Tuesday, 25 August 2009 01:48

For those seeking an authentic holiday experience rather than just sun, sand and sea, Olhuveli Beach & Spa Resort ( in the Maldives will not disappoint as they have launched the Catch It And Cook It programme.

Unique to Olhuveli, guests will be invited to spend the afternoon on a boat fishing with a local fisherman/chef and, whilst on board, learn how to scale, gut and cut the fish that they’ve caught.

On arrival at Olhuveli’s very own sandbank island, a cooking demonstration will take place where guests will get a real flavour for Maldivian cuisine and learn how to prepare and season the fish as the locals do with the undivided attention of the chef. This class will then be followed by a traditional Maldivian barbeque, cooking the fish over an open fire, with a variety of local accompaniments so guests can dine on the afternoon’s work! Day-long fishing trips can also be arranged.

Nestled amidst tropical vegetation and shaded by graceful palms, Olhuveli is surrounded by a vast sandy beach and a crystal clear lagoon. Facilities include a selection of restaurants and bars, two large pools and an excellent watersports centre with one of the only licensed kite-surfing schools in the Maldives.

The Catch It And Cook It programme can be booked on arrival at Olhuveli Beach & Spa Resort from only US$69 per adult and US$35 per child under 12 years (10% service charge will apply).
