect less rain throughout from November until beginning of May. The monsoon season runs from May to October. Even when it rains, it is very unlikely to rain for days to an end but might rain for a couple of hours during the day or night leaving plenty of time to engage in watersports or just laze around in the sun simply doing nothing.

A rainy day is an ideal day to partake in one of our wellness activities at Waves Lifestle Hub  or enjoy a soothing and rejuvenating spa treatment at our Explore Spa. Or just enjoy an exquisite meal at one of our restaurants complemented by carefully crafted beverages as Maldives is a very humid country and it is very important to stay hydrated even on a rainy day.
