Velaa Private Island Maldives is thrilled to reveal its new restaurant concept, FAIY, focused on well-balanced and nutritious meals made exclusively from natural ingredients.

Meaning leaf in local Dhivehi, FAIY sits as an oasis in the tropical garden of the Private Island, serving light and colourful dishes overlooking the greens of Velaa Golf Academy by Olazabal.

The highest quality ingredients takes this wellbeing-inspired restaurant concept to the next level, formulated by a holistic and healthy approach to living by offering clean, unprocessed and whole foods that are as close to their natural state as possible.

Open six days a week, FAIY will be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in an intimate setting, with limited seating. The à la carte menu consists of three different styles, depending on the guests’ health focus. It includes the ‘Detox’ option: a cleansing diet program following a 3-to-7-day plan to reboot your system. There’s also the ‘Fresh’ style serving raw cuisine and plant-based meals, and a ‘Spa’ menu filled with light and low-calorie options following low carbohydrates, vegan, gluten-free or Mediterranean diets.

The beverage menu includes wellness mocktails, smoothies, fresh juices and infusions, packed with antioxidants and vitamins to boost immunity and energy. A wine list is also available, with the sommelier carefully selecting vegan, organic, biodynamic and sustainably certified wines.

The FAIY restaurant menu will complement the philosophies of the new Velaa Wellbeing Village, which also features a yoga pavilion and Pilates studio. Bringing holistic health to the forefront, Eveylaa Wellbeing will also be opening in May to offer a comprehensive range of services including ayurvedic medicine, osteopathy, and ancient holistic treatments.

“Following the pandemic, travellers are looking for two things: beautiful destinations and experiences which prioritise their health. Between work burnouts and the general chaos of life, there’s no better time to book a luxury wellness retreat and take the time to relax and look after your health. Rather than seen as indulgence, wellness is non-negotiable,” Wayne Milgate, General Manager at Velaa Private Island.
