Food of the Maldives: authentic home-cooking at Constance Moofushi

Authentic home-cooked food can be a rich sensorial gateway into the cultures and traditions of a country.

Food of the Maldives: Hedhika

Food of the Maldives: Hedhika

So when we discovered that the mother of one of our staff cooked the best hedhika (a delicious finger food popular in Maldives) we asked her if she would make some for our guests at our weekly Management Cocktail.

Dhon Mariyabu, who lives on the neighbouring island of Himandhoo, was thrilled to be able to share her delicious parcels of onion, chilli, curry leaves, coconut, lime juice and tuna with our visitors.

Dhon makes three different kinds of hedhika: gulha which are round, mas roshi which are flat and circular and kavaabu which are dark and oval shaped.

The hedhika are made in Dhon’s kitchen at home on the day of the cocktail event and are then brought to Constance Moofushi by boat so that guests can enjoy this delicious treat fresh from Dhon’s oven.

Constance Halaveli staff rescue reef shark

Constance Halaveli staff hit the headlines this month for the rescue of a small black tip reef shark which had become entangled in a piece of rope.

The shark was spotted by concerned guests, including Austrian journalist Maggies Entenfellner, who saw the shark swimming in the waters around Halaveli with a piece of rope constricting its neck.

The guests alerted Halaveli manager Dominik Kuenstle who set his team the difficult task of catching the shark in shallow waters and freeing it from its dangerous necklace.

We contacted Kolumne to let her know that the shark was safe and well, and she’s since written about what happened in the Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung.

Read the full story and see pictures of our shark rescue at Krone.at.

At Constance Halaveli we work hard to ensure we live in harmony with the marine life which surrounds us.
