ZERO DEGREE – POOLSIDE RESTAURANT AND BAR

Guests can choose to dine barefoot in the water, under a thatched roof, in one of the poolside cabanas swathed in fabric, or of course for the ultimate sun lovers, the sunbeds by the pool. At night, thanks to its incredible LED lighting display, the pool transforms into a myriad of tiny stars, reflecting the incredible night skies for an unforgettable midnight swim.

Sea Salt is open every Tuesday at the Zero Degree beach.
MIZU – JAPANESE TEPPANYAKI GRILL
The word Teppanyaki is derived from “Teppan” meaning iron hot plate and “Yaki” which means to grill or fry. That is exactly what you’ll experience at Mizu: The chef will prepare the most delicious fish, meat, and vegetarian dishes as you watch him skillfully cook in front of you with precision. Add to this the use of top-quality ingredients, an extensive choice of sakes and wines, and the characteristic of sitting between the ocean and the tropical Ayada Maldives.
