An exciting Arabian-Maldivian gastronomic collaboration awaits guests

this summer.

JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa is set to welcome Aysha Al Obeidli,

who has been dubbed as UAE’s youngest Emirati chef, for a unique

collaboration with the resort’s Maldivian chef, Aminath Abdul Rasheed,

to present a culinary fare with an ensemble of Arabian – Maldivian

flavors on July 1, 2022. Both chefs will collaborate to craft an

Arabian-Maldivian fusion menu that will be available for guests to savor

at Aailaa, the resort’s vibrant international cuisine all-day dining

venue, between July 2 and 12, in celebration of Eid Al Adha.

“We are extremely excited to team up with Chef Aysha to present a

unique menu in conjunction to the Eid Al Adha celebration on the island,

and to combine her expertise with our skilled Maldivian Chef for a local

touch.” says Executive Chef Bir Yadav. “It is a great way to

showcase both cultures through a culinary journey to our guests from the

region and beyond.”

Younger guests will also have the opportunity to learn from Chef Aysha

firsthand during a cooking class with the talented young chef. Children

staying at the property on July 1 can register for the one-time class
