Restaurant and Bars


Main restaurant at Angaga Resort Maldives

Angaga offers varied international buffets with lots of choice to suit all tastes. A snack menu is also available from the Cafe/Bar if you get hungry between meal times.

Main Restaurant
The open air restaurant on Angaga is the perfect setting to enjoy your meals. Three meals are served daily buffet-style with half board, full board or all-inclusive options possible. Serving a variety of European and Eastern style cuisines you can enjoy freshly cooked meat, seafood and even some local specialties. There are also fresh fruits and salads served at every meal - sweet tropical papaya and pineapple is the best!

Main bar/cafe
A comfortable cafe in the early hours of the day and a relaxing bar during the later hours of day. The main bar has an extensive sun terrace and sandy ground. You can get small snacks and ice-cream during the day. In the evening this becomes the bar area where you can enjoy a cocktail on the terrace as the sun goes down. However if sunsets are your thing then head to Angaga's sunset bar where the sun will drop into the ocean right in front of you!

Sunset bar
The sunset bar on Angaga is located at the outer end of the water-bungalows base. As the sun begins to drop in the sky be quick to go there because the Maldivian sunset is over very quickly (due to the Islands' close proximity to the equator).
